Unrivaled by Siri Mitchell
Unrivaled by Siri Mitchell was a welcome change from the books I've endured lately. This was Siri Mitchell at her best. I was captivated from the first word and giggled my way through the end of the book.
Each chapter is written from the point of view of one of two characters. Lucy and Charlie take turns telling the story. It was fun to watch the way they reacted to each other through their own eyes.
Delightful and heartwarming. The characters were realistic and I learned a lot about the time period. I wish every book could be like this one!
From the back cover:
Falling in love could be a recipe for disaster.
Lucy Kendall returns from a tour of the Continent, her luggage filled with the latest fashions and a mind fired by inspiration. After tasting Europe's best confections, she's sure she'll come up with a recipe that will save her father's struggling candy business and reverse their fortunes. But she soon discovers that their largest competitor, the cheat who swindled her father out of his price recipe, has now hired a promotions manager-a cocky, handsome out-of-towner who gets under Lucy's skin.
Charlie Clarke's new role at Standard Manufacturing is the chance of a lifetime. He can put some rough times behind him and reconnect with the father he's never known. The one thing he never counted on, however, was tenacious Lucy Kendall. She's making his work life miserable...amd making herself impossible for him to forget.
New from Bethany House, this book was provided for review by Litfuse.
