TW: racism, grooming, paedophilia, murder, sexism, misogyny, harassment, mental health, rape ⚠️ This was a really good slow burner that hits you with twists and turns when you least expect it. Dorothy Koomson is my all time favourite author and I’m yet to read anything I didn’t like from her, this is no exception. My Other Husband is fantastic in so many ways, it draws you into Cleo’s life, like your standing outside the window watching the drama unfold. Bringing it back to present day and Cleo has moved on, she’s now married to Wallace but he’s connected to her past in such a way that it’s impossible that the past will not come back to haunt Cleo.

The dangerous obsession within the relationship of husband and wife and the guilt when the wife found out…. Who is trying to frame Cleo and just why is she pressing self-destruct on a life she is seemingly happy with? Usually, this would be a positive for me as I prefer to be shocked than for a story to go down the obvious route, but I did feel slightly let down when a new twist came into play. Dorothy was featured on the 2021 Powerlist as one of the most influential Black people in Britain and appeared in GQ Style as a Black British trailblazer.

They absorbed the nonsense and made me not mind as much if they went off on random tangents that were nothing to do with me. I didn’t know what to expect from this book, I really had no clue what would happen and how it would end. What I thought was going to be a crime/ thriller, turned out to be a boring story with a few murders briefly mentioned.

The story is told through two timelines where we meet Cleo in the present as she is going through a divorce and being faced with a murder investigation, and in the past when she is at university and entering into her first relationship with the peculiar Heath. There was a lot of angst and emotion in the writing and you fully felt it all - sometimes I wanted to scream at Cleo and ask her what the hell she was doing.The plot was unique and unpredictable, and the twist at the end which I completely did not see coming.

Dorothy Koomson has always been one of my favourite authors - I have absolutely loved every single one I have read, and this one didn't disappoint. Never one to rest on her laurels, Dorothy Koomson really takes things to another level with My Other Husband .

Why has she told the TV company that no more shows will be made, and why on earth is she divorcing Wallace? I did like some of the characters, especially Sidney, but felt that a good story became a little fantastical when all was said and done.
