Split into four parts, The Honeymoon tells the story of Jemma on the Honeymoon from hell. The story is easy to follow and mostly told from Jemma's perspective, although there are other points of view here and there.
Jemma is a rather unlikeable character, but as she is often described, there's something about her which drew me in and made me all the more invested in the story.
I loved the ending to part one and the beginning of part two. It was here that I realised how desperate I had become to find out what had happened between Jemma and her husband. Then the first twist hit me. Oh my goodness. It was such a brilliant twist. My jaw dropped open! Before this point, I hadn't found it too difficult to stop at each chapter but oh my word. I knew that I'd be staying up late to finish reading from then on! It was so cleverly written.
Finally I got to the last twist. Yet again, oh my word!! I never in a million years would've guessed! I was absolutely astonished! The only tiny criticism I have of the ending is that it ended a little too quickly for me. I just wanted a bit more of a conclusion I suppose.
After I closed the book, I must've sat motionless for a good few minutes, still taking in the ending and in absolute shock! I'd suspected every single person apart from the one who was the real cause of Jemma's husband going missing!
Overall, I'd give this book 4.5 out of 5. It's extremely cleverly written with a killer twist which left me reeling.
