A Standalone Contemporary Romance Novel
NY Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Penelope Ward
When August Ends wasn’t what I was expecting. That isn’t good or bad. Just unexpected.
The relationship between Noah and Heather was not the norm or me in a Penelope Ward book. Normally, Penelope Ward’s characters have sizzling chemistry, and, for me, it was lacking in this couple. And yet, I still enjoyed them, because while the chemistry was lack luster for me, I love their friendship, I love the peace they brought each other. I enjoyed their moments together. There is enough chemistry that I bought Into them as a couple, but it wasn’t all consuming. It was a love built on something more.
What I loved most about the story, though, was the message behind it. The idea of living, exploring, grabbing moments in life while we can. The idea of loving who you love, looking for your person without care of social constraints. The examination of the reflection of guilt and how it haunts a person.
So while this wasn’t your standard Penelope ward novel, it was a beautiful journey of a slow burn love, a real world love, showcasing an exemplar couple who lives and explores the world together.

What do you do when a sexy, older man moves into your family’s summer rental?
Well, apparently, you make a fool of yourself—over and over. Things didn’t exactly get off on the right foot with Noah Cavallari. Our first encounter was embarrassing, to say the least.
But despite that, I found myself waking up every day with a newfound energy. Nothing exciting ever happened on the lake—not until Noah moved into the small boathouse on our property. He’d booked it for the entire summer…and I was still trying to figure out why.
When my mother became ill, I inherited the responsibility of making sure our guests were well taken care of. I should have been in college. Instead, I was living my best life…as a maid.
Dark, handsome, and mysterious, everything about Noah screamed forbidden.
I knew he was just passing through town for the summer.
I knew he was probably too old for me.
Yet, I was drawn to him.
Not to mention, he tried to save my life when he mistakenly thought I was drowning.
I wanted him and made no secret of it.
His own attempts to warn me away soon gave way to late-night moonlight chats by the lake. We were slowly easing into a friendship that was gearing up to explode into something I might not recover from.
Because he’s leaving at the end of the summer.
And I have no idea what I’ll do when August ends.
