THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! A TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON SUMMER READS NOMINEE! Named a Most Anticipated Book of 2021 by Newsweek ∙ Oprah Magazine ∙ The Skimm ∙ Marie Claire ∙ Parade ∙ The Wall Street Journal ∙ Chicago Tribune ∙ PopSugar ∙ BookPage ∙ BookBub ∙ Betches ∙ SheReads ∙ Good Housekeeping ∙ BuzzFeed ∙ Business Insider ∙ Real Simple ∙ Frolic ∙ and more! 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?

Henry’s latest rom-com lacks the spark of 2020’s Beach Read, but still offers plenty of lighthearted summertime fun. Poppy Wright met Alex Nilsen 12 years ago on the first day of college orientation, and they never got along—until a road trip from Chicago back to their neighboring Ohio towns, which sparked a deep friendship and a tradition of taking a yearly sumer vacation together. But Poppy and Alex haven’t spoken much since a disastrous trip two summers ago, and the details of what triggered their falling out are teased maddeningly slowly. When Poppy realizes that what she wants most in the world is to have Alex back in her life, she arranges a shoestring-budget vacation to Palm Springs that she hopes will fix everything. Flashbacks to each past summer trip make for fun travelogues that highlight both characters’ understandable but frustrating refusal to discuss their feelings. Watching them dance around the inevitable grows tiresome as things drag on, but Henry’s skills with sensory detail and lovable characters shine through. This is a strong choice for readers looking for a vicarious summer vacation of their own.

Another fun and cute read. Slow burn friends to lovers, which I did enjoy but had potential to be so much better… it became a little annoying towards the end 🫣 And the story itself dragged quite a bit but other than that it’s sweet romance story that’s perfect for summer reading.

Fun romance book. Though, I am REALLY triggered by the simplicity of the reason that they stopped talking, simple communication would have mad this book about 200 pages shorter. Would recommend this book though, if you're looking for an enjoyable, easy read 📚 😀

[Spoiler-Free] People We Meet On Vacation spoke to me. Poppy and her ex-best friend Alex Nilsen used to be close, in fact, that they would go on a vacation for around a week every single year, but that’s until one year where something changes. Throughout the book, it goes from 12 years ago all the way to 2 years ago and the present time. This book is a great slow burn novel, that is a great book to read during the summer, spring break, or just whenever.

No conflict, no goal in mind. Just two people who take a vacation each summer and slowly fall in love in each one and now must learn how to face those feelings. The humour, small moments and heartbreak were dealt with perfectly. I felt like i knew every inside joke about these two fictional, but very real, characters. Just brilliant

“What Henry is especially skilled at is writing dialogue. The banter between Poppy and Alex is so natural, quick and witty that it would make Shonda Rhimes do a slow clap.”
