Libby has a good life with a gorgeous husband and a home by the sea. But over time she is becoming more unsure if Jack has ever loved her - and if he is over the death of Eve, his first wife. When fate intervenes in their relationship, Libby decides to find out all she can about the man she hastily married and the seemingly perfect Eve. But in doing so she unearths devastating secrets.

The Woman He Loved Before Press Reviews

'Another masterpiece from Dorothy Koomson ... A must-read that will have you gripped *****'

'Koomson's latest novel... is perhaps her best and most ambitious yet'
HEAT, The Hot List

'The author has crafted another wonderful tale that has the usual twists you would expect'

'It had us all gripped from start to finish'

'Gripping and compelling'

'A brilliant and startling novel'

'Dorothy Koomson is a fine writer whose prose is compulsive in the same way as chocolate'

'Koomson skilfully weaves Libby's narrative with Eve's diaries in a tale of contemporary life given added piquancy by a dash of Gothic horror ... Social conflict, deception, the nature of marriage itself are all themes in this multi-tiered and satisfying mystery story'

'Forget the bills, forget the dating, forget everything except devouring this wonderfully crafted thriller that twists and turns with gut-wrenching intrigue from the first chapter until the last'

'Another worthy addition to the growing Koomson collection'
