The twists and turns as everything unfolds was second to none and every time you think you’d worked something out, you hadn’t! With very strong and expertly drawn characters I found myself invested in them all the way through, though there were some necessary distasteful ones. There are twists and turns galore, as I’ve come to expect from Koomson, but I did not see the ending coming at all and I was shocked, but in a good way. It’s hard to say too much because I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone who might be thinking of reading it.

Once I had finished this course, I was going to make sure I had all the tools to start and finish a book.The complex characters we follow in her latest novel centre on Cleo Forsum Pryce who we first meet in the present day when she is charged with attempted murder. I really liked that although this was clearly set after covid the mentions of covid felt natural and it wasn’t a main plot point but was just referred to in passing as a fact of life.

This is another winner from a very talented author and someone whose books I will always want to read. Both of them love rom-coms and they use this to discuss the guy who was staring hard at Cleo who proves to be Heath Sawyer.My Other Husband is like a gigantic puzzle of obsession, control, secret lives, and past crimes, and I absolutely loved how the pieces slowly came together as we moved between past and present to unravel Cleo’s mindblowing past. As well as the main plot, Dorothy Koomson also makes important social commentary on how Black characters are removed or stereotyped from novels and TV shows and how it has to stop. I have read several of Dorothy Koomson's other novels, including The Ice Cream Girls, The Brighton Mermaid and Tell Me Your Secret, and this novel, My Other Husband is just as good. But now she has decided to walk away from it all including her husband, Wallace, before her past secrets catch up with her.

If you haven’t read anything by this author already, you need to and I will shout about it until you do 😂 Another massive 5 star read for me!

Writing is all she’s ever wanted to do, and baking and murder stories have proved a winning combination. In 2019 Dorothy was awarded the Image Award by The Black British Business Awards to celebrate and honour her achievements. However, as she drafts her final ever episode her life turns upside down and people she knows start getting hurt and it soon becomes clear that someone is trying to frame her for murder and she thinks she knows why. All the words, no matter how pretty, no matter how clever, if they don’t come from the heart, they mean nothing.
