Pawns In The Game
Everything We Left Behind by Kerry Lonsdale is a smashing psychological thriller. It continues the story begun in Everything We Know. The opening repeats the ending from book one.
The first book focused on the action from the point of view of Aimee. This one focuses on Carlos, moving into the future as well as recounting the past.
The plot line is excellent, alternating between the past and present, enabling the reader to fill in some of the gaps.
Once again, the main theme is family. Family may be mixed up but family ties bind and love covers all.
Picking Up The Pieces
Everything We Keep by Kerry Lonsdale is a fabulous contemporary novel about love and loss and life. I dived into the action and ‘lived’ through the book.
The plot is comprehensively constructed. I had no idea where it would lead at times, but held on as it twisted this way and that.
Relationships and family can be complicated as shown in the story. All is not always as it seems.
People can be motivated by money and power. “Money speaks louder than words.” Money enables secrets to be kept and lies to be spoken.
