Book Review: Unrivaled by Siri Mitchell

About the Book: 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 biggest competitor, the cheat who swindled her father out of his prize 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...and making herself impossible for him to forget.

My Thoughts: I enjoyed this light, quick read - but be warned, you may experience candy cravings as you Mitchell transports you back in time and into the kitchen of candy making as Lucy tries to create the perfect candy to save her family's business.

Lucy is spirited and Charlie is charming - and both grow a lot throughout the book, in faith, grace and forgiveness.  I do wish it had ended with an even more redemptive ending, but still enjoyed it.  It was entertaining watching them one up each other, and some incidents were a great reminder that thoughtless actions can result in consequences you did not anticipate.

Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for organizing this tour and providing me with my complimentary review copy.
