Book Tour: Summer’s Edge by Dana Mele | Spotlight

Welcome to my stop on the TBR and Beyond Tours Book Tour for Summer’s Edge by Dana Mele. I absolutely loved Dana Mele’s previous novel, People Like Us, and I’ve been eagerly awaiting her next book! Then it was pitched as I Know What You Did Last Summer meets The Haunting of Hill House and I now have high hopes lol. I’m hoping to share my thoughts soon. In the meantime, be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to see the tour schedule for other content creators and their links, where you can find their thoughts.

I Know What You Did Last Summer meets The Haunting of Hill House  in this atmospheric, eerie teen thriller following an estranged group of friends being haunted by their friend who died last summer.

Emily Joiner was once part of an inseparable group—she was a sister, a best friend, a lover, and a rival. Summers without Emily were unthinkable. Until the fire burned the lake house to ashes with her inside.

A year later, it’s in Emily’s honor that Chelsea and her four friends decide to return. The house awaits them, meticulously rebuilt. Only, Chelsea is haunted by ghostly visions. Loner Ryan stirs up old hurts and forces golden boy Chase to play peacemaker. Which has perfect hostess Kennedy on edge as eerie events culminate in a stunning accusation: Emily’s death wasn’t an accident. And all the clues needed to find the person responsible are right here.

As old betrayals rise to the surface, Chelsea and her friends have one night to unravel a mystery spanning three summers before a killer among them exacts their revenge.

Content warnings: murder, blood, references to (past) suicidal ideations and involuntary admission to a psychiatric hospital, trauma related to the death of a friend, a description of a dead animal (a rabbit), references to drowning, poisoning, fire, fear of sharks, and falling.
