I love that the places in this book were brought to life clearly, they being almost characters in themselves, but without long, dragging descriptions. Kinley's orchard has its own charm, and you love reading the romance that unfolds there.
And of course I fell in love with the oh-so-charming Rylan, and with Rylan and Kinley together. Theirs is a sweet and funny romance with plenty of chemistry. And even more than in previous books, the secondary characters come to life and add another layer of depth and interest.
Annette's writing style is quick and easy to read, her descriptions and characterizations honest and human and spot on. The pacing never drags, as the characters drive the story along, pulling you and your heartstrings right along with them. I can't get enough of them.
Keeping Kinley swept me along in Larsen’s story world. I felt as if I experienced the story firsthand. Everything was just right. Just the right amount of description and angst and duty and family and farm animals. I was heartbroken over the burnt orchard, and I was cheering for Kinley through each of her struggles. Her desire to learn to read impressed me as did her work ethic. I loved that Rylan made her a priority and that they were truly good friends from the start. It is a universal truth that we are often influenced by the smallest of things, and Rylan and Kinley’s childhood encounter surely challenged and changed each of them in different ways.
A delightful read from start to finish, and I read it in one sitting. When it was over, I wanted more. How refreshing to have such a clean read about interesting people. It was truly heartwarming and renewed my faith in human nature.
I received a copy of this book through the Kindle Scout program.

Well written, highly recommended.
This book --Keeping Kinley is just as wonderful. All of her other characters from previous books are woven into this one and it is delightful to see where they are and how they have progressed. When Kinley and Rylan first meet they immediately become friends. Despite the fact that they are from two extremely different social circles they enjoy each other's company. Children can ignore society's structure. But when they meet as adults and still feel the happiness of being in each other's company complications arise.
But this does not keep Rylan from spending his free time with Kinley in her beloved orchard. Their friendship becomes something deeper and more exciting. But a tragic accident and a grave misunderstanding place doubts into Kinley's heart. Crossing social stations is frowned upon as well as persecuted. Can their love change and overcome that?
The journey that each character takes as they plunge into uncertainties and problems is real. Feelings are well-described and well-developed. Ms. Larsen does an exceptional job of leading the reader right along with Kinley and Rylan as they work through difficult challenges and unexpected danger. I loved this sweet and romantic but clean and inspiring book -- a strong five stars for an excellent read!!!
