This book was sent to Traveling With T for review consideration.
Summary: 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.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
Back last November, I attended the Louisiana Book Festival and one of the panels was Tiffany Quay Tyson and Kimberly Belle talking about their books ( I forget the panels name- but it was a really cool vibe with them 2 talking- the only thing missing: WINE!)
Anyway, Kimberly’s upcoming book was mentioned in this panel and I made a note to request it. Fast forward several weeks/ couple or 3 months later and Steph’s Novel Fiction and I have been chatting via Instagram and Twitter and decided to buddy read Dear Wife.
We did our buddy read a week or so ago- and both of us flew through the book. I had 2 left field theories- one was brought about by reading a message that Steph sent me (that turned out to be wrong). The other theory was brought about by something a character revealed in a very off hand way- and it spun my mind to thinking something. Chapters later, my spidey-senses were tingling as evidence began to mount to support that theory.
After we both finished reading, we began discussing things and how we both had come to the correct theory- although, we came to the theory in different ways.
What I liked:
The cover. This is one that will stay on my shelf for years.
The plot. It kept me guessing and then glued to the book. I DID NOT want it to end.
How the book was laid out. I love hearing from multiple characters.
Bottom line: For me, this book was SO good. I loved the characters, the mounting suspense of each chapter, and the ultimate final conclusion. I highly recommend Dear Wife.
