Announcing LAST CHANCE SUMMER by Shannon Klare!

Hi everyone! Surviving Adam Meade hit stores a little over a year ago and since then I’ve gotten several questions on what’s next? Will you write another book? What will it be about? When will I get to read it? Today, I finally get to answer those questions!!!!

After many months of hard work, too many tears, one broken computer, and so much anticipation, I get to announce Last Chance Summer!

If you loved the country romance feel of Surviving Adam Meade, this is most definitely the book for you.

Last Chance Summer centers around Alex Reynolds, a spunky high school senior with a less than stellar reputation. After an accident turns her world upside down, Alex is sent to her aunt’s summer camp for a chance at redemption. What she finds is a charming but rough around the edges co-counselor named Grant. With her future hanging in the balance, Alex must find a way to work with Grant and survive the summer. If she can’t, she might end up worse than where she began.

Swoon. I wrote Last Chance Summer at least three times, and over the course of working on it I fell absolutely in love with Alex and Grant. Fun fact: Last Chance Summer also happens to take place in Texas (my home state) and is the first book I’ve written that takes place here. That being said, this book also holds a special place in my heart because of how much I can relate to these people and the setting they’re in.

I could go on and on about how much I love this story and how much I think you’ll love it too, but instead I want to give you one more piece of exciting news. Drumroll…..

Sigh. It’s gorgeous. The colors are perfect for summer, and the cover image is absolutely befitting of Camp Kenton! I could literally see Alex and Grant standing on the edge of the lake, watching the sun go down.

Ah! I wish I could funnel all my emotions and excitement into this post, but I don’t even have the words to express how thrilled I am for y’all to read this story! May 26, 2020 can’t come soon enough!

In the meantime, if you’d like to pre-order Last Chance Summer you can find it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, IndieBound, Powells, Target online, and more.

Happy reading!
