    1. 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, suspensewell, really anything. The upside: This book will make me remember to pack a book next time!

    2. Didn't think I was going to like this much, considering it is for adults and is a crime-thriller type thing. But I did enjoy it! I've been trying to get out and read a wider range of material and this book was the beginning of that. I'm excited to see what other wonders I will discover along the way.

    3. 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 [...]

    4. So this is the guy, who's top earning author of 2015, dwarfing all his competitors? Well now, I'm not gonna say that it is bullshit (though I cannot confirm or deny that I might or might not be thinking so), but certainly I'm gonna be very vocal about not understanding why and how, but mostly, why. Yes, this book was a page turner (chapters consisting of 2-3 pages, leaving a page empty besides a couple of lines up top more than once did not impede that), and yes, it has been quite decent story, [...]

    5. 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 [...]

    6. I liked Nora Sinclair.

    7. 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 pape [...]

    8. 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 cheesyLOTS cheesy. But I enjoyed it anyway, for the second time.

    9. Very enjoyable and fast-paced, but the ending was disappointing.

    10. 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. [...]

    11. 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 [...]

    12. I normally read James P books out of loyalty. He had me hooked with the first one I read London Bridges. I know he has written many books. This book didn't feature my lovable character Alex Cross. The main characer, the woman just had too many issues for me. I easily got tired of trailing her around the world as she lived out her imposter of a life.

    13. just WOW!!!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.karena kebingungan Castle minta saran dari [...]

    14. Have to say that I can’t join in with the praise heaped on Honeymoon on James Patterson and Howard Roughan’s websites. I will agree that it is a fast read - but then, the chapters are so brief that there is a lot of blank page in that book. I had real trouble with the “suspension of disbelief” bit however.Writers must want us readers to believe what they write, but:1. I believe that if the FBI came across a person removing 4.3 million dollars from a recently suddenly deceased person’s [...]

    15. 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 [...]

    16. 3.5 bintang untuk Honeymoon. Satu lagi cerita tentang perempuan sakit jiwa, kali ini membunuh suami2nya (iya, bukan cuma satu suami) yang kaya raya demi uangnya. Tapi bisa dibilang penyebab si Nora ini jadi tukang bunuh kurang ditegaskan disini. Ok, karena masa lalunya, tapi apakah karena dia benci pada ayahnya? atau karena orangtua2 angkatnya? Lalu apa sih sebenarnya isi surat Ibu Nora, Olivia kepada Nora? Alasan ibunya membunuh ayahnya? atau ngasih tau kalo dia sebetulnya tidak sinting? (yang [...]

    17. Awful, awful, awful! One of the worst books I've ever read. John O'Hara could be funny at times, but otherwise this book was an utter waste of time. I would have spent my time better watching paint dry. I kept reading it because this book actually won awards and I kept thinkingis HAS to get better.Nope. Truly sad that this book 1- could have won any awards and 2- that it actually got good reviews.The only reason to read this book is to see how truly awful it is. I feel bad even donating this to [...]

    18. Read this when it was first released but now I'm listening to the audiobook So far so goodFinished with the audio and if you like Patterson's stand alones you'll like this one. The only negative is while the readers had very pleasant voices the female reader had the same voice with no difference when changing female characters.

    19. I picked up this book because I'm taking James Patterson's Masterclass writing course and this is the book he uses for an example of how to do things. There was no other reason than that. I would not have read it otherwise because it would have sounded to me like a fairly stock black widow thriller. I do like thrillers as an occasional guilty pleasure, though I'm more a sci-fi/fantasy reader, but I wouldn't have gone for a black widow thriller. I like spy stories, or noir, or serial killers tryi [...]

    21. Light mystery read, although there were several huge things that bothered me. First, how did Nora escape suspicion once she killed the writer, especially if she had murdered Connor Brown seemingly a month before? And why did she fall in love with the insurance agent? That felt very off for her. And no one in the FBI would have thought to do a background research check on her, which would have led to discovering that her mother was in a psychiatric hospital? All in all, fun enough, but silly.

    22. Super easy read. It was pretty predictable but it did surprise me in places. Overall, it was a pretty good book.

    23. Well plotted and engaging characters make this Patterson book one of my favs! I can see why it's been a best seller for all this time. Loved it!

    24. Fast moving story of a black widow femme fatale with a trail of dead husbands and the FBI agent posing as a life insurance agent who, in the process of "investigating her claim" becomes involved with her.

    26. It was very difficult for me to decide on a rating for this novel. If I had been reading it over vacation at the beach, it might well have received 4-stars. However, I read it in conjunction with James Patterson's Master Class for novel writing which may not have put me in the best frame of mind for approaching it.The issue is that this is a light soufflé of a novel that was always engaging, but I didn't believe the characters and all of the twists and turns for a second. About a third of the [...]

    27. 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, [...]

    28. 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 [...]

    29. 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, Ho [...]
