    About "Kerry Lonsdale"

      • Kerry Lonsdale

        Kerry Lonsdale Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Everything We Left Behind book, this is one of the most wanted Kerry Lonsdale author readers around the world.


    1. *If you haven’t read the first book in the series yet then proceed with caution. There will be minor spoilers from Everything We Keep below and I’d hate to ruin anything for you!Once again, Kerry Lonsdale has created characters that dance off the page and into our hearts, solely for the purpose of making us feel all of the things. I wasn’t quite sure where she was going to take this next book after finishing Everything We Keep last year. Would we continue to follow Aimee and Ian’s story, [...]

    2. Do not read this book without reading the first. Just don't. You'll be lost. I got confused on occasion having read the first one just because it's been some time. This book was a little too heavy on the romance and back and forth between lovers for my personal taste, a little too heavy-handed. I did enjoy finding out more details about James and Carlos though, and learning more family secrets. I didn't find it very suspenseful, more an outlandish family drama. If you like soap operas, you'll pr [...]

    3. I have wanted to read Everything We Left Behind since the last page of Everything We Keep. To say I was impatiently waiting for this book is an understatement! This book is everything I hoped for and more. In Everything We Keep, James Donato was presumed dead right before his wedding to Aimee. Aimee had to learn to live her life without James. In Everything We Left Behind, James has to learn to live after being in a fugue state for over 6 years. It tells the story from alternating chapters of Ja [...]

    4. All of my reviews can be found on novelgossip4.5/5I’ve been dying to read this book since the first one ended in a massive cliffhanger, it’s easily one of my most anticipated books of the year and I’ve become a huge fan of Lonsdale’s work. Knowing I would finally get to hear James side of the story had such a strong appeal to me as I just knew it would be utterly fascinating. The entire idea of a dissociative fugue is crazy interesting to me, can you even imagine waking up one day and ha [...]

    5. Wow!!! What a book!! Can this story get any better? It sure did! This picks up right where Everything We Keep left off, and once again Kerry Lonsdale's writing kept me captivated from the very beginning. I loved James'/Carlos' story. I felt the torment, rage, confusion that he was going through. This page-turner is a must read this summer!! Now I must be patient for the next one coming July 2018. Cannot wait!A big thank you to Kerry Lonsdale and Lake Union Publishing for an advanced copy of this [...]

    6. Everything We Left Behind is compelling suspense, a riveting story about making peace with your past, a story about a man trying to find his true family. James has been living in a fugue state after being traumatized at the hands of his brother; for the past seven years, James has been living in Mexico as Carlos, father of two young sons and in love with Natalya. When James emerges from the fugue, he is confused and heartbroken, the family he'd loved are now strangers to him, and he's still in l [...]

    7. Do NOT read this review (or even the synopsis of the book), until you've read Everything We Keep. This novel contains major SPOILERS for its predecessor. If you're not planning to read Everything We Keep (even though you totally should because it was incredible and an instant favorite of mine in 2016), then, by all means, go ahead with this one. However, it will definitely make more sense if you read Everything We Keep first.SPOILERS ahead. (Come back after you've read Everything We Keep)If you' [...]

    8. The moment I finished reading EVERYTHING WE KEEP, I was desperate to know what happened to James. In this stunning sequel, we find out. Deftly told through two points of view--from what appears initially to be two different characters--this is a unique story about one man trying to find himself. As with EVERYTHING WE KEEP, this is part suspense, part romance, part family drama, but underneath the intrigue and the twists of how and why the hero lived in a fugue state for six years, is a simple th [...]

    9. I was provided an ARC of this book through NetGalley for my honest reviewWhat a phenomenal, heart-wrenching, incredible story. Imagine you wake up not knowing who are. The people around you assure you that you belong to them, and you happily rebuild your life. Years later, you find out that you were someone else entirely who you don't remember because of some psychological trauma that caused you to live the life you are currently living in a fugue state. And at some point, that fugue will lift, [...]

    10. I liked this one less than Everything We Keep, the first in the series, and I doubt I'll be back for the third installment next year.I'm still not a fan of rounded eyes, ducking heads, or dipped chins. I found James & Carlos difficult, and the story dragged as it flashed back and forth in time and tense. While I accepted the need for suspension of disbelief in the first book, that need was harder to accept this time around. I found myself less patient with the Donato family than I was with A [...]

    11. After the way Everything We Keep finished, I just had to go straight into Everything We Left Behind.I really enjoyed this, but not quite as much as book one. I felt it had much less suspense than the first book, as large parts of this book covered Carlos and James’ point of view on things that happened in book one, that were experienced through Aimee in the first book, so there were less shocks and surprises. Some of it may just be that I naturally connected more with a female character, and t [...]

    12. 3.5 starsEverything We Left Behind is the sequel to Everything we Keep. In Everything we Keep, we hear Aimee's story of love and loss. How she was informed her finance was dead to then have doubts and eventually find him alive but living in a fugue state. Her finance James, does not remember her and believes himself to be Carlos. He has married, adopted his wife's son and fathered another son with her. Although his wife is dead, he has no recollection of Aimee who is heartbroken and feels as tho [...]

    13. 4.5/5As soon as I finished Everything We Keep, I started reading this book. I loved the first one, but when I realized the second book would be featuring James/Carlos, I was all in. His story seemed so mysterious and after the first book had that crazy ending, I just had to know more about…what happened in Mexico.You need to know that Everything We Left Behind is a true sequel to Everything We Keep, which means that you shouldn’t read it without reading the previous book first. Otherwise: sp [...]

    14. I know what you are thinking, Michael you just praise this book! I have grown more picky over the years, usually I like to see where the story is going, just in case I may miss something. However, when the story did not pull me in as it progressed then I lost interest. Now don't get me wrong, I really loved the first book of the series, that was one of the best books I read. However, this failed to match the predecessor, it was too much fluff but not enough meat. Have you ever had a cake that ha [...]

    15. While EVERYTHING WE LEFT BEHIND, the long-anticipated sequel to EVERYTHING WE KEEP, is page turning and suspenseful, at its center it is the story of a man struggling to discover the truth of his own identity. It is about a man who through a shocking sequence of events wakes from a fugue state to find that he has essentially lived two completely separate lives. Which one is real? Which one was invented and why? To learn the truth means diving right back into the same ocean of mystery, often terr [...]

    16. Wow, what an emotional rollercoaster. You MUST read book 1 before reading this one or you will have no clue what is going on.It's hard to review this one without spoilers. Let's just say the Epilogue at the end of book 1 sets you up for where book 2 is going, and I was anxious!.*typing**typing*.um, yeah, I keep deleting what I've typed because it is impossible to give any details.This was a well written book, and I was seriously pulling for Aimee and Ianbut they had so many crazy circumstances t [...]

    17. I have been turning pages as fast as I can all day today, needing to know everything about James/Carlos and the people he loved, and why he found himself in the situation he did. It was definitely a fast paced story, but one whose characters were well defined and who I came to care about deeply. I loved the settings, especially the scenes that took place in Hawaii, they were beautifully detailed and I could see James and his boys there. There was this very conflicted part of me that wanted to hu [...]

    18. REVIEWI would like to thank Lake Union Publishing, NetGalley, and Kerry Lonsdale for the ARC (Advanced Reading Copy) of "Everything We Left Behind" by Kerry Lonsdale for my honest review. The genres for this book are General Fiction(Adult), Women's Fiction, Mystery, Suspense with a touch of Romance.This is the sequel to "Everything We Keep". I like the way the author continues the story-line and plot. This story is narrated by the same man in two character roles,as James and Carlos. James was al [...]

    19. When I finished Everything We Keep last year, I was thrilled to find out there would be a sequel. That Aimee's story could continue. But I love what Kerry did in telling this whole story from James/ Carlos' point of view. Aimee is in the story, but rarely. It follows James in the present and Carlos while he was in his fugue state. And this book will make a lot more sense to you if you read Everything We Keep first. It won't work as a stand-alone.I'll admit I was confused at the beginning trying [...]

    20. This is the second part in what I understand will be a trilogy. I had read Everything We Left Behind awhile ago, but I very easily settled back into the story continuation of James/Carlos. The story alternates between then and now. Then, being when James was Carlos having suffered a fugue state and living in Oaxaca as a widowed painter raising 2 sons. Now, being California and Hawaii where Carlos is once again James, struggling to understand his identity. Most importantly, who can James trust? I [...]

    21. I have been anxious to read this book since I finished the last page of Everything we Keep last summer. Thanks to the author for an early copy to read and review. Everything we Left Behind was all I hoped for and more. Once I started it and I was back in the lives of these characters I didn't want to put it down until the end. Warning: you really need to read Everything We Keep BEFORE you read Everything we Left Behind.This book was mainly about James/Carlos life and how he coped after waking up [...]

    22. Kerry Lonsdale has done it again I have been waiting for this story to come back to me. The saga between Carlos (or is it James?) and Aimee continues in this absolutely fantastic work of fiction. The heartache and intrigue is palpable and you cannot tear yourself away from the pages. Just do yourself a favor and read this follow up to Everything We Keep. You family can fend for themselves for a day (that's all the time you'll need for this one).

    23. Now this one was a complete contrast with the first book. The characters were full of spirit and the storyline was very good.Continuing from the first (which is a must read before you get to this one) we continue our story of Aimee and how she is still trying to come to grips with her loss. James (the husband) has metamorphosed into Carlos and the confusion and anger is overwhelming. He is not dead and coming to terms with that is alone huge and naturally dramatic. Equally dramatic is that he is [...]

    24. *Read Everything We Keep before even looking at this book*Everything we left behind is Carlos's/James story. At the end of book one, we see Amiee finally letting go of James. Her husband to be who is no more. James is gone, and Carlos has his own life. After many years James emerges from his dissociative fugue to find he is living someone else's life. Everything he left behind is gone, and he is living in Oaxaca with his two boys. Carlos has everything James thought he wanted. He's an artist, li [...]

    25. Thankyou for the publisher for a copy of this book. This is the 2nd book in the trilogy. I had just finished Everything you keep, So, I was interested to see what happened to James. The story starts where the other story has left off. Carlos wakes up from Dream six years later to discover that he is not Carlos anymore but, James and where is he and who are these 2 boys in front of him. The eldest of the brings him a box with photos and a diary and a memory stick to tells him what happened to his [...]

    26. I couldn't wait to read this sequel! And Kerry did not disappoint. I personally hope that this story will continue and there will be a third story sometime soon down the road!The Donato family is nothing but trouble. Or so we think. James was trying to track Phil down after he harmed his fiance Aimee. What he didn't bargain for was being lost at sea and losing six years of his life as James and instead becomes Carlos. This all took place when he suffered from a dissociatic fugue and couldn't rem [...]

    27. I received an ARC of EWLB in exchange for an honest opinion. Here goes.I can't remember how I first discovered Kerry Longsdale last year, with her debut novel Everything We Keep, but I was beyond thankful I did. I absolutely devoured EWK, and it left me wanting so much more! I had to find out more - would Aimee stay with Ian, would she find her way back to James, what would James remember, how awful was James' family, really and so much more. Well, rest assured friends. Questions are answered - [...]

    28. I have so looked forward to reading Everything We Left Behind since finishing Everything We Keep, and it was such a good feeling to go on with the story of James Donato, Aimee and the continuing mystery of their lives. The anguishing struggle of James who is in a fugue state, who lives two lives, one as Carlos, an artist living in Mexico and in love with Natalya, and the knowledge that someday he would become James again is told in flashback chapters. The suspense is kept at a high level as each [...]

    29. Engaging story of a man, James, who can't remember who he is or anything about his life. A traumatic experience has put him in a fugue state where he's living as Carlos with a wife and two sons. This is the story of his journey back to himself - but when he becomes James again will he remember his sons, his wife, his life as Carlos? A very intricately written tale going back and forth from present day to the traumatic past. Introduction of a new character at the end foreshadows the next book. Al [...]

    30. 3.5 starsIt's difficult to review the storyline of Everything We Left Behind without providing spoilers for the first in the series Everything We Keep. Upon finising Everything We Keep I was eager to find out what Kerry Lonsdale had in store for her characters. As the first book was entirely from Aimee's perspective, I wondered if that would remain the case and that we'd get more of Ian's story in book 2, or whether we'd catch up with Jamie. It wouldn't have bothered me either way because I had [...]
