Synopsis

His Other Lover by Lucy Dawson

Mia thinks of herself as a grown up. Her twenty-two-year-old sister, Clare, is once again in the death throes of an affair that was always doomed to failure. Mia now understands that relationships need work; that in an adult partnership, passion and spontaneity give way to something different but more lasting. With Pete she knows that her search for 'The One' can stop. Until, tripping over Pete's phone on the way to the loo one night, she reads a text message that sends her blood cold. Everything in it - its tone, the kisses at the end, Pete's evasions about the sender 'Liz' - is wrong, and suddenly the blinkers are off. It's time to get back in the game, and with everything to play for, Mia is about to discover a capacity for deceit she never knew she had. After all, when Happy Ever After is at stake, any weapon at your disposal is fair game - isn't it?

Reviews

Funny, dark and very surprising - a compulsive new breed of chick-lit Louise Candlish Lucy Dawson's debut novel puts every woman's nightmare into words ... You'll identify with the character, regardless of the choices she ends up making. You'll feel her distress, you'll turn pages in anticipation ... His Other Lover is dark, compellin Heat *****

Dawn Lynch

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Judith Sharp

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

Magda North

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.
