Oh. My. Goodness! I did not want to put this book down once I began it. What a great mixture of romantic discord and drama that leaves you wanting to keep turning the page. This story could happen to anyone and makes you think about what you would do in that situation then the ‘what ifs’ after you made a decision. Great book for a vacation getaway to read on the porch with your feet kicked up.
I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review.
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.
