Blurb; Two friends. Ten trips. Their last chance to fall in love…
*Also known as People We Meet On Vacation*
12 YEARS AGO: Poppy and Alex meet. They hate each other, and are pretty confident they’ll never speak again.
11 YEARS AGO: They’re forced to share a ride home from college and by the end of it a friendship is formed. And a pact: every year, one vacation together.
10 YEARS AGO: Alex discovers his fear of flying on the way to Vancouver. Poppy holds his hand the whole way.
7 YEARS AGO: They get far too drunk and narrowly avoid getting matching tattoos in New Orleans.
2 YEARS AGO: It all goes wrong.
THIS YEAR: Poppy asks Alex to join her on one last trip. A trip that will determine the rest of their lives.
My Review; I read book lovers before this and fell in love with this author so ofcourse I had to read her other books and this was just as brilliant. A holiday rom-com. Raced through this. The chapters flick from their current holiday to their past 12 holidays together. A beautiful story. Uplifting. Warm. Full of friendship and love. Perfect read. Would highly recommend. A well deserved five stars from me. I loved both Alex and Poppy’s characters. I love this author, her stories and writing style.
Blurb; One summer. Two rivals. A plot twist they didn’t see coming….
Nora Stephens’ life is books—she’s read them all—and she is not that type of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream girl, and especially not the sweetheart. In fact, the only people Nora is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby.
Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sisters’ trip away—with visions of a small-town transformation for Nora, who she’s convinced needs to become the heroine in her own story. But instead of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they’ve met many times and it’s never been cute.
If Nora knows she’s not an ideal heroine, Charlie knows he’s nobody’s hero, but as they are thrown together again and again—in a series of coincidences no editor worth their salt would allow—what they discover might just unravel the carefully crafted stories they’ve written about themselves.
My Review; Oh its a TikTok book. It’s that book and author you see EVERYWHERE. I know. I gave it ago to see the hype for myself and I wasn’t disappointed! They got this one right. What a brilliant read. I was hooked. Very enemies to lovers kind of. Brilliant ending. Funny parts along the way. I devoured this. I already cannot wait to see what her other stories are like. I know I’m late to the party with this one but its a must read and may just end up in my top reads of the year. I’d love to see this turned into a film/tv series. Highly recommend. A well deserved five stars from me.
