From international bestselling author Dorothy Koomson, a gripping, thought-provoking novel that will appeal to fans of Jodi Picoult and Emma Donoghue, about a woman hellbent on uncovering the truth about her husband's last marriage and its tragic conclusion.
Libby has a nice life with a great job, a gorgeous husband and a big home by the sea. But she's becoming more unsure of Jack's feelings for her - and if he is over the mysterious death of Eve, his first wife.
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.
Eventually Libby stumbles across some startling truths about Eve. As she begins to unearth more and more devastating secrets, Libby becomes frightened that she too will end up like the first woman Jack loved. . .
When Libby Britcham almost dies in a car accident in this complex, richly detailed novel of romantic suspense from British author Koomson (The Ice Cream Girls), she decides to find out more about her handsome, successful husband, Jack, whom she married after a whirlwind courtship. The police wonder why Jack was driving the car when he knew that the passenger-seat air bag was faulty. They already suspect he was responsible for the death of his first wife, Eve. As Libby makes a slow and painful recovery, she seeks to understand Jack's love for Eve, but Jack's lingering feelings for his first wife ("I still find it hard to say her name... a name that claws her memory across my tongue as I speak it") and Libby's inability to move emotionally past the accident threaten their marriage. Eve's diaries, which Libby eventually discovers, provide some startling revelations about Jack and Eve's relationship.
