The Honeymoon – by Tina Seskis

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

There's trouble in paradise. . .

For as long as she can remember, Jemma has been planning the perfect honeymoon. A fortnight's retreat to a five-star resort in the Maldives, complete with luxury villas, personal butlers and absolute privacy. It should be paradise, but it's turned into a nightmare.

Because the man Jemma married a week ago has just disappeared from the island without a trace. And now her perfect new life is vanishing just as quickly before her eyes. After everything they've been through together, how can this be happening? Is there anyone on the island who Jemma can trust? And above all - where has her husband gone?

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Why haven’t I read a Tina Seskis book before?! Seriously though, I’m in love with her writing style. I usually don’t really that many physiological thrillers, but it’s a nice change in between. It’s absolutely electric and I enjoyed every single second of this book!!!

The book follows Jemma, who is on her honeymoon with her husband Jamie in the Maldives. They are in a luxury resort, but Jemma is not happy! Did she do the right thing in marrying Jamie?! However, everything changes when Jamie goes missing! What happened to him?! Has he drowned? Or just left? Jemma tries to remember the night before, but it’s hard. The police eventually get involved and Jemma is a mess, understandably of course!

The chapters alternate between “NOW” and the past. We find out, how Jemma met Jamie, that she dated his brother Dan first and what happened between them. This adds a lot of interesting and at times confusing facts to the story. Only in the end the whole picture can be put together, which is great, because there was always a mystery. Of course there is this other mystery of what happened to Jamie.

You keep guessing until the end of what actually happened. A lot of characters are involved and suspected, but there is always a surprise in between and the storyline is full of twists and turns. All the characters play a vital role in this story and they were all very well lined out, which is impressive and brilliantly done! All the characters are unique and have their story to tell. They have secrets too and it’s very interesting to see the connection between them.

I was hooked to this story from the start! It’s tense, full of drama, intrigues, lies and secrets. It’s def the best thriller I have ever read, very unpredictable and with a shocker of an ending! I really want to read more about Jemma now, how life is for her a few years later.

I was literally at the edge of my seat after every chapter and just wanted to find out what really happened. At times I wasn’t even sure, whether we are going to find out what really happened to Jamie.

A brilliant book, cleverly written and JUST WOW!!!!!
