This review is from: My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon (Paperback)
"My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon" is (naturally) a follow-up to the highly entertaining "My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding" anthology and in fact contains several stories written by authors who contributed to the first collection.

Newlydeads by Caitlin Kittredge
A "Tale of Black London" story Petunia (Pete) Caldecott discovers her friend Jack has told hotel staff they are on their honeymoon to garner some freebies. Pete is left angry, but surely it's not a situation which warrants their sacrifice to a demon?
Where the Heart Lives by Marjorie M Liu

Cat Got Your Tongue by Katie MacAlister
Raphael and Joy are honeymooning in a Scottish Castle when they are approached by the ghostly Lady Lily Summerton (aka The Green Lady). She doesn't want much from them; just vengeance against her cheating, murderous, equally deceased husband.
Half of Being Married by Lilith Saintcrow
Their honeymoon goes from bad to worse when Kat discover her new hubby is a werewolf; whilst Mitch is left unimpressed Kat never mentioned she was a vampire hunter. Now add to this mess a bunch of disappearances and a vampire nest.
A Wulf in Groom's Clothing by Ronda Thompson
Part of the "Wild Wulfs" series, newlyweds Laura and Sam both keep secrets. Sophisticated city girl Laura may have misled Sam with regards to her love of the great outdoors; however Sam needs to explain why he likes to run naked during a full moon.
This is a great paranormal romance anthology and a must have for fans who enjoyed its prequel. If a collection of short stories grabs the reader enough to investigate the full length novels available by the contributing authors then it's done a good job; and "My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon" does exactly that. Let's hope further anthologies are published; perhaps featuring supernatural anniversaries or christenings.
