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.
Ok but felt more like a draft..
This book had promise but felt like it was a draft which had another few revisions to go before it would be a completed novel. Characters are somewhat vaguely described and many ideas are underdeveloped. Ending came about abruptly and the story fizzled to a close. For a free book and an author's first attempt it is not bad, but this writer needs to align with a good editor to achieve a book worth any $.
Death by Honeymoon
Amateurish, clunky writing. Feels like it was written by a high school student. Naive plot and investigation. Lots of errors.
Fake book by fake author.
Could have been good
...If not for the terrible grammar, off phrasing and improper use of English. Who thinks Turf is a reasonable alternative to Surf? ...and thats just one example. It's a little maddening to read and be confused by the wording.
