    This review was written for Misery Loves Company.
    Although some of the things that happened were a little unbelievable, I found Misery Loves Company to be a fascinating book. Rene Gutteridge has a nice style of writing, and can hold the reader's attention. She did a good job of showing that our first impressions of people are not always correct.

    This review was written for Misery Loves Company.
    The plot of this book was so implausible. A famous author kidnapping a widow who he had been blog stalking for the last 2 years? Really? Now, by the end of the book, I can understand what was going on and why he did that, but still, there seemed to be much better ways of going about this--ways that would have drawn less attention to himself and to Jules, the main character. But it's fiction and you can do anything you want with fiction so why am I fussing? I would like to read another of Rene's books and see what that is like. She definitely knows how to create great suspense.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was fast paced and very suspensful. Kind of a reversal of Stephen King's "Misery". Though not horror. More of a thriller. Very good read.

    This review was written for Misery Loves Company.
    Misery Loves Company was not a favorite read of mine. First of all, the whole premise of the book is so highly implausible to be almost laughable. The main character, Julia Belleno, writes and posts a book review on her blog with some criticisms of a book. Specifically, she states, "Don't tell me it's terrifying. Terrify me!" This had been a favorite author of hers who is just not delivering a great story, in her opinion, and her last line in her review says, "But I am confident one day soon, Patrick Reagan will capture me again." Knowing that I said this is implausible, do you see where we're going? She is somehow kidnapped from the local grocery store (in a manner never clearly explained) that same day and awakens to find scrawled above the bed she is lying on that very "terrify me" quote. Can you imagine being terrified of an author? They just don't make the most fearful antagonists, and therein lies the first problem. At no time, even though the author describes Julia's terror, am I in any fear for her safety. It's just too silly of a thought, and interesting that the very criticism in the fiction becomes a criticism of mine.

    My next problem with this book is the definition of "Christian fiction". The only Christian mentioned in the book is Julia's late husband. He was apparently so inspiring a Christian that in the first half of the book there are two prayers uttered for the help of Jason (the dead man) rather than God. There are two prayers mentioned (more of a fox hole type variety) in which a sudden unexpected rainstorm arrived to douse a car fire about to consume a person, and one that produced a silver sleigh just when it's needed. Oh yeah, that happens for me ALL the time. THAT'S why I'm a Christian_.God is so often like Santa Claus in my life. There is no clear conversion experienced by any character, no change in any one's life, no consistent mention of Christ.

    It was an interesting beach read, and certainly kept my mind occupied, but not in the way the author intended. However, I am somewhat concerned that by posting this review, I may also end up kidnapped and placed in a "terrifying" situation. If I'm gone tomorrow, someone please start looking for me right away. I may laugh myself to pieces.

    This review was written for Misery Loves Company.
    Misery Loves Company is slightly creepy and sometimes humorous. The book does give me a new perspective on writing book reviews and being more cautious. The concept of the book has got to be fiction, right? An author would not do that, right? The book kind of has the flavor of Stephen King's Misery. I did enjoy reading it and is definitely an interesting read. I found the plot to be unique and refreshing.

    Highly recommended. 5 stars
