This was more like People We Meet on Vacation than it was Book Lovers or Beach Read, so it’s not my super fave. But I love Emily Henry’s style so this still gets four stars.
This is a second chance romance where most of the characters are unaware our main pair has even broken up. Their very close friend group does a shared vacation every year at a sentimental place, and because this is the last year they’ll be able to go there (one friend’s family is selling it) and because something special is happening while they’re there, our MCs Harriet and Wynn decide to pretend that they never broke up at all to avoid introducing conflict and drama into their stay, which of course leads them to fixing what went wrong in the first place.
Since it has now been four months since I read this, I’m definitely sure of my four star rating, because this has turned out to be the least memorable and sticky of all EH’s adult romances for me. I liked the characters and I liked the plot and had a good time while reading, but it will never be my go-to comfort read. There is quite a bit of angst (justified and not) in these pages, before our characters are able to figure things out.
I never forgot I was reading a book with this one.
I am, however, BEYOND excited for next one.
