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.

Rylan, the love interest, was a bit too perfect, so was rather bland to me.
Some of the plot felt forced. I didn't totally buy into the being a servant for a short period of time then not being one for some years & then going back into servitude. The man with the reputation of being a "rake" who ended up being a safe person was weird too. I think that's the thing, I never really felt that Kinley was really truly in danger. She took so many risks that didn't really have dire consequences and it made her come across as charmed but rather stupid. It's a clean romance. It's nice that love prevails across social standing but does not guarantee a luxurious lifestyle. Something is missing to really sell this story, I'm just not sure what.
. I love Annette's character developments. They are engaging, real, and relatable. I love getting inside their head. I hope she does some scenes from Rylans perspective. Im so excited for more of her books.
