The next book in my ‘Charity Box’ was Honeymoon by James Patterson.
Goodreads: How does it feel to be desired by every man and envied by every woman? Wonderful. This is the life Nora Sinclair has dreamed about, the life she’s worked hard for, the life she will never give up.
She doesn’t just attract men, she enthralls them. So why is FBI agent John O’Hara interested in Nora Sinclair? Mysterious things happen to people around her, especially the men. And there is something dangerous about Nora, something that lures O’Hara at the same time that it fills him with fear.
Is something dark hidden in the gaps of her past? As O’Hara spends more and more time getting to know her, is he pursuing justice? Or his own fatal obsession?
You know what? I still do not understand why Nora Sinclair did what she did. I do not. There is not much background. There is nothing to say at what point she was broken so much and why… The FBI investigation has no beginning as well. Everything, sort of, happens. It is assumed that we understand the ins and outs of it all.
What else I don’t understand is what was the point of second plot line. It was all too confusing for me.
However, the villain in this book is very lovable and enviable to tell you the truth. The main hero, in contrast, is nothing. One big fat zero. What happens to him and with him is way beyond what he deserves (in a good and in a bad way).
In short, if you are after a very light read that would not make you think and that would not leave any aftertaste or hunger for more, the Honeymoon is for you.
Once again, writing is short and dynamic. Chapters are short and break the narrative very nicely. The book can be read in a night. Nothing scary or disgusting. All beautiful, luxurious, attractive and posh.
On a scale of 1 to 10 when it comes to James Patterson books, I’d give it a 3.
Happy light reading, everyone.
