Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
When a suspicious accident occurs at the famous Dinsmore Chocolate Factory in Sinclair, Kansas, Caroline Lang goes undercover as a factory worker to investigate the circumstances surrounding the event and how the factory treats its youngest employees—the child workers. Caroline’s fervent faith, her difficult childhood, and compassionate heart drove her to her job as an investigator for the Labor Commission and she is compelled to see children freed from such heavy adult responsibilities, to allow them to pursue an education.
Oliver Dinsmore, heir to the Dinsmore candy dynasty, has his own investigation to conduct. Posing as a common worker known as “Ollie Moore,” he aims to find out all he can about the family business before he takes over for his father. Caroline and Oliver become fast friends, but tension mounts when the two find themselves at odds about the roles of child workers. Hiding their identities becomes even more difficult when fate brings them together over three children in desperate need. When all is revealed, will the truth destroy the love starting to grow between them?
I LOVED this story! The characters gripped me from the start. Caroline was an amazing heroine! She was strong, but not in a feminist way. The pain she had gone through made me care for her even more. Noble and Annamarie were the best and godly role models I have ever read about!
Caroline and Oliver's relationship was one of the best parts of this book! It was interesting and was so sweet.
I loved Letta, Lank, and Lesley! They were a fun part to the story and their relationship with the rest of the characters was very well done.
There was nothing wrong with this book, except for the fact that the climax was long in coming and was very short when it did come.
This was an amazing book! I wanted to stay up all night reading it. I can't wait to read more the authors books in the future!
I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review.
