Pub Week Book Review: One Last Summer by Kate Spencer

by Krista

❥ Thank you for the free book, BookSparks and author Kate Spencer.


Clara Millen’s life is spiraling out of control: her dream job is a nightmare, she’s resoundingly single, and it’s been years since she’s taken some time off. Thankfully, the last problem she can fix—this year she’ll join her friends on their annual summer vacation to their beloved childhood sleepover camp for a much-needed escape.

But when Clara arrives at Pine Lake Camp, she faces yet another unwelcome change: the owners are retiring and selling the property. The news turns her plans for revelry into a night of reminiscing . . . and prompts a surprise heart-to-heart between Clara and Mack, her old camp nemesis and constant competitor, who’s still just as annoying (and annoyingly handsome).

Soon the campfires aren’t all that’s throwing off sparks. And when one wildly passionate night turns into two (then too many to count!), Clara begins to wonder if she and Mack could have a future together. But when Clara’s boss finally offers her everything she’s worked so hard for, Clara will need to decide if the life she’s always wanted is the life that makes her feel truly alive.


This bright cover has summer read written all over it! Pick up this book if you enjoy women’s fiction with a side of second chance romance.

The story was quick and light, with interesting characters and a picturesque camp setting. I actually enjoyed the friendships and nostalgia more than the romance between Clara and Mack. I would have liked a touch more chemistry between them. I was pleased with the personal growth and the ending.


Did you go to summer camp when you were a kid?
