My review:

I read most of this book in one sitting. Once it hooked me I found it quite engrossing. It had a few mysterious elements to it as well as some rags to riches themes. Perhaps the most touching was the desire of a son for his father's love. The heroine was a bit harder to bond with because she was pretty self-centered and prickly, but she had her moments when you felt sorry for her. At the same time I had a hard time connecting with her. I think she'd spurned the hero one too many times, which made me lose my affection for her. So while I was glad how it ended, I wasn't sighing and excited because I was still trying to figure out what the hero loved about her beyond the pretty face and the passion for candy-making.

A few times I wondered about secondary characters like Jenny and Sam and how they might put a damper on things. I thought they would have had more scandalous roles than they ended up with. That would've make things more agonizing for sure. At any rate, I enjoyed the story. It was compelling reading and the chapters were short enough to make you think, "I'll just read one more" and then before you know it you've finished the book. I liked how the author switched chapters between the hero and heroine's points of view. Charlie seemed like more of a nice guy than expected given his history, but it was his concern for the poor and children who had to work to help feed their families that really made me love him. The kiss to shut the heroine up was quite yummy as well. All in all, I enjoyed it.
