Review for Last Summer by Kerry Lonsdale

Kindle Edition, 297 pages
Expected publication: July 9th 2019 by Lake Union Publishing

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…

Ella wakes up in the hospital after a car accident, 5 days later she remembers nothing about being pregnant and nothing about the accident.  The husband, Damien, wouldn’t answer her questions.   Her work assignment, Nathan, has his own story to tell about them.    There is so much going on, yet it comes together perfectly.  

I read this book in a state of shock.   There are so many things that made my jaw drop, made me wonder what the characters were thinking, and how the heck would this story end.    I’m not sure any of the characters had an idea of how their actions would affect each other.  If they did it didn’t seem that they cared.    I’m not even sure they knew how their actions would affect themselves.    It is scary that all three of the main characters had the potential to become parents and they would be responsible for another person.      
Last Summer is a book that I enjoyed, I was intrigued by the suspense of how it would all come together.   The characters were tough to relate to, the storyline was easy to read although it was sometimes a little confusing, and the ending left me shaking my head.
