I thoroughly enjoyed the Find Me, Remember Me, Keep Me books by Michelle Mankin. I always enjoy Michelle’s writing but I particularly enjoyed this romance which features older characters, and for once, an older than the hero, heroine (shocker!).
Michelle gave me a taster of the first book back in November and then left me hanging for more! When an ARC of all three books arrived on my kindle I was beside myself and delved back in straight away. I re-read all the chapters that I had already read so I could be transported to St John with Anna and Johnny!
Initially, the story is set on the Island of St John which Michelle describes beautifully. I absolutely adore books with an Island setting and this was no exception. This story, told mostly from Anna’s point of view, but also occasionally from Johnny, is more than just a romance story; it’s a story of self-discovery, and rejuvenation. At the start of these books, Anna’s confidence was at an all-time low, it was great to see that turn around and for Anna to find herself once more.
Annabelle, a forty one year old, mother of two teenage boys, travels to St John alone following her marriage breakdown. Her best friend Claire arranges for Anna to stay at her brother Johnny’s beachside villa. Johnny isn’t supposed to be there, and Anna believes that the caretaker is meeting her at the port. But, well, that’s not quite the situation! Of course!
We don’t get the greatest first impression of Johnny but he sure turns it around. What’s not to love about a mysterious, bearded, troubled but gentle souled fella? Johnny was a great character; he had his own issues going on but the way he gave Anna her confidence back and fought for her was heart-warming.Read more ›
Find Me, Remember Me and Keep Me is a book in three parts. Keep Me sees Annabelle taking control of her life and finally choosing the right man! Although the book is short, it's long enough to cover the important bits. It's fast flowing though doesn't feel rushed. Claire is an amazing best friend and sister, I can't wait to read her and Coopers story.

The love story of Johnny and Annabelle was never an easy one and with all their cards laid out on the table, it looks as if their path to a happily ever after is finally theirs. However, the author continues to keep us on our toes and more secrets, more heartbreak seems to follow wherever these two happen to go.
What I loved most was that it was never simple. Although two people falling in love should make things easier, both Johnny and Annabelle's past and present keep getting in the way. We are front and center to the passion, to the devotion, to the struggle to make it all work out in the end. These two do it with grace and respect and most of all with a love that truly can and I know will conquer all.
Johnny and Annabelle are well-written, mature characters that I fell for right from the start. Their chemistry is evident and you could feel the affection in the stolen glances, the ease at which they could spend the day and the outright love that they could never escape. This entire trilogy shows that yes, even a mature woman can find love again and I enjoyed every minute, whether or not it broke my heart at times.
The author has truly written a tale that will make you smile. It will make you swoon but most of all it will make you want more. The author has a wonderful way of connecting her books and I am very hopeful this is not the last we will see of our couple.
It is a joyous and heartfelt look at love that I didn't want to end. If you aren't yet a fan of Michelle Mankin, this will definitely make you stand up and take notice of her talent that onlyseems to get better with each new book.
Well worth your time. Highly recommended and a huge 5++++ stars!!!
"I never lied to you."
"Sins of omission..."
KEEP ME about ruined me. Mercy!! First of all there is so, so much that happens in this short read. How Mankin got every bit of all that goodness into this book is beyond me. Lady obviously knows what she is doing. That is for darn sure.
As I read this one I sort of took my time. I knew this was the end. I knew that once this book ended I wasn't going to get any more Anna and Johnny. So I savored my time with them. Well, for as long as I could. I am not really the patient kind of reader. So I ended up greedily taking it all in as fast as I could. I was dying to know what would happen. Would Johnny and Anna be together? What would Charles do to them even if they did decide to? He is a powerful man after all. And what about when....Ah, ah, ah. I can't give that away. Trust me; you will want to read what happens for yourself!!
Getting to read this amazing series has started my year off on the right foot. Definitely setting the bar for some authors to compete with its goodness. I will say that I saw quite a few stories lingering between the lines with this one and some of the other characters. I am restless to know if this is something the author plans to indulge in. But I encourage you to pick up this series and immerse yourself into this beautifully crafted story of finding yourself and finding love. 5 Stars!
What I loved most about Keep Me was getting to know Anna's family better as well as getting more of Johnny's history. We even get a few chapters from his POV. All this combined to fully flesh out Anna and Johnny as characters - rounded them out. And really made me believe in them.
What I took away from their story:
-The titles could be more apropos for the characters and their story. I delighted in Mankin continuing her tradition of defining pertinent terms at the beginning of the book as well.
-Mankin deftly conveyed a real story - the characters are relatable and their situations realistic.
-Mankin's use of metaphor brilliantly paints pictures of scenery as well as emotions.
-Seeing Anna blossom into a emotionally stronger and confident woman was a beautiful thing.
As for Anna, how could you not love her? She was a great mother with always putting her boys first, a caring friend to Claire, a loving sister, and even though she had millions of dollars at her disposal she was always one of the first people to host a fundraiser or charity in order to help others. How does anyone turn out like that when they are in a marriage in which she was always second best to her husband? That is what Johnny saw in Annabelle. A person who more than deserved to be loved and cared for. It did take some convincing from him to get her to understand that the age difference did not matter to him because he looked past all of that to see what type of woman she really was.
This third part to the series dealt with Johnny back in the picture and ready to fight for a woman that he had let leave the island with her heartless husband. Johnny’s devotion to her was beyond words, it was shown in his actions too. As a tornado threatened the fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project it was Johnny who put Annabelle’s safety above his own and went to look for her and make sure she was safe, as Charles sought shelter without checking to see if Annabelle was ok. You are taken on one hell of a ride when they throw caution to the wind and let their romance take over. They have to deal with Charles and all the implications that he holds for Annabelle and for Johnny’s career and his love of music. There is another little twist thrown into all of this in which Charles, Johnny and Annabelle has to decide what is best for someone else besides themselves.
All three of these books are ones that should not be passed up if you love to read a great book. After the endings of the first two parts which leave you with NEEDING to find out what is next, the final book will leave you with a good feeling and a feeling of contentment. Excellent job Ms. Mankin and I cannot wait to see what else you have coming for us.

This story is a true romantic read. I literally felt my heart flutter while reading this story. The words that Mankin puts to paper drip with love, admiration and pure heart. The character Johnny is a true gentleman who guards those he cares for with genuine ferocity and loves unequivocally. He will make you melt into gushy little pieces.
I also enjoyed the character of Annabelle. Annabelle is an older woman with two teenage boys and a husband who is a jerk at his finest. He treats Annabelle like property and in an attempt to regain her life and dignity she takes a personal trip to St. Johns. Its like a reset button. Annabelle though she has her insecurities is still a very strong character. Throughout the novel she faces very real and understandable obstacles and dilemmas for a woman in her position. She wants a love that is real but she also must do what is best for her family and children. I liked seeing her struggle with her emotions and what was the right course for her. That is life, its not easy all the time to make decisions especially when you are at a different phase in your life.I liked seeing her overcome the barriers that kept her from being happy from the perspective of an older woman.
I would have liked the story to be a bit longer with some more development with Johnny and Annabelle's family, especially her sons. Annabelle's sons were very important to her and I would have liked to see some more conversation and bonding between them and Johnny, we get a small glimpse of them together and some conversation between Annabelle and her son CJ and Trent, but I would have liked Mankin to delve into that a bit more from both the perspective of the boys and Annabelle.
Overall I enjoyed this story, there are some heart wrenching moments, some moments that will make you seriously pissed especially when it comes to Annabelle's husband Charles, and some moments that will lift your spirits. I enjoyed the underlying theme of second chances. Both Johnny and Annabelle has a history of heartbreak and I loved that they both were able to get past it and find happiness again.
I have been reading Mankin for some time now and she never disappoints. Satisfying romantic read with true heart!
