“People We Meet On Vacation”

Published by Berkley Books May 2021

My review:

This book is 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 amazing!! The humor is spot on where I couldn’t stop smiling and I’d make my husband read it, the emotion and making you want to cry! The character depth and growth is phenomenal!
Poppy has a big colorful personality and she can’t wait to get out of her little suburban town. At college shee meets another freshman, Alex, who looks as lost and lonely as she feels. And little did they know then how meeting each other would affect their lives
Every summer they take a trip somewhere. Sometimes big and grand or cheap and not far from home. Nashvegas 😂 And you go on these trips with them and are laughing at their inside jokes “this book speaks to me” 😉😉
They’re the best of friends and it goes from present summer and it flips from present to their past trips. 12 years ago until the fated 2 summers ago. You know something happened which equally kept me reading because I needed to know but also dreaded knowing.
The best thing about going on vacation is coming home. Poppy is a strong female heroine and can achieve anything she puts her mind to, Alex is amazing with his strength and banter and muscles and ah- it’s all amazing! ☺️

I’ve reread this again because my audiobook from the library finally came in and the narration is just as good too!!

Honestly can’t go wrong with this book and since a massive heat wave I can say I’ve experienced 90 degree humidity and it’s awful. Hopefully to never experience it ever again. But I got their angst and frustration.


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?
