Last Summer is a searing story of love, lies, and deceit.
Ella Skye is a lifestyle journalist living in San Francisco with her handsome and successful husband, Damien. She vividly recalls every celebrity she has ever interviewed, every politician she charmed, and every socialite who eyed her with envy. She remembers her chance meeting with Damien, how quickly they fell in love, their intimate wedding, and, in particular, one conversation before their wedding about their individual dreams for the future.
What she can’t remember is the tragic car accident that ended her pregnancy. Or even being pregnant.
Damien is distant, seemingly devastated at the loss of their unborn son, Simon. As Ella recovers from her injuries and searches for clues about the memories she has lost, she is assigned to conduct an interview with Nathan Donovan, an adventurer and retired reality tv star, who seems to know more about her than she does about him. And the feelings Ella develops for Nathan seem eerily familiar, even though Ella recalls nothing about their prior encounter.
To unravel the mystery behind her selective memory loss, Ella follows Nathan from the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains to the frozen slopes of southeast Alaska where she discovers the people she trusts most aren’t the only ones keeping secrets from her — she’s hiding them from herself.
Ella learns that some truths are best left forgotten. . . . Or are they?
