About this deal

The holiday house where they’ve had so much fun is going to be sold, so there is only one last chance for a perfect week. How hard could it be to stay in the same room, touching and kissing your ex in front of others when you are still harboring your unresolved feelings? i see myself a lot in those characters, being scared that my friend group will fall apart since everyone is building their own life, going their own way, moving to another city. Sabrina's father owns a lake house in Knott's Harbor, and the trio has been spending the week of Lobster Fest there ever since graduation.

does that make me miss the golden age of my life during which she was writing about both and also magic and also realism and also YA? the writing was absolutely beautiful and some quotes hit me very hard, but i have many issues with the book that ultimately made it fall a bit short for me. do i think her adult romances are often pale comparisons, in terms of their friendships and relationships and character depth and even humor and reality and emotion, to those books? She explained gracefully how achieving your goals and purposes in life doesn’t specially rhythm with happiness.

this is like a larger issue relating to capitalism and triggering my fight or flight but not everything has to be mercenary. It's a chance to reconnect and relive old times, even while life continues to move forward and threaten to drive a wedge into their friendship. in their review that they felt like they were third wheeling this friend group, like they were doing their own thing and as the reader you didn’t really have a reason to care, and that’s exactly how i feel! wyn is such a pos, you can't convince me this man loved her for a single sec, they were together for almost 10 years and he broke up with her over the phone?

i really wanted this to be a book i would feel so connected to, and would always stay with me, but it’s not one of those books.You know it can’t last and that you have to go back to reality but that time away, it can do so much for your soul and the author captured that perfectly. Things get sticky when it’s time for the communal annual holiday with her friends from university but Harriet’s ready to tell them.

I can’t figure out whether this is a feeling specific to her books alone or the feeling you get when you are reading a story that’s about to become your favourite.PSA: this book relies heavily on past miscommunication/lack of communication so if you’re a miscommunication hater like me, be aware. My dream was to become a neurosurgeon, so I was speechless and almost screaming like Regina George in Mean Girls). The cottage is for sale so this is the last time they'll all be together here and they can't bear to break their friends' hearts.

I thought I was getting a fun, summer romance that I’d enjoy, but would ultimately be forgettable in a sea of illustrated covers, but color me surprised when I discovered there was so much more here. I couldn't pull away from this book and can't wait to read Beach Read (which has been on my list since last year) very soon. Like, are you going to tell me that after a long-ass relationship of 8 YEARS, neither of you can communicate things?Every year, they take a holiday from their lives to drink far too much wine with their favourite people in the world. i’m not sure what sense of surprise or whatever was meant to be here, but it was painfully obvious from the beginning that they all had their own shit going on. i loved seeing this group navigate through it all, i crave a friendship like what they all have even though it’s dysfunctional and the conflict would be over lack of communication was juvenile but it made it feel so much more real. But for the last trip with her friends it’s very different – she has to pretend that her relationship with Wyn isn’t over.
