1. Do you believe that there will only ever be one love of your life?
2. Did you think the various settings of the book - London, New York, the Caribbean islands - contributed to Honey's final decision about the outcome of her love life?
3. Can old-fashioned romance still exist now that people such as Honey and her friends rely so much on email and cell phones instead of waiting for love letters to arrive in the mail? Do you think Honey would have still had the same ending to her story without these things?
4. Would Honey have made the same choices without the aid of her sister? How has your family gotten in the way of one of your romances or, alternatively, moved one right along?
5. Do you think it's possible to be in love with two people at the very same time?
6. Did Honey made the right choice? Do you think she will have regrets? What would you have done if you were Honey?
7. Is there a point in your life when it's time to discard fantasy romances? How much of Honey's ultimate choice was about a fantasy? How much of it was about a particular time in her life where she felt the need to make a major decision?
8. Was Honey's final decision a compromise? Can you influence your own destiny when it comes to love?

"Sexy and fast-moving."
"An amusing page-turner....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."
"Entertaining....Anyone who enjoys a romantic romp filled with chaos and confusion will gain pleasure from HONEYMOON."
