Back cover blurb: Two happy couples. One dead body. A whole load of secrets. Married life wasn't meant to start like this... On honeymoon in Bali, you hit it off with another newlywed couple and celebrate your last night at a fancy cliff-side restaurant. No one predicted the evening would end with a dead body. But it was an accident, right? A tragic accident. The honeymoon may be over but it soon becomes clear that there's another side to this story . . . and your life depends on uncovering it. Many marriages can survive anything – but when it starts on a lie is it really 'til death do us part?
The Honeymoon is a gripping and twisty thriller that will have you guessing right until its conclusion.
Erin and Sophie are unlikely friends, they meet poolside on the final day of their respective honeymoons. Their paths would be unlikely to cross on any normal day.
Erin and her husband are booked into an exclusive restaurant for their final evening and on a whim Erin extends an invitation to Sophie and her new husband to join them for dinner.
The four are having a wonderful evening until a stranger passes by their table and inadvertently sets their night on a completely different path.
Although the night is not yet ruined, the atmosphere has changed, and the two couples say their 'goodnights' fairly quickly after that.
When a man is found dead at the bottom of a cliff the following morning the new friends wonder if he died by accident, or if he was murdered?
Told from different characters perspectives, you are never quite sure who to trust. None of them are particularly likeable, which I think is deliberate!
It makes it even harder to know who who to believe. Particularly when each one of them has something from their past that they're trying to hide, but the truth always prevails.
The Honeymoon is available now via Amazon online and all good book shops.
