1.0 out of 5 stars Really disappointing, 27 May 2006
This review is from: Honeymoon (Paperback)
Every time I buy a James Patterson book I do so hoping that he's gotten some of that old flair back and I'll love it. This didn't happen with Honeymoon and I've decided that I've given him the benefit of the doubt one too many times now and Honeymoon will be my last James Patterson purchase.

The story centers around a woman named Nora Sinclair who's being investigated by the FBI (although she doesn't know that) because her husband/fiancés keep dying in the same way. In an effort to see if she's the quintessential `Black Widow' or just really unlucky with men the FBI send in John O'Hara to pose as Craig Reynolds, Insurance guy with a life-insurance policy from Nora's latest dead fiancé leaving her $1.9m better off.

While the story itself wasn't a bad idea the execution just didn't live up. The characters weren't developed enough to have a real insight into them and the only one we really got to know was the baddy and you come away liking her. The good-looking guy falling for the beautiful woman was just such a cliché! And the ending......that was seriously the worst ending ever. As somebody else mentioned the letter from Nora's Mum was never explained and I was left wondering if I'd missed a chapter! I also felt that the whole deal about the Tourist was pointless and unnecessary. All in all this was a seriously below par book and has signed my `adios' to James Patterson.
