Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alex is the love of Honey's life, the man that got away ? until, within hours of their respective weddings (his to Cherelle, hers to Ed), they find themselves honeymooning at the same Mexican resort...with hilarious and heart-wrenching consequences for all.

Review:

"Jenkins has created a complex character in Honey, a woman who is torn between fairy-tale ideals and real-life romance and drolly questions the modern ? and often terribly unsatisfactory ? quest for a lifetime partner who must be the embodiment of perfection." Kristin Kloberdanz, Booklist

Review:

"It must have sounded like a great idea when TV/screenwriter Jenkins pitched it...but it falls flat because there's nothing to support the juicy central concept: no logical lead-in, no compelling complications to follow, just Honey's adorably vapid chatter...and a thousand warmed-over digressions....For every line that snaps...a dozen go limp." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"[Honey] stands on her own two feet as a strong comic heroine....Despite constant self-deprecation, Honey is more maturely self-aware and intellectually brighter than previous literary creations within this genre....Jenkins sets the stage for a conclusion to this romantic quagmire that's anything but predictable." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Honeymoon is first-time novelist Amy Jenkins's wry tale of finding true love at the most inconvenient time. A fast-paced, raucous romp of miscommunications and misadventures..." Katherine Dykstra, Redbook

Review:

"Sexy and fast-moving." Marie Claire

Review:

"Entertaining....Anyone who enjoys a romantic romp filled with chaos and confusion will gain pleasure from Honeymoon." Midwest Book Review

Synopsis:

In this ultracontemporary romantic comedy, two former lovers meet within hours of their respective weddings as they honeymoon at the same Mexican resort with hilarious and heart-wrenching consequences for all.
