What I’m Reading: The Marriage Lie

I finished a book last month and liked it so much that I went on and checked to see if the author had more books available and happily she did.  I put The Marriage Lie on my hold list and if came available.  The author is Kimberly Belle and so far, I like her.

The Marriage Lie

THis book started out with a woman losing her husband in a plane crash.  It was a little hard for me to listen to as when I read a book, I always imagine myself as the main character and this was happening to me.  This book, I had to take a little break from and remind myself that no.  I am not Iris.  I am the reader.  Once that happened, things got a little better.

Here’s what Amazon had to say:
Everyone has secrets.Iris and Will have been married for seven years, and their marriage is as close to perfect as it can be. But on the morning Will leaves for a business trip to Florida, Iris’ happy world comes to an abrupt halt. Another plane headed for Seattle has crashed into a field, killing everyone on board, and, according to the airline, Will was one of the passengers.

Grief stricken and confused, Iris is convinced it all must be a huge misunderstanding. Why did Will lie about where he was going? What is in Seattle? And what else had he lied about?

As Iris sets off on a desperate quest to find out what her husband was keeping from her, the answers she receives will shock her to her very core.”

Amazon readers gave the book 4.4 stars.  I guess I’ll have to say that I give it less.  4.1.  It was okay.  There was a lot of repetitive stuff going on.  The “I love my husband, I love my husband” the the “oh I could be with this other person once I’m over his death” was a little weird.  It really did surprise me with the declarations and more declarations of love but then, in the end, I didn’t see it in actions.  An okay book but one of those you need to read right up to the very last work before the whole story is complete…and then you might wonder like I did and find yourself saying, REALLY??

You can find the book on Amazon HERE.

    Ha ha, I started this one but had to DNF it because I, too, found the main character so annoying. And it was repetitive. I just didn’t care enough to finish it.
