Hey, everyone. It’s pretty late. We had a very busy maintenance class. We were learning spackling and how to fix holes. There will be soooo many projects to tackle after I make a run to Home Depot. I will be very happy to get those things cleaned up although I am not excited about cleaning up spackle dust. That gets everywhere. We get to tile next week. Very excited.
As I mentioned earlier this week, Happy Place is a compelling story of loss…lost love, lost friendship, and loss of that one spot that let them pretend to be young again, unencumbered by adult problems. While sad, I was captivated by Harriet and Wyn and my need to find out how two people so in love lost their way to their HEA.
Just leave a comment to be entered in this week’s giveaway. Giveaway ends Thursday, May 4th. Giveaway is for a hardcover copy and open to U.S. residents only.
Harriet and Wyn have been the perfect couple since they met in college—they go together like salt and pepper, honey and tea, lobster and rolls. Except, now—for reasons they’re still not discussing—they don’t.
They broke up six months ago. And still haven’t told their best friends.
Which is how they find themselves sharing the largest bedroom at the Maine cottage that has been their friend group’s yearly getaway for the last decade. Their annual respite from the world, where for one vibrant, blue week they leave behind their daily lives; have copious amounts of cheese, wine, and seafood; and soak up the salty coastal air with the people who understand them most.
Only this year, Harriet and Wyn are lying through their teeth while trying not to notice how desperately they still want each other. Because the cottage is for sale and this is the last week they’ll all have together in this place. They can’t stand to break their friends’ hearts, and so they’ll play their parts. Harriet will be the driven surgical resident who never starts a fight, and Wyn will be the laid-back charmer who never lets the cracks show. It’s a flawless plan (if you look at it from a great distance and through a pair of sunscreen-smeared sunglasses). After years of being in love, how hard can it be to fake it for one week… in front of those who know you best?
A couple who broke up months ago make a pact to pretend to still be together for their annual weeklong vacation with their best friends in this glittering and wise new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Emily Henry.
Happy Friday! That’s very cool you are learning how to spackle and fix holes. I love Emily Henry! Her latest book sounds really good. Thanks for the giveaway!
I’ve really enjoyed Emily Henry’s previous books and am looking forward to reading Happy Place! Thanks for the chance!
Sounds like an interesting romance. How well can you fake it? Hmm… Good luck with the latest project. Of course, after you fix the holes, don’t you have to paint?
looking forward to reading this one! thanks for the chance!! 🙂
