Everything We Left Behind by Kerry Lonsdale

Don’t Miss Kerry Lonsdale’s newest Romantic Suspense Novel.

Everything We Left Behind, Coming 7/4/17

 

Everything We Left Behind is a fascinating story that captivated my attention from the very start.

For six years, after surviving an attempt on his life, James Donato from California lived in a dissociative fugue state. His brother, Thomas, assisted him in starting a new life. He set James up with a new identity, as Carlos Dominguez, an artist living in Mexico. Carlos, having no memory of his prior life as James, and no recollection of Aimee, the love of his life, married a Mexican woman. Although Carlos is now widowed, he’s content living with his two sons in Mexico; that was, though, until, Aimee showed up in his life, cracking his dissociative fugue state.

Carlos’s world comes apart when he learns that he is James Donato, a man from a crooked, untrustworthy family. Carlos is petrified for his family’s safety. James will have no memory of his life in Mexico, his children or Natalya. Carlos’s real fear, however, is what the Donato family will do to his sons. The family member who tried to kill him is due out of jail, soon. If James doesn’t know that he has sons, how will he protect them?

Carlos knows that his time is running out. The increase in vivid dreams and headaches are positive indicators that his true identity is trying to break through. So, Carlos starts to write his life down in excruciating detail for James. Carlos desperately wants James to know just how much Natalya and his sons mean to him.

Everything We Left Behind is about a man searching for who he is, letting go of what is no longer his, and finding acceptance and happiness in life once again. The story is told from both James and Carlos’s point of view. I was so engrossed in the character’s lives that I couldn’t put the book down. I loved everything about this novel and highly recommend giving it a read.

Thank you, Lake Union Publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it!

*Everything We Keep*by Kerry Lonsdale

Everything We Keep

Everything We Keep is an intriguing and entertaining romantic suspense novel.

Aimee thought that she had the perfect life. And she did; until the news of her fiancee’s death had reached her ears. Aimee was devastated, of course, but, to add to her distress, her fiancee’s mother insisted on having James’s funeral on the same day that they were supposed to have been married.

Aimee did her best to move on; she opened her dream restaurant, met new people; she even developed a close friendship with another man. But her heart was still stuck in the past. Aimee couldn’t help bouncing a crazy psychic’s words around in her head. “James is alive. He’s living in Mexico.”

Aimee’s friends tried to convince her that the psychic was a phony and only after her money. Aimee was not so sure about that. She never did see James’s body and things weren’t quite adding up. Against everyone’s advice, Aimee boarded a plane. What she found in Mexico, though, shocked her to the core, not to mention all of the lies and secrets that she unearthed while she was there. Aimee didn’t know who to trust anymore.

Kerry Lonsdale proves herself to be a talented storyteller. Everything We Keep is a captivating novel, crafted with a unique storyline, and a mixture of mystery and romance. The book could benefit, though, with a quick edit to remove unnecessary repetitions. All in all, I found Everything We Keep, an enjoyable read.

I received this ARC from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
