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!
This was very different than many of the other SEP books I have read. However, it was different in a good way. I grew attached to the characters and it was not all roses all the time. There was some tragedy and some triumph. I highly recommend this one.

I love almost everything Susan Elizabeth Phillips writes but I really liked Honey Moon. The characters are so likable and the dialogue is witty. At times, very touching.

The narrator did an excellent job (as always). However I was disappointed about the book itself. I though I had downloaded a nice Susan Elizabeth Phillips book. Great to listen to in bed, when I wasn’t feeling all right. However it wasn’t a story like all the other books of her. I clearly didn’t read all the other review before buying it. Otherwise I could have known it was a different kind of story. Definitely not a story ‘for escapism’ as I have read afterwards on another review.

What disappointed you about Honey Moon?
I buy Susan Elizabeth Phillips books for her romantic comedy writing style. I love her books for that reason and Anna Fields know exactly how to perform her books in her readings. I never thought I would find a book of Susan Elizabeth Phillips' that I didn't like. I love all of her books except for this one, so far. It was depressing and one of the reasons I buy her books is to make me laugh.
Would you ever listen to anything by Susan Elizabeth Phillips again?
Have you listened to any of Anna Fields’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Anna Fields is a great performer and she can make anything work, but I don't think even Anna can help the depresses nature of this book.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Normally I prefer Susan Phillips' romances with wit and humor. This was not one of them, but I enjoyed it anyway. I had tears several times, and then there was love and warmth later. I liked the characters, their good sides, bad sides and other sides. I liked the plot development. The three main characters had troubled childhoods, loss of parents, foster care, etc. but eventually found love.
The audiobook narrator Anna Fields was wonderful.

I am glad this was not the first SEP book I listened to or I would have NEVER tried another one. I found the lead characters humorless, self-absorbed & way too angsty. I got depressed just listening to the book & it seemed to drag on for ages. I kept going to see if the characters would become more interesting or come to grips with some of their inner demons - all of them have major hang-ups. The ending I though was forced & not realistic. I saw no foreshadowing that allows Eric to suddenly fall in love (conveniently for the plot) with Honey... needed to show, not tell. Then when I thought there might be a happy ending, the author throws in a horrendous child molestation situation.By this point in the book I was so fed up that I can't even remember how it ends. Some kind of happy ever after w/ Honey/Eric but really no one's changed much. Sorry I spent the money & time with this story.

So much different than the others. Not my favorite, at least I thought, but this story was so deep and meaningful and it left me in awe.
This author always pleases me with great characters and stories. Thanks again M's Phillips! This one you will want to listen to in one day,, start early.
