Egy botrány természetrajza


Vegyünk egy karizmatikus és sikeres politikust, annak vonzó és fiatal titkárnőjét meg az angol parlament alsóházának liftjét. Ennyi persze még nem elég egy botrányhoz, de ha hozzátesszük, hogy a felvonóban szexuális aktus történt, már biztosak lehetünk benne, hogy a sajtó érdeklődése sem marad el. Sophie-nak még a férje hűtlenségét sem sikerült feldolgoznia, amikor egy, a házasságukra sokkal fenyegetőbb veszéllyel kell szembenéznie: Jamest az egykori szeretője nemi erőszakkal vádolja. Az asszony kétségbeesetten próbálja megvédeni a családját, szilárd meggyőződése ugyanis, hogy a férfi ártatlan. Ezzel szemben Kate, a tapasztalt ügyész biztos az államtitkár bűnösségében, és mindent megtesz azért, hogy elítéljék a vádlottat. A bizonyítás azonban nem egyszerű, hiszen a tárgyalóteremben egy két ember közötti intim kapcsolat részleteit kell tisztázniuk, amelyre a feltételezett áldozat és az elkövető más-más módon emlékszik. Vajon melyikük hazudik, illetve mond igazat? Sarah Vaughan regénye feszes ritmusú bírósági és megindító családi dráma az ítéletalkotás és igazságkeresés nehézségéről egy olyan helyzetben, amikor a szereplők motivációi a messzi múltba vesznek.

Anatomie skandálu


Je možné, že ani po dvanácti letech manželství o svém partnerovi nevíte vše? Sophiin manžel James je milující otec, pohledný muž a veřejně známá osobnost. A přesto je obviněn z hrozného zločinu. Sophie je přesvědčena, že je nevinný, a zoufale se snaží zachránit svoji rodinu. Kate je právnička stojící na straně obžaloby — zkušená profesionálka, která ví, že u soudu vítězí ten, kdo předloží pádnější argumenty. Přesto vždy pátrá po pravdě. Je si jistá, že James je vinen, a hodlá se zasadit o to, aby za své zločiny zaplatil. Kdo má pravdu? Sophie, nebo Kate? A řídí se i něčím jiným než instinktem a osobními zkušenostmi? Sophie navzdory svému privilegovanému původu dobře ví, že její krásný život není nedotknutelný. Uvědomuje si to už od doby, kdy se s Jamesem v Oxfordu poznali a ona zjistila, jak snadno se potěšení může zvrhnout v tragédii.

Láska s chutí makronky


VEZMĚTE pět docela cizích lidí, které spojuje jen jejich vášeň pro pečení. PŘIDEJTE populární pekařskou soutěž a vypracujte tuhé těsto. OHŘEJTE na správný stupeň napětí. OZDOBTE sladkobolným životním příběhem ženy, která je všechny inspirovala. UZOBÁVEJTE tajně po malých kouscích, nebo spořádejte na posezení. VYCHUTNEJTE SI vytříbenou kombinaci lehkých a silných chutí, lahodných situací a zápletek, z nichž se vám budou zaručeně ještě dlouho sbíhat sliny. Román pro ženy odehrávající se v prostředí populární gastronomické soutěže Hledá se nejlepší pekařka! Každý z čtveřice účastníků má k zalíbení, které našel v přípravě pečených lahůdek, své vlastní důvody. Baculatá Jenny čelí syndromu prázdného hnízda a problémům v manželství. Svobodná matka Claire obětovala životní sen kvůli dceři a nemůže se vymanit ze vztahu s mužem, který ji využívá. Pro bývalou učitelku Vicki je mateřská role náročnější, než původně očekávala, snad kvůli komplikovanému vztahu s matkou. A zdánlivě dokonalá Karen je odhodlaná vyhrát, aniž by její pečlivě vypilovaná maska byť jen na okamžik sklouzla a odhalila, co se skrývá pod ní. Postupem času začnou mezi finalisty vznikat spojenectví a na povrch vyplouvají důvěrná tajemství a soukromé bolístky. Mít vládu v kuchyni se jim daří dokonale, nad svými životy už to však tak jednoduché není. Kniha je průběžně doplňována recepty a životním příběhem slavné pekařky paní Eadanové. I za jejím věhlasem se však skrývá osobní tragédie.

Anatomy of a Scandal


'People are calling this the new Apple Tree Yard, but I'd beg to differ - fast, pacy and with enough twists and turns to keep you gripped right to the end, I'd argue its infinitely better' The Pool `Well-written, pacy and full of twists and turns' Independent 'Gripping. A savage indictment of class, privilege and toxic masculinity in Britain ... Almost impossible to put down' Louise O'Neill 'Deftly plotted ... with an eerie relevance to the current debate surrounding the attitudes to and experiences of women in Westminster, Hollywood and beyond' Laura Barnett `The best courtroom drama since Apple Tree Yard ... sensational' Clare Mackintosh A high-profile marriage thrust into the spotlight. A wife, determined to keep her family safe, must face a prosecutor who believes justice has been a long time coming. A scandal that will rock Westminster. And the women caught at the heart of it. Anatomy of a Scandal centres on a high-profile marriage that begins to unravel when the husband is accused of a terrible crime. Sophie is sure her husband, James, is innocent and desperately hopes to protect her precious family from the lies which might ruin them. Kate is the barrister who will prosecute the case - she is equally certain that James is guilty and determined he will pay for his crimes. `A compelling and cautionary story about how we can never truly know someone else; how even after twelve years of marriage, a wife might not know everything about her husband. Brilliant, shocking, and gripping, once I started, I couldn't stop reading' Claire Fuller, bestselling author of Our Endless Numbered Days `Sarah Vaughan drip feeds revelations while exploring the power and privilege of political elite' Good Housekeeping `Think last year's drama Liar with a dash of Apple Tree Yard' Sunday Mirror 'That rare book that combines great writing, spot-on characterisation and a compulsive, page-turning narrative. I read it in one breathless day. Set against a fascinating backdrop of the Houses of Parliament, the Old Bailey and Oxford University, think House of Cards meets The Secret History. Meticulously researched, this is an outstanding read' Fiona Cummins, author of Rattle `A timely thriller about marriage, but also about power, who wields it, and how that affects who we believe' Stylist `Expertly plotted courtroom drama ... Gripping and beautifully written' Sunday Post `Marks a shift in genre for Vaughan and promises to explore the nature of power and privilege among the country's political elite' Belfast Telegraph `Anatomy of a Scandal has bestseller written all over it' Veronica Henry, author of The Forever House `I was hooked right from the start. So beautifully written, clever and compelling. I was gripped right up to the final page' Claire Douglas, bestselling author of The Sisters and Local Girl Missing `Am I allowed to choose my book of the year in May? Anatomy of a Scandal is astoundingly good - a tour de force. I absolutely loved it' Eve Chase, bestselling author of Black Rabbit Hall `Fearless, thought-provoking, unflinching, fascinating, beautifully written' Rosie Walsh, author of Ghosted `Incredibly authentic, highly involving character drama here, in a story that could easily be ripped from the headlines' Booklikes.com `The Good Wife meets The Affair - fantastic!' @bleachhouselibrary

'Taut, clever, compelling and guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat...' Paula Hawkins, author of The Girl on the Train You think you know her... But look a little closer She is a stay-at-home mother of three with boundless reserves of patience, energy and love. After being friends for a decade, this is how Liz sees Jess.

I could not put this book down' Heidi Perks, author of Now You See Her 'Vaughan explores the darker impulses of motherhood - the fear, fury and despair; the frantic juggling, loss of control and exhaustion - and of course the overwhelming love.

Domestic noir and psyche thriller, it's brave and brilliant' Fionnuala Kearney, author of The Book of Love 'Sarah Vaughan manages to hit that rare sweet spot between satisfying, literary writing and a plot that grips you by the throat.

Art of Baking Blind


'Clever and compelling. I loved this!' Nina Stibbe, bestselling author of Love, Nina There are many reasons to bake: to feed; to create; to impress; to nourish; to define ourselves; and, sometimes, it has to be said, to perfect. But often we bake to fill a hunger that would be better filled by a simple gesture from a dear one. We bake to love and be loved. In 1966, Kathleen Eaden, cookery writer and wife of a supermarket magnate, published The Art of Baking, her guide to nurturing a family by creating the most exquisite pastries, biscuits and cakes. Now, five amateur bakers are competing to become the New Mrs Eaden. There's Jenny, facing an empty nest now her family has flown; Claire, who has sacrificed her dreams for her daughter; Mike, trying to parent his two kids after his wife's death; Vicki, who has dropped everything to be at home with her baby boy; and Karen, perfect Karen, who knows what it's like to have nothing and is determined her facade shouldn't slip. As unlikely alliances are forged and secrets rise to the surface, making the choicest choux bun seems the least of the contestants' problems. For they will learn - as Mrs Eaden did before them - that while perfection is possible in the kitchen, it's very much harder in life.
