Two best friends. Ten summer trips. One last chance to fall in love.

From the
New York Times bestselling author of Beach Read comes a sparkling new novel that will leave you with the warm, hazy afterglow usually reserved for the best vacations.  

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?


  • Fell in love with reading again

    By Anniebananie!!!!
    LOVE this book. It’s the kind of book that you’re sad to finish because you fall so in love with the characters. Just loved it so much.
  • Cute summer read

    By Dree16
    It’s a cute beach / summer read although Poppy drove me nuts towards the end.
  • LOVED IT! 💗

    I have read A LOT of romance novels in my time, but NONE quite like this one. Alex and Poppy are absolutely adorable, and everything you can hope for out of two main characters. I would suggest this book over and over again! SO GOOD! I will be buying this and sending it to a good friend of mine as a gift because I know she will love it, too! This book made it to my top 10 of all time, and as mentioned before I’ve read a lot of romance novels. Like.. hundreds. I guess I should also mention, I read this in one days time. I could not put it down, and even skipped on cooking dinner. Sorry family! 😅
  • It’s ok. And obvious.

    By Lwauman
    It’s a good beach read, but overly saccharine and obvious.
  • Cute love story

    By ChuckBass10
    Fun and light read in which you’re rooting for the characters.
  • A slow burn but so good!

    By bridge2mer
    This book was a slow burn but it was so good and made me laugh out loud multiple times. They don’t make romcoms like they used to but at least these books exist which are just as good in my opinion!

  • For “Beach Read” Fans

    By gaskinsmn
    If you are interested in buying this book because you adored Beach Read, I am so sorry to disappoint. Whatever je ne sais quoi Emily Henry’s Beach Read had was lost before the writing of this novel. Somewhere beneath the cluttered storyline and less than glittering dialogue exists a good story here but if you were hoping to be pulled in and completely enveloped by the story the way you were by Beach Read, this book is not for you.
  • Too slow
