#BookReview – Anatomy of a Scandal by Sarah Vaughan

35849917You want to believe your husband. She wants to destroy him.

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 โ€“ she is equally certain that James is guilty and determined he will pay for his crimes. 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.

My Review

Wow what a page turner this book was. I read this within a day as I really couldn’t put it down, wanting to find out what exactly had been going on. As soon as I started reading this I could see everything that was happening in my mind’s eye. The characters all felt like real people and I could unfortunately imagine the whole scenario playing out in real life.

I really liked Kate the lawyer. I loved the fact that she wanted to find out the truth and to bring about justice for her clients. I really didn’t like James and his privileged background, I wouldn’t have made a fair juror at all that’s for sure. Sophie was okay, although at times she really annoyed me.

There was a very clever twist in this book that I didn’t see coming, as it slowly crept up on me. Sarah Vaughan is definitely an author I’ll be reading again in the future.

This book has made me realise that I do enjoy a courtroom drama, and I would recommend this for readers who enjoy this genre.

Thanks so much to NetGalley and Simon and Schuster UK Fiction for my digital copy.

    The blurb definitely made it sound like a page turner and how wonderful that it actually was! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s great when a book is so good, you just go through it in a day…and when you’re finished, you’re emerging and are like- where did the day go? ๐Ÿ˜€
    Great review ๐Ÿ™‚
