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 downLucy 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 awesomeI 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 onlyThe 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 askThe 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 Title UnrivaledAuthor Siri MitchellAuthor’s Website This review is written in my own opinions and words

Our answer is definitely Historical; similar to the only other Siri Mitchell story I have read previously There is very little faith based Christian content woven into the story Honestly the story felt simply like the faith content was thrown in at the end as an “oops” with little care The romance was childish? I couldn’t keep track of who was “mad” or who “hated” each other as every chapter they had different feelings Going off on the fact that love is not a feeling this annoyed me and i wasn’t rooting for Lucy Charlie in the love department I was however hoping they both with make personal progress and spiritual growth some of which happened On a positive note let’s get one thing straight The historical info and all the research Mitchell had to have done on candy making was impressive I really enjoyed reading about the process and the ends and outs of the business I am considering trying another Mitchell novel to see if I can find a novel with a mature romance or little to none
