Last Summer by Kerry Lonsdale Review

Thank you to Amazon Publishing and Lake Union Publishing for my gifted copy of Last Summer  by Kerry Lonsdale. This title is out now!

This was my first read by Kerry Lonsdale and I can assure you it will not be the last! What a ride! I dived into this novel without knowing much about the synopsis and although there were parts where I wanted to scream at the main character to force the answers she wanted out of the two men in her life, I loved that it created an element of mystery. I was also obsessed with figuring out the storyline and the way it all came together was mind-blowing.

Like I said, some of the characters' actions were questionnable sometimes but when all the facts and events are laid out in front of you, it all makes sense. This was simply an incredible story with equal parts of mystery and romance. Following her accident, Ella wakes up with no recollection of being pregnant and no memories of her unborn son, Simon. Her search for answers is heartbreaking and I simply can't imagine going through a loss like this and not being able to remember. I don't want to risk saying more so I'll leave it at that but I definitely recommend this book! You will not regret the read!

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Here's a quick synopsis:
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.
