The latest in the bewitching series from the author of Dead if I Do
In wintry Wisconsin, occult bookseller - and witch - Garnet Lacey isn't immune to the cold. But even though her new vampire husband doesn't actually have a pulse, love will keep them warm - if the honeymoon doesn't drive them apart. Thanks to a vengeful frost demon, instead of a gothic honeymoon in Transylvania, Garnet and Sebastian are stuck in exotic Minneapolis, Minnesota. And with gods and goddesses running amok all over town, Garnet can't seem to find much quality time for her new hubby....
Would you listen to Honeymoon of the Dead again? Why?
I'd listen to the entire series again! well written, entertaining and well thought out
What did you like best about this story?
the whole thing. characters are well developed and consistent throughout. the slightly sarcastic tone enhanced the narrative and well, i laughed myself silly. a few tears too...
Which scene was your favorite?
no favorite as there was always more
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
absolutely! after listening to one of the books i bought the rest and listened to them all, forsaking all others loaded on my ipod!!
Any additional comments?
Listen to this series- and I hope there are more volumes to be written!!

Is there anything you would change about this book?
The heroine behaves in stupid ways. She is a smart witch but oh my god, she ruminates for hours then behaves in a very scatterbrained manner.
What could Tate Hallaway have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Garnet could be a great heroine but in Honeymoon of the Dead, she out does herself in transparent and ridiculous schemes that anyone can see through. She doesn't want to tell Sebastian about the hotel room trashed by Lilith because he'll be mad. What is this--I Love Lucy? Ricky will be angry so Lucy must think up a way to distract him?
Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Amanda Ronconi saved this book and the series. Thanks to her skill, you can forgive garnet's ridiculous musings. Ronconi can read (almost) anything and make the it sound better than it was written.
Was Honeymoon of the Dead worth the listening time?
No. I couldn't finish it because one foolish decision begets another until you want to smack garnet. My friend couldn't get through the first book because garnet irritated her too much. I made it to the 4th book!
Any additional comments?
Thank you, Amanda Ronconi!

It was as humorous as the former books but much less entertaining and way over the top in its plausibility. There were too many incidents that happened to the point of coming off like a slapstick “Laurel and Hardy” show. Overall, it was just okay.
I love Amanda Ronconi so much. I enjoyed this book but wonder what happened to our couple in the future. As far as I can tell there are no further adventures. That bums me out. This series has been enjoyable. The best part is always Amanda's narration. I don't always like Garnet but it is still a worthwhile read.
Any additional comments?
I was really looking forward to this book, but it just seemed to ramble. It was harder to follow than the previous books in this series. I listened to it again hoping to like it better, but the best I can do is a three-star rating for the story. It was still interesting for me because of the continuing adventures of Garnet and Sebastian, and it had its romantic moments, but . . . <br/><br/>Amanda Ronconi's narration was excellent as usual.
Great, fast-paced, adventure and romance. A struggle between goddesses and a hero cat! I hope the next book is written and recorded soon! The narrator is awesome as always!
I like these books...they just need to be a bit longer. The stories are good, I like the main characters and the narrator is awesome!
love this series listen to it again and again. great voice work great story love
I really like this narrator. I rarely get confused with the changing voices of the different characters. This is a mindless entertainment. I laugh at some of the jokes and fast forward through the gratuitous sex scenes. They're hot for each other, we get it. I keep going because I like this author's snarky sense of humor. Some of the characters a endearing too. I wouldn't read a second time, and will probably forget all about it fairly quickly but sometime I want a story that doesn't take a lot effort.
Fun enough, enjoyable. Light hearted. Good character development. No lasting literary value other than a story heard. Nothing to ponder or reflect on. Completed 4 books in 4 days. Could very much do without the intimate details of whats in who literally worded as such. This wastes about 10 minutes of a 9 hour book. Would consider the stories as rated R at least. Would consider other books by author.
