“misery loves company” by Rene Gutteridge, book review.
Juliet Belleno is still trying to deal with the death of her husband, Jason. He was a police officer and was killed on the job, shot to death near the boat harbor. She writes most days, mostly on her blog and Facebook, although her father keeps bugging or encouraging her to write a book. But she is content to just live a rather routine life, writing book reviews on her blog. One day she goes to the grocery store and never returns home.
Chris was Jason’s partner and best friend and promised Jason he would watch over Juliet if anything happened to him, and it did. But Jules is mad at Chris and yells him off the porch, tells him to never return. But Chris keeps watch, and when she does not return from he store, he starts looking. The search takes him to New York and to explore his inner motives.
Jules wakes up in a strange room, and finally realizes she has been kidnapped by a famous author, whom she has written reviews. Over the next couple of days she tries to reason with him and ask him to take her home. But he says that she must help him, but she does not understand what he has in mind.
Both Chris and Juliet wrestle with what Jason would want them to do and learn to lean on God.
This is a literary based mystery, with lots of police and crime action. It is easy to read and has good character development. The plot is well developed and keep my attention.
