About the Author
Lucy Dawson (1870-1954) was a British illustrator best known for her paintings and etchings of sporting dogs and other breeds. She also created art for playing cards, cigarette cards, and numerous postcard series. She accepted commissions by individuals, most notably the Royal Family. She painted the Queen Mother's favorite corgi, Dookie, whose portrait was later reproduced as a Christmas card. She published several dog-related titles, including Dogs As I See Them (1936), Dogs Rough and Smooth (1937), The Runaways (1938), and Lucy Dawson's Dog Book (1939).

I think a lot of us dream of the kind of revenge that she puts into action, and of course it's wrong, the rest of her story would be interesting.

Chicklit heroines are often portrayed as strong and principled - heading off to find a new life (and inevitably a new man) when their lover lets them down. Mia is much more like the average woman - she is very happy with Pete and believes she's found 'the one', so she in deep denial at first, and determined to do anything to preserve the relationship. At first I could relate to her, but as the book progresses her behaviour becomes more and more manic. First time I read it I was waiting for the moment she realises he isn't the man she thinks he is and she is better off rid of him, but the ending is more complex than that. Anyone who has fought to preserve a relationship (or even friendship) must come face to face with the realisation - even if you win, what sort of victory is it the other person simply isn't that in to you?
Amazon aren't doing Dawson any favours by describing the book as a 'fast-paced gripping etc etc', as I tend to assume when I read it that it is a rubbish book they are hyping to the skies, but in this case it is actually true. A fast paced read that kept me gripped the whole way through.
You look at the front cover and the book title and instantly think - Ah a typical chick lit about an unfaithful bloke and a scorned girlfriend finding out about it. I expected there to be this sideline about said woman ditching the cheating loser and 'finding herself' as you usually find in books like. In fact, this is slightly more complicated than that. A little bit darker and quite a surprise. Chick lit meets psychological thriller - it worked.
The writer has either never been in a relationship or has only been in dysfunctional ones. Her sister getting together with her friend predictable too.
No idea what any of the characters looked like, so badly written. Not a thriller.
The story is quite straightforward, Mia finds a text from a woman she believes her boyfriend to be having an affair with, and sets out to destroy their relationship to save hers.
I did start to wonder in parts why on earth she was fighting so hard, and relentlessly, for a man it seemed was so obviously having an affair and had been lying to her, but the story was just so gripping you quickly pass that and want to know what'll happen next.
I read the whole thing in one sitting. Dawson very nearly lost me quite early on when Mia described her first date with Pete and quite sickly said he looked at her and she wanted to cry (had he stepped on her foot I wondered? haha) but it quickly moves on to the main body of the story and was an enjoyable read. I've ordered one of her other books.
Having read “His other lover” now, I feel much the same. Great storyline and an easy read. In fact, I’ve just read the whole lot in one evening. Good holiday read.
