Summary via A walk down the aisle, a resort hotel, a drink on the beach...for these unlucky couples, the honeymoon's over. 
A newlywed couple steps into the sauna in their deluxe honeymoon suite--and never steps out again. When another couple is killed while boarding their honeymoon flight to Rome, it becomes clear that someone is targeting honeymooners, and it's anyone's guess which happy couple is next on the list.

FBI Agent John O'Hara is deep into solving the case, while Special Agent Sarah Brubaker is hunting another ingenious serial killer, whose victims all have one chilling thing in common.

As wedding hysteria rises to a frightening new level, John and Sarah work ever more closely together in a frantic attempt to decipher the logic behind two rampages. SECOND HONEYMOON is James Patterson's most mesmerizing, most exciting, and most surprising thriller ever.
This book jumped into the excitement right off the bat, starting out with the first murder.  Tying in with murders of anyone with the name John O'Hara. The two situations are running at the same time while Agent Brubaker and Agent O'Hara race to solve them.

I had a hard time separating what exactly was going on with these murder situations. I wasn't sure if  they thought the same person targeting John O'Hara's was also killing the couples on their honeymoon. I don't know if was supposed to know this or if it was something that wasn't divulged until the end. There were also a couple of times where I was sure Agent O'Hara had been killed, only to see that he was still alive. I wasn't sure if I was confused or if I had missed something or what.

Aside from that, this was a great book. I love mystery, thrills, suspense and all that is involved in a murder mystery story. This book was kind of slow moving, but for me it was great. It gave me a chance to mostly digest all that I was reading as I went along. It was also exciting and  suspenseful enough that I had a hard time putting it down.

I gave this book 4 stars. James Patterson is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.
