    I am ecstatic to bring you my next project, LAST SUMMER Thank you for adding my book to your Goodreads shelf And when it comes up on your to be read pile of books, thank you for reading I can t wait for you to discover what my next protagonist, Ella Skye, has in store for you Enjoy Kerry xoPS LAST SUMMER is a stand alone book, and not part of a series It s my first stand alone since ALL THE BREAKING WAVES I ve been told by several early readers that LAST SUMMER is compulsively readable, so my apologies in advance for any lack of sleep because you couldn t put the book down BTW, those are the best kinds of books I love it when I can get sucked into a story and suffer from a book hangover when I finish.

    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 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 I received a complimentary copy All opinions are my own.My reviews can also be found on my blog

    Special thanks to the author, the publisher and NetGalley for a free, electronic ARC of this novel received in exchange for an honest review Ella Skye is a journalist and has spent her life keeping, sharing and spilling secrets After a few years of torrid affairs with her celebrity clients, Ella settles down and marries entrepreneur Damien, and the two begin a relatively quiet life together When Ella wakes up in a hospital room after a tragic car accident and is told of the baby she had miscarried, Ella is not grieving or hurt but merely confused Why does she not remember even being pregnant What happened the night of the accident and why can t Ella remember When her husband starts being elusive, Ella begins to investigate on her own with the help of an old client, world renowned celebrity adventurer, Nathan Donovan Ella quickly learns, however, that Nathan may have information than she bargained for information that may ruin her career and even her marriage I have read every novel that Kerry Lonsdale has published, from her Everything We Keep series, to the collection of short storiesA Thousand Doors An Anthology of Many Lives That being said, the oppourtunity to be able to read her new one had me over the moon with excitement This novel has a common, almost overdone, premise A young woman loses her memory, through a tragic accident, and then spends the rest of the novel trying to put together the missing pieces In Last Summer however, there are so many twists and turns that this novel is neither boring nor predictable Lonsdale s characters are always intensely human They have an innocence and a naivet , yet also a fierce bravery and strength Ella Skye is no different a woman with many flaws and a passionate heart who is desperate to reconnect with her beloved husband The novel is told in sequence for the most part there are occasions where Ella reflects on how she met her husband and how their relationship has gotten to this point , which contributes to the easy flow of the novel The storyline is powerful, and the message is both intensely dark, yet powerfully dramatic, weaving a tale of the lengths one goes to to keep and protect the one they love Fans of Everything We Keep will adore this novel, but it is most definitely a standalone work There are so many twists and turns before the ending of Summer , that readers will have all of their assumptions turned on their heads It wraps up in a nice little package, but it will take you on heck of a ride to get there.

    I ve been a huge fan of KL s books since her debut and this book is such a big departure from her books, but in a really awesome way Her other books have been solidly Women s Fiction and this was much edgier and much sexier than her previous books and I loved every single page.This was basically the definition of a binge read for me, I was supposed to be buddy reading it with my friends Chelsea and Jamie and ended up tearing through it because I seriously could NOT put it down It was such a fast and well paced read, full of shocks and surprises that I finished it on record time because I was just as eager to learn what happened last summer as Ella was.Memory loss is nothing new in books but KL manages to put her own unique spin on it that was totally unexpected and incredibly fascinating Besides that angle, you have this surprisingly steamy side that I wasn t expecting at all, but I really loved it and felt like it gave the whole thing a really cool edge I m always impressed when authors try something new from their usual style and I m so impressed by what KL did here This was a highly entertaining and wildly addictive read that is perfect for summer Last Summer in three words Compulsive, Sexy and Tense

    My thanks to the author, the publisher and NetGalley for an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review.LAST SUMMER twists and turns and leaves you with a dropped jaw at the end of your reading journey. The story opens with Ella Skye conducting an interview with a famous actress, who reveals that she knows the secret to erasing your sorrowful past memories Right away, I was on the alert when, in the next chapter, I read that Ella has lost not only her memory, but a baby as well Damien is perturbed and solicitous Can Damian be trusted And what about Nathan Donovan how does he seem to know her so well Ella becomes determined to investigate her own past and find out exactly what happened to her, hoping to remember the events leading up to her tragic memory loss I don t want to go into any further details about the plot, because it would just mean one spoiler alert after the other.I will say this though when I reached the conclusion of this novel, I can t say that I liked the main characters very much, and the ending left me a tad dissatisfied Kerry Lonsdale s fans will not be disappointed with this fast paced, twist filled read.

    This book was frustrating and good at the same time Nothing really happens the first 60 70% and then it finishes strong The main character irritated the living shit out of me too many times but I enjoyed the twists near the end A quick summer read Read on Audible with Kindle Unlimited.

  10. says:

    This book was such an unexpected surprise it was a psychological thriller a domestic suspense a twisted relationship tale and to be honest having just finished it in one sitting I am in both shock and awe Last Summer is different but it s still a dark twisted tale that has you questioning every characters motive and quickly reading to try to unlock the next piece of the puzzle.The mystery of this story kept me interested and intrigued and I was amazed with the character and plot development This is a cleverly plotted book and keep me glued to the pages Everyone in the novel seems to be hiding a huge secret but I really didn t figure out the ending That was a twist for me This was an amazingly entertaining read and will be picking up many books from Ms Lonsdale Thank you NetGalley, Kerry Lonsdale and Lake Union Publishing for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review all opinions are my own.
