Honeymoon is about a girl who never wanted to get married. And now she is.
'Honey has doubts about her nice suitable man, she has doubts about commitment. And she still carries a torch for the man she calls the Love Of Her Life. Alex, someone she spent only one night with, seven years ago now. A perfect night. A night that makes her soul glow when she tells the story. A soul mate night.'
Seven years on, with the memory of THAT night relegated to the realms of pure fantasy, Honey marries Ed, her nice suitable man, and unbeknown to her on the other side of the Atlantic, Alex marries another woman.
As fate would have it, Honey and Alex do meet again. But what happens if they meet completely by coincidence, on a balcony in New York - even if they are both on their respective honeymoons
The hottest property in town. You can feel success rising off her like steam - Evening Standard
Will certainly have Hollywood's studios clamouring for the film rights - Observer
HONEYMOON is simply wonderful - so powerful and funny and compelling, and without a trace of dizzy fizzy saccharine. Makes me want to follow Amy Jenkins around bribing her with sweets to be my friend. It's an eye-wetting read and makes SEPARATE TABLES look like two footstools. Will recommend it to all. - Fiona Walker
Amy Jenkins' tale of a smart single girl screwing up the search for her perfect mate is the latest in this genre. As the best it should also be the last - wacky in its proposition on What If You Meet The Man Of Your Dreams On Your Honeymoon? and - post-multiple mishaps - wise on the whos, the hows and the must-haves of love for life. - Madeleine Kingsley
There seems to be a bottomless market at the moment for witty clever stories about girls finding husbands, social-life fiction. If that's what you want, what you're in the mood for, stop right here: this is the one for you. Amy Jenkins does witty and clever a great deal better than most. - Independent
Filmic, sexy and fast-moving, it will go straight into the bestseller lists. Who are her fans? Just about every twenty and thirtysomething of either sex currently residing in Great Britain. - Marie Claire
