Love's Sweet Beginning Book Review


About the Book
 It wasn't Cassie Haddon's fault that she had managed to reach the age of twenty-five without possessing any useful skills. Until the war, she had always had servants to wait on her. Since then, she and her widowed mother had moved from place to place, relying on family to care for them. Now she's forced to find work to support them both. What isn't in her plans is falling for Jacob West, a local restaurateur and grocer. She needs a job and he needs help. But what they both need is love.(Goodreads)

 My Review

This is the third book in the Sister's at Heart series. I found that this book can be read by itself as it is about Cassie's life. I really enjoyed the overall storyline with this book. Cassie has been brought up and raised without having to really do anything until suddenly her and her mother lose everything that have. I liked Cassie's character because even though she had never cooked or cleaned she was willing to work hard to provide for herself and her mother. After moving and with little money she starts working as a waitress and meets the handsome store owner. While predictable, I enjoyed the characters, even though her mother can be rather annoying. As a side note, I personally do not think that the cover does this book justice. So to those who do judge books by their cover, the book is better than the cover relates. I want to go back and read the first two books in this series and I look forward to reading more from this author.

Thank you for your review, Michelle. (I agree with you about the cover--it's pretty, but doesn't give much of a hint what the story is about.) Having said that, I'm so glad you read the book and got to know Cassie.
