Now, though, she's all grown up, a child star no longer, but still dramatic and passionate. Two men, Dash Coogan, a cowboy movie legend, and Eric Dillion, the town's bad boy, know how fiercely she loves and lives. What Honey wants is the family she never had. She'll take the man who latches onto her dreams and who can hang on for the ride!

I love mysteries in the style of P.D. James, Rex Stout, Elizabeth Peters, Dave Duncan, etc. I love sci fi written by Issac Asimov (the robot books), Douglas Adams, Jack McDevitt (Alex Benedict series) and Susan Collins. I love fantasy written by Terry Pratchett, and Kim Harrison. I love Kate Morton. I don't like graphic descriptions of violence.
I have listened to four other books by this author and simply can't believe the same author wrote this book and Nobody's Baby but Mine and Lady be Good. I loved the heroines of all the earlier books I listened to. They were strong, intelligent, funny women, and in parts of the books I laughed out loud. I loved the humor in the earlier books and was terribly disappointed to find no humor at all in Honey Moon. Also gone were all the strong, likable characters. All the characters in Honey Moon were weak, whiney, and melodramatic. What a disappointment!!
It was good, entertaining, but just not plausible. The dark twists that continued to break up any sort of comfort the listener may have grasped hold of, were not quite emphasised. It seemed disjointed; love story, moral integrity, incest, molestation, religion, magic... Just too much in a single book. I would have liked to have each piece have it's own book.
Did not enjoy this book as much as other SEP books. I had a hard time liking any of the main characters. They lacked the usual charm that goes along with the human foibles SEP usually creates in her characters.
This story lacks the light touch and comic banter that make later Susan Elizabeth Phillips books enjoyable. Some of the same elements are there--a spunky heroine, gorgeous famous man, etc, but the book is sentimental and overburdened with incongruous plot. Also this one costs 2 credits--not worth it!
