Libri di Sue WatsonLingua:Libri Italiani
Marianne ha la vita che ha sempre sognato. Una bellissima casa, affacciata sulla strada più esclusiva del quartiere. Tre splendidi bambini, che sono il suo orgoglio e una fonte inesauribile di gioia. A volte soffre ancora per il suo passato: i ricordi vaghi della madre, morta quando lei era ancora piccola, i giorni trascorsi in affidamento… Ma Simon, suo marito, è sempre accanto a lei. È un chirurgo di successo ed è il miglior marito che una donna possa desiderare. Fiori, regali, viaggi. Non c’è niente che non sia disposto a fare per lei. Un giorno però, mentre fanno colazione, Simon le racconta di una nuova collega e il modo in cui si sofferma sulle poche sillabe del suo nome, “Caroline”, scatena in Marianne un’ondata di gelosia. Non vorrebbe saltare a conclusioni affrettate, ma Caroline diventa per lei una vera e propria ossessione. Ha bisogno di notizie sulla donna misteriosa. Più scava nella vita di suo marito, però, più l’ossessione si trasforma in paura. Forse non dovrebbe preoccuparsi di essere stata tradita, dovrebbe solo pensare a mettersi in salvo.

Suo marito è disposto a tutto pur di nascondere il suo segreto

Un grande thriller
Lei è perfetta. Ma suo marito può veramente fidarsi di lei?
Clare ha deciso di prendersi una pausa. Il suo è stato un anno difficile e ora vuole rimettersi in sesto. Quale migliore occasione di una vacanza in una splendida villa sulla costiera amalfitana, insieme a tutta la famiglia?
Il marito, Dan, ha molto da farsi perdonare, eppure giura che ha intenzione di restare per sempre al suo fianco. Ma Clare può fidarsi davvero di lui?
L’arrivo di suo fratello Jamie, dopo anni di viaggi all’estero, la rassicura. Questa volta, però, Jamie non è solo. Ha portato con sé la sua novella sposa, una donna che nessuno ha mai incontrato prima. Ella è l’esatto contrario di Clare: affascinante, determinata, sicura di sé. E conosce un segreto su sua cognata, qualcosa che, se rivelato, potrebbe sconvolgere l’intera famiglia. Ma c’è qualcuno che farà tutto il possibile per assicurarsi che la verità non venga mai fuori…

Love, Lies and Lemon Cake is a hilarious, bittersweet comedy about taking your life back before it’s too late.
Faye Dobson has lost her sparkle. Living on film star fantasies and vague memories of a marriage that once was, she can’t help feeling that life is passing her by. She dreams of being whisked to Paris for dinner, making three wishes at the Trevi fountain and having sex under the stars. But the wrinkles are multiplying, her husband’s passion is for plumbing, and the nearest she’ll get to Rome is a take-away pizza.
So when Faye meets Dan the gorgeous Australian surfer guy working in the local deli she can’t help but wonder what it would be like to see the world. He is blonde, tanned, ten years younger and bakes the most amazing lemon cake. Unlike her husband Dan actually listens to Faye, his smile makes her feel fizzy inside, and when he smiles... Oh. My. God.
But is Faye being silly? What would Dan see in someone like her? Even if he did have feelings for her, could she give up everything to be with him?
If you enjoyed Love, Lies and Lemon Cake, don't miss its hilarious sequel Love, Lies and Wedding Cake.

You’ve been excited about this getaway for months – at last, a chance to reconnect with your husband at a secluded island resort. But when he unexpectedly calls you from the beach, you hear the urgency in his voice. Something is very wrong.
The beautiful waitress from the restaurant last night has been found lying dead in the sand. And the police want to question your husband about it.
Sure, you saw him glance at her over dinner a few times, but you know he didn’t have anything to do with the poor girl’s death. So why is he asking you to lie to the police that he was with you all night? And where did he go in those missing hours?
When he returns to your beautiful sea-view suite, things get heated and he accuses you of being jealous, just like he always does. Yes, the waitress was overly flirtatious with your husband, but you didn’t actually wish her any harm. Not really.

Marianne hat ein Leben, von dem andere nur träumen können. Sie wohnt in einem schönen Stadthaus in der besten Straße des Viertels und hat drei aufgeweckte Kinder, die ihr ganzer Stolz und ihre Freude sind.
Das hat sich Marianne stets so gewünscht, denn sie wird immer noch hin und wieder schmerzhaft an ihre Vergangenheit erinnert: an den Verlust ihrer Mutter und das Aufwachsen in Pflegefamilien.
Auch ihr Mann Simon ist immer für sie da. Er ist charmant und als erfolgreicher Chirurg ist ihm nichts zu gut für seine Familie: Blumen, Geschenke, Reisen nach Frankreich, alles was man sich nur wünschen kann.
Doch dann sagt Simon plötzlich den Namen einer anderen Frau, und die Art und Weise, wie er ihren Namen ausspricht, Caroline, lässt Marianne einen Schauer über den Rücken laufen. Aber sie weiß, dass sie diesen Anflug des Misstrauens nicht zu ernst nehmen darf.
Früher hätte sie sich mit ihrer Arbeit abgelenkt, doch Marianne hat ihre glamouröse Karriere hinter sich gelassen, als sie geheiratet hat. Eigentlich würde sie sich einer Freundin anvertrauen, aber sie ist zu sehr mit ihren Kindern beschäftigt, und außerdem mag Simon die wenigen, die ihr noch verblieben sind, nicht besonders.
Zuerst beginnt Marianne fast zufällig, mehr über Caroline zu erfahren. Doch als sie einmal angefangen hat, kann sie nicht mehr aufhören. Denn was sie herausfindet, zwingt sie dazu sich zu sorgen, ob die Frage nicht »sollte ich eifersüchtig sein«, sondern »sollte ich Angst haben« lauten müsste.
Fans von Girl on the Train und Alleine bist du nie, die auf der Suche nach einem düsteren, packenden Psychothriller sind, werden von All die kleinen Lügen begeistert sein.
Was Leser über All die kleinen Lügen sagen:

Noch nie habe ich beim Lesen eines Romans so starke Emotionen empfunden … Das Buch ist wirklich eine fesselnde Lektüre, die die Spannung aufbaut und ein brillantes Ende hat, weshalb ich den Roman nicht aus der Hand legen konnte … Lesen Sie es, Sie werden nicht enttäuscht sein.« Goodreads Rezensent, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
»Das Ende ist ein WOW, aber man muss es lesen, um zu verstehen, warum! Direkt in meine Top 10 des Jahres und eine wirklich tolle Lektüre … Düster, verstörend und einfach alles, was man sich von einem Psychothriller wünscht und mehr.« Goodreads Rezensentin, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

'fizzes with warmth, humour and tenderness, from the first page to the last. . . I adored it' Cathy Bramley, author of Appleby Farm
Does first love deserve a second chance?
When she was almost seventeen, Rosie Draper locked eyes with a charismatic student called Peter during their first week at art college, changing the course of her life forever. Now, on the cusp of sixty-five and recently widowed, Rosie is slowly coming to terms with a new future. And after a chance encounter with Peter, forty-seven years later, they both begin to wonder 'what if' . . .
Told with warmth, wit and humour, We'll Always Have Paris is a charming, moving and uplifting novel about two people; the choices they make, the lives they lead and the love they share.
Sometimes her past still hurts: losing her mother, growing up in foster care. But her husband Simon is always there. A successful surgeon, he’s the envy of every woman they’ve ever met. Flowers, gifts, trips to France – nothing is too good for his family.
Then Simon says another woman’s name. The way he lingers on it, Caroline, gives Marianne a shudder of suspicion, but she knows she can’t entertain this flash of paranoia.
In the old days, she’d have distracted herself at work, but Marianne left her glamorous career behind when she got married. She’d speak to a friend, but she’s too busy with her children and besides, Simon doesn’t approve of the few she has left.
It’s almost by accident that Marianne begins to learn more about Caroline. But once she starts, she can’t stop. Because what she finds makes her wonder whether the question she should be asking is not ‘should she be jealous’, but... ‘should she be scared’?
Fans of The Girl on the Train and I Let You Go looking for a dark, gripping psychological thriller, with a final twist that will put their jaw on the floor, will love Our Little Lies.

Hannah has done everything to make sure her life is safe and secure. A long way from her unstable childhood growing up in foster care, she’s content with her sweet, little, messy apartment and her satisfying job as a social worker. She quietly worries that, aged 36, she might never fall in love. But otherwise her life is where she wants it to be.
Until, encouraged by her best friend to join a dating app, she meets Alex. He’s irresistibly handsome. He loves the same music as her. The same food as well. They both dream of travelling the world but agree they’d be equally happy escaping to a cottage by the beach in Devon. Both of them would love to own a Labrador one day. It’s like he’s made for her. It’s like he’s too good to be true.
Hannah’s friends aren’t so sure about him. But Hannah thinks he’s perfect.

Kat remembers the days when her only daughter Amy wouldn't leave her side. Amy was the baby who cried when you walked out of the room, the toddler who was too shy to speak to strangers, the small child who clung to Kat's legs in the school playground.
But now Amy is grown up, and Amy is gone – to university in a town several hours away. Kat's house – which once felt too full, too noisy, too busy – is deathly quiet, and Kat awaits the daily phone call to tell her that her beloved daughter is thriving and happy.
Until the day Amy doesn’t call, sending Kat into a panic. Her husband and friends say she’s being paranoid – surely Amy is just out, having fun? But Kat feels sure something is very wrong – she knows her daughter, and she would never just disappear.
As the hours turn into days, her fears are confirmed: Amy is missing. But there are secrets about her daughter that Kat doesn't know about yet. And the truth about Amy's whereabouts may be closer to home than Kat could ever imagine...
