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.

    It took a minute to adjust to the narration. She also narrated The Invisible Life of Addie Larue. Once I was able to move past it, I enjoyed the book. Turned out exactly as I predicted but sometimes you need a beautiful bow at the end.

    This book really exceeded my expectations. I guess I expected a typical rom com story, but was pleasantly surprised by how multifaceted the story actually became.

    I’m a fan of Emily Henry! This is my second book of hers and I just loooove her romances. I love how she writes the men characters, the women characters are cool too but she really makes me fall in love with these men and I think men are trash! Can’t wait to read her other books.
