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.
My Thoughts: A missing wife, a runaway wife, and a predator. Who is Beth running from, and what happened to Sabine?
Immediately I was caught up in the stories of the narrators, from Beth, to Sabine, and even to Marcus. Parts of the story caught me off guard, and then everything made perfect sense.
I loved how the narrators told us how and why their lives were unfolding in this way, and I rooted for some of them…and not others.
Dear Wife was a riveting tale that captured me until the end. 5 stars.
