    I’ve had this book to preview since February and got right into reading it. I,was only able to get to a few chapters done and then life got in the way and I had to set it aside. Going forward to April and I finally got the chance to start reading again and I finished this absolutely, awesome book in two days. This is Kerry Lonsdale’s first stand-alone book since finishing the “Everything” series and Kerry just keeps getting better and bet...

    Ella wakes up in the hospital not being able to remember the car accident that cost her the life of her unborn baby, in fact, she can’t remember being pregnant at all. She tries to figure out the missing parts of her memory and she discovers secrets, lies, and betrayals along the way. The story kept my interest the whole time, I found the characters intriguing and I did not predict some of the turns and twists in the story. I could not put the ...

    Great googly moogly. That was such an amazing trip I just took. Come closer. I am going to admit something here. Generally, I know what I'm going to rate a book before I even finish it. A bit short-sighted, but whatever. They're my ratings to do with what I like. With this one, I loved the story, I loved the writing, I loved the characters, but something was bothering the heck out of me. And it was fact that this woman rightfully had so many ques...

    When Ella Skye wakes up in her hospital room, she doesn’t remember the accident that caused her to lose her baby—-in fact, she doesn’t remember being pregnant at all. This is the premise for Last Summer, an unputdownable, entertaining, and tantalizing book. Not only was I caught up in the twisty-turny suspense in this story, I was emotionally invested in the characters and the fact that love and pain were the catalyst for their intricate we...
  • Barbara White
    I was fortunate enough to read an early version of this manuscript. It is, without doubt, my favorite of Kerry's books: a rip-roaring adrenaline rush from the first page to the last. You don't know who to believe as the story--and hot sex scenes--unfolds with red herrings and whip-lash twists and turns which, although unexpected, make perfect sense. I have no doubt there will be comparisons to GONE GIRL, especially given the characters' personali...

    4.5 StarsThere is no better feeling then when I close a book and find myself unable to wipe the ear to ear grin from my face. Last Summer pushed me out of me comfort zone and took me on a twisty turning road, depositing me at a destination I didn't expect or suspect existed. Bravo Kerry Lonsdale! I was intrigued from page one and invested the whole way through.Last Summer is combination of women's fiction, domestic suspense and psychological thri...

  • Tanja ~ T's Book ~ KT Book Reviews
    This is one of those books that scare me when trying to write a review. I on’t want to spoil anything. Pretty much every review i’ve read on it thus far starts out with a recap of the synopsis, so I’m going to forgo that entirely and ask this…Do you like a mystery? Do you love the unpredictable? Do you need some suspense and a good side of intrigue in you escapism? Well then, GET THE BOOK! Stop reading reviews and start reading Last Summe...
  • Carol Boyer
    Wow!!! This book is incredible, so fascinating, it is unputdownable with twists that top one another till you don't know who or what to believe. When Ella wakes up in the hospital after a tragic car accident, she doesn't remember being pregnant or losing her son, and as she questions her husband, Damien, she is frustrated with his responses. She finds there are many things unknown that seems like she must have known and she is desperate to find o...

    YOU GUYS. One of my favorite authors, Kerry Lonsdale, was nice enough to let me have an ARC of her upcoming release, “Last Summer”. I cannot even tell you how excited this made me, as I have read (and loved) all of Kerry’s other books. If you haven’t read them, please go do so immediately. I’ll wait. And since we are still in the full swing of winter doldrums, this steamy beach read is a welcome distraction from the temperatures...Full ...

    I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars!I received the ARC of this book and pre-purchased a copy. I have read all of Kerry Lonsdale’s books and I think she is a gifted, wonderful author. This book is another gem to add to her collection.As I was reading the book, I thought I had the plot of the book figured out (turned out to be not true!). That was okay to me, since I usually am in this position to guess the outcome when I read the typ...

    LAST SUMMER by Kerry Lonsdale is an action-packed and riveting thriller that hooked me from the first pages and never let go. Once I started reading, it was impossible to put down. The unique and intriguing story line and the complex characters kept me guessing right up until the shocking ending. Just when I thought I had it figured out, the plot took unexpected twists and turns I could never have anticipated. I don’t want to say much about the...

    I want to thank Author Kerry Lonsdale, Netgalley & Lake Union Publishing for the arc of this novel.Wow, I really don't even know where to start.

    I was given a chance to read this book in exchange for an honest review. Let me start by saying I am not a stranger to Kerry's books. I love how she puts things out there that make you think about what you are reading and not figure out the ending in the first chapter. When I started reading this book it had me from the first page. Ella and Damien are captivating! They have a solid relationship and seem like the perfect couple. Then comes Nathan!...
  • Terren Hoeksema
    This isn't my first Kerry Lonsdale novel, nor do I doubt it will be my last. Like it's predecessors Last Summer was a riveting novel that kept me on my toes from page one. Psychological twists and turns, love, suspense all thrown into a masterly crafted work of literature. Ella faces memory loss after a terrible accident that leaves her without a child, Damien, her husband is by her side through it all. Both partners are high profile in their own...
  • Jennifer Newell
    I was given an advanced copy to read in exchange for an honest review. I have read every book written by this author, once again she has created a book you can not put down once you have started. The characters are so richly developed that you feel like you know them personally. This is a story about a young woman Ella who wakes up in a hospital and doesn’t know why she is there or what has happened to her. Ella has no memory of her accident or...

    I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.Kerry is a phenomenal author! This book was amazing from start to finish. I couldn't put it down! I was surprised so many times during the story and the ending completely caught me off guard! Kerry's books have a way of snagging you from the get go and don't let you go.

  • Kari
    I devoured this book!!! I loved the premise of this story and haven’t read a book like it! Ella, a journalist, wakes up in the hospital with selective memory loss. Her husband, Damien, is somewhat aloof and not willing to answer any of Ella’s questions. Months go by and she doesn’t recover. Then she gets a call from her boss regarding a story. Before her accident she had spent several days interviewing Nathan, a tv adventurist., but the sto...
  • Rachel Aimee
    Wow. This book was absolutely amazing. I've read many of Kerry londsdales books and but this may be by far my favorite. I couldn't put the book down once I started. So many times I thought I had everything figured out and i was so wrong. As always the characters are well thought out . They felt so real to me. I could feel the emotions and confusion Ella felt as she tried to find out the truth . Once I got to the last two chapters my heart was pou...
  • Vera
    HOLY MOLY! First, I typically will read a book this good in one go. This one I had to break down (still had it finished in under 48 hours) to give my heart time to process the emotions. Secondly, speaking of emotions, the layout of the story takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. Further hooking you. The flashbacks allow you to understand more of Ella's heart and allowing you to feel her on a deeper level. Lastly, the twist! Oh my the tw...
  • Bonnie
    Well done! I was hooked from the get-go. This spine-tingling read had elements of a mystery with a twist at the end. A seemingly perfect couple had elements of some distrusts which may have brought on the actions that took place throughout this book. At times, I was led to believe that it was another person who not to trust, and then low and behold, it turns out to be someone else. I don't want to give anything away. Trust me, if you like a good ...
