As the story unfolds, the crime proves to be the tip of the iceberg. An intricate web of deceit is unearthed and ends on a shocking note.
Having never read any of its predecessors, I was worried that I would not be able to connect the dots in terms of past character development.
I'm happy to state that I was wrong.
There was no moment that I felt out of touch with the characters or confused about any past references. Killer Honeymoon stands well on its own merits as a humorous and romantic murder-mystery. A thoroughly entertaining novel.
