People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry Book Summary

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?

Predictable. Predictable from the Preface

boring, not really interesting story line. halfway through the book and there’s no feeling of a connection between them.

Fun Beach Read. A good story definitely good for a beach read on vacation!

So fun and a quick read!. I loved this book. While it’s not my fav emily henry book it still brought me joy. Slow at parts, but alex and poppy are filled with chemistry!

Meh.. It wasn’t horrible, but it also isn’t “can’t put down, finished it one day” good. Predictable and veryyy slow. Poppy wasn’t an “interesting” character that left an impression, and now that I think about it… neither was Alex.

Cancel your plans good. Didn’t want to put this book down. It’s everything you could want in a summer read and more.

Good book. Good read fell in love with poppy immediately

Beautiful. Fell in love so quickly with the wit and charm of the characters. Every time I wasn’t reading it, I was excited to pick it back up again.

Speechless. 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.

👎 Poppy. I didn’t really like poppy and sure Alex seems like a great guy but I don’t feel like they are a match

so great. such a fun love story

Best book!. I loved this book so much that as soon as I finished I just wanted to start it all over again!

So so. So so

Vacay read. Fun, romantic, light read. If you are looking for something light to distract you, this is it.

slow burn,,,but so freakin worth it.. This is the first book i have ever read by Emily Henry, and let me tell you not the freakin last. I have only read a couple of books where the author is able to transport you inside the characters lives so perfectly ( I’ll give you the sun , evelyn Hugo ). Emily Henry was able to make me dream about these characters, anticipating every next chapter, ever next moment with these characters lives. By the end we’re shown how our unsaid words, and feelings can plague our time and happiness with someone who’s worth it in the end. Also we definitely have an opposite trope in this, and who just doesn’t love reading about our missing puzzle piece in this world. 💗

meh, be careful. it was good until i got halfway through and then it started getting really dramatic and it wasn’t a lighthearted summer read anymore like it was in the beginning. so just a warning, be careful reading this!! it might not be all that it’s cracked up to be.

so so good. this book has a miscommunication trope but it’s such a cute book!!

People We Meet On Vacation. It always starts out as friends, doesn't it? Well..that's what they say. 😏 In Henry's second book, that seems to be the case: I love that Poppy (forgot her last name) and Alex Nilsen started out their relationship as friends; then I liked learning that their friendship turned out to be complicated when it is insinuated that they have romantic feelings for one another; and I enjoyed the slow-burn romance for sure as they got closer together---in the past and in the recent chapters. This book is one of my favorites. 😍😍😍😍❤️❤️❤️❤️

A fun, light read, like a hug. If you like Gilmore Girls, Alex and Poppy are have Luke and Lorelai vibes. I truly believe that if you read this book at the right moment it will feel like a hug for you. I’m not a romance reader, but I do love the friends to lovers trope. Alex and Poppy are such opposites and Emily Henry does a wonderful, seamless job at showing their chemistry.

Hard Pass - it’s a weak read. Awful. Extremely redundant, as if the author needed to hit a word minimum. Trying way to hard to be “hip”.

Great read. Fun read. Love the humor and writing. Highly recommend

Wouldn’t download. It wouldn’t download after the sample. Technically, I would love to read this. Was great!

A bit slow, but cute!. I thought this was a cute story. I will admit, the first 200 pages were a bit slow. Lots of back and forth and it took awhile for the romance to start. I loved Alex and Poppy! I do think Book Lovers was better than PWMOV.

Sweet. Had to round up to 4 because it had me laughing out loud numerous times.

Not good. this book would be good for maybe high schoolers.

Expected a lot more from the hype. First book I’ve DNF. I got to chapter 15, in two days, because I kept taking breaks so I could figure out if I wanted to finish it or not because I was so bored. I’m giving it two stars because every time I was at my point of giving up on it one of them would say something funny, but that’s all. I particularly liked the comment about his cat in the prologue, but it just went downhill from there. I didn’t even care enough to find out what they had a fight about honestly. I may pick this back up in a few months and give it/ the author another try but as of right now neither are for me.

Equal parts annoying and addicting. I passed on this one the first time around but circled back because I love Emily Henry. I hated Alex and Poppy but loved the way this book felt real.

Good enough. Good enough book but her other book, Book Lovers, is much better!

For when you want to meet absolutely no one on vacation!. This was a cute little story I read while traveling. It’s perfect for zoning out on an air plane, and it makes you feel warm and fuzzy despite being sandwiched in the middle seat of a 737. Highly recommend for all of your cutesy rom-com travel needs.

Love. Loved it!

Boring. 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.

Unexpectedly good. 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.

Great summer read!. Lighthearted and very captivating, perfect summer read!

Great read. People We Meet on Vacation is a great light read that is intriguing. I enjoyed both characters but I feel like the last few chapters fell short. As cliche and romantic as it was, I was expecting more. However I have been binging all of Emily Henry’s novels and find all of them AMAZING

Funny. Funny. I laughed out loud! Sweet, exciting. Waiting for what comes next.

OMG READ IT. This book was so real, the problems they had, the way they solved them, how their lives were built. I loved it!

A very good love story. That spans 12 years…you might enjoy it…….

Slow start but…. Slow start, but also really fun story. Felt like it was a little drug out for extra chapters maybe but all in all I liked it.

People we meet on vacation. Too predictable

Thought. Emily Henry is a gem. I love her writing so much. : we

fun light read. This was okay for me. The story wasn’t something that made me want to keep reading, it took me forever, months, to finish this book. Too long for something with basic story driving it, the characters love story didn’t do it for me

Summer read. Started a little slow for me but once it got going I couldn’t put it down. I laughed, I cried, I had second hand embarrassment and related to this book so much. I’d seen it on a bunch of must read lists and definitely would recommend.

✨✨✨✨. I loved it🤍

Painfully slow and tedious. I’ve enjoyed other books by this author but I could not finish this book. It was hard to like either of the main characters. It also jumped around in a very illogical and hard to follow order. Just ugh.

Boring. This is terrible boring. No chemistry between main leads and no interesting story lines.

Such a cute read. I’m a sucker for a good rom-com and this book made me laugh and made me teary-eyed. The characters were great and I loved that it wasn’t TOO slow of a read.

Great Story…. I don’t often take the time to write book reviews, but that was fantastic. For me, it was one of those books that you love so well you get a little frustrated at the end when the ads come up for other books. You just aren’t quite ready to move on yet, or even consider other book characters. Clearly, I loved it.

Ho Hum!. I love a little sappy from time to time, but this was sickeningly sweet. Not one move or sentence unexpected.

Can’t put it down. Laughter, tears, love!

Totally relatable, I could read this over again. I feel madly I love with the characters in this book, probably because we have all been there in our lives at one time or another. I love the love Alex and Poppy share. I really enjoyed their journey! A must read for me!

Incredible. I am always reading books and I have to say honestly this is now one of my favourite books, that I’ve ever read. So lovely. How she writes is beautiful and the story is just so amazing. Really really love this one!

Well done Emily Henry!. I enjoyed this one. It has a very “When Harry met Sally” vibe but in the best way! It’s the fuller story rom com lovers have always wanted. The friendship and love between Poppy and Alex is beautiful and real. The brokeness of each character is heartening. The moral of the story was clear. The jokes were funny! I enjoyed Henry’s writing style and sentence structure. All that being said I did find the story to drag a little (now that might just be a me problem). 5/5 I understand why the internet recommended it.

Book funk over. A classic slow burn romance that will get you out of a reading funk and won’t have you putting it down till it’s over.. loved it

Best book ever.. This was such an amazing book. Couldn’t put it down. Had me laughing, sitting on the edge of the seat and crying. Wish I could read it again for the first time. Amazing.

Slow. The build up seemed extremely slow, I was let down with the ending.

Beautiful story. A beautiful story peppered with flashbacks that show how the characters fell in love with each other in a slow burn. So well-written; heart-wrenching in all the best ways. New favourite book! 10/10

10/10. Probably one of the best books I’ve read.

Inspiring. Well written and inspiring.
