Managing to build a new life for herself with Wallace, she begins to live her dream, but this soon turns into a nightmare and Cleo is convinced that Heath is back, watching her and doing his very best to harm those people who mean the most to her. Overall, another fab book from the Queen of Thrillers and I’d recommend it to any of her fans or someone looking to try something new in the thriller genre. 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 Koomson is my all time favourite author and I’m yet to read anything I didn’t like from her, this is no exception.

A clever and multi-layered dark thriller, My Other Husband is a gripping read that left me gasping in shock more than once. But now she has decided to walk away from it all – including divorcing her husband, Wallace – before her past secrets catch up with her. Not too sure how to describe this book, other than the fact that this is a unique book, a plot which I won’t forget. 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.On the surface she appears to have it all until her past catches up with her and she has to dismantle the life she’s built for herself piece by piece before anyone finds out about her other husband. 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. 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. All the words, no matter how pretty, no matter how clever, if they don’t come from the heart, they mean nothing.

The twists and turns as everything unfolds was second to none and every time you think you’d worked something out, you hadn’t!

I absolutely love in books when an author takes a fact, such as this and uses it, expands it and builds a very intriguing interesting character such as this. Back in the present, Cleo finds herself under police scrutiny as murders start to occur that mimic the way Cleo crafted deaths for her Baking Detective series. Heath is really nothing at all as we first imagine, and as his behaviour becomes increasingly out of control, and his jealousy and paranoia increases, his actions have such a profound effect on Cleo. I have to admit the start of the book is confusing, you’re thinking how it’s going to play out but also what’s going to happen. The characterisation is excellent even those who are unlikeable are well portrayed and you gasp at some of the dialogue with the racist and sexist comments that Cleo is on the receiving end of especially in her career.
