A couple who broke up months ago pretend to still be together for their annual weeklong vacation with their best friends in this glittering and wise new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Emily Henry.

Harriet and Wyn have been the perfect couple since they met in college—they go together like salt and pepper, honey and tea, lobster and rolls. Except, now—for reasons they’re still not discussing—they don’t.
They broke up five months ago. And still haven’t told their best friends.
Which is how they find themselves sharing a bedroom at the Maine cottage that has been their friend group’s yearly getaway for the last decade. Their annual respite from the world, where for one vibrant, blissful week they leave behind their daily lives; have copious amounts of cheese, wine, and seafood; and soak up the salty coastal air with the people who understand them most.
Only this year, Harriet and Wyn are lying through their teeth while trying not to notice how desperately they still want each other. Because the cottage is for sale and this is the last week they’ll all have together in this place. They can’t stand to break their friends’ hearts, and so they’ll play their parts. Harriet will be the driven surgical resident who never starts a fight, and Wyn will be the laid-back charmer who never lets the cracks show. It’s a flawless plan (if you look at it from a great distance and through a pair of sunscreen-smeared sunglasses). After years of being in love, how hard can it be to fake it for one week…in front of those who know you best?

Good message

Good message - wasn’t my favorite. The love between Harriett and Wynn was established early on - the controversy was explained well but too much led up to it that I felt was unnecessary. I would have liked to know more about the friend/family group since they had so much history.

The book is honest and detoxifying.

This is what you need to do in order to get yourself free from someone else’s expectations - you step aside from the crowd and listen deeply to yourself.

My favorite book I’ve read so far this year!

This book 🙌🏼
I can’t say enough good things. I has a had friends tell me this emily Henry book wasn’t their favorite so I wasn’t sure what to expect (I have read all her other books) but I was so into this book right from the beginning. The story line, the characters, the emotion and detailed descriptions of the cottage. I couldn’t get enough. Highly recommend for a beach read or for a book club read. I loved it so much!!!
