On the rugged, wild, eastern shore of Barbados, Cindy and Clint are enjoying their dream honeymoon, when paradise quickly turns into hell. Cindy finds her newly beloved taken away from her, drowned in a freak accident in the ocean. The local police are quick to declare it an accident, to insist that he was caught in a sudden riptide. But Cindy, left all alone, is not convinced.

Cindy must return to her and Clint's now-empty home in New York and face her in-laws, who never wanted Clint to marry her, and who did everything to make her engagement and wedding hell. She must deal with all of these women's backbiting, gossiping and unspoken accusations, while she tries to get a handle on her own grief and to get clear on what really happened to Clint.

Cindy is mailed an anonymous photo of a woman she had never met, addressed to Clint. As she tries to unravel the mysterious package, as she begins to dig deeper into Clint's emails and files, she realizes how many secrets Clint had been hiding from his past. She realizes that she didn't really know the man she loved. And she also realizes that Clint was murdered.

She digs deeper, into the depths of Clint's massive corporation, DGB oil, and as she starts to unearth information she shouldn't, she goes too far. Soon her own life is in peril. On the run, she realizes that the only way to get answers, and to save her own life, is to return to where it all began: Barbados. As she heads into the dark underside of the island, into the heart of the local villages, she is shocked to discover what really happened to her husband on their honeymoon.

But by then, it may already be too late.

This is the first book I have read by this author, and I liked her book and style of writing. The characters were good as was the story line. Although, the story was a bit predictable. As I read along I had a pretty good idea who was behind the cover up and the murder of the husband. I will definitely read another book by this author. It makes for a good afternoon read. It's a fast paced book and before you know it you will be reading the last chapter.

Death by Honeymoon by Jaden Skye packs a punch. This novel is short in length but contains good writing, a great story line, and interesting characters. The premise is that Cindy's husband Clint dies under tragic yet mysterious circumstances during their honeymoon on Barbados. Cindy is bereft over Clint's death and eventually comes to believe that his accidental death was anything but accidental. Of course no one believes her, including her sister Ann. Until Ann drives Cindy's car to run errands and finds that the brakes don't work. If things aren't bad enough Cindy has to contend with in-laws that are blaming her for husband's death. Cindy isn't willing to back down from her theories and launches her own investigation into Clint's death and returns to Barbados. Was Clint's murder related to his job? What could possibly have been so important to kill for? Will Cindy find the answers before she becomes the next victim? Cindy may have spent the first three weeks after Clint's death moping and grieving but she makes up for lost time. Death by Honeymoon makes a perfect weekend read for anyone interested in a quick-read suspense story.

It's not the best mystery book ever written, but it kept me entertained. It's predictable in sections, and a little cliche at times, but somehow I kept reading it. It's a quick easy read perfect for a weekend.

This book from Jaden Skye was and ok read for me. Took me about 5 days of very short reading sessions to get into the book. Took a while for the story to really start to unfold, but once I got about 3/4 of the way through it really kicked in.

The book started out good and quickly became predictable and the lack of plot development was an issue. The main character is wishy-washy and jumps from one conclusion to the next without a real reason for it. The story needed better development.

Very juvenile and not fleshed out at all. No mystery whatsoever. There was no character development and the book was lackluster at best. Dont waste your money or time!

Death by Honeymoon by Jaden Skye is a mystery about love and loss. Cindy and Clint finally have what they want; married and ready to start their lives together, much to the disappointment of his family and friends. Heading to Barbados for their dream honeymoon, Cindy wants nothing more then to enjoy her husband's company. So when Cindy suddenly falls ill and stays in the room for a nap, the last thing she expected was to never see her husband again.Several weeks after Cindy is left widowed, she starts trying to make peace with what has happened and move on. But while going through some of Clint's belongings she realizes that not everything is what it appeared. She knows that what happened to Clint was not an accident and she has to solve the mystery before she meets the same fate.Death by Honeymoon starts out well. I felt for Cindy and the pain that she was going through. Her heartache and actions were believable. As the story progressed, I found the emotion weakening and the story shifted into a somewhat predictable pattern. I felt as though the truth came out and was accepted a little to easily by all parties involved. Though I am curious to see if the author's writing style has evolved for book two in this series, I probably won't be in a rush to read it.If you are looking for a quick and easy mystery that contains little suspense, consider giving Death by Honeymoon a try. Even though I found this to be just an okay story, you may feel differently and enjoy it.

Death by Honeymoon by Jaden Skye is a light mystery, full of love and longing, with scenes from the beautiful island of Barbados. She does a great job of building a love story, and then takes us to the shattered life of Cindy, a young woman now looking for answers.On the beautiful West side of Barbados, Cindy and Clint cement their love, their honeymoon is in just the perfect spot. The West side of the island so infrequently used by tourists is the very draw, Clint is an experienced surfer, and this area is known for its waves. The beauty and the companionship are everything Cindy always wanted. Even with the difficulties from Clint¿s family, their marriage still went through as planned. Here in this beautiful and enchanted place their love just continued to grow. Cindy has trusted Clint more than she has trusted anyone. She understands that no matter what, he would be there for her. As their honeymoon draws to a close, she is sad, only a few more days and they would again face the real world with its challenges from both Clint¿s family and his job. But until then she would enjoy every minute. A beautiful lunch and then more surfing is set for the day, but when Cindy takes suddenly ill and becomes extremely tired, she assures Clint that she will only take a small nap, and meet him on the beach in an hour. When Cindy finally wakes, she finds that several hours have passed, and as she goes searching for Clint, she cannot find him. Panic sets in and alarm sets her nerves on edge. She knows something is wrong Clint would never disappear. When his body is found in the surf, her life begins to fall apart. Cindy is unable to understand how this could have happened, his parents suspect her of some nefarious deeds, which cuts her to the quick. She is unable to operate on her own, unable to leave her room or even talk to Clint¿s friends. Her Sister Ann is there for her. In her grief, Cindy¿s mind takes some strange turns, and she is even now convinced that Clint was murdered. With nothing to go on, she finally finds something to believe in again. Going through his files, she begins to question everything she knew about him. Returning emails to his friends and asking questions, she is nonetheless surprised when the brakes on her car fail, and her sister is almost killed. The police find the brakes tampered with but have nothing further to go on.Not knowing where to go for help, she finally determines that the FBI would be the only safe place to start. Without evidence, they are unable and unwilling to help her. She must go back to the very place it all began, Barbados. Cindy seems so clingy and helpless in much of the prose although she strengthens her resolve towards the end. She operates on gut instinct and bullheadedness, and stays the course following her beliefs. When vindicated and she begins to find the clues to the mystery, she puts her own and her sister¿s life at risk. Yet she is determined to find the answers. She begins the story with no self confidence and is more self reliant at the end.This is a light read full of mystery and longing. The romance is wonderful, and the story quite interesting. If you enjoy a light mystery, and romance, with a bit of sadness this is the read. The story is written well and moves along at a quick pace. This book was received as a free download from the author. All opinions are my own based off my reading and understanding of the material.

Not much.

If all of us were as tenacious as the bride no crime would ever be called accidental. It is hard sometimes to believe someone but sometimes the benefits the doubt is a good thing.

Juvenile writing. Boring. Made it to page 32 where I suddenly realized they were at the funeral. Huh? That's it for me.
