Bravo, Kerry Lonsdale!
Last Summer by author Kerry Lonsdale grabbed me from the first and I could not stop reading until I had finished the whole book. I urge those who want to read this amazing psychological suspense to skip reading reviews which may hold hints or spoilers.
So, how will I write a review you may ask? Very carefully! You want the twists of the plot to shake you because it is very emotional. This book is about loving someone enough to put aside your own dreams for their comfort in life. It is also about an enormous miscommunication between Ella and Damien which sets up the couple for secrets and future heartaches.
Ella has been in an accident and wakes up in a hospital but does not remember certain parts of her life. Something has happened to her during her recovery time in the hospital which has robbed her memory of the most horrific event, an accident and the death of her unborn son. She can not feel guilt because she does not remember being pregnant or even wanting a baby. Ella discovers she and Damien loved and named the baby boy Simon. So, why does she not have any maternal memories of this baby? There is more than one answer, but you must discover how deeply the deceptions and manipulations by loved ones can make a huge difference in a persons life choices. As Ella recovers and starts a new feature project to interview a man of mystery, fragments of memories began to shatter her heart.
The ending left me breathless!
