Review: Love's Sweet Beginning by Ann Shorey

About the book:
What will it take for a once-privileged young woman to make her way in the world? 

It isn't Cassie Haddon's fault that she has reached the age of twenty-five without possessing any useful skills. Until the War Between the States, she always had servants. Since then, she and her mother have been forced to rely on family to care for them. But now the well of human kindness has run dry--and Cassie must find work to support them.

Unfortunately, leaving the past behind is easier said than done, and Cassie must summon all of her courage and wits to convince local restaurateur and grocer Jacob West that she's exactly what his business needs.

With her signature sweet romance, Ann Shorey weaves a tale of two people from different backgrounds finding common ground and the hope of a bright future together.

My rating:
My thoughts:

Love's Sweet Beginning is the third book in Shorey's "Sisters at Heart" series. Having previously read and enjoyed the first two books, I was looking forward to this story and I really liked it!

Cassie's character was very interesting. I liked how she grew as a person and started to take control of her life and make her own choices. I also liked Jacob and his other employees.

I liked how Love's Sweet Beginning had a little bit of intrigue in the story. It was fun trying to guess what had happened in some of the characters' pasts.

Like the second book in this series, I liked how this story included the main characters from the previous books. It's always nice to see what's going on in the lives of characters from previous novels. That's one of my favorite things about series. :) The only problem I had was that it's been a while since I've read the other books, so it was a little difficult to try and remember who everyone was.

All in all, Love's Sweet Beginning was an enjoyable read. I liked the characters, story, and historical elements. If you enjoy historical romance novels, I think you'll like this book.
