Author Kristan Higgins, New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author will be at the downtown Fairfield University Bookstore, 1499 Post Road, Fairfield, 203-255-7756 on Tuesday, Sept. 15, at 7 p.m. to discuss 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.

IF YOU ONLY KNEW 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.

IfYouOnlyKnew_FC_NO-FLASHWanting 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.

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.

“Romance star Higgins shifts smoothly and poignantly into women’s fiction with this emotionally compelling story and she brings her ability to create affecting heroines to this new genre. With a secondary cast of characters who buoy an already perceptive study of love, marriage, sisterhood, and loyalty, Higgins delivers. A powerful, emotionally textured winner.” –Kirkus Reviews

“The kind of book I enjoy the most—sparkling characters, fast-moving plot, and laugh-out-loud dialogue.”

—Susan Elizabeth Phillips, New York Times bestselling author of Heroes Are My Weakness
