We Slay Book Club October Pick

The Woman He Loved Before by Dorothy Koonsom 

I will never be cramming a book club read in the night before ever again. I really liked this book but towards the end I was skimming like hell just to finish it. You have good, solid characters with an intriguing plot. It surprisingly turns into a bit of a murder mystery. That was definitely the best part of the story. The flashbacks to Eve's diary are both depressing and uplifting. Even knowing how the story ends for her, you can't help but think she's going to get her happy ending. The characters were a bit annoying but I understood most of their actions. Everything came together for an explosive conclusion and I was extremely pleased.
