Misery Loves Cabernet by Kim Gruenenfelder

Misery Loves Cabernet, by Kim Gruenenfelder, is a very funny book. Having a funny book to read was a really nice thing for me as life in general wasn't very funny over the last few days. That being said, I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would.

I received the book as an advanced readers copy through Library Thing. I knew nothing about the author and was very pleasantly surprised. My big concern was that the book is a sequel and I was afraid I would miss out on some important back story. The good news is that the book can stand alone, and does so rather well.

Charlie has a job working as a personal assistant for one of the biggest movie stars in the world, Drew Stanton. Drew is probably my favorite character in the book. He is spoiled, charming, and I find his affection for Charlie to be very sweet. Of course he's not the romantic interest for her but in my opinion he could be. . . Maybe in the next book? Charlie is caught up in her work, her romantic entanglements, and the lives of her friends and families.

I enjoyed the characters a lot. They were unique, quirky, and fun. Anyone who is a fan of women's fiction, and enjoys a good fun read, should pick up this book.
