Review: Misery Loves Company by Rene Gutteridge

Misery Loves Company by Rene Gutteridge
Tyndale House / 2013
Find on: Amazon, Goodreads

About the book:

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 rating:
My thoughts:

Misery Loves Company was a very good read. Different from what I expected going in, but still great. I loved how Jules, the main character, was a blogger and reviewed books monthly on her blog.

Patrick was an interesting character. It was a little hard to understand him and his reasoning for doing some of the things he did completely, but I guess that's what made him such an intriguing character.

There was a sliver of romance in Misery Loves Company, not much - which I really liked for a change. 

While I wasn't surprised by a lot of things in Misery Loves Company, there was one thing in the story I didn't expect at all!

Overall, Misery Loves Company was a interesting book that held my attention. I recommend it to fans of suspense/mystery novels.

*I received a complimentary eBook copy of this book from NetGalley for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*


  1. Glad to read your thoughts on this one. I am planning on recommending Misery Loves Company to my book club. We have liked all we have read by Gutteridge. Looking forward to a main character who is a book blogger! Thanks for your review.
