Everything We Keep: A Novel Paperback – August 1, 2016 by
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.
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.
Worth Getting in Bed For? This is a spine-tingling debut. Your fiance disappears in a boating accident and he is believed dead, but is he? What would you do? There are many twists and turns in this one and that’s about all I can say without giving the story away except I would like to see a sequel as I suspect many fans do.
Lonsdale has created characters through Aimee and Ian, a new love interest, that you really care about. You want to know their story and I have to admit I have a big book crush on Ian. This is a great debut that will leave you wanting more.
