Last Summer by Kerry Lonsdale is a Women’s Contemporary Fiction full of mystery, love, and tragedy.

42303291._SY475_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.

If you love a good mystery while also diving into women’s fiction, this book may be up your alley!

At first, we are introduced into an intense scene between a woman who lost her memory and her husband on the sidelines. Both are trying to figure out what is going on, and we are immediately thrown into this mystery behind her condition.

I was pretty intrigued to find out what events led up to her in the hospital. The author brings in different timelines to help us uncover the truth, and for the most part, it wasn’t too easy to find out.

About two-thirds of the way through, I was able to piece it all together, but it still was really fun to watch it all unfold.

There are different aspects of romance with not too much steam (so don’t go into this one wanting an intense romance). We see the relationship form between her and her husband (who I wasn’t a fan of in the least).

In the end, I gave this one 4 out of 5 stars. I loved more of the second half of the book with all the character development while the first half is more of the mystery portion.

I’d recommend this one for a weekend read in a cabin deep in the woods. It’s the perfect, cozy book for the upcoming changing weather.
