About the Book:

From the Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of the Everything series comes a new novel of love, lies, and deceit.

Lifestyle journalist Ella Skye remembers every celebrity she interviewed, every politician she charmed between the sheets, and every socialite who eyed her with envy. The chance meeting with her husband, Damien; their rapid free fall into love; and their low-key, intimate wedding are all locked in her memory. But what she can’t remember is the tragic car accident that ripped her unborn child from her. Ella can’t even recall being pregnant.

Hoping to find the memories of a lost pregnancy that’s left her husband devastated and their home empty, Ella begins delving into her past when she’s assigned an exclusive story about Nathan Donovan, a retired celebrity adventurer who seems to know more about her than she does him. To unravel the mystery of her selective memory loss, Ella follows Nathan from the snowcapped Sierra Nevada to the frozen slopes of southeast Alaska. There she discovers the people she trusts most aren’t the only ones keeping secrets from her—she’s hiding them from herself. Ella quickly learns that some truths are best left forgotten.

My Thoughts:

This is my second book from Kerry Lonsdale, and I love it just as much as the first.

Ella Skye is a lifestyle journalist who interviews celebrities and politicians alike. She also crosses the line sometimes with those she interacts and has had an escapade or two.

But then she meets, Damien, and quickly falls in love and marries. She remembers every detail of their whirlwind romance, but not the tragic accident that causes her to lose her pregnancy. The whole pregnancy is wiped from her memory.

Ella is searching for answers, for memories. She is assigned a story about Nathan Donovan, a celebrity who knows things about her even she doesn’t know. She follows Nathan to gather answers, and she learned the truth may not set her free.

Last Summer is filled with tension and suspense! I wanted to know more about Ella right alongside her. All the characters are richly drawn and real. There’s equal parts drama and darkness here.

My favorite aspect of Lonsdale’s books is the effortless writing that makes for effortless reading. I slammed this book so fast, and I loved every minute. While you may think you have heard a storyline similar to Ella’s before, I can assure you this is a fresh take that will keep you guessing.

Overall, Last Summer is a compelling drama perfect for summer reading or any time of year!
