Beth Murphy is on the run…
For nearly a year, Beth has been planning for her escape. She's thought through everything -- a new look, new name and new city -- because one small slip and her 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. But are things really as clear cut as they seem? 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.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
This domestic thriller messes with our understanding of how well we can truly know someone else. Dear Wife’s switchbacking plot revolves around two women: one who’s disappeared and one who’s reinvented herself and skipped town to flee an abusive marriage. But which woman is which? We weren’t sure until the book’s last sneaky twist. Kimberly Belle, author of the bestseller The Marriage Lie, keeps us guessing, alternating the perspective between a character named Beth; Jeffrey, the husband of a missing woman; and Marcus, an Arkansas detective trying to figure out what on earth is going on. Belle has a flair for quick and sassy first-person narration—her writing style is as sharp as her characters.

Didn’t See That Coming
I was hooked from the beginning of the book. However, I noticed that I was becoming bored later on in the book. Once you push through that little bit, it’s good & a suspenseful read. There’s a twist that I didn’t see coming & usually you can write these yourself if you wanted. Didn’t see it coming. I recommend
I read it straight through in a few hours! I literally couldn’t stop and a great twist. A+++++++
Couldn’t put it down! What a surprise. HAd to go back and read again. Definitely recommend it to my friends.
