I am not a romance reader, so I appreciate that Emily’s stories are STORIES first, with romance layered in. A friend recommended these to me, because she thought I’d appreciate how these stories are actually FUNNY. The protagonists are smart, funny women – instead of how so many authors think that they they are writing funny dialogue, but it’s stilted and affected.
I read this in less than a day – quick, easy, fun read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Never go to Palm Springs in the summer…

Poppy Wright has always been a restless soul. She wanted to experience everything the world had to offer. As long as it was far, far away from her hometown of Linfield, Ohio.
So as fate would have it, on her very first day of college, she meets the boy who is not only going to show her what the word “home” really means – he’s also going to redefine everything she knows about love.
Alex Nilsen has been painfully responsible from a very young age. After losing his mother, he stepped in as the caregiver for both his distraught father and his younger siblings.
His life is planned. Go to college. Come back to Linfield. Get a job. Have a family. Live happily ever after. He never counted on a best friend like Poppy – with her outlandish clothes and ceaseless wanderlust – to wedge herself so deep in his heart that he can’t imagine his life without her.
When the line of friendship crosses into something much more, will they risk everything to make love last long after vacation is over?
I’ve been a fan of Emily Henry ever since being swept away by A Million Junes. With each subsequent new release, I was left thinking that there was no way that she could top it. Well, with People We Meet on Vacation, she has proved me wrong in the very best way!
Her characters are uniquely complex. Poppy shines with her wicked sense of humor and heartbreaking insecurity. While Alex smolders with his quiet strength and longing. They made me giggle, made me swoon and made me never want to visit Palm Springs in the summer.
It’s the vacation that I never wanted to end because I loved every moment of it…
Favorite quote – “Maybe things can always get better between people who want to do a good job loving each other. Maybe that’s all it takes.”
