I came here looking for some kind of happiness. I think it might have been the cleverest thing I have ever done.

One difficult winter when her love life falls apart (and so does she), Jen decides on Three Gifts to Self. Gifts One and Two are reducing her workload and staying away from relationships for a while. Gift Three, the most important, is a month alone on a tiny, wild Greek island. It’s a chance to find another kind of happiness; one that comes from the sun and the sea, from the aroma of herbs on the mountains and holding an octopus in your hands.

She decides to act on her dreams of staying for longer – because life is too short not to reach out for what makes us happy. But just when everything is falling into place again, the strangest thing happens…

Falling in Honey is a mouth-watering mix of comedy and romance, and an unforgettable journey from heartbreak to happiness.
