Publisher's Summary

A walk down the aisle, a resort hotel, a drink on the beach...for these unlucky couples, the honeymoon's over.

A newlywed couple steps into the sauna in their deluxe honeymoon suite - and never steps out again. When another couple is killed while boarding their honeymoon flight to Rome, it becomes clear that someone is targeting honeymooners, and it's anyone's guess which happy couple is next on the list.

FBI Agent John O'Hara is deep into solving the case, while Special Agent Sarah Brubaker is hunting another ingenious serial killer, whose victims all have one chilling thing in common.

As wedding hysteria rises to a frightening new level, John and Sarah work ever more closely together in a frantic attempt to decipher the logic behind two rampages. Second Honeymoon is James Patterson's most mesmerizing, most exciting, and most surprising thriller ever.

Fun ride, good twists

How many different crime fighter stories can there be where multiple factors collide in a believable way? Well, now there is one more and it's a good one. As soon as the story began I was invested and interested to see how the different stories were going to collide. The story did not disappoint. It was creative, with some great twists.

The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the male narrator, Jay Snyder. The female wasn't great either, but it felt like she got better as the story went on and she became nicely invisible. Snyder though was overly dramatic to the point of making the listen less enjoyable. There were several moments when I thought, "oh, that was lame" and at first thought it was badly written, then I realized that if those moments hadn't been read by someone who was massively overacting, they might have been funny and endearing, instead, they came across as just bad.

There is also quite a bit of dramatic music and some sound effects like footsteps which were really jarring at first. I have never listened to a book on Audible that included those. I got used to them, and while I don't think they added to the story, for me, they weren't a negative.

This is a light summer listen. There are a lot of those out there, but this one is smart, fun, and worthy of investing the time. I recommend.

Good first half

I really enjoyed Patterson's earlier work and maybe it was more his co-author's style but I only cared for the first part of this book, an interesting story and good background. The  narration was okay, and then..... The story split, it seemed like filler, what was starting to be a great, interesting story ended up splintering and pulled in too many directions.

"So worried about the kids, and going to ...??..".....It just fell into the abyss along with several other started story lines, and if I'm not mistaken a villain may have changed genders, or were we to assume a costume? Not quite sure. Too many holes for me.

The narration was so over dramatic towards the end my family asked me what I was listening to. It felt similar to an old radio show. Dun..dun..dun..... Likable enough characters but the first half was much better than the last.

Could have been a really great story line if it was a little more serious and stayed more on track. Not the James Patterson I know and loved.

More! When is the next installment of O'Hara?

If you could sum up Second Honeymoon in three words, what would they be?

Exciting, interesting,suspenseful thriller. I know that I used four words, but this story is among the best of Patterson. Could not identify the formula in this one. Spectacular! oops, that is now five words.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I wanted to know what was going to happen next. The plot kept me interested.

Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder and Ellen Archer ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to Jay Snyder or Ellen Archer's performances before this story. I will seek out more of their narrations though. Jay Snyder is O'Hara though. I would not want to listen to another narrator.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did want to listen to it all at once, but Snyder's voice put me to sleep. Not because the plot was boring, but because his voice is so relaxing! I found that I had to rewind and play again.

Any additional comments?

Good beginning for a Patterson series about a FBI partnership-hint, hint

Fun Book to Listen to

If you could sum up Second Honeymoon in three words, what would they be?

Entertaining, exciting and suspenseful

What other book might you compare Second Honeymoon to and why?

Oh gosh... it's more of a murder mystery with FBI agents. It's kind of like a CSI tv show.

Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder and Ellen Archer ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

They are great. I really enjoyed their voices.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, it keeps you hanging. Unfortunately I listened to it on my way work so I listened to it broken up.

Any additional comments?

Good book, kind of confusing when they switch back and forth to different people. It take a while before you realize they are all tied together. But it's interesting and the two main characters are relate-able. It's a good book... but not the best ever!

Patterson starts quick and keeps it moving!

Enough has been written about the book content, so I won't repeat. The reading was well done, dramatic, with background music making it seem like a radio program, as was mentioned before. I listen for entertainment, so I enjoyed that component, just as I enjoyed both of the readers.
The story is fast-paced, typical of Patterson. His style keeps me engaged and makes it fun listening. True "summer" or "vacation" listening; not deep, just entertainment.

Rediculous!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I have no idea!

What was most disappointing about James Patterson and Howard Roughan ’s story?

The sound effects were distracting and ridiculous. It's as if someone knew how bad the acting and the story was and tried to punch it up with sound effects of music and jet skis and chase scene sound effects.

Would you be willing to try another one of Jay Snyder and Ellen Archer ’s performances?

Not sure

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Irritation. The conversations were cheesy and the sound effects made me angry. I should have been warned I would have never bought it. I have never heard an audible book with sound effects. It was a desperate attempt to create suspense and had the opposite effect.

Another great Patterson novel!!!!!

I enjoyed this book immensely from beginning to end. This book grabs your attention from early on and keeps it throughout the entire book. It has lots of action. There are two serial killers on the loose in this book. John chases one, while Sarah an FBI special agent from Quanico chases the other. Eventually they team up to try and bring them down together.
As I stated earlier this book grabs your attention from the beginning making it hard stop listening. I blew through both Honeymoon books in one weekend. This book is definitely worth a credit and I believe the reader will enjoy this book as much as I did.
Jay Snyder and Ellen Archer both did a fantastic job narrating this book. I really enjoyed listening to the sound of both of their voices. The only thing I didn't like about this book was the awful sound effects. Their was no need for them and it math
