From New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Kristan Higgins comes her much-anticipated new novel, IF YOU ONLY KNEW, a perceptive and touching story—centered on two sisters and the bittersweet summer that changes their lives forever—that displays all the quirky humor and captivating romance that fans have come to expect from the acclaimed creator of the tremendously popular Blue Heron series. 
When wedding dress designer Jenny Tate finds herself holding the baby of her ex-husband and his seemingly perfect new wife, all she can see is the life she had always imagined for them—but one her ex never did…not with Jenny, anyway.
Wanting to distance herself from the constant reminder of what will never be, Jenny decides to swap Manhattan for a brand-new start in an old place…her hometown up the Hudson River where, at the very least, she’ll have the love and support of her sister Rachel’s solid family to embrace her. Rachel believes she has the idyllic life—stay-at-home mom to young triplets and married to the ideal husband…until the day she accidentally discovers that her “perfect” spouse has been sexting and having an affair with a coworker. Devastated and furious, Rachel finds herself frozen—unable to forgive her husband for ruining their perfect life, yet terrified of losing everything they’ve built. Her parents had a “perfect” marriage, after all, and Rachel won’t accept anything less for herself. But Jenny knows something Rachel doesn’t—a secret she’s kept to herself since childhood, but to reveal it might be the last thing the emotionally fragile Rachel needs.

Amid all the emotional pain and drama, with their worlds upended by revelations of lustful affairs and marital indifference, both Jenny and Rachel must rely on each other as they try to make sense of their screwed-up lives. But for any chance at future happiness, they must first come to terms with the truth behind not only their marriages, but themselves, as well.

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author and two-time winner of the Romance Writers of America RITA® Award, Kristan lives with her family in a small Connecticut town that boasts a wonderful library, a great agricultural fair, a really good ice-cream stand and not much else. She is the mother of two lovely kids and the wife of a brave firefighter who is also (perhaps more important) a fantastic cook. Previously a copywriter, Kristan began writing fiction when her children graced her life with simultaneous afternoon naps. Writing, she found, was infinitely more satisfying than folding laundry, and so began her first novel. Kristan holds a BA in English from the College of the Holy Cross, which means she can identify dangling participles, quote many great novels and play a mean game of Scrabble. Kristan is an award-winning baker, devoted fan of the New York Yankees and an avid reader. She and her crew spend as much time as possible at the family home on Cape Cod, where they shiver in the Atlantic, ride bikes, swat horseflies and don’t catch any fish.

  2. LOVED this book! Finished it over the weekend and emailed Higgins to verify a suspicion about the character, Leo--and I was right! Huzzah! So any Loki fans out there, go read this book. :)

    Totally not entering the contest though. Once a decade for that horrible city is about all I can handle.

  3. I had pre-ordered this book & then went on vacation & didn't get to read it yet! Looking forward to it, as I am a giant Kristan Higgins fan! I live on LI, but only get to the city every few years. I came in for RWA in July! :)
