“You can be my problem anytime.”
So sweet! Keepsake is the kind of book that you read in a warm day, a book that keeps you company and makes you feel nice afterwards despite the few dark elements of the story. In order to fully enjoy this I recommend you read the previous two books although it can be read as a standalone but there are a few inside stuff you might miss otherwise.
This book is about Zach and I’ve been so curious about him since I started this series. Zach is a survivor who escaped a polygamist cult and found shelter on the Shipley’s farm; he’s a low-key guy, keeps to himself, and he’s a reader – he makes so many Harry Potter references, which I loved.
“Once in a while some well-meaning person in my life would point out that after living the first nineteen years of my life on a dusty property in Wyoming, I still rarely left the farm. But they were wrong. I’d been to Middle Earth and Hogwarts and Dickensian London all in the past month or so.”
Lark is a survivor as well, she had an overseas adventure gone wrong – won’t spoil but holy wow – and now she, too, is looking for some down time at the farm. Only problem is, her nightmares. She has awful vivid nightmares and Zach is there to wake her up at night and comfort her.
Unlike the other two books I didn’t feel the same connection with the characters and the romance didn’t really captivated me, but it was such a sweet book with so many adorable moments between the two and Bowen’s usual vivid writing with all the farm details I expected and the little humoristic pieces between the characters.
