The Marriage Lie by Kimberly Belle

Even the perfect marriage has its dark side…

Iris and Will's marriage is as close to perfect as it can be: a large house in a nice Atlanta neighborhood, rewarding careers and the excitement of trying for their first baby. But on the morning Will leaves for a business trip to Orlando, Iris's 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 on this plane.

Grief-stricken and confused, Iris is convinced it all must be a huge misunderstanding. But as time passes and there is still no sign of Will, she reluctantly accepts that he is gone. Still, Iris needs answers. Why did Will lie about where he was going? What is in Seattle? And what else has 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.

My Thoughts
I can't believe that I haven't read this book sooner. Amazing!  I loved the twists and turns.  Just when I thought I had it figured out, it would change and it was going back and forth multiple times.  I loved the depth of the characters and the back stories perfectly painted a picture of their lives - past, present and future. 
How do you go from thinking that you know someone to having your whole world turned upside down and learn that you married a completely different person! So many things come to light - arson, fighting, lies, embezzlement and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Drink Selection
You'll need a stiff one for this selection - whiskey it is!
