Nobody in Skary seems to know for sure…

It appears that everyone in Skary, Indiana, is having an identity crisis of epic proportions–including the town itself.

What follows is not a review as much as a cautionary tale: It starts with a meander through the public library where a book with a cleverish name and a rad owl drawing peaks my interest. A perusal of the back cover reveals a seemingly coherent and interesting synopsis coupled with the author's photograph, who turns out to be really attractive! I'm in. Upon further investigation it turns out that Gutteridge is a Bible-thumper. My nerves are rattled but beauty is blinding and I decide to 'give 'er ...more

Rene Gutteridge's Boo Who is the sequel to Boo, and in a similar fashion, this author provided lots of chuckles throughout the book. Following the lives of about eight different people, you will laugh through the planning of two weddings, a woman who is trying to be the next Martha Stewart, a town on the verge of bankruptcy and all the ways the residents come up with to save it, and some strange people wandering around town that are suspected to be clones?? A great holiday weekend read and very, ...more

This book was refreshing and pretty funny. There are a lot of characters to keep track of but all have their own unique personality that make the town of Skary what it is. Small town feel and very clean in the language. I don't remember any at all. I picked this book up by chance in the library and Rene Gutteridge has written a few more so I think I will try another.

Loved the first book. This one started out a little slow, but it really picked up by the end. I'm really interested in what's going to happen in the next one. It's a great read for those who are looking for something more spiritually based. I love reading something that is different and faith based.

If you like these with should try reading Mindy Starns Clark Trouble with Tulip

This second book in the Boo series is a fun and light-hearted read. Even though you don't have to read the first book, it does help with the background and quirky character development. The zany residents of Skary are a hoot.

needed another light one, nothing too exciting, lots of weird little twists and funky characters. It was nice to read something that wasn't preachy but nobody slept together the first date either.

This is my second time reading this book and I enjoyed it just as much the second time. This is a sequel to Boo, which introduces us to Skary and her citizens. The characters find themselves trusting the new doctor in town to help them change aspects of themselves. We find a town looking for it's identity, a depressed cat, a pastor who is trying unusual ideas to bring people to church and the woman who is being made into the next Martha Stewart. Read this book to find how things turn out for the ...more

I cannot express how much fun reading this book was.

I love the characters/citizens of Skary. Both Wolfe and Ainsley are starting new jobs and also planning the perfect wedding. But they're not alone in the wedding planning, Oliver and Melb are getting married as well. Melb needs to lose weight to fit into her perfect dream wedding dress, which she bought without trying it on, and she's also afraid that Oliver will have a fit if he knows she going over budget. And there's Sheriff who is worried

I didn't like this book as much as the first one, which I didn't like that much to begin with. I found the characters to be over the top ridiculous. I had a hard time believing that Ainsley who wanting to be married and have children would suddenly take to the possibility of fame. I also have problems with the way the pastor acts in this book...I trudge on to the third because I want to see where the story goes though.

Poor Boo, trying so hard to find a new path for his life when he still wants to write, and poor Ainsley, who thinks she can have the job of her dreams but realizes what she really wants is the man she loves. Loved the mystery as Martin worked to try and save Skary, and although the Jack Hass plot line felt weird at times, it brought everything together nicely. Loved that Miss Peeple was redeemed and that everyone got their HEA after all.

An otherwise cute, enjoyable, fun story ruined by two brief utterances that seem more in line with Meet the Parents than a Christian novel. Not only does one character blurt out, "What in the Hellmann's mayonnaise are you talking about?" but a Seinfeld-esque revelation reveals a name that sounds like a word widely considered to be a profanity. If you can forgive that, then, Boo Who is worth reading.

This book is so corny I couldn't stand to finish it. I even, for some reason, tried getting through it twice.
Characters are supposed to be quirky, but in my opinion, mostly pathetic. Can't believe this book is part of a series that carry the characters throughout.

It started out slow, but it ends up being pretty good if you can hang in there for the first one-hundred pages or so.

This "inspirational" fiction turned out to be trite and poorly written. The dialog was stilted, the characters unbelieveable, and the plot contrived.

Good sequel! Just as funny as the first book, but oh poor Ms. Missy Peeple. And I love the good Dr. Hass's name.

I loved Boo, so naturally, I loved Boo Who as well. Sort of continues on. I hated for the book to end.

Good book love Rene's take on this series, but somehow I missed the third one on my list now.

I enjoyed Boo (the first in the series), but had a hard time getting into this one. Finally decided to move on to something else.

Part of the Boo series from Rene Gutteridge and she finishes on a very strong note.
If you're a fan of Rene's do yourself a favor and don't miss this one!!!

Sequel to Boo, but main character not trusting God very much.

This was a book I randomly choose from the library. The author is Christian and so this was a good clean book. It was the second in a series, I believe. I should have choosen the first book.
