After three years of dating and trading nights at their respective New York City apartments, Emma Feit and Nick O’Hare are moving in together. Or they will be, as soon as they find the right place. For two happily-in-love professionals–Nick’s a teacher, Emma tutors college-bound teens–with good credit and stellar references, how hard can it be? As it turns out, very–in ways that are completely unexpected.

Suddenly Emma is filled with questions about cohabiting, about giving up her freedom–not to mention about who’s going to clean the toilet. And while her best friend plans a dream wedding to her wealthy fiancé, and her older brother settles into suburban bliss, Emma must figure out what home means to her–and how on earth to get there.

If We Lived Here is the sweet, surprising story of a couple forced to weather all sorts of storms as they try to build a life together. The trials faced by Emma and Nick will be relatable to anyone who has ever taken a chance on love–with all its complications.” –Sarah Pekkanen, international best-selling author of Catching Air

If We Lived Here is a vivid depiction of both the claustrophobia and the potential of love and real estate. It’s a heartfelt exploration of what makes a home, and a funny, engaging chronicle of the growing pains of adult life.” –Jen Doll, author of Save the Date
