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?
Spoiler Free Review
People We Meet on Vacation is the story of Poppy Wright and Alex Nilsen, two best friends that two years ago, had a falling out. Now Poppy wants to fix their relationship and in one week, win back her best friend.
Alex and Poppy have always been opposites. While Poppy loves to travel, is carefree, and a wild child, Alex would rather sit with a good book at home. But, even though they are total opposites and quite frankly have nothing in common, they are the very best of friends.
People We Meet on Vacation brought me nothing but joy while reading and I gave this five stars. Emily Henry continues to surprise me after reading Beach Read and falling in love with that book and I felt that I wanted People We Meet on Vacation to deliver the same array of emotions that Beach Read gave me. And it did. The happiness and sadness I felt through People We Meet on Vacation was so strong when reading about Poppy and Alex. Their friendship was amazing and you can tell that even though you are polar opposites, you really can be best friends.
And oh my, the love between Alex and Poppy was strong. They have been best friends for years and the way they pine for each other even though they think that their love is unrequited was unbelievable. It has always just been the two of them and you can tell that their love is so strong. Even though their relationship was rather unrequited in the beginning, their love for each other, even in friendship was so strong. I idolize them even just as friends. They were perfect with each other and honestly for each other.
People We Meet on Vacation talks about two people who were lonely, but found each other and were no longer alone. This book could not be any more perfect and urge everyone to pick this up. And if you have the chance, pick up Beach Read as well.
