Love Lies & Lemon Pies, Pooch Parlour

Mac & Lottie On Tour!

Love, Lies and Lemon Pies has been out in the big wide world for two whole weeks now, and what a two weeks it has been! From the launch party to school visits to reviews to bookshop events to blog tours and competitions the fun just hasn’t stopped.

In case you missed any of it, here’s the highlights – and apologies for any I’ve forgotten!
