Welcome to the December #BuddyRead episode. What's a Buddy Read? Fellow book nerd co-host Classy (friend, book lover, audiobook listener, and Shelf Addiction reviewer) and I select a stand alone title that we'll either read, listen to, or a combination of both. Afterwards we come together to chat about it on the podcast! This is a candid and spoiler-filled convo. We'll be talking about this book during a live chat at the end of the month in the Shelf Addiction Official Facebook group, so you'll want to join us there!
In this episode, we're discussing Dear Wife by Kimberly Belle. Both Classy and I listened to the audiobook version. Be sure to listen to the end because we share why we picked who we did for the fantasy casting!

Synopsis: 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.

Audiobook Review of This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare, by Gabourey Sidibe | The Non-Fiction Shelf
“Don’t let anyone else take away your joy. If they don’t want to be with you or around you, let them go. Pick up your shit and keep going. You came into the world by yourself, and the next person’s lungs don’t help you breathe.” ― Gabourey Sidibe, This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare
