Unrivaled by Siri Mitchell

I’ve never read anything by this author before, but was really excited to get this book.  It had everything going for it – a girl, a guy, history between their two families, and chocolate.  Who doesn’t like having sugary treats be part of the story?  =-)  I wasn’t disappointed, it was a really great book that didn’t just tell a love story, it told a story about betrayal, forgiveness, and redemption as well.

The two main characters of the book are Lucy, the daughter of a candy maker, who just came home from touring Europe and who has some great new ideas for “confections” her dad could try to make to turn business around… and Charlie, whose father owns the competing candy making business, and who hired him to put Lucy’s father out of business.  When he accepted the position, he had no idea he would be working against someone like Lucy, and it actually took them awhile find out about their competing interests.  Once they did, the battle really began!  I loved how the characters were so well developed, and how you could track with what they were doing and “why” they were doing each thing.  It was easy to follow, but a joy to read.  You really felt like you could understand what the characters were thinking, and you could feel the frustration and pain they felt at different points too.

While some parts of the ending were predictable, there were parts that were definitely a surprise.  I’m looking forward to reading more by this author soon!

I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.  The opinions expressed here are solely my own.
