Honeymoon by James Patterson and Howard Roughan
Right up front I'll say that this is one of James Patterson's better books. Honeymoon was both horrifying and intriguing. While I wanted to know a little more about what drove Nora to be the way she was, I was still satisfied with the ending.
The story begins with Nora juggling a husband and fiance. Through crafty computer skills and a little bit of luck, she manages to get wealthy off of these men, which in turns makes them expendable. Nora has little regret as she ends their lives. The story is also told from the perspective of John O'Hara, an FBI agent who is suspicious of Nora. Despite his job and his knowledge of the woman, he becomes too close.
I liked both the characters! I know I'm not supposed to like a murderer but she was so matter of fact about it all. I couldn't help but want to know what she would do next. John was smart and sarcastic, which to me means he was quite lovable. It was a quick and easy read that kept me reading to the end.
