review 1: My book was 600 pages and to be honest the first 300 pages were slow moving. I almost put it down permanently. However, there are very few books I've not finished. Perhaps it's the optimist in me that the book will turn around. This is one of those books but for me, it moved from...

review 1: Wow. Words cannot describe how much I loved this book. The characters are so wonderfully written and the story is so sad and desperate that it is a completely absorbing read and what should be a sad book all the way through still made me laugh. The ending is guessable from very e...

review 1: 5/5! I am a huge Dorothy Koomson fan. This is her 8th or 9th book and I own all of them, it's a default buy. But I am still yet to be disappointed by her work. She reels you in and does not let you go until the very end. I couldn't have guessed even one of the many twists and tur...

review 1: This is the third book I read by this author she is a great author but her books get boring half way through and you have to force yourself to finish. All her characters have a problem they are running from. This book Libby was running from asking her husband if he loved or his d...

review 1: At first, I set my expectations too highly upon this book because I have just finished reading The Rose Petal Beach (it's amazing!). I think this book has let me down a bit but there are still some parts where I teared and my heart ached. Overall I would say this book is decently...

review 1: I always enjoy Dorothy Koomson's books - they are never as they seem. I found this one not quite as easy to read as some others, and I wasn't racing to finish it. It is however, well written and you do want to know all the ins and outs. The "whodunnit" keeps you guessing and the ...

English

review 1: Thoughtful, thrilling, and utterly gripping; Koomson has made a horrific topic (rape/victim blame/disbelief of victims, and murder) almost understandable. We hate that Tamia doesn't believe her friend, but we see and feel the horrific weight of her situation, and learn with her t...

review 1: A beautifully written story about love in all its forms, loss, and friendship.Koomson, as always, handles the child's voice perfectly. (So many North American authors get it wrong.) Her characters are distinct and well drawn.Unfortunately, I had a lot of trouble with the characte...

review 1: I LOVE Dorothy Koomson, and found this book gripping and unputdownable from start to finish. However, I do have a couple of criticisms:- I think she deals with too many issues at once, and that can make them seem slightly less believeable in the context of novel.- What really got...

review 1: Dear god that woman writes depressing books!! Depressing in the sense that she puts her characters through hell. Libby, married to Jack, all lovely and happy. She is then involved in a car crash whish really unsettles her. She then finds Eve's (her husband s ex wife) diary. Eve h...

review 1: I usually enjoy Dorothy Koomson's book, but this one was very very annoying. It started off well but at some point it lost all it's pace and the story just got very irritating. Not to mention the shallow and look-a-like characters - Serena and Poppy only differ in their skin tone...
