The Magic of Lemon Drop Pie by Rachel Linden

Could goals you made in seventh grade affect your life when you are in your thirties?

Lolly works at the family diner and feels like her life is a lemon.

One day her sister came across her diary and the goals she had written in seventh grade. She looked at those goals and wondered if she still wanted them. She definitely didn’t want a horse.

Aunt Gert summoned Lolly to her cottage after seeing the diary and gave her three lemon drops.

She told Lolly to wish for something she would like to happen, take one of the lemon drops at bedtime, and she would dream about that and live for a day in her wish.

How did that turn out?

Lolly wasn't sure she wanted to live in some of these dreams, but the one where she got to be with her mother would have been one she would love to live in.

The other two dreams were ones about owning her own restaurant somewhere amazing and visiting the man she always loved and never got to be with.

THE MAGIC OF LEMON DROP PIE is a sweet, heartwarming, uplifting read with a character you will fall in love with.

A truly enjoyable read that gives some great advice but also a few heartaches.  5/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.
