Book Description

A walk down the aisle, a resort hotel, a drink on the beach...for these unlucky couples, the honeymoon's over.

A newlywed couple steps into the sauna in their deluxe honeymoon suite--and never steps out again. When another couple is killed while boarding their honeymoon flight to Rome, it becomes clear that someone is targeting honeymooners, and it's anyone's guess which happy couple is next on the list.

FBI Agent John O'Hara is deep into solving the case, while Special Agent Sarah Brubaker is hunting another ingenious serial killer, whose victims all have one chilling thing in common.

As wedding hysteria rises to a frightening new level, John and Sarah work ever more closely together in a frantic attempt to decipher the logic behind two rampages. SECOND HONEYMOON is James Patterson's most mesmerizing, most exciting, and most surprising thriller ever.

Editorial Reviews



"[Patterson] again shows his usual flair for brisk narrative, strong suspense and genuine twists...nearly impossible to stop reading."—Publishers Weekly

"Whether you're cuddled up in front of a fire or basking on a sunny beach, Honeymoon will be over all too soon."—

"Honeymoon has the quick-cut pacing and visual snap of a screenplay."—

5.0 out of 5 stars "Crazy Summer Thriller"............. June 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Through the last years I have learned to pick an choose which James Patterson's novels to read, especially since he started co-authoring..With "Second Honeymoon" I would say he has another hit on his hands....This is such a fast paced, psychological/thriller you won't want to stop turning the pages...The in-depth characterization, the pairing of returning suspended FBI Agent, John O'Hara and new Agent Sarah Brubaker was brillant...They each complement each other's personality which adds an element of "humor" to the story..((I don't know but I never found a serial killer novel funny before, so it's a strange mix))..Which I think you needed with all the pressure they are under trying to identify and catch two psychotic serial killers at the same time..It's is an actioned packed, fun rollercoaster ride all the way to the shocking end..This is a stand alone novel you don't have to read the first to understand what's going on here...The plot flows seamlessly and all ties together in the end..

This is not just about the "Second Honeymoon" serial killer case it's even better...Now we have the "John O'Hara" serial killer on the loose..Well, Agent John O' Hara was just as surprised to see his name on the CNN News Channel when he turned it on..Pray that's not your name because the killer will not stop until he finds the right one..He is out to avenge his sister's death and just hearing that name triggers long dormant, painful memories..But there is a link between the two cases and that's when Agent Sarah Brubaker gets involved..Through her investigation, she digs through past FBI solved files and comes across the "HoneyMoon" serial killer case from yrs ago..

As usual, Janes Patterson had me turning pages and not wanting to put the book down. This book, co-authored by Howard Roughan was a real thriller full of twists and turns. Very good read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad plot, bad characters, bad pace, bad writing September 29, 2013
By Ashesn
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Let me preclude this review by saying that I have never read James Patterson before. This was the first of his titles I have ever picked up, and disappointment doesn't even being to cover what I feel about it.
This book was just bad. Awful, in fact.
The plot was uninteresting and rushed. At no point did it feel like a crime novel - there was no suspense, no mystery, no deep insights into the minds of the people who were committing the crimes. It felt like a bad soap opera at best. At worst... I don't even have the vocabulary to describe what it was at worst, but I feel more assured saying so because if you'd read this book, you'd be aware that the authors don't either. It felt like they'd taken two different story lines and thrown them haphazardly and messily together. It was just plain awful. The pacing was ridiculous too. Some other reviewers called it "fast paced" - I'd call it rushed. It was like they just wanted to spit the story out as fast as possible without building anything up properly.
As for the characters, wow. Just wow. It was like twilight with the insta-love crap. This is meant to be a novel for adults, not preteen girls. Apart from being completely unrealistic, the characters were also just plain boring. Not to mention irritating. The whole "rebel who doesn't play by the rules" thing got boring after ten pages.
Not only all of that, but the book suffered some severe editing issues. Some of the ways things were phrased was just plain bad writing, and there were plot holes that were just bad editing.

I don't even remotely understand how this book has been highly reviewed. If you like crime/thriller novels, don't even waste your time. This was awful, and I'm sorry I paid actual money for it. If I could get a refund, I would.

I've been a James Patterson fan way before they made movies based upon his books, so I'm very familiar with his style. THIS BOOK DOES NOT COMPARE TO THE 1ST HONEYMOON murderer. I'm confused by the higher reviews. Maybe these people became his fans based on his movies first, so they don't know the high standards of his original work. Very disappointed in these co-authored (?) books. It used to be that I'd stay up until 4am trying to finish a Patterson novel in 1-3 days. These co-authored books I put down and don't pick them back up until a week later to continue reading. Its like the story outline is his, but someone else has written most of the book. NOTE: its not just this co-author Howard Roughan, but I'm finding ALL of his co-authored books missing something.

If that's the case then the other authors name should be 1st stating "comparable" to Patterson, because I used to immediately "grab & buy" anything Patterson, which I won't anymore.

I had forgotten how much I dislike reading this author's books. The story starts off so well and seems exciting. Then it just becomes very ordinary. A very simplistic plot and writing style.

Love Love James Patterson and I truly enjoyed this book. I often wonder where he gets all his ideas and his books vary so much never telling the same story twice with different characters like some authors.
