Official Summary: Best friends forever…until life got in the way.

   Katherine Hill left her small New England hometown in pursuit of a dream. Now, twelve years later, she’s a high-powered cosmetics executive in Manhattan and a much glossier version of her former self, unrecognizable to her family and old friends. Not that she would know—she hasn’t been home in over a decade.

Laney Marten always swore she’d never get “stuck” in Manchester, Vermont. No, she was destined to live out her glamorous big-city dreams. Instead, she wound up a young wife and mother. That was when her best friend ran out.

When Katherine receives word of an inheritance from former neighbor Luella Hancock, she reluctantly returns home to the people and places she left behind. Hoping for a second chance, she’s met by an unforgiving Laney, her former best friend. And there’s someone else who’s moved on without her—someone she once loved.

Tethered to their shared inheritance of Luella’s sprawling Victorian mansion, Katherine and Laney are forced to address their long-standing grudges. Through this, they come to understand that while life has taken them in different directions, ultimately the bonds of friendship and sisterhood still bind them together. But are some wounds too old and deep to mend?


I've been Emily's intern for about a year now, and I'm so excited that her novel is finally coming out! The summer might be ending, but You Knew Me When would make a lovely end of summer/beginning of fall book. Only $9 for a new paperback is pretty great too, so hopefully some of you will take the chance and pre-order a copy today! If you don't pre-order, then be sure to check out The Book Depository, as it's on sale for $11.03 (with free shipping!)

This is the first I'm hearing about this book, but I might need to look into it. I really love those stories where you meet people you left behind a long time ago and have to somehow reconcile your relationship with them somehow.

Thanks for sharing! <33
