My Darling Husband, by Kimberly Belle

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
I just read the book "My Darling Husband", by Kimberly Belle.  I want to thank NetGalley for giving me a copy of the book in exchange for a review.
Let me just start by saying that I am a big fan of Kimberly Belle's work.  I LOVED her book "Dear Wife"  It was a page turner filled with suspense and intrigue and a wonderful mystery.  I was so excited to begin reading this book, and I was looking forward to  being wrapped up in one of her wonderful mysteries once again.  Sadly, I found myself putting this book down quite a bit.  It wasn't that it was uninteresting or didn't carry an intriguing mystery.  A woman and her two kids are held at gunpoint by a masked man who in turn demands that the husband, a seemingly rich restauranteur, round up an enormous amount of money in exchange for his family's freedom.  Who is the masked man?  What secrets is the husband hiding? Why is the masked man targeting this family?  All questions which are answered in the book.  Just not in the most exciting or thrilling way.
I did enjoy that the book was told through four different perspectives: The husband, the wife, the masked man, and a reporter.  That was interesting and kept me curious.  I also enjoyed the characters, especially the daughter.  I thought she was well written,.  I also liked the reasons why the masked man needed the money.
I liked the heroics of the main character, Jade, and how she was able to fight for her kids.
I guess I thought there would be a bit more of a kapow at the ending, with a more crazy reveal.  I kind of ended with a whimper instead of a bang, and I didn't feel like WOW when I was finished.
I suppose that is my major critique:  There was no WOW at the end or really at any point in the novel.  A steady stream of events that kept me interested enough to continue reading, but not enough to say WOW, You HAVE to read this book.
