Misery Loves Company

DON'T tell 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...then recognizes him as her favorite author, Patrick Reagan.
And that's the last thing she remembers – until she wakes up in a strange room with a splitting headache. Jules realizes she's been kidnapped...but what she discovers about her abductor will change everything she believed about her husband's death, her career, and her faith.
An emotionally gripping suspenseful tale!
OK, so what got me interested in reading this book was the title. I just loved it! I then read the summary of the story and it sounded really good so I decided to try it. And I was right, it was very good!
This book grabbed my emotions in ways I can't even explain. The author takes readers on a whirlwind ride of emotional turbulence.
After the death of her husband nothing is the same for Jules, the once outgoing woman becomes a near recluse and when she is kidnapped the game changes once again.
All of the main characters have their own reasons for being on their emotional roller coasters. Each one harbors their own grief, guilt and fears, will the answers they find ease the burdens?
The author is very adept at her craft. Reading this book was a bit like watching a movie completely surrounded by screens. The reader is so immersed in the story and it is so vivid that when the real world interrupts it takes time to adjust. I was so caught up in the story that I didn't even seem to turn the page anymore, it simply flowed on without thought to time.
As a book reviewer with a blog, Misery Loves Company struck a chord since the main character, Jules, does the same. The story left me wondering what authors think when they read reviews of their books on my blog? How many authors actually read reviews on people's blogs and online retail sites?
This Book earned a 5 Bark rating.

I almost yelled “Wow, finally someone else!” when I read the section where Patrick says he doesn't read his finished work, when it's done it's done.
I am new to Rene Gutteridge's work but after reading this book I am going to remedy that ASAP. I absolutely love reading Christian Suspense and Misery Loves Company is what the genre is all about.
So find a copy of Misery Loves Company, sit down, make sure you have plenty of time, and read it!
