Dear Wife
Dear Wife | Kimberly Belle
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.

So much #LitsyLove for my birthday that I'm taking my time to write thank you notes and share pictures. This has been a wonderful birthday & although it is almost a week later...I still feel blessed. Thanks for the encouragement. (tagged book was Misty's current read at time of mailing ~ I enjoy that part of each letter.)

I forgot to post my last audiobook. I'm normally not a fan of thrillers but I think I found a new nitch I enjoy. The "domestic drama" thriller. This one did not disappoint. I guessed only one of the big twists but I definitely didn't see where the end was heading until it was there. #audiobook #scribd #domesticdrama #thriller

Am I enjoying this book? I think so.
Do I completely understand what is going on? No
....the lack of understanding keeps me wanting more.
Anyone else feel this way?

4 ⭐️- This twisty, compulsive, ‘housework ain‘t gettin‘ done‘ kind of thriller was a great summer read. This was my first Belle read but it won‘t be my last.

I‘ve been a fan of Belle‘s since reading The Marriage Lie then Three Days Missing both w/female driven characters. I love her writing style as you never know where she‘ll go in her stories, she loves keeping her readers in complete suspense. This is no exception! I truly enjoyed the mystery + dark thrilling twists following Beth + the other characters. Everyone lies + has secrets. Who can you trust?? Totally mind-blowing - very entertaining!!

Two women - one running from an abusive relationship and with escape plans that were in the making for a while and the other we are unclear about.

Ms. Belle expertly gives the reader tidbits of information and makes us "think" we are solving the mystery, but you will need to be an outstanding detective to figure it out.

The story line will keep you turning the pages until the chilling ending. 4/5

Another domestic thriller with a missing wife...yes, this has been played out several times before, but Belle‘s take is fresh, whip-smart and expertly executed. Of course there are clues along the way, but I promise that there are several whiplash inducing twists that will completely blindside you. This is an exceptionally executed thriller taut with suspense. Without giving anything away, you will be delighted that the ending is a total surprise.

🌟🌟🌟🌟💫

In Kimberly Belles addictive new psychological thriller we follow Beth as she runs from her abusive husband. Meanwhile, we are following Jeffrey and Detective Marcus as they search for Jeffrey‘s missing wife, Sabine.
Who is Beth? Where is Sabine?
Nothing is as it seems in this suspenseful, fast paced, clever, domestic thriller.
I highly recommend

Releases date June 25th 2019

Belle stumped me on this one. I kind of thought I knew where it was going – but I was wrong. I knew precisely when I realized I was wrong – as a sliver of cold ice seemed to pierce my lungs. Suspenseful and intriguing, it was really hard to put down. I just wanted to lose myself in it.

Well, I would have normally read this thriller much faster, but with guests staying with us for the holiday weekend I hardly read at all! But our house is back to normal now, and I spent the morning finishing up this #NetGalley book- all in all, an enjoyable read that despite being a bit predictable was still very entertaining and exciting!

A woman, Beth, is on the run from her abusive husband, but has she put enough distance to truly escape him?

Meanwhile, in the same town, another woman, Sabine, has gone missing... and her husband doesn‘t seem like too good of a guy.

Are Beth and Sabine related somehow??

Ugh I wish I hadn‘t seen this twist coming!! Still, a fun ride and worth a read.

Thank you to NetGalley for this advanced copy in exchange for an honest review!
