Synopsis

The Woman He Loved Before by Dorothy Koomson

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. Frightened by what she finds and the damage it could cause, Libby starts to worry that she too will end up like the first woman Jack loved ...

HEAT, The Hot List

SUN

WOMAN

'Gripping and compelling'
CLOSER

'A brilliant and startling novel'
STAR MAGAZINE

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

'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'
DAILY EXPRESS

'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'
DAILY RECORD

'Another worthy addition to the growing Koomson collection'
WOMAN'S WAY IRELAND
