Release Date :  2011-02-22
Description :  From the author of the acclaimed <i>The Opposite of Me</i>, a poignant, witty novel about marriage, forgiveness, and the choices that give shape—and limits—to our lives.<br /><br />What would you do if your husband suddenly wanted to rewrite all of the rules of your relationship? This is the question at the heart of <i>Skipping a Beat</i>, Pekkanen’s thought-provoking second book.<br /><br />From the outside, Julia and Michael seem to have it all. Both products of difficult childhoods in rural West Virginia—where they were simply Julie and Mike—they become high school sweethearts and fall in love. Shortly after graduation, they flee their small town to start afresh. Now thirty-somethings, they are living a rarified life in their multi-million-dollar, Washington D.C. home. Julia is a highly sought-after party planner, while Michael has just sold his wildly successful flavored water company for $70 million.<br /><br /> But one day, Michael collapses in his office. Four minutes and eight seconds after his cardiac arrest, a portable defibrillator jump-starts his heart. But in those lost minutes he becomes a different man. Money is meaningless to him—and he wants to give it all away. Julia, who sees bits of her life reflected in scenes from the world’s great operas, is now facing with a choice she never anticipated. Should she should walk away from the man she once adored—but who truthfully became a stranger to her long before this pronouncement—or give in to her husband's pleas for a second chance and a promise of a poorer but happier life?<br /><br /> As wry and engaging as her debut, but with quiet depth and newfound maturity, <i>Skipping a Beat</i> is an unforgettable portrait of a marriage whose glamorous surface belies the complications and betrayals beneath.

Ma qualcosa tra loro è cambiato. Michael è diverso, troppo preso dalla carriera e dal denaro, non fa che dimenticarsi gli anniversari e lasciar sola Julia che, dal canto suo, ha smesso di credere che l'amore possa durare per sempre. Saranno un evento del tutto inaspettato e i consigli di Isabelle, migliore amica di Julia e single impenitente ormai pronta al grande passo, a far capire loro che a volte la scelta migliore è mettere da parte l'orgoglio e concedersi una seconda possibilità.

Description :  Lindsey e Alex, sorelle gemelle, non potrebbero essere più diverse. Stesso giorno di nascita, stessi geni, eppure sembrano provenire da due pianeti lontani anni luce l'uno dall'altro. Lindsey è simpatica, intelligente ed è sempre stata brava in tutto, dal primo giorno d'asilo al lavoro in pubblicità che adesso la impegna giorno e notte. Alex, invece, è semplicemente di una bellezza mozzafiato, rossa con gli occhi azzurro-verdi riesce ad abbagliare chiunque le si trovi di fronte, senza neanche fare tanta fatica. Insomma è una di quelle che fanno scomparire qualunque donna stia loro accanto. Con una sorella così, fin da piccola Lindsey ha dovuto lottare per non essere l'eterna seconda. Ecco perché, a ventinove anni, quando, dopo aver dedicato la vita alla carriera, sta finalmente per ottenere un'importante promozione, crede di avercela fatta: per una volta sarà lei la numero uno. Ma in una notte devastante, complice un colpo basso di una collega e troppo champagne, il sogno va in pezzi. Lasciata alle spalle la scintillante Manhattan, Lindsey è costretta a far ritorno a casa, nel Maryland, dove, però, l'attende un'amara sorpresa: Alex non solo sta per sposare Mr. Perfezione, ma flirta spudoratamente con l'amico d'infanzia di Lindsey, l'unico che l'ha sempre preferita all'affascinante sorella. È come se il mondo le crollasse addosso per la seconda volta in pochi giorni. Ma un nuovo lavoro e un incontro inaspettato le faranno scoprire un lato di se stessa che non avrebbe mai osato immaginare. E che le permetterà di prendersi qualche rivincita.

26 La moglie tra di noi

Author : Sarah Pekkanen & Greer Hendricks
Genre :  Mysteries & Thrillers  Books 
Release Date :  2018-06-26
Description :  <b>Prezzo lancio in esclusiva per i clienti iBooks fino al 2 luglio 2018.</b><br /><br /> <b>«Un triangolo amoroso, ma anche molto di più. Non saprete di chi fidarvi, fino allo straordinario finale.»</b> <i><b>Gillian Flynn</b></i><b>, autrice di</b> <i><b>Gone Girl. L'amore bugiardo</b></i><br /><br /><i><b>Ogni relazione ha le sue ombre. Anche il matrimonio perfetto.</b></i><br /><br /> Quando leggerai questo romanzo, farai molte supposizioni. Supporrai che sia la storia di una ex moglie gelosa, ossessionata dalla donna che l'ha rimpiazzata nel cuore del suo ex marito. Oppure penserai che sia quella della ragazza che sta per sposare l'uomo dei suoi sogni, ancora piena di tutte le speranze di una giovane sposa. O ancora ti chiederai se non sia, in fondo, la storia di un triangolo in cui è difficile capire di chi fidarsi. Ti dirai che è una storia d'amore e odio, di seduzione e paura, di tradimento e giochi di potere. Supporrai di aver capito tutto di Vanessa ed Emma e dell'uomo che amano, le motivazioni dietro le loro azioni, l'anatomia delle relazioni che legano l'uno alle altre. Supporrai di sapere chi sono e che cosa muove, davvero, i loro cuori.<br /> Ma ti sbaglierai.<br /> Perché questo romanzo è proprio come la realtà. E nella realtà non c'è niente di vero. Nessuna relazione è senza ombra. Nessun amore è senza segreti. Ci sono solo gli sprazzi di verità dietro le bugie. O le piccole bugie che, insieme, fanno una verità. E la verità è l'unico modo per voltare pagina. <br /> Il romanzo dell'anno è un thriller psicologico dalle mille facce, che vi terrà inchiodati ai suoi colpi di scena, catapultandovi dentro una storia che illumina ogni lato dell'amore, anche quelli che nascondiamo perfino a noi stessi. Compulsivo come <i>La ragazza del treno</i>, è uscito in America con una prima tiratura di 300.000 copie, battendo ogni record di vendite e campeggiando ai primi posti delle classifiche fin da quando è stato pubblicato, nel gennaio 2018.
