“I’m on vacation. Vacations always end. It’s the very fact that it’s finite that makes traveling special. You could move to any one of those destinations you loved in small doses, and it wouldn’t be the spellbinding, life-altering seven days you spend there as a guest, letting a place into your heart fully, letting it change you.”
This romance novel is about the friendship between Poppy Wright and Alex Nilsen. They share a ride home from college (the University of Chicago) and become best friends. They take vacations together as platonic friends every summer.
On their trip to Croatia, a drunken kiss between Poppy and Alex leads to several years of estrangement. On a trip to David’s wedding (Alex’s brother) they share a short romance that goes wrong and they do not speak for a while.
When they see each other, again will they get back together or remain just friends?
