I’m behind on my stated goal of 28 books this year, but not so far behind that I can’t catch up. Earlier this month, I started People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry, but it didn’t grab me right away, so the e-book loan expired before I could really get into it. Luckily, I always have something on hold with the library (plus the three books I bought at an actual bookstore last week!), so I’m never without reading material. It’s always about finding the time and energy to do it.
I enjoyed the last book I read by this author, but even though that book went in a direction I wasn’t expecting, I didn’t prep myself for the same thing happening here. When the book starts, you know that something happens, but it’s really not the thing you expect. It quickly moves into standard romcom territory at the pub and you forget about the first chapter. Then the “inciting incident” hits you across the face in a way that takes your breath away, and we’re off to the races.
