‘I’m your husband, Chloe. We’re a partnership now and we do what’s best for us as a couple. It’s not open for discussion. We’re not going home.’
Chloe had the dream wedding. Dan is her perfect man. They haven’t known each other for long, but as she walked down the aisle and saw him standing by the altar, tears glistening in his eyes, she knew this was forever.
Later, as they relax on a beautiful island, settling in to their new married life together, they congratulate themselves on their lovely wedding day, and Dan jokes that he’d like them to stay there forever.
But as the honeymoon goes on, he becomes increasingly adamant. They shouldn’t leave. In fact, he won’t let her…
An utterly gripping psychological thriller for fans of Gillian Flynn, Clare Mackintosh, and The Wife Between Us.
When we first meet Chloe. Life couldn’t be better. She has met the man of her dreams and is setting off on her honeymoon to a fabulous destination. It isn’t long though before alarm bells started going off in my head, or in Chloe’s for that matter!
I really don’t want to say to much about the story as think it would spoil others enjoyment to do so. Dan is a character though who I just couldn’t work out. On the outside he seems a really caring and lovely guy who wants the best for Chloe, but like her, I was starting to have some serious doubts.
The story takes some unexpected turns as the tension mounts. I was guessing at all sorts as to why Dan is being the way he is. This is a story that really goes to show about how much you really know about the one you love.
The Honeymoon is an enthralling read packed full of secrets and lies. It’s one of those books that draws you straight in from picking it up and making it very hard to put back down again. Will certainly keep you on your toes and have you on the edge of you seat when things start to unravel. Another great read by the author.
My thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Rona lives on the Isle of Man with her husband, two dogs and three guinea pigs. She has been a bookworm since she was a child and now she’s actually creating stories of her own, which still feels like a dream come true.
She is an outdoorsy person and loves stomping up a mountain, walking the coastal paths and exploring the wonderful beaches on the Island while she’s plotting how to kill off her next victim. She also makes sure she deletes her Google history on a regular basis, because… well, you can’t be too careful when you spend your life researching new and ingenious ways for people to die.
She has three children and two step-children who are now grown up and leading varied and interesting lives, which provides plenty of ideas for new stories!
