    What was that? I was told this was a mystery It is not a mystery Everything We Keep is an extremely long winded getting over someone story complete with the logistics of opening a cafe and a boring romance Well two boring romances It's like After You except it doesn't follow on from a book that was actually goodAimee Tierney's fiancee James dies during a boating accident in Mexico She attends his funeral buries him and spends the next two years opening a new restaurant and refusing advances from guys who keep asking her out That's the fist two hundred pages of the book Aside from a strange encounter with a psychic at James' funeral who claims James is still alive nothing else happens for than half the bookIt took forever to go anywhere I cannot believe how many pages I sat through of Aimee talking about food and art and maybe opening a cafe and how she could date if she wanted to but she's not ready to let go of James Plus Aimee is a chronic blusher She is the standard blushing white romance novel heroine who feels her cheeks heating every time a guy talks to her Mention anything sexual and she's red from the roots of her hair down to her cough lady parts I lost count of how many times she blushedHow much do you want to read a slow tale of cafe management? Because that's a large percentage of this book In Part 2 we start to finally get somewhere as Aimee digs deeper into the possibility that James is still alive This takes us away from the cafe at last but it's still dull There is very little drama or tension no climax either Aimee's story simply seems to end with a shrug that says Oh well that's it thenThe problem is that the book isn't thrilling or fast paced enough to be a mystery but it also lacks the detailed characterization and excellent writing required for a successful family drama I am fine with slow character studies like A Spool of Blue Thread and Everything I Never Told You but Everything We Keep is nowhere near strong enough to sit among those either I found it to be a bland romance without a single memorable characterBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube
