A NoveleBook - 2013
Lucy Kendall always assumed she'd help her father in his candy-making business, creating recipes and aiding him in their shared passion. But after a year traveling in Europe, Lucy returns to 1910 St. Louis to find her father unwell and her mother planning to sell the struggling candy company. Determined to help, Lucy vows to create a candy that will reverse their fortunes.
St. Louis newcomer Charlie Clarke is determined to help his father dominate the nation's candy industry. Compromise is not an option when the prize is a father's approval, and falling in love with a business rival is a recipe for disaster when only one company can win. Will these two star-crossed lovers let a competition that turns less than friendly sour their dreams?

SummaryAdd a Summary
Such a 'sweet' story! This book is a lot of fun, and things are not what they appear to be at first glance. The author takes what you assume in the beginning and stands it on its head. I am generally not a fan of books that switch back and forth between characters every chapter, but it really works here. I didn't find it frustrating or annoying in the least. It's not disruptive and I had no trouble catching up to what was going on with the characters as the author switched characters.
I love all the history of St. Louis that Siri Mitchell has in the book, and at the end there's a note from the author that explains in more details some of what was going on at that time, in regards to candy making and competition between the candy makers, as well as some of the events that went on in the city and are in the book. I'd suggest you have some candy ready to munch as you read this delicious story. You'll be reaching for that candy before you get very far.
I received this ebook from Bethany House Publishers for the purpose of an honest review. My opinion is my own. Thank you Bethany House.
