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 Review:

Oh how fun to read about candy! Who just doesn't love it? Of course I never expected to find so much competition in the candy making world and wow can they be mean. I found the setting to be fun and loved the candy making plot because it was different and something I had not read yet.

At the beginning I really like Lucy but as the story played out I found I did not like her as much and found all her scheming to be a tad too much. I didn't think she really grow or change during the story. In my opinion she made the romance side of the story hard to love.

The big downside I found was the book just was so slow paced and I think it could have been a lot shorter. I will say I loved the fact that it was written in the first person. This was my first Siri Mitchell book so I have no idea how it compares to her others, but I would assume many will love this book.
