The Marriage Lie by Kimberly Belle

Setting: Georgia
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: MIRA
Release Date: December 27, 2016



Seven years of marriage have been nothing more than wedded bliss for Iris and Will. With a stunning home, great jobs, and the decision to start a family, Iris cannot imagine anything being better. Her world is shattered when she learns Will lied. He was heading to Orlando, Florida, for a convention, but she gets the call that he was actually on a flight headed for Seattle. That plane crashed and there are no survivors.

In the middle of her grief, Iris wants answers to the myriad of questions that are raised. The deeper she digs, the more Iris realizes that she was married to a stranger and nothing will prepare her what happens next.

Clear a few hours from your schedule. I spent a number of chapters with tears pouring down my face. Just as I started to wonder if the emotional pull of this novel would ease up and let me dry my eyes, the suspense aspect kicks in and kept me hooked. The Marriage Lie is fast paced, completely absorbing, and full of twists.

As you keep reading The Marriage Lie, you feel for Iris and all the lies she's been told. The novel definitely loses a bit of the romantic edge and turns into a complete edge-of-your-seat suspense novel. I loved that shift and couldn't stop reading. In the end, it led to me heading to bed at 6 p.m. so that I could read the rest of the story without anyone interrupting me. It's that good.
