Synopsis

Three-Time Christy Finalist Pens Another Winning Historical Romance

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?

Historic St. Louis
January 19th, 2015
Siri Mitchell is one of my favorite authors and I was excited to read this novel of hers because it is set in my newest city: St. Louis. Siri always does a great job of creating a sense of place in her writing, in a way that I can really see and feel the places where the characters are inhabiting. While this sense was not as strong in this book as in some of her others, I could still picture much of the city, partially I'm sure since I've been there. Over all, I felt like the story was a bit slow moving in parts, or at least I didn't feel an urgency to read on and find out what happens next throughout the whole novel. It is the story of two flawed people who take a long time to really come to an understanding, or at least one of them does. Like many of Siri's novels, it has strong themes that the reader should identify with. The part that I hated the most about the story was that I couldn't try the candy!!! So, so sad
