Book Review Of “Dear Wife” By Kimberly Belle @harlequinbooks #ParkRow

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.

This was my first Kimberly Belle Book, and while I predicted the whole plot, I still really enjoyed the book. It was insanely addictive, and I think I devoured it so quickly because I wanted to be proven wrong. Belle wrote a great book, and I really loved the alternating chapters/characters. This is one of those books that really can be classified as unputdownable. I’ve been in a Thriller funk, and this one was exactly what I needed to be pulled out of it.

I liked Belles character development, and the dark and creepy way that she writes them. I will say if you take any issue with Domestic Violence, this book may be hard for you to read, and she does not write about it lightly. It does get pretty detailed. I am really impressed, and now I need to read the other Belle novels that I have sitting on my bookcase!

This book is out June 25th, I will include the Goodreads Link Below.

He robbed me of the ability to trust in others, made me forget so many of them come from a place of kindness.
