Sarah Broadhurst's view...

February 2010 Debut of the Month.

To ‘take silk’, the term used for a barrister who wants to become a QC, and silk, the sumptuous material much loved by the fashion industry. This word links a high-powered mother and an ambitious daughter in a delicious tale of skulduggery, gangsters, sex and glamour. It is an absolute joy.

Comparison: Penny Vincenzi, Tasmina Perry, Jackie Collins.

Reviews

'Sexy, funny, compelling, Silk sizzles.' Tilly Bagshawe

'Taking on the gossipy tone of the very best Jilly Cooper novels and giving it a modern twist, this is a 21st century bonkbuster with attitude. If you secretly wish Dynasty had never ended and enjoy reading Lace whenever you take a sick day, this is the book for you. Pass the cocktail shaker...' Elle Magazine

'Three controversial women become entwined through money, men and power. Prepare to be swept up in their drama in seconds Heat It is glitz, glamorous, page-turning stuff with bite Sarah Broadhurst Three very different women, lashings of glamour and a story so smart and sexy you can almost hear the heavy breathing. This can only mean one thing. Jackie Collins, Tasmina Perry, Jo Rees. Ladies, meet Rupert - he'll be joining you on the gold-plated bench of bonkbuster brilliance' Daily Record

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
