Book Review: Dear Wife by Kimberly Belle

Dear Wife by Kimberly Belle


Do you remember for a while every thriller was "The next Gone Girl"? That's what I thought when I read this book. For a good portion of the book, there was definitely a resemblance. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, but where Gone Girl (while far from perfect, imo) was fast paced from start to finish, I felt Dear Wife started off with a bang, but really slowed in the middle to the point that I almost lost interest. However, towards the last quarter, it really picked up again and delivered a twist I hadn't expected, so I'm glad I didn't give up on it. I also liked the multiple POVs, which I felt the author pulled off really well. I don't want to give away spoilers, but I was satisfied with the ending, even if it was a little tidy. I'd be interested in reading more by the author.
