My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Having recently read Kimberly Belle’s Three Days Missing, when I saw The Marriage Lie at the library I jumped at the chance to borrow it.
Iris has the perfect life. She is happily married to her husband, Will. She has a job she loves. Everything seems picture perfect. That is until a plane travelling to Seattle plummets to the ground one morning killing hundreds of innocent passengers and Will is one of the passengers on the flight manifest. But how can that be when he told Iris he was on a flight to Orlando for a work conference? Follow Iris as she attempt to find out the truth about her husband.
Overall, I really liked the concept of this book. I was intrigued up front and liked the concept. I absolutely despised the main character; but, not because she was poorly written. In fact, quite the opposite. She was written extremely well. But I found her to be spineless and lacking self esteem. She constantly cried and whined and boo hoo’ed about her hubby and his issues. I just wanted to tell the woman to get a grip.
I think the hardest part of this book for me was the ending. I thought it was unnecessarily complicated for the sake of shock value and I didn’t find it all that believable. But that being said, if you can get over the fact that it isn’t entirely translatable to real life, it was a quick and easy listen. Would recommend for my psychological thriller friends out there.
