This book is easy to fall in love with, it’s delightfully warm and captivating, with gripping notes of intrigue. Saskia returns to her grandparents home of Rosewood after two years spent avoiding her family, can she survive a golden wedding anniversary celebration intact, or will devastating secrets be revealed? Each chapter is headed by excerpts from books or diaries written by Saskia’s grandfather Nathanial. The rest of the family spill out from the pages and make their presence known, while Rosewood sits encircling them all within loving walls. Sophie Pembroke spins a mystery into an enthralling web, human frailties exist yet don't overpower, and stunning vintage dresses waft across the pages. ‘The Last Days of Summer’ is so very readable and engaging, so it’s the perfect companion to steal away with for a few hours. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

The Last Days of Summer by Sophie Pembroke

'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 this summer The only feel good summer read you'll need, The Last Days of Summer is perfect for fans of Harriet Evans, Debbie Johnson and Lucy Diamond. 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?

'You know you've found a great book when you are left with a warmth in your heart and a smile on your face!' - @Mommyreading (Twitter)

'Room for Love turned out to be just as delicious and enjoyable as the cover. I absolutely LOVED it! It was sensational and I would definitely love to read more from the lovely author. She definitely has a smooth way with words, and Nate was just one of the many delights of this story.' - Becca's Books
