Happy Place by Emily Henry
INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!
Harriet and Wyn have been the epitome of a perfect couple ever since they met in college. They complement each other like salt and pepper, honey and tea, lobster and rolls. However, for undisclosed reasons, they are no longer together.
Their breakup occurred five months ago, and they still haven’t mustered the courage to inform their closest friends. This leads them to an unconventional situation: sharing a bedroom at the Maine cottage, the annual retreat for their friend group over the past ten years. This cherished getaway offers a temporary escape from their daily lives, a week filled with abundant cheese, wine, seafood, and the refreshing coastal air shared with the people who understand them best.
This year, however, Harriet and Wyn are concealing their true feelings while desperately yearning for each other. The cottage is up for sale, marking the final week they will all spend together in this beloved place. They can’t bear to shatter their friends’ hearts, so they decide to play their roles. Harriet will portray the driven surgical resident who avoids conflict, while Wyn will embody the laid-back charmer who hides his vulnerabilities. It seems like a flawless plan, at least when viewed from a distance and through sunscreen-smeared sunglasses. After being in love for so long, how difficult can it be to feign happiness for just one week? Especially in front of those who know them best.
