Harriet is supposed to be in her happy place—she should be enjoying the annual trip to Maine with her beloved college friends. Instead, she’s in a funk after her fiancé Wyn broke up with her with no explanation. He’s an integral part of the friend group and the trip, so Harriet and Wyn decide to keep their news secret in order to not upset their friends. The vacation home they always stay at is for sale, so this may be their last summer there together, and the pressure is on to have one last perfect trip. Harriet and Wyn agree that to get through this vacation, they need to pretend the breakup never happened, and afterward they can go their separate ways. But their enduring love for each other keeps finding its way to the surface. Via alternating flashback and present-day chapters, readers get the full buildup of Wyn and Harriet’s love story over years, making their relationship one to root for.
VERDICT This sexy and profoundly romantic novel will satisfy fans of best-selling Henry’s (Book Lovers) thrilling trademark mix of witty banter and intensely emotional storylines.
