“Magnetic, witty, and expansive. The world is going to fall hard for this deliciously whimsical and captivating story, and I cannot wait to see it!” —Ali Hazelwood, New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis

“Outright perfection!”—Christina Lauren, Kate Clayborn Fanclub Co-Presidents and Authors of The Soulmate Equation

“A sweet novel that reminds you going back is sometimes the best path forward . . . and that planning is never as rewarding as doing.” —Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author

The acclaimed author of Love Lettering weaves a wise and witty new novel that echoes with timely questions about love, career, reconciling with the past, and finding your path while knowing your true worth.

Longtime personal assistant Georgie Mulcahy has made a career out of putting others before herself. When an unexpected upheaval sends her away from her hectic job in L.A. and back to her hometown, Georgie must confront an uncomfortable truth: her own wants and needs have always been a disconcertingly blank page.

But then Georgie comes across a forgotten artifact—a “friendfic” diary she wrote as a teenager, filled with possibilities she once imagined. To an overwhelmed Georgie, the diary’s simple, small-scale ideas are a lifeline—a guidebook for getting started on a new path.

Georgie’s plans hit a snag when she comes face to face with an unexpected roommate—Levi Fanning, onetime town troublemaker and current town hermit. But this quiet, grouchy man is more than just his reputation, and he offers to help Georgie with her quest. As the two make their way through her wishlist, Georgie begins to realize that what she truly wants might not be in the pages of her diary after all, but right by her side—if only they can both find a way to let go of the pasts that hold them back.

Honest and deeply emotional, Georgie, All Along is a smart, tender must-read for everyone who’s ever wondered about the life that got away . . .

“Absolute perfection—this is the book you are looking for. Georgie All Along is a tour de force, beautifully written and full of charming characters, rich emotion, and delicious spice. With it, Kate Clayborn solidifies her place in romance royalty.” —Sarah MacLean, New York Times bestselling author

“A modern yet timeless love story.”—Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

“Tender and sexy…features strong friendships and will appeal to fans of Emily Henry.” —Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW


This book, wow. I’m amazed, this being the third book I’ve read by Kate Clayborn, by her writing style every time. This book was so thoughtful and beautifully written. I’m in constant awe of it. The only reason it’s not an automatic 5 star read is because it took me a while to get into the story. However, I predict that will change on a reread.

Georgie and Levi, can you just say “couple goals”. They are so beautiful and skillfully written. We’re given a chance to get into both of their heads and learn how they came to this moment in their lives. Levi especially is consciously choosing every action he takes as a result of his past and is unable to break from that hold. Georgie is back home after her all consuming job and is trying to figure out the next step in her life. I related to Georgie so much. She eventually comes to the realization that not everyone needs to plan out their lives and that it is totally okay to live in the moment. And wow, does that realization hit home so much. Reading this book, I kept making plans about gifting copies to people in my life who would benefit from and appreciate the beauty of this story!
