People We Meet on Vacation is a charming and heartfelt romance novel that explores the power of friendship, the meaning of home, and the joy of travel. The book follows Poppy and Alex, two best friends who met in college and have been taking annual summer trips together for a decade. They are opposites in every way: Poppy is a free-spirited travel journalist who craves adventure and new experiences, while Alex is a reserved high school teacher who prefers stability and routine. Despite their differences, they have a deep connection and understand each other better than anyone else.
However, two years ago, something happened on their last trip to Croatia that ruined their friendship and made them stop talking. Poppy misses Alex terribly and decides to reach out to him and invite him to one more vacation, hoping to mend their relationship and maybe confess her true feelings for him. They end up going to Palm Springs for his brother’s wedding, where they reconnect, reminisce, and face their unresolved issues.
The book alternates between the present-day trip and flashbacks of their previous vacations, showing how their friendship evolved over the years and how they influenced each other’s lives. The author does a great job of creating vivid settings and capturing the essence of each destination, from Vancouver Island to New Orleans to Vail. The book also has a lot of humor, banter, and tension between the main characters, making their chemistry undeniable and their romance realistic.
People We Meet on Vacation is a book that will make you laugh, cry, and swoon. It is a book that celebrates the people we meet on our journeys, whether they are strangers, friends, or lovers. It is a book that reminds us that sometimes the best place to be is with the person who makes us feel less alone.
