Today I have a review of Dear Wife by Kimberly Belle, now available from Park Row Books/Harlequin! A big thank you to Harlequin for my copy!
I’m a huge fan of this author and have read all her books! Check out my review of Three Days Missing here.
Beth is on the run… She’s had plenty of time to plan this; a year, in fact. She’s going to leave her violent husband and start over. Beth has a new name and a new city.
Sabine is missing. Her husband Jeffrey returns home to find her gone. The police locate her abandoned car, and it appears foul play is involved in her disappearance.
Sabine was also having difficulty at home, and the detective on the case is devoted to finding out what happened and bringing her home. But where is Sabine, and what does Beth have to do with Sabine’s disappearance, if anything?
Dear Wife may be my favorite thriller from Kimberly Belle. As ever, the writing is smooth, and the tension is present from the very first page. This is one of those one-sitting reads, so carve out the time. It’s told in three points-of-view that keep you guessing. Fast, fast, fast paced!
Overall, I enjoyed every twist and turn of Dear Wife. What I thought I knew was wrong, and I loved it! The big twist was genius! Well-done, Kimberly Belle! I can’t wait for what you bring us next summer!
I received a complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.
About the Book:
From the bestselling author of The Marriage Lie and Three Days Missing comes a riveting new novel of suspense about a woman who, in a fight for survival, must decide just how far she’ll go to escape the person she once loved
Beth Murphy is on the run…
For nearly a year, Beth has been planning for this day. A day some people might call any other Wednesday, but Beth prefers to see it as her new beginning–one with a new look, new name and new city. Beth has given her plan significant thought, because one small slip and her violent husband will find her.
Sabine Hardison is missing…
A couple hundred miles away, Jeffrey returns home from a work trip to find his wife, Sabine, is missing. Wherever she is, she’s taken almost nothing with her. Her abandoned car is the only evidence the police have, and all signs point to foul play.
As the police search for leads, the case becomes more and more convoluted. Sabine’s carefully laid plans for her future indicate trouble at home, and a husband who would be better off with her gone. The detective on the case will stop at nothing to find out what happened and bring this missing woman home. Where is Sabine? And who is Beth? The only thing that’s certain is that someone is lying and the truth won’t stay buried for long.
