Audio Book Summary

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?

    I regret this choice. Such a one-dimensional, lackluster rom com that I neither laughed at nor found romantic. Would not recommend.

    Loved it! Quick read. I recommended it to a friend and she loved it too! Hallmark vibes with a little spice.

    I would have loved this book if I were a 12 year old girl. So predictable. So boring. So uneventful. I kept hoping something interesting would happen but it didn't. I have started a list of authors never to read again. Emily Henry is the first entry on my list.

    This book was so disappointing. So predictable, and the heroine was whining and unlikable the entire time. I’d like my purchase credit (and time) back, please.

    Her stomach is in her heart. Her stomach is a heavy wall. Her stomach is a flutter. Just what is it with this woman’s stomach? I was bored on their vacation so skipped to the last chapter. No surprise there.
