Cool Blogs Haute Dogs: TAMAR COHEN (Giveaway! The Mistress's Revenge


 Toffee

Please welcome author Tamar Cohen and Toffee!

Do you have another book in the works?

Well... the good news is I’ve just finished the first draft of my second book. The bad news is I’m still not entirely sure what it’s about. It’s been a real challenge because it’s written  in the third person, and involves quite a large cast of characters, whereas the first one was all from the viewpoint of one slightly warped individual, which made it much more straightforward to write, if a bit claustrophobic at times. With the second one, I’d come back to it afresh in the morning and find characters I couldn’t even recall having written the night before. It was like ‘who the hell are you? And what exactly are you for?’

What are you reading right now?
It sounds shallow but I tend to have summer reading and winter reading, much in the way that I have summer and winter food. Summer reading is the literary equivalent of a light salad or a plate of fresh fruit, whereas winter reading is much more heavyweight, and the effects linger longer. This afternoon, a rare day of sunshine in London, I was sitting in the garden reading Afterwards, the new thriller by Rosamund Lupton – well-plotted, engrossing and not too taxing.

How many books a year do you read?
I usually read one or two books a week. Thank god for my local library or I’d be stony broke (NB: please Mr Cameron stop with your plans to axe our libraries).

What does your dog like to do while you write or read?
I have the world’s most emotionally needy dog. We got her from a rescue centre in Southern Spain when she was just a few weeks old and she has grossly overdeveloped Separation Issues. When I’m reading or writing, she becomes desperate for attention and will often nudge her nose under the crook of my elbow, jerking my hand off the book or keyboard and then resting her nose on my leg and looking up in what she hopes is an endearing way. But I’m wise to it now. The trick is to avoid eye contact at all costs.

What is your dog’s favorite activity?
Lying in wait by the open back door ready to pounce on any unsuspecting cats or squirrels stupid enough to try to cross our back yard. She’s only a runty little thing, but in her tiny mind she’s fearsome as a lioness.

Description

There’s a fine line between love and hate.


For five years, Sally and Clive have been lost in a passionate affair. Now he has dumped her to devote himself to his wife and family, and Sally is left in freefall.
It starts with a casual stroll past his house, and popping into the brasserie where his son works. Then Sally starts following Clive’s wife and daughter on Facebook. But that’s alright, isn’t it? These are perfectly normal things to do. Aren’t they?
Not since Fatal Attraction has the fallout from an illicit affair been exposed in such a sharp, darkly funny, and disturbing way: The Mistress’s Revenge is a truly exciting fiction debut. After all, who doesn’t know an otherwise sane woman who has gone a little crazy when her heart was broken?

  93. What a great-sounding book! I initially thought of Fatal Attraction at first, but as I read, it put me in mind of a book I read and reviewed when I first started blogging (the name eludes me now), about a woman who finds out her husband is cheating on her and gets revenge in a really funny way! Thanks for the chance to win!
