I received this book for free to review from Tyndale Publishers. My opinions are purely my own.
Misery Loves Company is really my favorite new read of the summer. I am confident that anyone could pick this book up and need to keep it glued to their hands until it's finished out of suspense and intrigue.
The book presents a reclusive, widowed blogger that negatively reviews a book by her favorite author. She then wakes up kidnapped by him. I'm not going to give anything away, but it was a very gripping start. We, as readers, are wondering through much of the book what the characters intentions truly are, so if you enjoy complex characters and a storyline that really draws you in- MLC is the book for you. I was on the edge of my seat/booklamp the entire time.
It is very well-written and I enjoyed the accurate portrayal of an unhinged mind of a brilliant writer in the character of her kidnapper. The characters are all very well developed and I cared about them as I read each line. I really planned to give this book 5/5 stars... until I read the last page.
That last page seemed to throw in a romance where it really didn't need one. It also took away from the thrilling ride of the book by it's domesticity. I would have liked to end it just one page sooner. So, I'd give it 4.5/5 stars as is.
My tiny critique aside, this is one of my favorite new reads and I highly recommend you pick up a copy.
