Having someone read to you is a joy we come to appreciate as a child and recently I indulged and listened to Dear Wife by Kimberly Belle. Easy to follow, full of suspense with cliffhanger moments at the end of each chapter…I was addicted from the very beginning!
Beth has been planning an escape from her abusive husband for a long time. We go on the journey with her as she escapes the danger and runs away, fighting for survival, trying to create a new identity while at the same time hoping to leave bogus clues to lead the man she fears far away from her.
Sabine is missing when her husband Jeffrey arrives home from work. He can’t imagine where she might be; her personal belongings are still intact and he is distraught over her disappearance.
Marriage may not be easy and Marcus the detective takes a good hard look at Jeffrey and Sabine’s history as he is investigating the case of her disappearance. Told from three points of view, Author Kimberly Belle creates unbearable tension as she reveals clues every step of the way to help us piece together what really happened; Is Beth really Sabine? Did Jeffrey kill his wife? What secrets are they hiding?
Nothing like a fast paced mystery to listen to as you walk at the beach! Loved listening to Dear Wife and recommend it if you are looking for a fun escape that keeps you guessing!
