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?

  • Great Story…

    By Now that's a good book 13...
    I don’t often take the time to write book reviews, but that was fantastic. For me, it was one of those books that you love so well you get a little frustrated at the end when the ads come up for other books. You just aren’t quite ready to move on yet, or even consider other book characters. Clearly, I loved it.

    It always starts out as friends, doesn't it? Well..that's what they say. 😏 In Henry's second book, that seems to be the case: I love that Poppy (forgot her last name) and Alex Nilsen started out their relationship as friends; then I liked learning that their friendship turned out to be complicated when it is insinuated that they have romantic feelings for one another; and I enjoyed the slow-burn romance for sure as they got closer together---in the past and in the recent chapters. This book is one of my favorites. 😍😍😍😍❤️❤️❤️❤️

    I loved it🤍
  • A bit slow, but cute!

    By Kate36278
    I thought this was a cute story. I will admit, the first 200 pages were a bit slow. Lots of back and forth and it took awhile for the romance to start. I loved Alex and Poppy! I do think Book Lovers was better than PWMOV.
  • boring, not really interesting story line

    By pr-reader
    halfway through the book and there’s no feeling of a connection between them.
  • Predictable

    By Luvli5580
    Predictable from the Preface
  • Such a cute read

    By spinmomma25
    I’m a sucker for a good rom-com and this book made me laugh and made me teary-eyed. The characters were great and I loved that it wasn’t TOO slow of a read.
  • meh, be careful

    By learning.on.duo
    it was good until i got halfway through and then it started getting really dramatic and it wasn’t a lighthearted summer read anymore like it was in the beginning. so just a warning, be careful reading this!! it might not be all that it’s cracked up to be.
