Romeo and Juliet Eat Candy and Live
Unrivaled by Siri Mitchell was a sweet (pun intended) 20th century read. Lucy has high hopes that she can save her father's struggling candy factory with a new recipe, but when Charles, the son of her father's biggest competitor, comes to town she finds the job becomes nearly impossible. Avoiding their inexplicable connection also proves to be an insurmountable task.
Each chapter takes you into Lucy and Charlie's minds, respectively. The back and forth takes a bit of getting used to, but you come to look forward peeking into the other's perspective. This is truly a novel that displays the lesson that there is a his side, a her side and a truth that lies somewhere in between.
Bethany House provided me with a copy of this book to review, but I was not financially compensated in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my own observations and thoughts while reading this novel.
