Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling 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.

Freaking awesome!

So the big surprise didn’t surprise me, I guess that’s the writer in me. But it doesn’t matter if you know it or not, it’s still a freaking awesome book!!!! Gripping and intense from the beginning. Great all the way through. Perfection. I hope to one day write a book at least half this good.

Wow

This book is a combination of Sleeping with the Enemy and Rose Madder by Stephen King. Great book. The narrators were fabulous! The voice of Jeff made me laugh out loud more than once—-well written book!

Dear Wife<br />

This is my first book by this author. I will definitely get another one. Interesting and I never got bored or skipped further along. This is a credit worthy book.

An Enjoyable Listen That Kept Me Guessing

I have had a bit of a bad spell with books lately, so when I started Dear Wife I wasn't expecting much. I was surprised! This book was great, it kept me guessing. I thought I knew what was going on, but then when I thought about it more, I realized that the details weren't really adding up and that piqued my interest. The story was going, the characters relatable and interesting. I think the narrator did an excellent job. I recommend.

Great book

The story was fantastic, but I was disappointed at the performance. Her "Latina" accent sounded more Irish than Mexican. It pulled me out of the story a bit, which the narration should never do. Otherwise, great listen.

Wow

So glad I got this book. I’ve had trouble finding things that will hold my attention but this did it. Thank you to the author!! I enjoyed this so much. It kept me guessing right up until the twist was given to me. After it was revealed it still kept me going. You can’t go wrong with this.

Pretty good thriller

On the plus side, this was a fast-past and fairly entertaining read. Unfortunately, I found the storyline a little silly and a tad contrived. Overall rating: 3.5 stars rounded up.
