    One Reply to “Honeymoon for One”

    1. For me this book is a great idea which didn't quite translate to the page as well as it should have. Lizzie goes to a couples only resort with a fake husband and then is accused of his subsequent murder. She's thrown into a cell, she escapes, finds a turtle, and goes on the lam.There are some really great comic moments in this book, but it never really captured my imagination. I didn't like the hero, he was a complete ass-hat. To be honest all the men in this book are brainless idiots. The heroi [...]

    2. Cute and crazuRated 3.5Lizzie really got herself in a bind. Not only was she dumped at the alter but got caught in a big mess just by going to her honeymoon alone. Instead of relaxing and trying to collect herself she ends up in jail. Oh boy, what a crazy vacation.

    3. 2.5 stars. I picked this to read because I needed something that was mindless and fun. Unfortunately Honeymoon for One was a little too mindless. The protagonist and her best friend were just so dumb at times. Lizzie didn't seem to have much backbone. She did whatever everyone else pressured her to do, except when they were actually giving her good advice and that didn't happen too often.

    4. I made it about a quarter of the way through this book and I'm telling you, it's hard. It's actually really funny and light. My problem is the main character. I have a hard time wanting to read about an adult making so many stupid mistakesover and over again. If I were her friend, I would want to shake some sense into her. Hasn't she learned anything in life? Doesn't she know what could happen? Doesn't she have a built is you-know-what meter? Obviously not, or we wouldn't be reading her cringe-w [...]

    5. I liked the way it was written. opening in the middle of the story, the first half is retrospective and the second half details how she gets out of her predicament. it was a bit confusing and by the tine I got to the bed, I didn't really care who killed Michael, I finished it last night and I know I read who killed him but couldn't tell you. to be honest, I can't believe anyone would be so stupid as to go for this in the first place,

    6. There were some funny moments in this book, but the heroine and I didn't get a long. She was silly - I like silly, but I also like a heroine to be smart. She had very dumb moments, to get a laughat didn't work for me.I also didn't love that she was left at the alter and a few days later is lusting after a beach boy. Jane, her best friend is a great character that I enjoyed. Stopped reading around 60%just wasn't for me.

    7. Hmm. I could have sworn I'd read something else by this author, but nothing's showing up as read. Odd, that. And after this one here, I find it likely that I probably won't be trying another. Well no matter - my fifteenth Chick Lit book, and first by this author. Previous chick lit book review says that one is the 13th and the ones before that seem to line up. But this is the 15th one I've marked read. Not sure where the miscounting started. From start to finish, I couldn't stand Lizzie Mancini. [...]

    8. As I have stated previously, I am on a mission to travel the world via books & movies this year. Belize is one of my favorite countries so when I stumbled upon this book I figured I would give it ago. Even though she was accused of murder and the story gets a little crazy this book is making me itch to get back to Belize.The second reason this book sucked me? That cover. I would much rather be doing that than working claims. Just Saying.The brief synopsis Lizzie was left at the alter but ins [...]

    9. After a five-year relationship and living together for two, Lizzy's fiancé decides to wait until the night before the wedding to tell her he's not the marrying kind. It had taken her weeks of research to find the best place to take their honeymoon. To drown her sorrow she decides she's still going to go and hopefully find herself an exciting one or two night-stand.But it's going to be awkward being the only single at the couples-only resort. So how incredible that a guy she meets in the airport [...]

    10. My only complaint is that the main character made a lot of stupid choices and didn't seem very concerned about things which should have set off alarm bells. I know that without her carelessness, there wouldn't have been a story but I still found them really frustrating. Fortunately, they were mainly confined to the beginning.Apart from that, I really enjoyed it. It was a well written, amusing and entertaining chick-lit cozy mystery with a good plot despite Lizzie's foolishness - or possibly beca [...]

    11. Follow the rules!!!This story is the exact reason why you should follow the rules at the airport. Don't talk to strange people, and don't leave your luggage unattended. I guess it was good that the main character was gullible or there would be no story. It was annoying to watch her struggle to prove her innocence, but also entertaining.

    12. 3 STARS!Hmmm, not sure what to say about this one, on a positive note it was an audiobook and I listened to the end of the book. The storyline was ok but it lacked something and for the life of me I can't think what. Hmmm.!

    13. I really liked "how I learned to love the walrus" so I grabbed this book. I kinda felt my brain cells leaking out of my ears. Thankfully it was a quick read and mildly entertaining.

    14. WonderfulIt's been so long since I've read a such a fun book. I wish I had more time to elaborate. It's a murder mystery gone completely askew. I didn't read the reviews before getting this book. In so many ways, that made this book even better. I had no idea what to expect. Every bit of the book was a complete surprise. A wonderful getaway and a great summer read. I'll be looking for more books by Beth Orsoff. Bravo!

    15. Nice light readSometimes I’m in the mood for a story that has humor and a mystery running through it. This was a fun book.

    16. I started this book 2 years ago - and i kept getting bored and stopping - But I decided to give it a chance and read it to the end - I shouldn't have bothered! Seriously NOT good

    20. Unlike some people it seems, I can kind of see some women being taken in by and trusting perfect strangers they meet at airports who seem really friendly and genuine. The fact is that is does happen all the time, whether it is something small like watching their luggage/allowing them to carry yours, to agreeing to knowingly transport drugs for the right price in an ill-judged snap-second decision. Or, perhaps less frequently, a scenario like this where two people agree to pose as one another's p [...]

    21. Every Bride's NightmareWhat do you get when you combine a dumped-at-the-altar bride-to-be, determined to take her dream honeymoon, an airplane seat mate eager to pose as her husband at the couples resort, a hunky Brad Pitt lookalike who inspires instant lust, and a foreign country where said bride can't speak the language?You get Honeymoon for One, a delightful blend of mystery, humor, and BFF relationships with a dash of romance tossed in for good measure. This droll mystery, highlighted by a s [...]

    22.

But that was before she knew she’d be honeymooning sans groom. Touring alone, dining alone, and worst of all, having to explain to the resort’s thirty other guests why she was staying in the bridal suite alone—Lizzie was dreading it. But it still beat the alternative, eight more day [...]

    23. Going on your honeymoon alone to a foreign vacation spot can be deadly. Lizzie just wanted to veg out and maybe have a couple of one night stands to forget her ex-fiance, however a meetup at the airport with a determined to Michael Garcia, who insists upon insinuating himself into her plans should have been a red flag. After agreeing to let him pretend to be her husband with stipulations, Lizzie breezily attempts to carry out her plans, however when Micheal's body turns up on the beach, fingers [...]

    24. I love the characters, especially between Lizzie and Janewhat friends won't do for one another at times! :) The story line was well written, just seemed a bit far-fetched. I don't know of too many women that would meet a guy in the airport and decide to allow him to become her 'fake' husband because she was basically left at the alter by her fiance, and then go to another country for a vacation! It was a good adventure to read though, a diving guy that Lizzie falls for and then she is trying to [...]

    25. Poor Lizzie! She really didn't ask for much, but making one bad decision after another landed in the middle of a huge mess! Things just went totally out of control. Her story drew me in and kept me reading late into the night/early morning wanting to see what would go wrong next.Lizzie's rich BFF, Jane, was a hoot! Everyone needs a friend like her. Beth has written a wonderfully entertaining story that is full of mystery and conspiracy theories. One of my favorite characters was Fred! Who doesn' [...]

    26. Fun cozy mystery. Breezy aswell, the tropical breezes that blow through the heroine's honeymoon for one in Belize. After she's dumped by her fiance the day before the wedding, Lizzie decides not to forfeit the vacation. So instead of a hot, naked body next to her in bed, she's left explaining to authorities about the dead body of the man who was pretending to be her husband so she wouldn't be the only single at a couples resort. Enter sexy marine biologist, Jack, and best friend Jane, who flies [...]

    27. SERIOUSLY, LIZZIE?, When LA journalist, Lizzie Mancini's wedding is suddenly cancelled, she decides to take her carefully planned honeymoon to Camus Caye anyway. Her adventures start at the airport bar when she befriends a gold chain wearing antiquities dealer. This starts a series of unfortunate events, which had me wanting to slap Lizzie (often). SERIOUSLY, LIZZIE? Once I got past my urges to smack a purely fictional character and went with the story, I thoroughly enjoyed this delightful novel [...]

    28. Picked this up as a fun easy read. It was funny and enjoyable. Once the plot was revealed it was over pretty quickly which I really liked. No need to explain anything and drag it on.Really liked the characters, comical and engaging.The substance to it wasn't rivetting and mind boggling, so that's why I have awarded it 3 stars. Easy read, would recommend to anyone looking to real something relaxing and fun.I'd compare this to stories by Stephanie Bond, I thought they were pretty similar and both [...]
