Misery Loves Company~Review

(Free copy of the book provided to me for review)

Let me start out by saying that the fact this book was about a woman who reviews books on her blog and get kidnapped because of it kind of freaked me out a little bit! =)

I was also wary going in because it sounded like it was going to be along the lines of The Shack, and while I liked that particular book (REVIEW HERE) Christian suspense has never been my favorite genre.....so I went in this book planning on having to force myself to read it.....

Ahem, but let me raise the right hand of wrongness and say that I could barely put it down! Christian fiction and suspense can be married into a gripping, yet not to gory book that doesn't feel contrived or forced! It wasn't preachy and it kept me guessing, which were a few of my beefs with previous Christian suspense books I'd read.

All of the jumping around was a little hard to follow and the very beginning creeped me out and confused me a bit*, but other then that I thoroughly enjoyed the story and would recommend it to anyone enjoys suspense/mystery stories!

Official Summary~
Filled with grief since her husband's death, Jules Bellano rarely leaves the house. Venturing out to the grocery store, she bumps into her favorite author. Embarrassing herself is the last thing she remembers before waking up in a strange room with a splitting headache. Can she discover why her husband really died and survive her own ordeal? 



*Spoilers............
The beginning was explained further on in the book and cleared up my nagging questions and clarified A LOT the why of what was going on!
