Misery Loves Company ~ Review

Misery Loves Company
By Rene Gutteridge

Let this book be a warning for all blogging book reviewers - the author may be following you!

When Juliet "Jules" Belleno reviews her favorite author's latest book she gives it a less than glowing review.  She tells the author she wants him to terrify her with his writing and not tell her it is a terrifying situation.

All too soon Patrick Reagan is terrifying Jules and not through his writing.  For some reason he has kidnapped her and taken her away to his remote mountain cabin.  But will anyone even notice that she is missing?  In the two years since her husband's death Jules for the most part withdrew from the world.  Living in the safety of her home and the life she created for herself through her blog and Facebook, only her father might know that she was missing.

Patrick insists that there is something that Jules needs to know, but only when she is ready.  But when will Jules be ready to learn what this obviously disturbed man wants her to know?

When Jules's father reports her missing the Wissberry police force can't take action because she hasn't been gone long enough.  But Sergeant Chris Downey takes the report seriously after all he promised his former partner that he'd take care of his wife if anything ever happened.  But when Chris's unofficial investigation turns up more than he ever expected he all too soon realizes that more than Jules's life is at stake.

Misery Loves Company is an exciting page turner that will do just what Jules Belleno wanted - you will be terrified.  This is a story of growth both on a personal level and a spiritual level as several of the main characters come to realize their need for God.

Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through their blogger network in exchange for my honest review of it.

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.
