Everything We Keep by Kerry Lonsdale ~ My Thoughts


Everything We Keep

Everything We Keep by Kerry Lonsdale
Series: Everything We Keep #1
Print and ebook, 306 pages
Published August 1st 2016 by Lake Union Publishing

A luminous debut with unexpected twists, Everything We Keep explores the devastation of loss, the euphoria of finding love again, and the pulse-racing repercussions of discovering the truth about the ones we hold dear and the lengths they will go to protect us.

Sous chef Aimee Tierney has the perfect recipe for the perfect life: marry her childhood sweetheart, raise a family, and buy out her parents’ restaurant. But when her fiancé, James Donato, vanishes in a boating accident, her well-baked future is swept out to sea. Instead of walking down the aisle on their wedding day, Aimee is at James’s funeral—a funeral that leaves her more unsettled than at peace.

As Aimee struggles to reconstruct her life, she delves deeper into James’s disappearance. What she uncovers is an ocean of secrets that make her question everything about the life they built together. And just below the surface is a truth that may set Aimee free…or shatter her forever.

My thoughts about Everything We Keep ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"On our wedding day, my fiancé, James arrived at the church in a casket."

This book had me hooked from that very first line. What? The guys comes to his wedding in a casket? I just had to keep reading to find out more. And then, as I kept reading, I became emotionally involved in these character's lives. This was the perfect book to binge read over the weekend.

Aimee tries to get on with her life, tries to carry on after the devastating news of her fiancé's death. Somethings just don't feel right to her and she has a hard time letting go and moving on. And then the secrets start surfacing, lots of secrets.

I loved Everything We Keep and I'm jumping right into the sequel, Everything We Left Behind. Kerry Lonsdale is going on my list of must-read authors after this series—I love them!

I received a copy of Everything We Keep in exchange for my honest opinion.
