Love and candy? Who doesn't love that mix? In Siri Mitchell's new book, readers meet Lucy and Charlie, who come from different social statuses. Lucy's accustomed to a life of traveling and parties while Charlie started helping support his family when he was seven. When Charlie's father who abandoned him offers him a job in his candy company, he meets Lucy, whose family is losing their candy company. Will they be able to find a common ground without running each other out of business?
I loved Charlie and enjoyed reading the story from both of their points of view. Lucy is a little immature at first, convinced she is going to be able to fix everything with a few tricks, but I really liked her by the end. I enjoyed the conflict in which Lucy found herself--stuck in a society that wanted her to cut ribbons and look pretty when all she wants to do is run her family's business.
Fans of Christian historical fiction will enjoy this book. It's a light, fun read.
I received this book in exchange for my review. My thoughts are my own.
