Reputation by Sarah Vaughan shows that it takes time to build a good reputation, but only a moment to tear it asunder.
Emma, a relatively new politician, is no stranger to facing judgement from the public. However, everything intensifies after a photo shoot meant to make Emma appear powerful and fierce has the opposite effect. Instead of building confidence and trust among her constituents, the trolls threaten violence against Emma.
The situation escalates as Emma’s daughter Flora gets bullied, and Emma finds a body in her home. Soon, Emma will have to face more than just the court of public opinion.
Review of Reputation by Sarah Vaughan
This multi-pov thriller is exceedingly well-written. The reader experiences the story from every angle, with each voice distinct. The beginning was a touch slow, but the rest was gripping.
This novel shines a light on the changeable nature of the media. It reminds me of a very recent courtroom trial that seemingly had the whole world watching.
This was my first time reading Sarah Vaughan, but I’m sure it won’t be my last.
My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Expected Publication: 05 July 2022
