The Honeymoon by Tina Seskis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
There's trouble in paradise . . .
For as long as she can remember, Jemma has been planning the perfect honeymoon. A fortnight's retreat to a five-star resort in the Maldives, complete with luxury villas, personal butlers and absolute privacy.
It should be paradise. But it's turned into a nightmare.
Because the man Jemma married a week ago has just disappeared from the island without a trace. And now her perfect new life is vanishing just as quickly before her eyes.
After everything they've been through together, how can this be happening? Is there anyone on the island who Jemma can trust? And above all - where has her husband gone?
When I read the blurb of this book I knew it would be one that I was going to enjoy. It sounded right up my street.
This book jumps from the past to present and gives the reader a picture of how Jemma ended up in a luxury resort in the Maldives. This is something that she has dreamed of for years and now it has finally arrived there seems to be trouble in paradise. One morning Jemma wakes up and Jamie (her husband) is missing, she chooses not to alert the authorities straight away but decides to confide in a woman she has just met.
When things start to become serious and it looks like Jamie isn't coming back the police begin to suspect Jemma. Is she really capable of killing her husband? What would be the point?
I did enjoy this, it was everything I enjoy in a book, mystery/thriller chick lit and set somewhere exotic, however I thought it took a long time to build and then the ending happened so quick. Almost you blink and you miss it, I also felt a little let down by the ending as I thought it was unbelievable. Saying this I would still recommend it to others as it would be a fab holiday read. Due to these reasons I have given this 3.5*, rounded up for Amazon and Goodreads.
I would like to thank the publisher for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
