Tell me already! Those were the words constantly spinning through my mind as I read Last Summer.
Lifestyle journalist Ella Skye remembers the chance meeting with her husband, Damien; their rapid free fall into love; and their wedding. But she can’t remember the 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.
The opening words to my review were not words uttered in frustration, but words uttered in excitement. There is this underlying sense of mystery and secrecy throughout this book. This sense of intrigue kept me on the edge of my seat awaiting the answers. I needed answers, absolutely had to have them right now! For this reader, that is one of the signs of a good mystery and the key to keeping me hooked.
I’m sure some of you will figure out the hows and whys of this book, but I didn’t. There are several twists and while none of them made me sit back and say “WOW!”, they were impressive and had me putting down my Kindle for a minute to catch my breath. Last Summer is well done and is sure to thrill the lovers of mystery out there. This was my first Lonsdale novel and it certainly won’t be my last.
NetGalley provided me with an advanced copy of this book.
