The Summer Of Perfect Mistakes

By Cynthia St. Aubin

Published: June 2024

  • With an intoxicating mix of slow burn and spice comes a small town romance from the author of Nevermore Bookstore, which fans can't get enough of:

    'This read sucked me in from the beginning. I loved every second of it.'⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    From falling apart to falling in love

    No-one in Spring Valley recognises Lark Woodley anymore. They only remember who she used to be. But Lark knows that her once-perfect life wasn’t really perfect, and in one evening…she lost it.

    Now Lark’s trying to pick up the pieces. The only bright spot in her life is an art class taught by Nick Hoffman – the esoteric and unreasonably hot guy from high school. Suddenly Lark’s world is brightening up, from late-night apple pie with chocolate ice cream to an increasingly spicy situationship with Nick.

    But what she’s found comes with a ‘best before summer’s end’ expiration date. And Lark doesn’t know if she can ever truly let go of aiming for perfect.

    Perfect for fans of:
