Happy Place by Emily Henry – Audiobook
Romance trope: Forced proximity, Miscommunication
I have read all of Emily Henry’s books, and by that, I mean I have listened to every book. I love Julia Whelan as a narrator and find that these books are easy to listen to as an audible book because she brings the characters to life. While Henry is mainly known for romance books, I think this book is her least spicy one.
Long summary short – Harriet and Wyn met in college through mutual friends and have dated through college, medical school and Harriet’s residency. Until they breakup for an unknown reason. However, their close-knit group of friends meet every summer at a lake house in Maine, so they decide to not tell their friends they are broken up until after the trip. They pretend to be together the entire trip and it switches from present day to flashbacks of their relationship.
I thought the book was a little slow, but I ended up really liking it by the end because I thought that Henry did a great job with character development. You end up getting to know four other characters, and I wished we would have gotten more of their stories.
I love people watching, so books with great character development are one of my favorite things to read. However, they are not everyone’s cup of tea because they can be so slow and it feels like not a lot happens. The character development saves this book for me because I do not usually like the miscommunication trope.
This is the best conditioner. I have been using for two years now. The reason why it is so good is that it acts like a conditioning mask, but does not weigh your hair down.

This is my favorite dry shampoo. It does such a great job of absorbing oil and making my fair actually feel clean. The scent is still as strong as the original, though.
This is one of my favorite everyday sunscreens. I use it like a lotion and it moisturizes without feeling heavy or oily.
Love this lip balm. The Camelia color is the perfect subtle pink. Looks good over lipstick, and actually moisturizes your lips.
