Everything We Keep


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.

    While I didn't love this book, I do have to say that it had an original storyline and kept my interest. There were some highly predictable elements, but many things that also surprised me. The what di...

    My thoughts and feelings were a constant ebb and flow. One minute I was enjoying the story and the next I couldn’t stop rolling my eyes. I'll admit there were some great moments mixed in, things tha...

    I’m absolutely floored that this was a debut novel. Kerry Lonsdale writes with the confidence and precision of a seasoned author, and its quite clear I’m not the only one who thinks so. After nume...

    Every now and then, a book comes along where I start gleefully anticipating my Goodreads review. There was this Carolyn Hax advice column a while back where a man complained that he’d found out that...

    I should really begin this review by saying that I don't read a lot of mysteries or thrillers. As in, I just had to create a "mystery-thriller" shelf for this book, because I didn't have one. Recently...

    Preposterous. Absolutely preposterous. While I rate books on goodreads, this is the first time I have felt compelled to actually write a review and it is because this book is just so darn awful. The s...

    This book...I'm not sure how to review it. I mean, I didn't exactly hate it, but at the same time I kinda did. I'm not sure that makes any sense, but it's how I feel.It started out well enough, and th...

    Upon completing this book, it dawned on me the reason for its tedium and superficiality. It appears that the writer had, in her opinion, devised a very clever way to end a novel, but had no story to c...

    I was fortunate enough to receive an advance copy of EVERYTHING WE KEEP and wow. I inhaled it in two sittings while my life went on hold. It's hard to decide what I enjoyed most: Aimee's journey, the ...
