Love's Sweet BeginningOh my! I began this book late in the afternoon and didn’t put it down until I finished it.  I opened it as I was cooking dinner and I only vaguely recall putting my children to bed.

In Love’s Sweet Beginning. a prim and proper young woman, Cassie Haddon, is put to the task of providing for her mother. However, Cassie lacks the training and skill required to earn a living. A sympathetic (and handsome) store owner, Jacob West gives her a chance that costs him more than he expected. Ann Shorey adds enough conflict to keep it interesting and just enough kissing to keep it terribly romantic.  I adore the way Cassie and Jack both grow to handle more than they knew they could while growing together at the same time.

I so enjoyed this heartwarming story. This is the first title of Ann Shorey’s I have read.  It will not be my last! She truly has a gift for bringing two very likeable characters together in a charming adventure. I recommend Love’s Sweet Beginning to those who enjoy historical fiction at it’s finest.

I was given a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I have not been compensated in any form other than the joy of reading a good book. All opinions are mine.
