I can’t wait to read THIS SUMMER by Katlyn Duncan when it releases this July. It looks like the perfect summer read – and not just because of its title. I can’t wait to see what Hadley and Lily do to make it a summer to remember. And I am so curious to find out what secrets Will is keeping, why he returned to town, whether Hadley finds out the truth and whether they will get a happy ending together if she does.
I also am stoked to be able to share the super cute trailer for the book and a guest post in which Hadley and Lily share their Top “Summer to Remember” Must Haves.
If you haven’t yet heard of this upcoming New Adult release from Author Katlyn Duncan, the book’s description is below. And if you haven’t yet “met” the author, her details and places to find her online are also below.
But first, here’s the THIS SUMMER Trailer. I love it, but what do you think?
The Guest Post
Hadley and Lily’s Top ‘Summer to Remember’ Must Haves
Hadley: Hey everyone. My best friend, Lily, and me are going to tell you our top must haves for this summer.
Lily: This girl is headed to college in the Fall and it’s our last summer together before “growing up”. I’ll start! My number one is boys.
Hadley: (eye roll)
Lily: What? Boys are important for a summer to remember. And now that we’re both single we can have a little fun with them.
Hadley: Are you done?
Lily: Fine. What’s your number one?
Hadley: (grins) My best friend.
Lily: Oh! And a job working with your best friend.
Hadley: Yes that too.
Lily: (pauses dramatically) And on a serious note…sunscreen.
Hadley: UV protection is important.
Lily: I was thinking more along the lines of awful tan lines.
Lily: Next is…parties. And oh! Older brothers who can get supplies for parties, if you know what I mean.
Hadley: Oh my God…
Lily: So we have boys, best friends, a job WITH a best friend, sunscreen, parties, brothers, what else?
Lily: That counts as a job with your best friend.
Hadley: Camp should be a category of its own—
Lily: Here we go…
Hadley: But without camp we wouldn’t have had the best summers of our lives. And we will be a part of making that happen for the kids.
Lily: Yeah. I’m still sticking with boys.
Hadley: You’re hopeless, but I do love you! Well that does it, everyone. Be sure to make this summer, a summer to remember. And comment below with your must haves I’d love to hear them!
About This Summer
Before college, before responsibilities, Hadley Beauman and best friend Lily are determined to have a summer to remember. There will be all the usual dramas – ex-boyfriends who don’t seem to know what ‘ex’ means, pesky younger brothers with unrequited crushes, but what Hadley didn’t anticipate was the out-of-the-blue return of the seriously hot boy-next-door, Will Carson. The boy who broke her heart when he skipped town two years ago.
Will may have shot up a foot and filled out (oh yes), but inside he carries the weight of guilt – for leaving, for coming back… Now he’s just passing through to tie up loose ends but it’s clear the old chemistry still crackles between him and Hadley. Trouble is, it’s built on two years of lies…
This summer might just be the best time of their lives, but is Hadley ready for everything to change – again?
