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.
A story about candy! What could get better than that? I was super excited when I found this book! Luckily, I was not disappointed. I stayed up late into the night, finishing this book. I just couldn’t put it down.
Lucy and Charlie were wonderful main characters. They fought, they flirted, and they were just a perfect couple. I really liked the first scene in which they met. They didn’t know who the other was and they acted like normal people. And then when they found out–whew! That was awesome!
I was super interested in this because apparently back in that era, candy business was a big thing. And each company’s recipe was theirs and theirs only.
The cover was pretty good. It wasn’t amazing but still good. I really liked the fact that she held a candy recipe in her hand, and it kind of looked like she was hiding it from the guy. This cover deserves 3 stars. Random note: To those of you who watched the TV show Agent Carter, doesn’t the guy on the cover look like Daniel Sousa? Yeah, I know, that was random, but I had to ask.
The book was wonderful! I have to say once again that it is a favorite of mine. I definitely liked that fact that it wasn’t just some mushy romance. It held historical facts as well as fiction. So, yeah, definitely five stars!
