Dear Wife by Kimberly Belle - Book Review

Dear Wife by Kimberly Belle has three narrators: Beth, Jeffery, and Marcus. Beth is on the run from a violent husband. Jeffery's wife is missing, and he is the prime suspect. Marcus is the lead detective searching for Jeffery's wife.

The first half of this novel is strong. I was completely engaged, and the three narrators kept me turning the pages. Lots of little twists kept me trying to figure out Beth's true place in everything. Unfortunately, I predicted the main twist about halfway through the novel, so the ending left me feeling slightly underwhelmed. That being said, I would absolutely still try another book from this author. It has been awhile since I've read a domestic thriller, and I'm already wondering about which crime novel I'll pick up next.

Dear Wife is a quick, distracting summer read to throw in your beach bag or if you're heading on vacation. It's available tomorrow from your favourite bookseller.
