Koomson Does It Again! When the past catches up to the present, the book shifts into the deeper past, through Eve’s diary entries. The changing viewpoints allows Koomson to give us a perfect understanding of the feelings each character has, and the relationships between them.
Anyone who is expecting this to be chick lit – as well they might from the title, front cover and the blurb on the back – will be disappointed. I grew up in London and then grew up again in Leeds when I went to u Hello, my name’s Dorothy Koomson and I’ll try to make this bit that’s all about me as interesting as possible. It sets it all up for the ending, it explains everything that happened, and it was the catalyst for everything in the book, basically.
I was genuinely hooked on the mystery and I has to keep reading to see how it turned out.
I imagine many readers will be surprised by some of the plot developments, but I found most of them quite obvious. Amazon Prime Music Stream millions of songs, ad-free. Estou certa que sim.

Este foi o livro que mais gostei da autora, a seguir “A filha da minha melhor amiga”, que para mim, foi o primeiro que li dela e continua a ser o que mais gostei.
I think Koomson balanced it nicely, but it did still make me feel slightly uncomfortable, just through the choices Eve had to make.
A Tesco-value version of Daphne du Maurier’s “Rebecca”. Libby has always wondered whether she could live up to the love Jack felt for his first wife. I thought the way DK brings Eve into the present time was very clever.

BOOK REVIEW: THE WOMAN HE LOVED BEFORE BY DOROTHY KOOMSON – The Book Lover’s Boudoir
The first section of the book shifts between the present the accident scene and the past Befors courtship of Libby, told from the perspective of both Jack and Libby. 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.
She works as an exotic dancer, an escort and a prostitute to make ends meet. But since my sister kept telling me to read it and I quite enjoyed another Koomson book, I becore happy to give it a go.
People just don’t think like that. Libby is marr Dorothy Koomson’s early books were quite clearly in the chick-lit category, written from the perspective of a Black British woman. This isn’t a book I would ordinarily choose to read. Whilst Jack’s sections in the book are the smallest, he features strongly in both women’s stories. The diaries, while well structured, are not generally a form of story telling I’m fond of.

The Woman He Loved Before: : Dorothy Koomson: Books
Much like her, I could understand completely why she was desperate to know everything there was to know about Eve; who wouldn’t be in her position? My only slight sadness was that we only saw a child briefly in the story, when Libby’s nephew Benji appears.
I need to buy a copy of both books.
