Summary

From the best-selling author of The Marriage Lie comes a riveting new novel of suspense about a woman who 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 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.

Don't miss Kimberly Belle's newest novel, My Darling Husband!

GREAT THRILLER THAT KEPT ME UP ALL NIGHT

I love Kimberly Belle's writing and much enjoyed "The Marriage Lie" and also "The Last Breath" so I was fairly sure I would love this one too despite a few negative reviews. I usually prefer UK or Irish narration for audio books which is funny as I really enjoy US TV and Film with no such reservations - but there is something about Kimberley Belle's books as they swelter and steam in the deep south that means the accents adds to the atmosphere.
I thought all the narrators did a great job loved the accent of one of the guys who talked about pillaaas and windaaas as opposed to pillows and windows however it was very annoying the way that Vivienne Leheny made what was described as a southern drawl which could not conceal a Mexican accent as to me it sounded IRISH! Sometimes slightly Northern Irish but never Mexican and not a trace of a Southern Drawl either which was odd as being American I would have thought these accents would be far more familiar to her than a stage Irish accent ... but luckily the character with the dodgy accent did not play a huge part so it did not spoil my overall enjoyment of the book.
Those who enjoyed "Sleeping With The Enemy", "Gone Girl" , "Big Little Lies" and "A Simple Favor" will really enjoy this and although there is some violence it is not too dark or disturbing, not gory and although it is a serious subject the story focuses on the thriller aspect of the building suspense and of course there are some great twists and I did not guess one of the biggest ones until just before the reveal.
I read it in two chunks and took it with me to do work about the house which I only tend to do if it is a really gripping and intriguing read. I then was up all night finishing it and think I must have listened to it for 5 hours straight which I seldom do.
I think "The Marriage Lie" remains my favourite of her books but "Dear Wife" comes a close second and the descriptions of the locations really made me feel like I had spent a sizzling steamy night in the sultry South.
It had me hooked from the start and just kept cracking along as the suspense built and the twists and turns just kept going until the dramatic climax which was a very satisfying ending.
Highly recommended and looking forward to the next Kimberly Belle thriller.

Stop the ride I want to get off!!

This is going to be a tricky one to review without giving away any spoilers.

I would say, except for obviously reading this review, you should definitely think about going in blind with this one, otherwise it may spoil it for you.

Prepare for some twists and turns and 180 spins with this little cracker of a Thriller, you won’t know what’s gonna hit you!!

I was sucked into the storyline and couldn’t put the darn thing down, and the only little snippets of information that I’m going to give you my little lovelies is this……

An Abusive Husband
A Woman on the Run
Cat & Mouse


I know it’s a bit of a rubbish review, but you’re intrigued now right?

Narration was amazing, Vivienne Leheny, Chris Andrew Ciulla and Pete Simonelli did an incredible job at bringing this book to life, I was stunned many times throughout.

GRAB THIS ONE ASAP

You’re Welcome
Enjoy
