Our Review

“I don’t know how to love someone as much as I love you.”

Stop what you’re doing and grab this book!!! You will love it! Our hearts are overflowing with love –we could sit and re-read this book all over again. It was beautiful, magical, funny, sincere, and written to perfection! People We Meet on Vacation is, without a doubt, one of the best friends to lovers romances we’ve ever read. Not only that, it’s one of our top reads this year. Absolutely bloody brilliant! A funny and heartfelt emotion fest. You’ll need tissues!

“You won’t lose me.” He says. “As long as you want me, I’m here.”

Responsible for one of our favourites last year with Beach Read, Emily Henry has solidified herself as a 1Click author to us. In fact, we’re already stalking her to see what she’s up to next!

‘I want him to remember. I want every moment to matter as much to him as it has to me.’

From start to finish, this book wowed us. We never wavered in our love for the characters and the story. The banter was on point – we were constantly giggling and grinning like fools. Alex’s sense of humour was so dry – half the time he was witty without even realising it. Poppy, his snarky funny as hell bestie, kept us on our toes and in fits with her sharp humour.

The chemistry, the characters, the joy, the sadness, and the ever-flowing emotions hit every part of our hearts. We loved it all! Everything about this story worked on every level. When done right, the friends to lovers’ trope is all-consuming. When you experience the undercurrent of feelings between two people teetering on the brink of taking a chance at love or remaining friends, you are taken through a gamut of emotions, and Emily Henry nailed it magnificently!

“…sometimes, when you lose your happiness, it’s best to look for it the same way you’d look for anything else.”

Told over twelve years, we are there as a friendship develops between the sweet and stoic Alex Nilsen and the forthright and flighty Poppy Wright. Despite being chalk and cheese Alex and Poppy become best friends. We then spend every summer with them as they navigate their lives through many ups and downs. Broken hearts, insecurities – all their highlights and lowlights were laid bare. We laughed, we cried, and we fell completely in love with their friendship.

‘He is tall, quiet, and eager to see the library. I’m short, loud, and hoping someone comes by and invites us to a real party.’

Alex was a contradiction who completely stole our hearts. A character such as Alex is quite difficult to write – there is a fine line between making him a pushover against Poppy’s strong personality or a little belligerent, but Emily Henry wrote him to perfection! Just wait until you meet Alex! He’s definitely on the list of top book boyfriends!

‘Years of undying love, occasional jealousy, missed opportunities, bad timing, other relationships, building sexual tension, a fight and the silence afterward, and the pain of living life without him.’

Somewhere along the lines, their friendship fell apart two years previously whilst on a vacation in Croatia. What happened to put such a strain on their friendship that they would go nearly two years without communicating? We switch from past to present as the story builds to that moment.

“I don’t think I knew I was lonely until I met you.”

Just how do we tell you how special this book is? It’s complex and layered – it’s everything you could ask for in a romance. All we can do is tell you to grab this book and find out for yourself. We’re confident your heart will be bursting with love and it will become a favourite for you too!

Synopsis

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

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?

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