Poppy has everything she should want, but she’s stuck in a rut. When someone asks when she was last truly happy, she knows, without a doubt, it was on that ill-fated, final trip with Alex.

Does the book People We Meet on Vacation have a happy ending?

Is People We Meet on Vacation a steamy book?

The book features all the vacations that Poppy and Alex took together and it was so fun to see where they went.

Is the kiss quotient spicy?

IT’S SMOKIN’ HOT. This is a romance novel, after all, and it wouldn’t be worth its salt if it didn’t have some truly steamy scenes. And boy ARE THEY STEAMY. There is such a lovely through line of the entire novel in which Stella is actively seeking her own pleasure.

Is People We Meet on Vacation slow-burn?

Their slow-burn love story hits on beloved romance tropes (such as there unexpectedly being only one bed on the reconciliation trip Poppy plans) while still feeling entirely fresh.
