"An excellent follow-up to BEACH READ, the latest Emily Henry is scorching hot. Perfectly paced with sexual tension sweating from every page, I couldn’t put it down. The characters stand wonderfully on their own, funny and clever, and in any author’s hands, the book would have been delightful. But Henry’s masterful use of romance genre tropes at exactly the right time cranks up the heat to make this book feel like a tall glass of cold water on a midsummer day."— Rachel R.
“What fun! This delightful book should be in every beach bag this summer. A hilariously comedic rom-com with memorable characters, set in varied vacation spots in various years. I enjoyed the changing timeline and seeing the relationship as it grew through the years.”

Poppy and Alex. Alex and Poppy. They have nothing in common. And somehow, they are the best of friends. For most of the year they live far apart, but every summer, for a decade, they have taken one glorious week of vacation together. Until two years ago, when they ruined everything. When someone asks when Poppy was last truly happy, she knows it was on that ill-fated trip with Alex. So, she decides to convince him to take one more vacation together. Miraculously, he agrees. Now she has a week to fix everything. If only she can get around the one truth that has always stood in the middle of their seemingly perfect relationship. What could possibly go wrong?
