People We Meet on Vacation Summary

People We Meet on Vacation - From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Book Lovers and Beach Read comes a sparkling novel that will leave you with the warm, hazy afterglow usually reserved for the best vacations.

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?

People We Meet on Vacation Review

  • Unexpectedly good

    By DrellieB
    I decided to read it on a whim. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Good break from my usual M&M. Recommend for light-hearted romance.
  • Boring

    By chicago vacation lover
    Really boring. I kept going back trying to read it thinking it would pick up, but only got to page 164. I finally gave up.
  • Speechless

    By 34 thunder
    So good, I loved the slow burn romance that it had and every chapter kept me enthralled for more. Perfect as a beach read or an anywhere-anytime read. I love the authors artistry and she has created a masterclass in slow burn. I love this book.
  • Sweet

    By Whitmben
    Had to round up to 4 because it had me laughing out loud numerous times.
  • Witty & cute

    By Maddiebbmama
    It took me probably about 100 or so pages to get into it. But once I did, I couldn’t put it down.
  • Wow. No words.

    Wow, wow, wow. This book has my whole heart. I fell in LOVE with the characters. The build up of Alex and Poppy’s friendship is what made me fall in love with this book. It was such a fun read. I was so interested in each summer trip, and the platonic relationship they had, and then it becoming a relationship-relationship. I felt like I was truly experiencing their friendship moments WITH THEM. It’s like whenever you have a funny moment with your friend(s), and you wish you had a TV show to rewatch it. That’s what it felt like. My new FAVORITE BOOK, and I’ve read a LOT of books. Read. it. now.
  • Very Fun!

    By Pink9836
    So cute and fun!!! Predictable but worth the ride! ❤️
  • This book was like a warm hug

    By purpellie
    I LOVED this book! It wasn’t just about love, it was also about growing up and navigating the world. As a person in their 20s, I also found myself feeling lost or constantly running from my problems. This book allows the reader to fully process their own emotions through the eyes of Poppy & Alex. So beautiful.
  • So good!

    By MercyLuis
    If you love quirky rom-coms that will make you laugh, cry and blush through the steamy parts, this book is totally for you! The plot is very simple yet there are so many layers within this beautiful friendship between the two main characters that will make you fall in love with this book. I definitely can see myself re-reading this story over and over again. It is one of those light hearted romance reads but with enough drama and depth to it that makes it such a page -turner. I highly recommend this book!
  • Hit all my interests.

    By Jankyjane
    A wonderful, suspenseful love story. I could not put it down!
