About the Book:
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.
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 more books from Ms. Lonsdale.
