A Heart-warming romantic comedy
Lydia knows first-hand that 'having it all' isn't everything it's cracked up to be. As far as she's concerned, when it comes to job versus family, it's a case of one or the other. And whilst most women her age have spent years climbing the corporate ladder, she's made a career out of bagging her perfect man. Now, nearly thirty and still single, Lydia wonders if she'd made the right choice.
Realising the time has come to take stock, she goes against her family's wishes and decides to travel, in the hope of finding a new direction. At least that's the plan.
So when Sam comes along, she decides to tell a little white lie, re-inventing herself as a professional chef - not exactly the best new identity for a woman who can't cook. But the truth can’t stay hidden for long and when her family show up unexpectedly things go from bad to worse…
Can Lydia find love? Will she ever learn to cook?
Little White Lies and Butterflies is a heart-warming comedy about finding your place in the world.

After reading and enjoying Suzie’s last book I had no hesitation in jumping into Little White Lies and Butterflies. Such a cute title. As soon as I had read a few sentences I could tell it was going to be a while before I re-surfaced and came up for air or food! It’s such an easy story to slide into, a super adorable romantic comedy. Lydia our leading lady is approaching the big 30 and realises her life plan of finding her ideal prince charming hasn’t quite materialised as she wanted. Taking a long look at herself she decides to escape the crazy, mad family celebration that is likely to occur on her birthday and she hot foots it to a Greek island. This is where she gets herself into a bit of a pickle, the white lies emerge, the worst or most hilarious one depending on how you view it is her stating she is a world class chef. Constantly referring back to her ‘perfect’ man criteria she refuses to recognise that an ultra sweet guy called Sam deserves any of her attention. Sam is rather determined to make an impression though, but therein lies even more misunderstandings. After Lydia has dug herself into a fairly deep hole of untruths her madcap family arrive unexpectedly to ensure she celebrates her birthday! I got pretty frustrated with Lydia, her ideals certainly weren’t mine and I just wanted to shake her on occasions. Sam is a darling and has far more patience than Lydia ever deserved. Her family provide some great light entertainment, I could just picture the boisterous twins, the teenager with her head stuck in a phone, chatty mum etc .. eventually Lydia realises that family are beneficial. I loved the atmosphere, could salivate at the delicious food and smell the bougainvillea .. it was like going on holiday via my armchair. Suzie is a captivating storyteller, I thoroughly enjoyed Little White Lies and Butterflies. It’s one that you will find hard to put down and will leave a smile on your face when it’s finished. My thanks to Suzie and Bombshell books for my copy which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
