Getting Even

Getting Even

Author: Sarah Rayner Format: Paperback Release Date: 14/02/2013

How would you feel if your best friend at work betrayed you? If she was secretly having an affair with an influential colleague, beat you to a coveted promotion, and then became your boss? What would you do? For Ivy, there's only one way forward: revenge. Set in the heart of Soho's ad land, where emotions run even higher than salaries, Getting Even is an unputdownable tale of jealousy, packed with bed-hopping, bonding and backstabbing. About this book Most readers today know Sarah Rayner from the bestselling One Moment, One Morning, and her new novel, The Two Week Wait. But before that she published two rather different novels - The Other Half (in 2001) and Getting Even (in 2002). Many people have asked how they can get hold of these titles, so we are delighted to be reissuing them both, fully revised and updated by the author. Getting Even is a fun, sexy read based on Shakespeare's Othello and set in Soho's ad land. Sarah hopes you find it hugely enjoyable.

One Moment, One Morning

One Moment, One Morning

Author: Sarah Rayner Format: Paperback Release Date: 17/06/2010

The Brighton to London line. The 07:44 train. Carriages packed with commuters. A woman applies her make-up. Another occupies her time observing the people around her. A husband and wife share an affectionate gesture. Further along, a woman flicks through a glossy magazine. Then, abruptly, everything changes: a man has a heart attack, and can't be resuscitated; the train is stopped, an ambulance called. For at least three passengers on the 07:44 on that particular morning, life will never be the same again. Lou witnesses the man's final moments. Anna and Lou share a cab when they realise the train is going nowhere fast. Anna is Karen's best friend. And Karen? Karen's husband is the man who dies. Telling the story of the week following that fateful train journey, One Moment, One Morning is a stunning novel about love and loss, about family and - above all - friendship. A stark reminder that, sometimes, one moment is all it takes, it also reminds us that somehow, and despite everything, life can and does go on.
