About The Book:
As a politician, Emma has sacrificed a great deal for her career--including her marriage and her relationship with her daughter, Flora. A former teacher, she finds the glare of the spotlight unnerving, particularly when it leads to countless insults, threats, and trolling as she tries to work in the public eye. As a woman, she knows her reputation is worth its weight in gold, but as a politician, she discovers it only takes one slip-up to destroy it completely. Fourteen-year-old Flora is learning the same hard lessons at school as she encounters heartless bullying. When another teenager takes her own life, Emma lobbies for a new law to protect women and girls from the effects of online abuse. Now, Emma and Flora find their personal lives uncomfortably intersected--but then the unthinkable happens: A man is found dead in Emma’s home, a man she had every reason to be afraid of and to want gone. Fighting to protect her reputation, and determined to protect her family at all costs, Emma is pushed to the limits as the worst happens and her life is torn apart.

My Review:
Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History.

Having read and enjoyed both Anatomy of a Scandal and Little Disasters by this author I was so excited to receive this from NetGalley, and Sarah Vaughn did not disappoint. This is a taught political/court room thriller and I was sucked into it from the start. I felt the tension the main character went through and the love for her daughter. I liked the political aspect and the way women are treated in a male dominated world. I was so absorbed into the story that I managed to read it in a couple of sittings, staying up way past my bedtime last night. I loved the different points of view and getting into each characters head, I love books formatted that way. Such a timely novel with internet stalking, young women being taken advantage of and bullying . Such a fantastic story, that will keep you on the edge of your seat and is deserving of all the stars.

With many thanks to NetGalley, Sarah Vaughan and Atria Books, Emily Bestler Books for the giving of the ARC.
