Help us celebrate the release of One Distant Summer by Serena Clarke, Author!
One summer can change everything.
Jacinda Prescott spent one life-changing summer in Sweet Breeze Bay, New Zealand, and left disaster in her wake. Since then, she’s thrown herself into her music career, and her life in LA. But when the price of fame threatens to become more than she’s willing to pay, the distant bay calls her back.
Liam Ward walked away from everything he knew after the death of his talented brother, the guy Jacinda loved and lost. When he finally returns to the bay, looking for closure, she’s the last person he expects to find—and the last woman he should fall for.
Stuck as neighbors for the summer, their off-limits attraction is hotter than the South Pacific sun. But the secret that ties them together is the one thing that could destroy her career, and break their hearts all over again…if they let it.

What an amazing emotional love story. ONE DISTANT SUMMER was my first Serena Clarke book, but it won’t be my last. I thoroughly enjoyed reading her writing style, the story flowed flawlessly. Her descriptions of the New Zealand beaches definitely makes me want to see them. I cannot wait to read more of her stories. Due to sexual content this novel is recommended for readers 18 and older! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book via IndieSagePR in exchange for an honest blog tour review.
