About the book – from Goodreads: Sean looked out over the lake, squinting against the sunlight. He turned to me, his expression sobering as his eyes flicked over my face in a silent study.

“Come on Amy, I saved you once, I’ll save you again.”
I met his stare unflinchingly. “I don’t need saving.”
A wicked grin formed slowly. “Don’t you?”

After a rebellious summer night that almost claimed her life, Amy Henderson – the Onslow publican’s only daughter – is sent away to suffer a fate far worse than any other punishment:

Boarding School.

Three years on, a now nineteen-year-old Amy returns to Onslow for the summer. What once was a cauldron of activity with live bands, hot meals and cold beers, the Onslow Hotel now lies dark, deserted and depressing. All fond childhood memories of loitering on the hotel stairs and eavesdropping on customers’ colourful conversations are in the distant past.

How had her dad let it come to this?

With the new threat of putting the Onslow up for sale, Amy reluctantly turns to a local tradesman for help: Sean Murphy, the very same Onslow boy who saved her life all those years ago. With his help and that of some old friends, the task is clear: spend the summer building the hotel back up to its former glory or lose it for good.

In an endless summer, Amy soon realises that sometimes in order to save your future, you have to face your past, even if it’s in the form of a smug, gorgeous Onslow boy.

Please enjoy the following excerpt from An Endless Summer.

“How old are you now, Amy?” he asked. “Eighteen?”

I straightened. “Nineteen.”

He nodded, in deep thought. “So you’re nineteen, it’s Friday – soon to be Friday night – and you’re basically the gatekeeper of the local pub and yet there’s nothing to laugh about?”

“It’s a burden,” I said, “not a never-ending party.”

Sean sealed the lid on his esky and tapped it into place.

“Well, that’s because you’re not doing it right.”

“So what? What would your advice be, hmm? Invite some friends over, get hammered, have a lock-in and pash someone in a dark alcove somewhere?”

Sean smiled and exposed a brilliant line of straight, white teeth. “Exactly.” He gathered his esky and started to walk towards his car.

“See you tonight, Henderson. I’ll be the one loitering in a dark alcove somewhere,” he teased.

“Very funny.”
