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.

Siri Mitchell is one of my favorite historical fiction novels, and her most recent release, Unrivaled, has not disappointed!
I really enjoyed the easy flow writing that Mitchell writes with and really enjoyed the story line of the candy business. The book is very easy to read and is a quick read too, as well it has fantastic flow, and endearing character that will catch your eye from the very beginning. While combining twists and turns with mystery, and of course romance, the never ending theme of God's gift of forgiveness shone throughout the novel. Also, we are reminded that even when our human nature doesn't want to forgive, we must do so, just as God forgives us. If you are a fan of Siri Mitchell already, you will enjoy this book.
If you haven't read her books, this is a perfect one to start with!
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
