Publisher Description

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Book Lovers and Beach Read comes a sparkling novel that will leave you with the warm, hazy afterglow usually reserved for the best vacations.

Two best friends. Ten summer trips. One last chance to fall in love.

Poppy and Alex. Alex and Poppy. They have nothing in common. She’s a wild child; he wears khakis. She has insatiable wanderlust; he prefers to stay home with a book. And somehow, ever since a fateful car share home from college many years ago, they are the very best of friends. For most of the year they live far apart—she’s in New York City, and he’s in their small hometown—but every summer, for a decade, they have taken one glorious week of vacation together.
 
Until two years ago, when they ruined everything. They haven't spoken since.
 
Poppy has everything she should want, but she’s stuck in a rut. When someone asks when she was last truly happy, she knows, without a doubt, it was on that ill-fated, final trip with Alex. And so, she decides to convince her best friend to take one more vacation together—lay everything on the table, make it all right. Miraculously, he agrees.
 
Now she has a week to fix everything. If only she can get around the one big truth that has always stood quietly in the middle of their seemingly perfect relationship. What could possibly go wrong?

Book funk over

A classic slow burn romance that will get you out of a reading funk and won’t have you putting it down till it’s over.. loved it

Adrierf ,

Beautiful story

A beautiful story peppered with flashbacks that show how the characters fell in love with each other in a slow burn. So well-written; heart-wrenching in all the best ways. New favourite book! 10/10

Well done Emily Henry!

I enjoyed this one. It has a very “When Harry met Sally” vibe but in the best way! It’s the fuller story rom com lovers have always wanted. The friendship and love between Poppy and Alex is beautiful and real. The brokeness of each character is heartening. The moral of the story was clear. The jokes were funny! I enjoyed Henry’s writing style and sentence structure. All that being said I did find the story to drag a little (now that might just be a me problem). 5/5 I understand why the internet recommended it.
