It’s been six months since Willow left Kate Bergman’s college dorm room to go for an evening run…and never came back.

Everybody else who loved Willow is ready for closure, but something deep inside Kate says that her dearest childhood friend is somehow still alive. And that obstinate conviction is alienating all the people Kate loves most.

Even River McEwan is upset with her, and that’s the deepest blow of all. River was Willow’s boyfriend, but the three of them—Kate, Willow, and River—have been friends since childhood.

When a professor assigns Kate and River to be partners in a joint research project, Kate hopes it’s a chance to tear down the barrier between them, but instead faces an even bigger challenge. As she and River meet over the school project, their renewed friendship flares into something more.

Soon River is enticing Kate to do things she’s never dreamed of. But while she can’t imagine giving up River, Kate doesn’t know whether she can—or even should—stop wondering whether Willow will ever come home….


What an extraordinary start to Emma Tharp’s journey as a published author! It’s hard to believe that this was her debut novel because she has a brilliant way with words and knows how to hook her readers right in from the start!

What About Her is a super sweet and lovable friends to lovers story that I devoured in less than two hours! This story immediately captured my attention and I had to finish it as soon as possible. I absolutely adored Kate’s personality and loved reading her feelings towards River who happens to be her missing best friend Willow’s boyfriend. I could feel their attraction for one another jumping off the page. Their romance was sweet and written in such a beautiful way that readers won’t be able to help but fall in love with them. Oh and what a surprise ending…OMG…let me just say that I am already eagerly anticipating the next installment in the series.


About Emma Tharp

Emma was raised in upstate NY. Being an only child, she spent a great deal of time alone dreaming up characters that would keep her company on long family road trips. Putting her writing on the back burner, she went to college and became a chiropractor. After spending 14 years healing patients, Emma decided—with the help of her amazingly supportive husband—to use the creative side of her brain and let her characters come to the page.

If she’s not writing, Emma can be found at the gym, one of her kids sporting events, Starbucks, or at a live music event.

A perfect day for Emma would be spent at her lake house with her husband, two ginger-haired children, and Vizsla, reading a book and drinking a large cup of coffee (or wine) with music playing in the background.
