I just completed reading

I just completed reading Patterson's 2005 International Thriller of the Year 'Honeymoon'. Straight up the first chapter was such a put-off that I set the novel aside for several weeks. Undercover FBI agent O'Hara is on two cases, one of which is a suspected 'black widow' killer and the other, well it seems to be more filler than anything and hardly germane to the main story. John gets too close to the black widow and falls under her spell long enough to get himself in a dicey fix. What I found so disappointing was that he (smart, street savy cop) almost dies by her hand in a manner consistent with her other victims, but for the sake of a story Patterson makes him dumb enough not to pick up on the attempted poisoning. I have to admit that despite the disgusting opening, stereotypical characters and overly used plot devices I did find the novel an entertaining read, so I can see why this mass market, formulaic piece was successfully. If you enjoy Patterson, you'll enjoy 'Honeymoon'.

Right up front I'll say t

Right up front I'll say that this is one of James Patterson's better books. Honeymoon was both horrifying and intriguing. While I wanted to know a little more about what drove Nora to be the way she was, I was still satisfied with the ending. The story begins with Nora juggling a husband and fiance. Through crafty computer skills and a little bit of luck, she manages to get wealthy off of these men, which in turns makes them expendable. Nora has little regret as she ends their lives. The story is also told from the perspective of John O'Hara, an FBI agent who is suspicious of Nora. Despite his job and his knowledge of the woman, he becomes too close. I liked both the characters! I know I'm not supposed to like a murderer but she was so matter of fact about it all. I couldn't help but want to know what she would do next. John was smart and sarcastic, which to me means he was quite lovable. It was a quick and easy read that kept me reading to the end.

James Patterson's newest

James Patterson's newest co authored novel, Honeymoon, one of the main characters is often heard saying to himself that "things aren't always the way they appear." And as the book Honeymoon unfolds these words couldn't be truer. In this roller coaster read of a novel written by a master of suspense and co authored by Howard Roughan, readers are witness to a black widow, Nora Sinclair who masterminds the demise of three wealthy men. When an FBI agent is hot on her trail to prove her guilt. he finds himself unfortunately also caught in her web.It's not a bad novel but there are so problems with it. I guess the one major thing that I didn't like about this book was that the first chapter is set way ahead in the future to most of the rest of the book so it gives away what will happen later and you are just hoping that scene will hurry up so you will have some mystery left. I gave it 3 stars, but it's more like 2.5

This book was my least fa

This book was my least favorite Patterson co-write to date. I felt that the story lacked originality and had been done many times before. The story is about Nora Sinclair a beautiful and deadly black widow. She killed her first husband, who was a cardiologist,then she killed her fiance and drained both mens off shore bank accounts. This fact is what alerted the FBI to her crimes. Enter John O'Hara an FBI agent trying to tie the crimes to this woman before she kills her next husband/finance but he finds himself drawn physically to Nora. There is another side story going on that ties the two together but if I go into any other detail it was spoil it for the next reader. This was definitely a fast but light read perfect for the beach or mindless entertainment if you don't mind the been there done that aspect of the story.

This was my first and mos

This was my first and most likely my last Patterson book. First off, I want to start by saying that this book is mildly entertaining, as in, I want to read something that will not give me much thought, nor will it keep my interest beyond putting it down. This book is an EXTREMELY fast read. I finished it in two sittings. Mainly because it has about 80 chapters that are one page each, which makes the 350+ paged book really only about 100 with so many BLANK pages or half filled pages. The plot is extremely cliched. Murderous woman makes lots of guys fall in love with her, then she kills them and takes their money. FBI Agent goes undercover to nab her but falls for her. Or does he? Or doesn't he? Honestly, I could care less!!
