Misery Loves Company by Rene Gutteridge (Review)

  • Paperback: 368 pages

  • Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers (July 22, 2013)

  • ISBN-13: 978-1414349336

  • Don’t tell me it’s terrifying. Terrify me.

    Filled with grief, Jules Belleno rarely leaves the house since her husband’s death while on duty as a police officer. Other than the reviews Jules writes on her blog, she has little contact with the outside world.

    But one day when she ventures out to the local grocery store, Jules bumps into a fellow customer . . . and recognizes him as her favorite author, Patrick Reagan. Jules gushes and thoroughly embarrasses herself before Regan graciously talks with her.

    And that’s the last thing she remembers until she wakes up in a strange room with a splitting headache. She’s been kidnapped. And what she discovers will change everything she believed about her husband’s death . . . her career . . . and her faith.

    My Review:

    I read this book in one afternoon. It was a great Christian suspense/mystery book. The characters and plot are interesting and unique. It is well written and held my attention from the beginning. Jules is a widow whose husband was a cop and died on a call. She lives mostly on the Internet through her blog. One day she goes to the grocery store and sees her favorite author. She wakes up at his remote mountain house. What follows next is not what you expect. There are several twists and turns. It is not scary though. Her favorite author discovered information about her husband's death she never suspected. Also present is her husband's old partner in the force Chris who feels responsible for her. He won't give up with trying to figure out what happened to her once her father who is a drunk convinced him she was missing. The conclusion is satisfying and breath taking. Recommended.

    Rene Gutteridge is the author of nineteen novels including Listen, Possession, the Storm series, the Boo series, the Occupational Hazards series, and the novelization of the movie The Ultimate Gift. Rene and her husband have two children and live in Oklahoma.
