I loved this book and I think teens would as well. ( )

I just completed reading Patterson’s 2005 International Thriller of the Year ‘Honeymoon’. Straight up the first chapter was such a put-off that I set the novel aside for several weeks.
Undercover FBI agent O’Hara is on two cases, one of which is a suspected ‘black widow’ killer and the other, well it seems to be more filler than anything and hardly germane to the main story. John gets too close to the black widow and falls under her spell long enough to get himself in a dicey fix. What I found so disappointing was that he (smart, street savy cop) almost dies by her hand in a manner consistent with her other victims, but for the sake of a story Patterson makes him dumb enough not to pick up on the attempted poisoning.
I have to admit that despite the disgusting opening, stereotypical characters and overly used plot devices I did find the novel an entertaining read, so I can see why this mass market, formulaic piece was successfully.

If you enjoy Patterson, you’ll enjoy ‘Honeymoon’. ( )

SUMMARY: From the author of The beach house and Kiss the girls comes a sizzling new thriller. When a number of rich men come to a mysterious end, and a young investment banker dies of a supposed heart attack, FBI agent John O'Hara believes it is the work of a cold-blooded killer. Turning his eye to the only witness - the young banker's beautiful and secretive widow - O'Hara thinks he's closing in, but he's not sure whether he's pursuing justice or his own fatal obsession. This compelling edge-of -your seat thriller reads like a collaboration with Alfred Hitchcock and keeps readers guessing until the last deadly kiss.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446613371, Mass Market Paperback)

Don't give away the ending... Don't give away the beginning. How does it feel to be desired by every man and envied by every woman? Wonderful. This is the life Nora Sinclair has worked hard for, the life she will never give up. She doesn't just attract men, she enthralls them. So why is FBI agent John O'Hara interested in Nora Sinclair? Mysterious things happen to people around her, especially the men. And there is something dangerous about Nora, something that lures O'Hara at the same time that it fills him with fear. Is something dark hidden in the gaps in her past? As O'Hara spends more and more time getting to know her, is he pursuing justice? Or his own fatal obsession?.
