This is the first book of Stockenberg's that I have read. It quickly became my favorite book of all time. The characters are well thought out and believable. The story line hooks you from the beginning and never lets you down. Keepsake a delightfully easy read. I can't wait to read more of Stockenberg's books!

Quinn, a stonemason, and Olivia, daughter of the richest man in town, are a nice twist on the rich boy, poor girl theme. They have great chemistry. Lots of appealing secondary characters; Quinn's old English teacher was a particular gem. The mystery did keep me guessing to the very end.

This book had everything you need. A handsome, mysterious man; a beautiful, independent woman; colorful characters, a mystery and all taking place in an idyllic town. A good, interesting read. I wanted it to go further.

Highly Recommend This book is another must read by Antoinette Stockenberg! This book makes you want to keep on reading it, right from the start. The mystery kept me guessing until the end and my guess was wrong. Just like all of her other books, I had trouble putting it down.

I will say that you get your money's worth as far as the cost of the book and the length. In fact, this book was a little too long for me. It would have benefitted from better editing, I think. I liked the idea of the story, and the mystery was fine, until a vengeful stalker was thrown in with predicatable results(dead rat, nasty flowers, etc.) I liked the hero, Quinn, and he was multi-dimensional. I felt like I got to know him way better than I did the heroine, Olivia. Mrs. D, a secondary character, was delightful, and I think her friendship with Quinn was one of my favorite parts of the story. What I did not like, besides the stalker aspect, was the resolution of the mystery. I did not like the who of the who-dunnit--it changed how I felt about some of the characters and their lack of moral fiber. Can't say much more without giving away the plot. The ending dragged on. I might read something else by this author, but this just disappointed me after an enjoyable start to the book. There were some major typos and other issues that an editor should have caught. The book was worth the 99 cent cost, but is not a keeper for my library.

I truly liked this book with its strong sentamentality for small town, romance and family secrets. The hero Quinn seeks to solve a 17 year murder mystery that provides a number of surprise twists as eliminations are made. While the story has 800 pages it is an engaging quick read. Definitely strongly recommended.

I have read about 5 of this authors books and this one so far was the best. The story was very grabing and it was hard to put down and this book had over 900 pages but the 1 pages turn counted as two number pages.

My first book by this author. I enjoyed the high school friends meeting again 17 years later, both still single, very good romance.

I did not like the ones with ghost in them. They were silly. The others I have read including Keepsake are great. She is a wonderful writer and always keeps my interest.

I really enjoyed this book, as well as others by Stockenberg. Her stories are a nice break from the "serious" literature that I have read all my life. Her stories are always entertaining, with characters and plots that are believable.

KEEPSAKE was a great read. The characters were well developed and progressed throughout the novel. As always, there was a mystery, which kept me guessing until the end. Stockenberg's novels always develop, not just the characters, but the area in which they take place. The city or town, the businesses, the townspeople introduced have back stories, so they are not just thrown into the plot. I appreciate that development in her novels. This novel was fun to read and held my interest right through to the denouement.

I stumbled upon Emily's Ghost and loved the book! I read A Charmed Place and just finished Keepsake. I love Antoinette Stockenberg's writing style, there's a little bit of romance and mystery. Keepsake didn't let me down, it kept me guessing until the very end. On to read another one of her book, A Month at The Shore.
