The cover of Happy Place, a contemporary romance novel by Emily Henry. (Penguin Random House/Graphic by Nate Mauldin)

REVIEW: Emily Henry’s ‘Happy Place’ is the perfect read to start off your summer

Grace Lanham, Staff Writer May 31, 2023
Emily Henry never fails to exceed reader’s expectations, and her recent release, “Happy Place,” is no exception. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading all of Henry’s books, but “Happy Place” is the perfect follow-up to her three most recent romance titles, all of which I have read: “People We Meet On Vacation,” “Beach Read,” and “Book Lovers.” “Happy Place,” published on April 25, will find a new spot in all readers’ hearts.
