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.

I loved this suspenseful thriller. There were three different perspectives in this story: Jeffrey, Beth, and Marcus. Jeffrey’s wife, Sabine went missing. Beth has changed her name and run away from her abusive husband. Marcus is the detective on the case of Sabine’s disappearance. It was a very clever mystery. I figured out how some of the characters were connected halfway through, but I still loved reading through until the ending. I hadn’t figured out all of the pieces to the puzzle so I had more to discover. The only parts I didn’t really like were the scenes in the church. I didn’t think they added much to the story, but I can see that they developed the character of Beth more thoroughly. This is a fantastic, fast-paced thriller! Thank you HarperCollins Canada for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

If my husband doesn't report me missing, am I really gone? 4.5 stars rounded down I kind of loved this book, fellow readers. It's fast-paced, fun, twisty, clever, and most importantly, it's not one I was able to completely figure out. For that reason alone, I gave it an additional half star. The red herrings were excellent, but even more importantly, the story's set-up made it truly hard to figure things out. I was impressed. Having enjoyed Kimberly Belle's 2016 novel, The Marriage Lie, I had high hopes for Dear didn't disappoint. The characters are strong and well-developed, the plot is intensely complex, and the story is told from three separate points of view...Beth, Jeffrey, and Marcus...this book would make a marvelous beach read. I can't end this review without pointing out the Gone Girl vibes I got from the story...the two books are not the same, don't get me wrong. But there is an essence of that story shining brightly through Dear Wife. If Gone Girl was your jam, do yourself a favor and pick this one up! In fact, do it anyway. You won't be disappointed. Trigger warning: Domestic Violence Great appreciation is extended to NetGalley and Park Row Publishing for my ARC.

“Dear Wife” is a gripping, captivating, take-your-breath-away novel! Kimberly Belle has become the household name for Domestic Suspense, so by the time, “Dear Wife” was released, I was thrilled with excitement when UPS delivered it! Then due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to purchase the audiobook as well, and it was just stunning! They did an amazing job narrating. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this story....It made everything come to life! The secrets, the not-knowing, the twists and turns...I repeat, the actual “not-knowing” who one of the main characters truly was, became such an intense hunt that I could not stop listening. The urge to get to the end was such a powerful force that when I did finally get there...WOW!!! So...Proceed with caution, because Belle gives us a powerful shock at the end that I was not expecting. Well done Kimberly Belle!! Well done!!

WOW! OMG!! WOW!!! These were the first words out of my mouth when I read the last page of Kimberly Belle's book Dear Wife. The whole book was unputdownable but, the last 50 pages grab you by the throat and won't let you up. I read her book The Marriage Lie and thought it was good. Dear Wife far surpassed it. I can't put into words how much I enjoyed this book. I won this book from Kimberly Belle and told her I would be happy to provide a review. Thanks again, Kimberly. I loved this book so much, it makes me want to change the star rating for all the other books I've read this year. Do yourself a favor and get a copy of DEAR WIFE. You won't regret it!

Another great read by Kimberly Belle! She keeps you guessing and wondering who is who and what is going on. This is such a fast read! It is a perfect summer read, but wonderful anytime!

I could describe this book as dazzling and leave it right there. It is. Dazzling. This is my kind of book. Good story line, goes along swimmingly, you're connected to the characters, you're figuring it all out as you go. You sense a slight disturbance in the in the clouds of your certainty as to what is going on....still, you're on the right path, after all, so you skip little things like sleep and continue to read, because you've figured it out, after all... and BAM! Great book. Read it. Start in the morning. You will want to keep going.

I haved lovec every book this author has written. This one did not disappoint. I read it in one day and hated to put it down. So very suspenseful and hard to figure out. The ending was unexpected and satisfying.

Wow, what a twisted and suspenseful read. Beth is a battered wife who has been planning her escape from her husband and marriage of ten years. She knows she needs to get out before he kills her. Her husband, however, is clever and merciless. A clever game of cat and mouse but who will win? An intense read you won't be able to put down.
