My first experience of author Dorothy Koomson, was on reading one of her earlier novels a couple of years back, 'My Best Friend's Girl' which I enjoyed. Despite this, I never got round to reading any of her other novels, until I spotted this on the shelf at Asda earlier this year at a bargain price of £3. I was in need of a book to read and so bought it, quietly confident after reading the blurb on the back of the book that this would also be one to enjoy. Libby has a good life and a lovely home with Jack, her gorgeous husband. However, as time passes she starts to become more and more unsure if Jack has ever really loved her and if he is actually over the ... Read the complete review

I have been looking for a book to read which takes me into another world and gives me a form of escapism. I enjoy reading books which really take me in and I find hard to put down. This book did just that, however, I haven't finished it with a feeling that it was one of the best books I've ever read but it was perfectly fine. Dorothy Koomson I have read all of Koomson's books now so I think that reflects that she does appeal to me. All of her books I enjoy reading although none of them have ranked in my favourite reads. Her books include: My best friend's girl. Marshmallows for breakfast The Cupid Effect Ice ... Read the complete review

So-called chick-lit is a genre that I dip in and out of, finding that in general it is somewhat oversubscribed and as such good novels are outnumbered by not so good. However there are authors who provide exceptions to the rule and Koomson is one of these. She is one of the few authors in any genre of whom I have read all their novels. The Woman He Loved Before is the latest one of these and is currently available in hardback. We meet Libby in the depths of a traumatic situation. As she slowly begins to recover from this situation we learn in flashback of how she met her now-husband Jack and the history of their relationship. This itself has ... Read the complete review

Although I have an unwritten rule not to buy hardbacks, they are too expensive and not as much fun to curl up with, I had to make an exception when I saw the New Dorothy Koomson book for a fiver in Sainsburys. I first fell in love with her books when I read My Best Friends Girl, and have adored every book since. Her books tend to be darker chick lit with great characterisation and unpredictable endings , and this one is no exception. Libby is happily married to Jack, sharing a lovely home by the sea. However Libby has always felt the shadow of Eve, Jack's late wife, hanging over her. Her insecurities surface when she and Jack are involved in a car accident, ... Read the complete review

I have read all of Dororthy Koomson's books and was eagerly awaiting this one; it did not disappoint! I thought it would be near on impossible to top her previous novel 'The Ice Cream Girls' but she definately has. The story starts with married couple Libby and Jack and we learn their story of how they met and how they got to where they are. Although this is interesting and necessary for the back ground, it really starts to get going when Libby finds Jacks late ex-wife Eve's diaries. The second section of the story is told by Eve through her diaries. This section really had me gripped, it starts when Eve is a teenager and you read on to see her life ... Read the complete review
