The latest in the bewitching series from the author of Dead if I Do

In wintry Wisconsin, occult bookseller-and witch-Garnet Lacey isn't immune to the cold. But even though her new vampire husband doesn't actually have a pulse, love will keep them warm-if the honeymoon doesn't drive them apart.

Thanks to a vengeful frost demon, instead of a gothic honeymoon in Transylvani...more

I really kind of hated this book. I only finished it because it was the last of the series and I was already so far in... but this was easily the worst of an already so-so series about Garnet Lacey. This last installment was a complete departure from the formula of the first four, taking the main characters completely away from their home base (and largely ignoring supporting characters that kept me interested up to now). There's a huge focus on the setting, with long, drawn out descriptions of...more

Their plane is unable to take off due to a frost demon looking for revenge and the couple find themselves stuck in Minneapolis. Determined to make the best of things Garnet wants to share the favorite haunts from her old stomping ground with Sebastian. However with 2 Goddesses fighting for control of her body she is suf...more

What was fun in the beginning, became a chore to read by the end. By beginning I mean beginning of the series. By the time I got to this book, I was pretty much done with the series, but couldn't stop until finished.
I loved this series, but it just lost my interest last book and this one did nothing to recapture it. It was full, and I mean FULL of Garnets inner relfections of herself and her life before Lilith and which Goddess she should keep. On and on and on and on.....it went till I was ser...more

For the very last Garnet book, I was disappointed. :(

Honestly, this is trivial, but who is that on the cover of the book? It's not Garnet that's for sure. It's like this is the wrong cover for the book?

I wanted more of a wrap up of everyone. What's going on with Daniel Parrish and the crazy wife? They say he's back and then never go back to that story? There was too many new characters (Larkin, Vampire Hunters, etc...) When if it was the last book, give us as much as you can about the character...more

I found it rather bizarre reading this novel that my own thoughts about the lead character, Garnet Lacey, were mirrored by the character herself. Chiefly something along the lines of "I am not a nice person and therefore when I asked for help from any Goddess who chose to listen that's why I ended up with the Queen of Hell deciding to come share my body." (And then I will act really ungratefully and consider ditching her for Athena.) Even more bizarrely many of the guys within the series fall in...more

This is it. The final Garnet Lacey book. While I feel great sadness, I am also quite pleased with the way Tate finished off the series. It's well worth the read and if you liked the previous books, you'll enjoy this one as well.

Let's talk for a moment about the cover, however. The covers of the previous books clearly show Garnet in what we learn is one particular scene in the book in question. This one? Not. At. All. First, the woman is not Garnet. No way, no how. She has long brown hair done in...more

I go back and forth with this series, there are things I love and things that really annoy. I feel like I was missing something in this book, I am sure there is a short story out there with a plot of a Frost Demon. That part of this plot has too much not said for it to be a first time addition. I feel like I need to track it down and fill in the wholes.

We get more of Garnet's backstory, and find exactly why it is she may have ended up with...more

This was more of a really long novella than a novel. The plot is barely there, meanders slowly around, sputters and dies, leaving behind no impact whatsoever. The main cast of characters are left behind and make only token appearances - even Sebastian's role in the book is pretty lacking, as he's absent for most of the main events.

This one also creates a problem just to agonise over it, create false drama, and come to the obvious conclusion, with Garnet supposedly trying to decide on which godde...more

The final book in the Garnet Lacy series finds Garnet and Sebastian on their honeymoon. The plan is to fly from Minneapolis/St Paul to Austria for their honeymoon, but Garnet sees the Frost Giant, Fonn, sitting on the wing of plane. No one else can see him and her reaction causes the two of them to be removed from the plane, separated and investigated by the FBI.

Garnet is interviewed by her FBI friend, Gabriel Dominguez (who we met in the first book, Tall, Dark and Dead) and Sebastian is intervi...more
Nicole
Disappointing ending to a series I liked a lot at the beginning. Most of what's good about the series (the supporting cast, the love triangle, the fun setting of the occult bookshop and attached coffee shop, etc) is missing since the whole book takes place away from Madison and we're just with the main character (Garnet) and her husband in Minnesota. Fortunately, we get a few chapters with a couple supporting characters at the end, but it's a shame this series ended where it did when I would hav...more

Tate Hallaway- Honeymoon of the Dead

Fans of Gerry Bartlet will LOVE "Honeymoon of the Dead." The characters are delightful and easy to picture. Tate Hallaway weaves the real life current events of today into her book, which I liked.

You will fall in love with Garnet and her and her internal challenge of carrying two goddesses within her. She must choose which Goddess to keep. Will she choose The Dark Goddess Lillith or Athena the helpful savor Goddess. Pick up this great book, and find out what

I am sad that this is the last Garnet book. I really enjoy her as a character. Plus I don't believe the end of this book wrapped up the series enough for me. I have a lot of questions about the future of Garnet and Sebastian. But I guess they did somewhat get settled down. This story was a little less intense then others before it and felt a it disjointed, but I do like how more sure of herself Garnet has become and how she realized who she wanted to be, Goddess wise. Sebastian, in his ever-suff...more

I started reading it and had to stop at page 52. In the movie 9 1/2 weeks, Mickey Rourke (who was really hot back then!) makes Kim Basinger do a strip tease to "You can leave your hat on" a slow sexy song by Joe Cocker.
Well, in this awful book, the guy strips to "take your hat off"! Right tune, wrong title.
"Honeymoon" is a very bad mishmash of every other PNR book we've ever read. The "heroine" is a witch who just happens to have 2, yes 2, goddesses residing in her. And, her wedding to her vam...more

I'm having a hard time wanting to read this book. I miss the characters from the other books and this one seems so out of character from the other ones. I dunno. I am about a third of the way through and am not impressed just yet. Maybe around the middle it will get better. The first 4 kept me wanting to read more and more. This one? I keep putting down to go off and do other things. I remember doing this the first time I read it. Tate Hallaway probably should have stopped with the previous stor...more
Liz Buchanan
What a great end to a series! Ms Hallaway wraps it up beautifully! There is action, which is a common thing for Garnet. Garnet also comes to terms and finally accepts Lilith. The characters are rich and full of life. The one thing I wish Ms Hallaway would have done is included more of Sebastian in the series. He always seems to be MIA from the story and only is included here and there. He is a great character and him and Garnet blend well together. But all in all a great book. I will miss readin...more
Tiffany Adams
The last book of the Garnet Lacey series! Hallaway manages to be cliche in a non-average way (yes I'm aware that that makes no sense) that you just can't help but smile at. Perky, self-serving, eco-friendly blonde witch becomes sole survivor after witch hunters attack! Said witch hosts Lilith at mass murder party, resulting in move and goth cosmetic changes! Goth fakes death, finds Vampire soul mate, buys New Age store, outmaneuvers fellow Gods/Goddesses & becomes Demigod after realizing her...more

In this last book in the Garnet Lacey series by Tate Hallaway, Garnet and her vampire husband, Sebastian are off on their honeymoon..or are they? Of course, trouble always seems to find our Wiccan friend and this book is no exception. From the start, Garnet sensed something is just not right. Of course, her senses are accurate. Facing all kinds of Gods in disguise, a kidnapping, and trouble fomr The FBI, garnet also faces the decision of whether to release the Goddess Lillith once and for all. T...more

It wasn't as great as some of the others it seemed rushed.. But sad to see this series ended..

Well this was is last book in the series which I did not know when I started reading...I guess it makes sense as the first book started with meeting her husband and each book since has progressed their relationship so we now have Garnet on her supposed honeymoon.

I was happy that we were able to revisit with most of the characters from previous books. There is not a strong plot but there is some humour and we see some resolution to the issue of the two residing goddesses.

Overall a nice send off...more
Kira
2 1/2 stars. This one lacked the humor of the earlier books. Many of the usual side characters weren't in this one, so it didn't have the same flow to it.

Another Garnet Lacy story... Poor woman finds trouble every where she goes... lol
I must admit Tate Hallaway did some nice bedroom scenes in this book. Any who, the book was a nice read but not my favorite out of the series. It was just too much ! I wanted a story more about Sabastian and Garnet, NOT Monsters, Illuminati, & kidnapping ex boyfriends... I guess i just wanted a story that just focused on them not the troubles she goes through on a monthly basis. Other then that the book was goo...more

I had trouble getting my head into this book, I must admit I skimmed some parts. There was a lot of personal introspection and not much action and the rest of the plot seemed a little disjointed - most of the events seemed to be thrown in to make it interesting but the majority of the book involved Garnet having an epiphany and reflecting on her life, I suppose it's because she has a lot of growing up to do. The ending wrapped up nicely, with a little unexpected shock at the end to add some spic...more

I really wasn't a fan of this book. The only reason I finished it was because it was the last of the series and felt I needed to see the series to the end. The book moved the main characters from their usual setting and also forgot to include a lot of the supporting characters that you grow to like throughout the series. It took a while to grab me(if it even grabbed me at all) and it seemed like just when I thought it would get interesting it really didn't.
Kieraanne
This book was pretty good. I think the last book put me off this series for some reason I can't recall so I delayed reading this for awhile. I wouldn't go so far as to say it was worth the wait, but it wasn't a complete waste of time. I think the first two books in this series are still the best. I'm a little disappointed that the author says this is the last of the series as I still see plenty of directions to take the story, but what can you do? ;)
Lori Whitwam
A nice visit with "old friends," but lacking compared to earlier books in the series. I was never sure if the main plot was being stuck and trying to get out of the Twin Cities, the people "hunting" them (and, um... why?), trying to come to terms with her past, or the two goddesses battling for control of her. Loved the Cities details, having lived here for 14 years, and the descriptions of Minnesotan personality.
Stephanie
A fun trip with witchy Garnet through her no-go honeymoon in winter Minnesota. I loved Garnet's struggle to figure out which goddess to keep- Lilith, mother of Demons or Athena, warrior priestess. The plot is engaging with plenty of cool action. My complaint: not enough Sebastian, also not enough of the secondary characters. Since this is the last book, I would have appreciated more resolution.
Jennifer
Quite possibly the most wild, crazy, fun, entertaining one yet! Insane and unbelievable! What a great ride! Way to go out with a bang (if that's what the series is doing)! Thoroughly enjoyed it- got a big kick out of the reference to the "Three Billy Goats Gruff" at the ending; that was my favorite fairy tale as a child!
