Summary

The number-one best seller, with over 200 five-star reviews!

On the rugged, wild, eastern shore of Barbados, Cindy and Clint are enjoying their dream honeymoon, when paradise quickly turns into hell. Cindy finds her newly beloved taken away from her, drowned in a freak accident in the ocean. The local police are quick to declare it an accident, to insist that he was caught in a sudden riptide. But Cindy, left all alone, is not convinced.

Cindy must return to her and Clint's now-empty home in New York and face her in-laws, who never wanted Clint to marry her, and who did everything to make her engagement and wedding hell. She must deal with all of these women's backbiting, gossiping, and unspoken accusations, while she tries to get a handle on her own grief and to get clear on what really happened to Clint. Cindy is mailed an anonymous photo of a woman she had never met, addressed to Clint. As she tries to unravel the mysterious package, as she begins to dig deeper into Clint's emails and files, she realizes how many secrets Clint had been hiding from his past. She realizes that she didn't really know the man she loved. And she also realizes that Clint was murdered.

She digs deeper, into the depths of Clint's massive corporation, DGB oil, and as she starts to unearth information she shouldn't, she goes too far. Soon her own life is in peril. On the run, she realizes that the only way to get answers, and to save her own life, is to return to where it all began: Barbados. As she heads into the dark underside of the island, into the heart of the local villages, she is shocked to discover what really happened to her husband on their honeymoon. But by then, it may already be too late.

What a Great Crime Novel

Can't wait to read next in series. What a tragic love story but is only where this books starts. Really enjoyed performance by Fiona McGuinness she did an excellent job telling this story. One thing that makes it so great is that it could really happen, if it hasn't already. Enjoy!

Poorly written

I wanted to like this story, but sadly the poor writing thwarted that. I do think this author could be good, but more practice is needed.

Boring and predictable

This was a waste of money. It was boring and predictable from the beginning. Seems like a good premise, but poorly executed.

2nd half redeems itself for the 1st half!!

This book was pretty good the first half though has way too much chit-chat and going over the same things and it was just a little unrealistic. The second half of the book was pretty good,now that the second half was a different story it made sense and flowed together nicely.

5 Stars for Death by Honeymoon

Where does Death by Honeymoon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

5 stars for Death by Honeymoon by Jaden Skye. Narrated by Fiona McGuinness. I really enjoy the narration by Fiona McGuinness. She has a lot of versatility in her voice throughout the story. Jaden wrote a fast pace mystery that kept me guessing until the end.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Cindy, the wife. Because she didn't just except that her husbands death was an accident. When she got over the shock— she took action.

What does Fiona McGuinness bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Fiona brings a lot of versatility in the voices she performs in the story. The excitement, drama, and male voices she does are very good. Great job!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I listened to the book in 1 day. I couldn't put it down. I wanted to know who the killer was and why they killed Clint.

Any additional comments?

Jayen Skye kept me guessing throughout the book who the killer might be. I enjoyed the descriptions of the people, landscape, and clothing as well. Jayen and Fiona did an excellent job of entertaining me.

DNF

I tried. There is nothing wrong with the narrator. I just could not get past the multiple ways where we had to suspend belief. I'm. willing to go so far..The information the main character was able to access with ease ( husband's work email and reports, a coroner report, etc etc etc), no. Just no. She goes back to investigate and stays in the Honeymoon Suite? No. It also felt like there were multiple different plots or stories trying to happen. I just got to a point and decided I had enough. I do not recommend this book.
