Reputation is a slick, addictive page turner that you could easily mistake for a real life story. In 2022, women are still fighting for equal rights in many areas and this book highlights these. Emma Webster is an MP who is a campaigner for women's rights. She is divorced and the mother of a 14 year old girl. She becomes the target of online trolls and believes that she is being stalked. When she arrives home one stormy night to a dark house and a body on the floor, she is arrested for murder.
Jumping back and forth, we learn how it came to this and watch Emma try to defend herself in court. It is a political drama/legal thriller of another level. It will make you angry reading what Emma had to endure because she was a woman. Just as Anatomy of a Scandal is about to become a Netflix series, I can see the same future for Reputation. So many layers and themes, it is one you will want to read for yourself.

Reputation is a delightfully wicked political thriller that is a slow burn to begin with, but when it gets going you just can’t put it down! The writing is engaging and fluid, its characters well drawn and complex and it is completely addictive, intense and so very compelling.
All round this is such and entertaining read that I just loved. Make sure that you don’t let this one pass you by!

There are some very powerful scenes in Sarah’s book. We are introduced to MP Emma Webster who has recently appeared in a Guardian article, which has prompted some individuals online, to send her nasty and threatening messages on social media. What Sarah Vaughan highlights here is how scary it must be for people who are in the public eye. Particularly, on social media, people feel they can say anything about that person, without consequences. This is something, I feel, isn’t talked about enough and there needs to be something done to tackle and stop it. It is abhorrent that people can hide behind a computer screen, and think they can get away with anything they put on the web.
Sarah Vaughan also explores the relationship between Emma and her daughter which becomes an important part of this book. We see just how having a mother in the public eye affects her daughter and how scared she is about her mother becoming a target for trolls online and potentially, more dangerous people. The emotion comes across very strongly and Sarah Vaughan delves into Emma’s daughter’s feelings and fears.
I thought it was really interesting the direction in which Sarah Vaughan took this novel and it wasn’t the way in which I expected it to go. We know from the opening page that Emma Webster has done something terrible. I liked how Sarah gradually revealed what happened prior to this event taking place. The tension continued to tick up a notch and I had to know what was going to happen and how Emma would tackle the challenges that come up against her. It was very cleverly wrapped up and it has left me thinking what is happening in the character’s lives.
Since I read Anatomy of a Scandal, I knew then that Sarah Vaughan would become a must-read author for me. Reputation is a highly addictive and a very clever book. I highly recommend it!
at the bottom of Emma’s stairs, things take a turn for the worse and Emma finds herself on trial for murder. It’s a did she/didn’t she scenario. She is determined to protect her family and her reputation at all costs.
I very much enjoyed this story. It’s quite a tense and suspenseful read. It really had me on the edge of my seat at times. It made think about how precarious life is, especially if a person is in the public eye - there’s nowhere to hide! It’s well written with some realistic and strong characters, not always very likeable I have to say. I found it engrossing, absorbing and thought provoking. And quite the page turner. If you enjoy courtroom style thrillers, you’ll love this one!
