Death by Honeymoon

Death by Honeymoon (Caribbean Murder Mystery #1) by Jaden Skye

Thoughts Before Reading:

I received this book free from BookBub an amazing site that you can get free ebooks from. You know me and free things.

Plot Synopsis:

Cindy and Clint have just been married.

They decide to head out to Barbados for their honeymoon.

But instead of the high class side that are on the rougher, more rugged side as Clint prefers it for surfing. Things might not have gone well in the engagement, mainly his family hates her, but Cindy is so happy that this wedding marks the beginning of a new and long life.

But one morning, Cindy come down with food poisoning and stays in the room, planning on resting and meeting Clint on the beach in an hour. She accidentally oversleeps, and run down to the beach.

On the beach she finds Clint’s body. Death on their honeymoon.

Cindy returns to New York but can’t go back to her job investigating facts for a major newspaper. She can’t leave things alone as their turns out to be too many questions. First Clint’s family start accusing her of murder and threatening her and trying to control Clint’s stuff and his money.

Then it turns out that Clint was lying to her about some things. He said he went to a conference to talk on a paper, but went to a completely different city with a friend.

It turns out that he also has a child with an ex-girlfriend.

What?!

For Cindy the last straw is when her sister borrows her car and crashes due to cut brake lines, almost dying.

After that, Cindy heads back to the island to find out the answers to what really happened to her husband. But can Cindy navigate an island she knows little about and not only solve this case-but survive?

Thoughts After Reading:

I enjoyed this book.

At times Cindy seems a little plain and wooden but I thought it did well as a first novel in trying to capture your attention, develop characters, etc.

It is an interesting mystery and as the rest of the series was free, I’m interested to see if it stays good or goes downhill. I guess we will just have to wait and see.
