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.
I'm thinking that the reference to Stephen King's Misery book is intentional, right?
Anyway, this was a very interesting spin on that novel. I was totally intrigued by the storyline and found the plot twists and turns very captivating. There were parts that were a bit odd to me, like why Jules didn't feel more afraid or try harder to escape, but I came to accept them as the story developed. I ended up really liking this. I'm a big fan of Gutteridge's books and was happy to get another suspense from her.
