Title: THIS SUMMER
Author: Katlyn Duncan
Pub. Date: July 9, 2014
Find it: Amazon, Goodreads
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?

Your favorite summer ever and why?
I’d have to give a tie on this question. The two summers I worked for my local Parks Department were so special to me. It was one of my first jobs and those months created some memories to last a lifetime. I was teamed up with a fantastic staff and we had some amazing times. And while I didn’t really understand it at the moment, those memories are still fresh in my mind and offer a sense of nostalgia when I travel back to my hometown.
Last year I stumbled upon my old journals, detailing these summers and from that ‘This Summer’ started to take shape. While it’s very loosely based on my actual time spent working, I wanted to capture the feeling of summer and moving onto adulthood. Hadley is ready to move on with her life after high school and wants to have one last summer with her best friend but a blast from her past throws her for a loop. I infused the feelings of a summer romance (because who hasn’t had one of those?) with a rich summery background that will hopefully immerse the reader into that season. Because who doesn’t want the magic of summer to live on past August? I know I would!
