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.

Aimee should be happy on her wedding day. Instead she is planning her fiancé, James’, funeral. Her whole world is spiraling out of control. A woman approaches Aimee and tells her James is still alive. Aimee doesn’t believe her and thinks she is a fraud out to get something. After several unexplainable events, Aimee starts to wonder if James really could still be alive.

Aimee is trying to move on with her life by opening a café. Her friends want her to start dating and clean out James’ clothes from her closet. Aimee has to make the decision herself. She needs to find where her heart is. Should she try to find out if James is alive or move on with her life? This decision could heal her or break her.

The book is written in first person point of view with flashbacks. The book is an emotional roller coaster and my feelings were all over the place. The book is well-written and the characters are developed. I recommend anyone who enjoys books on relationships and family dymanics.
