‘This is a compelling summer read which should be on everyone’s “to read” list’ - The Reading Shed Escape to the beautiful world of Rosewood Saskia has always loved Rosewood. It was her family home, her sanctuary and her memories of it are vividly alive even after two years of being absent. Never did she think she would be standing in the rose garden afraid to cross the threshold and own up to the past she had run away from. So much about Rosewood hasn’t changed, everyone still dresses for dinner, sips cocktails on the terrace, her father cooks every delicious meal and her beloved grandfather still tells spellbinding stories. But the cold reception from her grandmother, Ellie’s complete avoidance of her and the judgmental gaze of Edward, her grandfather’s new assistant (who seems to know more than enough about her past), are all new to Kia. All Kia needs to do is attend her grandparent’s Golden Wedding Party and make it to the train station without her secret coming out. What could possible go wrong in just one weekend? What reviewers are saying about The Last Days of Summer ‘The Last Days of Summer is a fantastic story of family, of intrigue and of those skeletons in the family closet you generally wish had been forgotten about.’ - Rachel’s Random Reads ‘I started to read this book and within the first few pages I was hooked. … The story unfolds seamlessly keeping the reader interested until all is revealed in the end. I can thoroughly recommend this book if you love a romance with mystery.’ – Andrea (NetGalley) ‘First book read by Sophie Pembroke and I finished it in pretty much one sitting! This has all the elements I like in a book: drama, romance, mystery, intrigue, and humor.’ – Angie (Goodreads) ‘an engaging novel that touches on the importance of familial dynamics, secrets, loss, forgiveness, love, the power of truth, and the importance of home. The characters are well-developed, complex, and flawed. And the plot builds nicely, unravelling piece by piece, keeping you captivated until the very end. This is a compelling story that, ultimately, reminds us that all our lives are sprinkled with a little bit of fiction.’ – What’s Better Than Books? ‘I loved the descriptions of Rosewood and its gardens, how I long for an English county house of my own!’ – For the Love of Books
