level and romanceBest for Ages 16 and up I didn t think that Siri Mitchell could match The Messenger, but she managed to with Unrivaled.One of the reasons I was so eager to read this book was the fact it was set around candy making and candy factories I had never read a book with candy making as a main part of it The candy making parts of the book were obviously well researched, and were delightful They felt very real, but not so much detail that I got bored.The overall story was amazing Like with her last two books, one third in I was wondering how she was going to stretch the book for 400 pages Two chapters from the end, I wondered how she was going to wrap up everything She once again delivered a satisfying ending that made me sigh with contentment.The best thing about this book had to be the amazing way Siri made me wonder who was right Often books try to create a situation where the reader is supposed to wonder who is telling the truth Most of the time, however, they fall short of truly creating that feeling By the middle of the book, Siri had me wondering which set of parents were twisting the truth and who was right.I really loved the message of this book, especially since it was subtle and woven into the story flawlessly The end justifies the means is an ever growing belief, and this book looks into what that could cost you, but still has a happy ending.I highly recommend this book for historical fiction lovers, sweet romance lovers, and readers who can t get enough of extremely well written fiction.I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review I was under no obligation to write a positive review The opinions in this review are entirely my own Lucy is determined to save her father s candy business Too bad her major competition stole her father s most successful recipe the one for Royal Taffy But Lucy is certain she can invent something just as good The question is whether she can before her mother manages to marry her off into high society.Charlie Clarke is the antithesis of well bred His father ditched Charlie s mother and her children, then remarried, started up a super successful candy business, and lives the high life When Ch Lucy is determined to save her father s candy business Too bad her major competition stole her father s most successful recipe the one for Royal Taffy But Lucy is certain she can invent something just as good The question is whether she can before her mother manages to marry her off into high society.Charlie Clarke is the antithesis of well bred His father ditched Charlie s mother and her children, then remarried, started up a super successful candy business, and lives the high life When Charlie finds himself on the wrong side of the law, moving in with his father becomes the only option Charlie knows he doesn t belong He s ready to skip town as soon as well as soon as he figures out that crazy girl who seems bound and determined to ruin his father s candy business.Tons of fun and two likeable main characters Nothing is quite as simple as both would like to believe, and the battle between the two of them is well worth the read Pure fun This review can also be found on Book Girl of Mur y Castell blog.This is a sweet story Yes, it tells about two rivalling families making candy to the point where you start to drool reading the descriptions or was that just me but it also tells about overcoming past mistakes and accepting second chances Forgiveness Things Christian fiction revolves around I know, it s shocking, but sometimes I try to read out of my comfort zone

fiction revolves around I know, it s shocking, but sometimes I try to read out of my comfort zone and anything to do with religious fiction is way, way out of my comfort zone Sometimes it pays off, other times it doesn t, but look at that blurb Lucy Kendall always assumed she d help her father in his candy making business, creating recipes and aiding him in their shared passion A young woman wanting to go into business with her father and to make little bites of heaven Yes, please.But after a year traveling in Europe, Lucy returns to 1910 St Louis to find her father unwell and her mother planning to sell the struggling candy company Determined to help, Lucy vows to create a candy that will reverse their fortunes So here s the conflict Not only is her father unwell, Lucy lives at a time when when women in business were frowned upon At least if you were of a certain social class it was a no no There are also otherpersonal obstacles than figuring out the recipe for the next best candy or how to sell it She has the spirit but is it enough to succeed St Louis newcomer Charlie Clarke is determined to help his father dominate the nation s candy industry I was surprised to see that Unrivaled was told from two alternating point of views and that of the two, I liked Charlie s voice better In a way it was indistinguishable from Lucy s voice, but his actions didn t make me sympathise with the bad parent or want to pull my hair out like Lucy s did Compromise is not an option when the prize is a father s approval, and falling in love with a business rival is a recipe for disaster when only one company can win.I don t think this is quite true For someone who isn t willing to compromise Charlie goes along with his parents plans and lets his life be turned upside down without a word of protest Nor is his father s approval the top most thing on his mind Charlie sinterested in learning why he left in the first place.The rivalry itself was quite fun Lucy especially did a few callous things to sabotage her competitor.Will these two star crossed lovers let a competition that turns less than friendly sour their dreams If you can t guess the answer to that, let me introduce you to Agatha Christie, an author who ll blow your mind But in all seriousness, as long as we re talking about the future in candy making their dreams look to be quite safe even if not in a way they imagined As for the romance riddled with insta love, the outlook isn t as bright I wasn t exactly moved by the sweetness of that side of the novel, but that s better for my teeth anyway.It is a sweet story and I m glad I read it but I m ready to go back to darker themes I received an Advanced Readers Copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. Unrivaled is a historical Christian romance novel Sometimes when reading books with several different sub genres, we ask ourselves which one is the most represented in this novel 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 Unrivaled is a historical Christian romance novel Sometimes when reading books with several different sub genres, we ask ourselves which one is the most represented in this novel 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 amature romance or little to none
