Greetings From The Flipside by Rene Gutteridge

Tonight's review is on Greetings from the Flipside

I haven't yet finished this book, my copy arrived so close to the tour date that I am horribly behind. What I have read so far, is off to a dramatic start. 

Hope has a man she is about to marry. There is someone else who loves her, but she doesn't realize it. He has been in love with her passion, and her since a very young age. On the day she is about to marry a man named Sam, several massive incidences occur. First of all, Sam ditches her and sends her message just before she is ready to walk down the isle. How painful! As she is fleeing the church, she is the victim of a hit-and-run! The next thing we know she is in a coma and her whole life is about to change in ways she just could never have fathomed.  

I know that, besides, the interesting card sayings, there is going to be a lot more to this book than I have been able to read thus far. I'm glad my copy got her, and I have a good feeling about the ending!

Greetings from the Flipside
B&H Books (October 15, 2013)
Rene Gutteridge


Rene is the author of seventeen novels. She also has extensive experience writing comedy sketches, and worked for five years as the director of drama for a church. She has a degree specializing in Screenwriting, for which she earned the Excellence in Mass Communication Award, and graduated magna cum laude.

She is married to Sean, a musician and worship leader, and has two children. They reside in Oklahoma, where Rene writes full time and enjoys instructing in college classrooms and writers conferences.


Hope Landon has been rewriting other people's greeting cards since she was six years old -- there's always a funnier caption. She's all set to chase those creative dreams with her musician fiance in New York City until he leaves Hope at the altar, deciding he must not really love this girl if he can't write a song for her. That may give her something to write about . . .

Hope disappears alone on what was supposed to be the couple's month long honeymoon. Upon returning she learns of her funeral -- everyone in her life concluded Hope must have killed herself after being jilted. Needing a fresh start more than ever, she heads for the Big Apple only to discover it's not that easy to rent a place when you've been declared dead.

Taking shelter at the YWCA, Hope soon lands a job at a Christian inspirational greeting card company as an assistant to Jake, a guy who shut down his organization's humor department. She has lost her faith in love; he needs to find something or someone that will make him laugh.

Is there anything in the cards for these two? Find out in the truly original Greetings from the Flipside by authors Rene Gutteridge (Boo) and Cheryl McKay (screenplay for The Ultimate Gift).
