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. 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?… (lisätietoja)

my thoughts:

I did not want this book to end! This is the type of book that I love to read, strong friendship, love and reconciliation along with a great plot. Katherine aka Kitty Kat leaves behind a small New England town , her best friend and boyfriend for the glamorous New York City and an even more glamorous job. I love NYC and the thought of a high-powered career in a cosmetics company. I liked and related to Katherine much more that Laney, while I did like Laney, I was rooting in Katherine's corner the whole time. The setting , small town Vermont and the plot, best friends now enemies, was great. I loved the small surprises along the way as well. Laney's boss Tina was one of those characters you love to hate and want to see get what is coming to her. Luella, the rich older neighbor who left Laney and Katherine the inheritance was one of those characters you wished you knew but unfortunately you cannot, however the author writes her character so well that you feel like she is with you.

The book ends on a nice note with a few surprises. I hope to read more from this author soon.

Katherine "Kitty" and Laney met when they were only eleven. They became immediate best friends, they were as close as sisters for ten years until their friendship imploded.

Both girls/women spent their days with a neighborhood lady Luella. She was like a mom to Kitty.

After the friends part ways, they are out of touch for 12 years until Luella passes away and leaves her house to both girls. Their is the stipulation that they must make all the decisions/improvements together in order to share the inheritance.

Ok, I know they're not real people. But it still made me sad to see these two former best friends not just drift apart but basically hate each other. In addition, it was sad that both of them lost touch with Luella after everything she did for them. Though, sometimes Luella's opinions were actually what led to fractures in their friendship. I don't think either one of then held it against each other.

I think it concluded well. And I like the character Grant and his part in the story. ( )

cover reminds me of the paperback cover of Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus' Between You and Me [bc:Between You and Me|13260433|Between You and Me|Emma McLaughlin|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1364139112s/13260433.jpg|18461159]

This was my first book by Emily, and it definitely will not be my last!

I loved “You Knew Me When” and found it hard to put down-- as grabs you from the cover, and never lets you down throughout- to the ending. An ideal setting of Vermont and New York and could imagine the love within these three homes side by side in the neighborhood years ago. The author does an outstanding job of looking at each individual character in order for the reader to see all sides.

The characters were nicely developed (loved Katherine), and as could so relate to her in every way, and thought Laney (brat, small minded, and very immature). I happen to be the one who left for the big city, and family or friends sometimes do not understand if they live in the same place throughout their lives. I was excited for Kitty/Katherine and glad she took this path in order to get where she wanted to be in the end.

I really enjoyed Emily’s writing style, disclosing just enough to keep you hanging from Kitty’s childhood, teen years, to her NY successful career with Blend --seamlessly blending past with present. I very much enjoyed the character Luella, as it added much depth to the novel, as could envision her as glamorous, sophisticated, and the ideal role model for Kitty/Katherine.

A poignant story of friendship and the struggles of sacrificing yourself for your friends, or staying true to your heart to do the right thing. Realistic choices, challenges, and obstacles we face when we leave our friends, as not everyone is the same, each with different goals and journeys. Both girls are sent on a different journey which was fitting for their individual personalities. Sometimes it takes moving away and maturity to make dreams come true.

As the two friends come together with their shared inheritance (Luella’s Victorian mansion), they are forced to address their past and differences. I loved the beauty, fashion, cosmetics and style—with three different generations of women and families, reminiscent of childhood days. A novel of relationships, the bonds of friendships and family, redemption, forgiveness, reconciliation, and starting over. Definitely shows friendships can be closer than family at times and the power of true BFFs.

An engaging read, I highly recommend for women of all ages. I look forward to reading Facebook Fairytales, and her new booking coming Sept, 2014-- “When we Fall”. Emily has been added to my favorite author list --definitely a talented writer you will want to follow!

YOU KNEW ME WHEN by Emily Liebert is an interesting Chic-Lit/Women's Fiction. Debut author Emily Liebert has written an interesting tale of love,lost,grief,friendship,forgiveness,healing and going home. If you have ever longed for a true friendship,an old friend or going home than YOU KNEW ME WHEN is definitely the story for you to read. Well written with characters who are realistic,engaging and will challenge your heart. The storyline is interesting as well as captivating. If you long for a sisterhood,and the theory that best friends are forever, or until life gets in the way, whichever comes first, than you will not regret picking up this title for it is all about friendship,bonds,sisterhood and the bonds that holds them together. Some bonds can not be broken. Well written. If you enjoy Chic-Lit,Women's Fiction and a good read than "You Knew Me When" is the story for you. An enjoyable read! Received for an honest review from the publisher.
