I’d not read any books by Linden and didn’t quite know what to expect. I’m trying to wean myself from the lighter, fluffier books of summer. However, THE MAGIC OF LEMON DROP PIE drew me in and kept my interest throughout the entire book. Even kept me up one night. Wow.
Ten years after her mom’s untimely death, Lolly Blanchard is still stuck in Seattle. Still working day and night to keep the struggling family diner from going under. Still worrying about her father and younger sister. And, most of all, still missing the love of her life…
She’s about to turn 33 when her aunt gives her a gift of three magical lemon drop candies. When she discovers a list she made many years ago, she decides to give the candies a try…. For each item on her bucket list for life, she can use a lemon drop which is going to take her back to that time so she will see what she missed. This is when the page turning came for me.
What a wonderful, whimsical novel about second chances. It sure had me on the edge of my chair. A perfect read for summer’s end. Very enlightening.
My review copy was provided digitally through Netgalley and Berkley Publishing, a division of Penguin Random House, for an honest review. It’s so honestly enchanting. Loved it!
