An engrossing and spellbinding drama of an abused woman taking back control of her life.
Beth has been planning for this day for over a year. She has saved cash, bought burner phones and even a new identity. It’s her new beginning. She has to be careful—one small slip and her violent husband will find her. But now is the time, and she is on the road.
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.
DEAR WIFE kept me on the edge of my seat the entire book. The story was engrossing. I read it quickly and enjoyed it immensely. My favorite part was a huge twist that I never saw coming.
KIMBERLY BELLE’s writing grabbed me when Beth merged onto the Muskogee Turnpike and watched in her rear view mirror as Pine Bluff, Arkansas faded away. Her writing was spell binding. She expertly delivered a portrait of a woman taking back control of her life from a violent and abusive husband. All the characters were colorful and stunningly well developed. The story is creatively told from three points of view.
Kimberly Belle is the international bestselling author of five suspense novels. Her third, The Marriage Lie, was a semifinalist in the 2017 Goodreads Choice Awards for Best Mystery & Thriller.
