From the author of Everything We Keep comes the final novel in the Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestselling Everything Series. Brimming with suspense, mystery, and romance, Everything We Give brings to a powerful close the gripping series of love, lies, and the secrets families keep.
Award-winning photographer Ian Collins made only one mistake in life, but it cost his mother her freedom and destroyed their family, leaving Ian to practically raise himself. For years he’s been estranged from his father, and his mother has lived off the grid. For just as long, he has searched for her.
Now, Ian seemingly has it all—national recognition for his photographs; his loving wife, Aimee; and their adoring daughter, Caty. Only two things elude him: a feature in National Geographic and finding his mother. When the prized magazine offers him his dream project on the same day that Aimee’s ex-fiancé, James, returns bearing a message for Ian but putting a strain on his marriage, Ian must make a choice: chase after a coveted assignment or reconnect with a mysterious woman who might hold the key to putting his past to rest. But the stakes are high, because Ian could lose the one thing he holds most dear: his family. (Photo and Synopsis from Goodreads)
Thank you Kerry Lonsdale for sending me a free E-ARC in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.
I rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
I cannot go to in-depth with this review, as its book Three and the final one in the series, so I do not want to spoil anything. Last year I was introduced to this series via Ashley at Amazon Publishing. One I read the first book, I fell in love with Aimee and Ian. I have never wavered in my love for this series. I was so excited when I saw Kerry’s post on Instagram looking for early readers. I signed up ASAP.
Now onto this book. It was perfect. I appreciate when book series are wrapped up so well, with closure, and no lingering questions. Of the whole trilogy, this one is by far my favorite. This one was the total package. It had the love story, of course, but this wasn’t the just the love story of Ian and Aimee. This was the love story between a mother and son, and a father and son. “Everything We Give” also comes with some pretty gut wrenching heartbreak. There is some dark subject matter in this one. I don’t want to say what as it spoils the plot. But if you’re wanting this for a nice fluffy romance read, you’re going to get a lot more than that.
I am so in love with Kerry Lonsdale’s writing and story telling, that I will read anything she writes, even her grocery list. I cannot wait to see what she comes up with next. Her writing is captivating, and beautiful, and it flows so nicely. Once you pick it up, you cannot put it down. I read half of the book, the first time I picked it up. Well Done Kerry!
“Everything We Give” is out July 3rd I will include links below.
