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?

  • Not good

    By K_G419
    this book would be good for maybe high schoolers.
  • Wouldn’t download

    By jmele987
    It wouldn’t download after the sample. Technically, I would love to read this. Was great!
  • Hard Pass - it’s a weak read

    By barbara annelise
    Awful. Extremely redundant, as if the author needed to hit a word minimum. Trying way to hard to be “hip”.
  • People we meet on vacation

    By karekarecoco
    Too predictable
  • Good enough

    By easiest reader
    Good enough book but her other book, Book Lovers, is much better!
  • A very good love story

    By Arnies volunteer

  • slow burn,,,but so freakin worth it.

    By Phi <3
    This is the first book i have ever read by Emily Henry, and let me tell you not the freakin last. I have only read a couple of books where the author is able to transport you inside the characters lives so perfectly ( I’ll give you the sun , evelyn Hugo ). Emily Henry was able to make me dream about these characters, anticipating every next chapter, ever next moment with these characters lives. By the end we’re shown how our unsaid words, and feelings can plague our time and happiness with someone who’s worth it in the end. Also we definitely have an opposite trope in this, and who just doesn’t love reading about our missing puzzle piece in this world. 💗
  • 👎 Poppy

    By Susievon
    I didn’t really like poppy and sure Alex seems like a great guy but I don’t feel like they are a match
  • 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.
