Hook . . .
Em Reed's life is complicated enough-thank you very much. As a single mother struggling to take over the family fishing guide business, she yearns to make her beloved father proud. He is the only man she trusts-the only one who has been there for her through every heartache.
Line . . .
And the last thing she needs is to fall for some brainiac writer who is only in town temporarily. Even if he does bear a fascinating resemblance to the King of Rock 'n Roll-the only man who still rocks her world.
And Sinker . . .
But as her life takes a horrific turn for the worst and her father is accused of a brutal crime, can she keep her family together, her father from confessing to save the love of his life, and her own heart safe?
Or is Elvis a Keeper?

Surprisingly sweet and complex journey for Em and Vance with a little suspense thrown in. A great balance to keep you turning the page as you want all of the characters to find the happiness that they deserve. Jane and Lila, the two little girls, steal the show several times but add so much honesty to the reality of being a single parent and the wish for children to have that second parent back in their lives, no matter who it might be. Em feels like a failure at relationships after her husband leaves following the birth of their daughter Jane. When Vance shows up on her boat for a fishing excursion, he captivates her since he looks like Elvis, her idol, while stirring emotions she thought long dead. Vance is searching for himself. Having wrote a successful novel several years ago, he hasn’t written another one since so his brother sends him on a trip to do some soul searching. He never expected to have a fisherwoman push all of his buttons and open us his heart. Can these two broken souls open themselves up to find happiness?
Anyone familiar with my blog in the slightest surely knows how I feel about Shauna Allen and her writing. She is an amazing romance writer. I decided I was going to read something outside of the Cupid Chronicles and selected Elvis Is a Keeper. This is a mystery romance and was a charming read. Her characters were affable and quirky. I enjoyed the fact that Em Reed was a huge Elvis fan and that one day her customer, Vance turned up and was an Elvis look a like...except a brown eyed Elvis. I also liked the spin on the Mason's and how they were represented as brothers and family. When one member was in trouble, they were all feeling that pain and needed resolution. I think the storyline was pretty unique and interesting. The only problem I encountered was the sharp change in point of view within the chapter from one character to another and it sometimes took a minute to realize the point of view was that of a different character. Once I adjusted to this, I found myself involved in a very satisfying read.
