A couple who broke up months ago 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.

 
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 five months ago. And still haven’t told their best friends.
 
Which is how they find themselves sharing a 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, blissful 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?

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“I’ve always wanted to read Happy Place since I’ve heard so many great things about the book. Moreover it’s my first Emily Henry’s book and it’s perfect 🥹🥹🥹 I feel like I’m going to read more books by her in the next weeks. Happy place is a heartwarming and beautiful second chance romance with a circle of friends/ found family around. It’s not easy to have your boyfriend being part of your circle and when everything stops between you, you’re afraid it’s going to destroy the dynamics of the group. So I totally felt for Harriet 🥺🥺 all the decisions she and Wyn made during the trip came from a good intention because they felt like telling the group they’re not gonna marry anymore impact the group 😭😭😭 I’m so jealous of their love 😭😭 Wyn’s love for Harriet is overwhelming: the guy loved her way too much and his heart belonged to Harriet even though he was ready to let her go 😭😭😭 Who does that??? 😭😭😭 so yeah I cried a lot. And the friendship between Harriet, Sabrina and Cleo 😪😪😪 it’s so beautiful and so pure. Happy place reminded me that it’s the little things that make us happy, the places we felt at peace and surrounded by love and that communication is key in any relationship 🥹🥹🥹”

“After reading this I do understand the EH hype. Her writing feels very genuine and touches on many important themes. I related to the FMC Harriet very much and enjoyed her character arc. Will definitely be reading more Emily Henry books!”
Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“As a 25 year old woman who is considering leaving the medical field and dreams of living in a small coastal town in New England, I feel like Harriet understands me! lol! But seriously, this book is just beautiful and made me so emotional! I think the author covered mental health well and the romance was sweet!”
