Honeymoon Heist is the story about a newlywed couple who mistakenly take the wrong bag at the airport on their honeymoon. They are chased by some bad guys, who are trying to get that blue case back.

There were a couple of things that made this book really enjoyable for me. First of all, the author is British, therefore, so are the main characters. It was fun to read something that was different--probably normal for someone who lives there. Things are called different words--crisps/chips, for exam

Anna Buttimore has a fun, fresh, witty voice. Honeymoon Heist includes a delightful unfolding and exploration of the characters of Claire and Rodney Hewlett. If you've read one too many books with a gorgeous, perfect hero and a gorgeous, perfect heroine, you'll love Buttimore's refreshingly original characters--Rodney is nerdy and not particularly handsome and Claire is sometimes shallow. I love the freshness and originality of the characters and of the setting--Buttimore excels at description; ...more

This wasn't my favorite read and I probably couldn't pinpoint exactly why just yet. I think it just went on a bit long for me. I don't know. It had all the elements that I'm drawn to when reading fluffy LDS fiction, but somehow it just didn't come out right. It was okay.

I am glad that my honeymoon wasn't like this one. It all started with a couple picking up the wrong luggage at the airport. This was a very good book.
Kami Sexton
Truly terrible book. I don't wonder why people think Latter Day Saints are weird, this book portrays people of the LDS faith as rushing into marraige then never talking to each other unless it is to be unpleasant. While some do rush into marraige, the vast majority do not, their relationships are well rounded and they definitely would have discussed what they were going to do on their honeymoon! It was just a frustrating book all the way around. I kept waiting for it to get better, but I found m ...more

I enjoyed the fast pace of this story and the realistic relationship between the two newly weds had me giggling out loud. The tension and suspense are beautifully built and I would say this is a perfect book for the beach.

Interesting twists.

Cute story with interesting perspectives from the husband and wife and some interesting plot turns

Kristyn
This was pretty bad. She was recently married at the beginning of the book, really not into her husband, pointed out all of his bad qualities, and all of her ex-husbands good ones. I though, okay maybe she'll really fall in love with him by the end, but no. It was just bad and really depressing. Skimmed through most of it to find redeeming qualities that would make me finish it. Didn't, so I just read the bad ending and put it away.

I had high hopes for this book. I thought it was going to be a fast paced mystery. Not at all. It took me so long to read and by the end I was mostly skimming just so I could finish it. I felt like the plot went nowhere and I didn't really like the main characters all that well. They were a bit...whiny.
Annissa
I was very disappointed in this book as I thought it had great potential at the beginning. I felt like it was very distracting and hard to keep interested in the story line when the author continued to switch back and forth from the past back story and the present. Overall I was disappointed.
Susan
The beginning didn't impress me too much, but the story just got better and better. And, what a horrible nightmare to run scarred during your honeymoon--not knowing who to trust. My favorite part was meeting the missionaries!
Lisa
I gave up on this book after 9 chapters. I kept hoping that the woman would stop her whining! When I realized that I was rooting for the bad guy to catch her, I decided it was time to quit.
Carol
The characters were rather shallow minded about certain things but the story was fun.
Lisa
I stopped reading halfway through because I just couldn't get through it...ugh.
Marie
Cute mystery. Not great, but fun.
