Apple Tree Yard by Louise Doughty is one of my favourite books that i have read this year. I would really love to read more books by Louise Doughty at some point. This novel is out June 2013 & can be brought from or any major book shop.

This brilliant novel is full of sexy passionate liaisons. Yvonne goes to the House of Parliament for a committee meeting. When yvonne takes a break for lunch she is followed by an attractive tall man in glasses & a dark suit.  Mark takes Yvonne to a chapel underneath the Hall of Westminster where they both have sex without knowing each others name. This leads to a sexy affair, where they met for coffee in coffee shops and have reckless sex afterwards.

As  yvonne & mark are both married and have two kids, I could feel my self  shouting no yvonne dont go with this man!.   Yvonne heads to the Dawson complex to a party. Once Yvonne is at the party she starts talking to a work colleague George Craddock.  Yvonne thinks she has to much to drink & George and Yvonne decide to walk together to get the tube home. But before they leave the party George has to collect his brief case from his office. George and Yvonne both go to George’s office where once they are both inside George’s office George hits & rapes Yvonne.
