Honeymoonby Amy Jenkins
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"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
"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
"[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
"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
"Sexy and fast-moving." Marie Claire
"Entertaining....Anyone who enjoys a romantic romp filled with chaos and confusion will gain pleasure from Honeymoon." Midwest Book Review
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.
