Can you ever really know if love is true? And if it is, should you stop at anything to get it?

Two decades ago, Erin Edwards was sure she'd already found the love of her life: Nate Lawson. Her first love. The one with whom she shared everything--dreams of the future, of children, plans for forever. The one she thought she would spend the rest of her life with. Until one terrible night when Erin made a mistake Nate could not forgive and left her to mourn the relationship she could never forget or get over.

Today, Erin is contentedly involved with a phenomenal guy, maneuvering a successful and exciting career, and raising a great daughter all on her own. So why would the name "Nate Lawson" be the first thing to enter her mind when her boyfriend asks her to marry him?

In the wake of the proposal, Erin finds herself coming unraveled over the past, and the love she never forgot. The more she tries to ignore it and move on, the more it haunts her.

Always Something There to Remind Me is a story that will resonate with any woman who has ever thought of that one first love and wondered, "Where is he?" and "What if…?" Filled with Beth Harbison's trademark nostalgia humor and heart, it will transport you, and inspire you to believe in the power of first love.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison Boyd | 2/14/2014

    " Good, old-fashioned chick lit for non-thinking but feeling like reading something. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 2/2/2014

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tricia | 1/28/2014

    " Stopped reading this book barely a 100 pages into it. Pretty disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ehbooklover | 1/25/2014

    " A story about the one that got away. Examines teenage love and all the drama that comes with it. Chapters alternate between the present and the past quite effectively. A decent read despite being rather formulaic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doris Jalbuna | 1/24/2014

    " a must-read if you want to bawl your eyes out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea Hargette | 1/12/2014

    " Omg, I thought it was so good! I never wanted to put it down!! It ended in a predictable way but it was still a good ending. It definitely brought back my memories & feelings of my first love but it also showed me that what I thought was MY first love really wasn't. I remember more painful memories than happy ones. I married my real love:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Faye | 1/12/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda Woolverton | 12/20/2013

    " This story felt a little familiar with the 'young first love' theme... But her narrating gets old and annoying. Still a cute book, I just wouldn't put it in my favs list or anything. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kelli | 12/8/2013

    " In no way is this book even remotely realistic. The characters did nothing for me and the back and forth between past and present felt as though it were never ending. "

    " This was the sweetest story. While I did grow tired of the 'all about me' teenage Erin, didn't we all go through some kind if a stage at that age? Oh true love is wonderful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin Martin | 9/5/2013

    " This was agin book to listen to. Even though I knew how it would end, there were still parts that surprised me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 8/14/2013

    " This book was alright. Nothing too exciting but it was interesting enough to keep me reading. Definitely not one of Harbison's best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Murray | 8/11/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ramona | 5/6/2013

    " I loved this book! I LOVED this book. I LOVED THIS BOOK! If you were a teen during the 80's, you will "get" and enjoy all the 80's references. And if you had a first love that you wondered "what if", then you must read this book. I literally could not put it down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marah | 6/13/2012

    " The story moved on slowly. I did not believe that Erin knew what she was doing at her job and the ending was disappointing. I really wanted to like this book, but it was not what I had expected. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 L | 2/8/2012

    " This novel alternates chapters between a woman's first love as a teen, and her life as an adult, a Mom, an event planner,and a frustrated dater. As you would predict, the first love comes back into her life, and events unfold that neither of them could have foreseen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle Rodolfo | 11/10/2011

    " the end was good and I liked the flashbacks but it became quite repetitive in the middle. Light girly read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Johnna Ehlendt | 9/30/2011

    " The book involved alot of monologue that I would sometimes skip paragraphs, but I really loved the storyline. My heart broke when they broke up, my stomach had butterflies when they saw each other again, I could fill all the emotions of Erin and how she felt about Nate! Definitely a re-read! "
