Just how reliable are psychics – specifically psychics hired by your sister for wedding entertainment?
When irrepressibly romantic Lucy Gray is ditched at said wedding by her date in front of her whole family, the promises of a psychic seem better than her pity-riddled reality. The psychic’s advice seems insightful: stop ignoring fate’s signs – fate will lead you to love. But when “fate” leads Lucy to London, she finds herself tangled in a web of lies. In a story about finding independence and taking chances, Lucy learns that leaving everything up to fate can be dangerous – and jeopardize her chances at happily ever after.
Title: Honeymoon Alone
Author: Nicole Macaulay
Publication Date: December 3, 2020
Publisher: 4b Pub
Genre: Adult, Romance, Contemporary
This was a fun and adventurous rom-com that even involved a bit of crime.
This book started out a little slow and was kinda odd in some aspects which is why I gave it lower stars. Even though our main character’s adventure started almost right at the beginning of the book, it felt like the action didn’t start until much later.
Something else that didn’t quite sit right with me was the crime/mystery aspect of this book. There is a bit of a mystery behind our main love interest, Oliver. We don’t really know much about him and he’s not super forthcoming. There is also mention of a criminal honeymooning couple during the book. The mentions feel kinda random. I didn’t really realize there was a mystery to “figure out” until 3/4 of the way through the book. I think the idea was great, it just wasn’t presented well.
As for some positives, I loved the different places we were able to explore with our main character Lucy. She is not a spontaneous person, but she was trying to be on this trip. We were able to learn a lot about her and her family and what it means to let go sometimes.
I also really liked the relationship between Oliver and Lucy towards the end of the book. They were constantly at odds with each other which is what made their relationship so fun and interesting.
Overall, this wasn’t my favorite rom-com, but I did enjoy it. Once you kinda get through the first half, the second half will be so much more enjoyable.
