DON'T GIVE AWAY THE ENDING ... DON'T GIVE AWAY THE BEGINNING.

I picked this book up in the resort library because I had forgotten to pack a quality book. Yes, I finished it, but that was because I didn't have a lot more options. A quick, easy read, it left nothing to talk about. If you like sex scenes, there are some. But it was lacking in mystery, suspense...well, really anything.

The upside: This book will make me remember to pack a book next time!

This stands out as one of the worst books I have ever read. Just a taste of the cheesiness within:

"Connor vs. Jeffrey. They were both so much fun. They made her laugh, made her feel special. And there was certainly no denying that they were wonderful in bed -- or wherever else they chose to have sex. They were tall, in wonderful shape, handsome as film stars. No, actually, they were more handsome than the film stars she knew. The fact was, Nora loved being with Connor and Jeffrey equally. Which

Even though the story is still quite entertaining, the characters are very cheesy and credulous. How can Nora Sinclair pull it off with her marriage with one man and continue her affair of the other man, or how can she so easily transfer the money of her fiancé’s account to hers’ in Cayman Island. In the real world, transferring that sum of money of 1.9 billion to a different account registration can never be done online by a few clicks without attaining more authentication by phone or paper doc ...more

Ooops. Deleted the review.

Audiobook - Narrated by Campbell Scott and Hope Davis - Good narration, although I don't particularly enjoy female narrators.

This book is totally unbelievable and cheesy...LOTS cheesy. But I enjoyed it anyway, for the second time.

Like any James Patterson book, it was fast-paced and read quickly. However, like many of his books, Honeymoon was filled with half-baked plot twists, plot developments that were unnecessarily made into twists, and just odd narrative decisions throughout.

If the book had been straightforward, then I might would've enjoyed it better. Instead, Patterson treats every single event in the book as a soap opera style twist before the commercial. I was only waiting for the musical stings at the end of ea

Not a great book!! You can expect everything before hand. This is the first books of Patterson, I have read. When it comes to thriller, Sidney sheldon is the first man who comes in my mind. At many times, while reading the book, I felt that the author tried to use the formula of sheldon but failed at the result. Some parts of the story were stopped without a proper conclusion. Some were given hype but ended very boring. The writer failed to create an interest for the readers to proceede further. ...more

Another James Patterson book that's quite enthralling and can't put down as easily.

Nora Sinclair a successful interior decorator, spends her time between New York and Boston. But why? Because she is engaged to one of her clients in New York and married to one of her previous clients, a book author, in Boston. She has plenty of money that she trasfers to a Cayman Islan account, and a mother in a psychiatric ward, that no one knows about. As her current fiance dies unexpectedly while Nora is serv

James Patterson emang handal bikin plot yang memikat.

jadi teringat beberapa minggu yang lalu nonton serial TV Castle. tokoh utamanya adalah Rick Castle yang berprofesi sebagai penulis thriller. sewaktu terjadi kasus pembunuhan yang meniru pembunuhan dalam buku2nya, Castle membantu kepolisian buat memecahkan kasus ini. saat pembunuh tertangkap dengan mudah Castle jadi bingung dan ga puas. ada yang hilang dan tidak sesuai dengan kasus tersebut.

In Honeymoon written by James Patterson Nora Sinclair leads multiple lives and isn't used to not getting what she wants. But a trail of deaths seem to follow her the FBI get suspicious. As Nora continues her life of lies and deceit, someone is doing the same to her, will she notice or will she fall for the trap she was but in. Honeymoon was an overall excellent book about love, deceit, and how far someone will go to get what they want. During the entirety of the book new secrets are revealed and ...more

I tore through this book. I could not put it down!

There are essentially two plots to this story: Nora Sinclair is an interior designer who was widowed when her cardiologist husband died of an apparent heart attack. In reality, Nora killed him for his money and she's not done yet, a literal "black widow." John O'Hara is the FBI agent assigned to investigate when Nora's fiance also dies in the same manner as her late husband. They become engaged in a riveting game of cat and mouse as he tries to

The story revolves around Nora Sinclair and her life. She is madly in love with Connor, a business tycoon who proposes to the lady with a lovely diamond ring. Nora is a busy interior decorator and she shuffles across the county in order to fulfill her commitments. But there’s a twist in the story. She is already married to a well known author Jeffery Walker who resides in Boston and her secret escapades are well covered by a series of lies. When Connor is suddenly found dead because of a heart a ...more

This was definitely something different for me -- I don't generally read the thriller/crime/suspense genre. But, a friend lent me this one and swore I'd like it, so I decided that it was at least worth a shot, right?

I do like that the story is told in a bazillion shorter chapters, which helps keep my attention a little better in this type of story. It was easy to pick this up in short spurts throughout the week without getting lost.

Basically, this is the tale of a black widow who finds rich men,

Nora Sinclair is what they call a black widow. She has the ability to attract the attention of wealthy men and get them to fall in love with her. Unfortunately, just as they propose to or marry her, she gives them one of her "special" omelettes. Let's just say, her dinners are to die for.

Unfortunately, she catches the attention of the FBI as she repeatedly transfers large amounts of funds to offshore accounts, which are supposed to allow her to hide evidence of them. Instead, the anti-terrorism

Originally posted on My Book Musings.

I just finished reading James Patterson’s collaboration with Howard Roughan, Honeymoon. It is called the “2005 International Thriller of the Year” but sadly, thrilled I am not. I am deliberating whether it’s because of my high expectations from James Patterson or the book just really is dull. Frankly, I have no idea how it came to be a thriller.

The book revolves around the stunning, top-notch interior decorator Nora Sinclair. She’s such a knock-out, a lot of

The review across the top of the front cover reads "WHAT A HONEY OF A STORY IT IS!...HONEYMOON IS SEXY AND SCARY."

It really was neither of those things.

In all actuality, it was a predictable "black widow" story with a few PG-13 references to sex or having it. I saw the end coming 200 pages before it happened, and the few twists thrown in were kind of minute details that wouldn't have really been missed had they been left out.

I think the problem with me reading these sorts of novels (Patterson,

How does it feel to be desired by every man and envied by every woman? Wonderful. This is the life Nora Sinclair has dreamed about, the life she's worked hard for, the life she will never give up. Meet Nora Sinclair.

When FBI agent John O'Hara first sees her, she seems perfect. She has the looks. The career. The clothes. The wit. The sophistication. The tantalizing sex appeal. The whole extraordinary package - and men fall in line to court her. She doesn't just attract men, she enthralls them. If

I am a great fan of James Patterson. Having said that, I can say that this "International Thriller of the Year" did not thrill me. It has Patterson's short chapters and nonstop action, but its resemblance to his earlier books stops there. It has a painfully-predictable plot, an unbelievable protagonist, and an ending that deteriorates into political babble.

Nora Sinclair is a serial killer and the most interesting thing in the book. John O'Hara is an FBI agent in pursuit of Nora, but he has no r

I listened to this book on CD. Sometimes the narrator's voice makes a book very enjoyable, even if the story was just eh, but these two narrators did nothing for the story, especially the male "lead". He is a good actor, but strangely, was very dry and monotone while portraying all the male voices in this story. It was quite confusing. Also, I have had enough James Patterson for a while. Although the story was different than many crime novels, in that the reader knows who the killer is from almo ...more

HONEYMOON (Pub. 2005), coauthord by James Patterson and Howard Roughan, is a great read for many reasons.

The villainess, Nora, turns out to be a black widow of a woman, and although James/Howard let us know that she's the killer early on in the book, they spin this tale out in a way that kept me constantly turning the pages (389 in paperback) right to the very end.

I really enjoyed the way the authors developed Nora's character and the male lead, John O'Hara, who is the FBI agent that is sent in

389 pages, 117 chapters! That makes it a little over 3 pages per chapter! This is my first Patterson book, and I'm disappointed, and the number of pages to a chapter has the least to do with it. I would have rated this a 1.5 if there was such a rating, as I am bordering to not liking it and thinking that it was ok in some points. Story was good, and it would have been a very good read if not for the way it was related. It was written in a fashion that is more like a script, even though it altern ...more

OMG!!!! What an amazing book! And I never say OMG lol. I loved it! It was suspenseful, kept you on your toes, and left you wanting more. I couldn't get enough of Nora/Olivia the crazy, phychotic, money-craving "black widow", and John O'Hara/Craig Reynolds (I think) the FBI agent who accidently gets more involved with Nora than he really needs to. And of course, we all love Susan, the snappy ex who speaks her mind. She's awesome. This book follows Nora through a couple (wealthy) husbands that mys ...more

Gorgeous, sexy woman marries rich men, transfers their assets to a hidden Cayman Island bank account, then kills them. Undercover FBI agent poses as a sympathetic insurance agent to catch her and starts falling under her spell.

I must say that I'm somewhat embarrassed to be adding this book as something I've read. I see people reading these type of books as so-called summer reading all the time. I decided to give it a try. While it kept my interest, the developments that occured were all too con

Finally a Patterson book that made me remember why I'm such a fan! The last ones I read were really bad... maybe because now he writes 3/4 books a year and with partners??
Anyway, this was a fine thriller, full of big and little twists and surprises. The book is difficult to put down and we just read it in a flash!

After reading Second Honeymoon, I realized that I had never read Honeymoon; so to the library site I went, and now I have read it.

FBI agent John O’Hara is in the middle of two important cases, one financial and one a serial killer; but, how exactly could that be? Well, the book begins with a shoot out in the middle of NYC. The reader gets a general idea of what is going on, but not exactly….and who is the Tourist?

We don’t get the chance to find out because before you know it, the reader is follo

James Patterson'dan okuduğum en iyi 3.kitaptı. Sonu başından belli olmasına rağmen,merakla çevirdim sayfaları. Nora karakterine ba-yıl-dım. James'in kitaplarında kusursuz mutlu son diye bir şey yok, hep bir burukluk hissediyorum. Kötülere öyle bağlanıyorum ki, onların kazanmasını istiyorum :D Ama olmuyor işte adalet hep yerini buluyor, bunda da öyle oldu.Kitabın sonu beni gene sinir etti, ( Hangi Patterson kitabında sinir olmadım ki zaten) kesinlikle okunması gereken bir polisiye.
