Happy Place

Her upcoming novel is about a couple who broke up, but pretend to still be together for an annual weeklong vacation with their best friends. Harriet and Wyn were always the perfect couple in college– They fit perfectly together. However, now for reasons they still won’t tell, they aren’t together anymore.

They broke up five months ago and still haven’t told anyone. Not even their best friends.

What better twist to throw in than them having to pretend to still be together staying in the same room at a Maine cottage on their annual weeklong vacation? They are lying through their teeth because this is the last time they will all get a chance to do this–Given the vacation cottage is for sale and all. The last thing they want to do is break their friends hearts.

According to Emily Henry,

“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).”
