    Eliza Haddon has groomed her daughter since birth to be every inch the lady Whether Cassie is capable of doing anything useful is of no conseuence After all Cassie will marry well and that will be that However life has a way of upsetting the best laid plans In the wake of the Civil War Cassie has lost both her father and fiancee All that's left for her and her mother to do now is track down a maverick uncle who might be able to give them something of a better life On their search for the man mother and daughter stop off in a town Self conscious of her shortcomings when it comes to work Cassie goes job hunting so the Haddons will not have to rely on the charity of friends and family She finds work with Jacob West a local businessman When she fails at the simplest task Jacob still gives her a second chance Overcoming obstacles in the workplace isn't all she has to face up to either Eliza has made it uite clear she is not fond of how far her daughter has fallen Imagine a lady working as kitchen help Scandalous But Cassie soldiers on and in the process must show she does have some backboneI shall be brutally honest When I started Love's Sweet Beginning I hated it In fact I couldn't wait to get to the end of it so it could over and done with The characters struck me as being nitwits and Cassie was just so extremely inept it wasn't funny it was frustrating However it does pay to persist with some books and so I did After about 100 pages the story line began to pick up Cassie was showing some grit Jacob agonized over his past coming to light and some villains entered the scene Both Cassie and Jacob fought their own battles on two fronts while butting heads with one another Jacob has some shall we say trust issues Gradually the plot comes together and ends with a bangAll things taken into consideration this was not my favorite story and not something I would consider rereading anytime soon but it is still worth a read The characters were a little flat and the story dragged in so many areas; I think it could have lost about 100 pages and still not have missed anything The whole incident with Cassie's dead fiancee's brother was a wee bit absurd I find it difficult to believe even he could be as stupid as he wasDISCLAIMER In accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR Part 255 “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising” we would like to note that we received an electronic copy of “Love's Sweet Beginning” from Netgalleycom provided by the publishers Revell in exchange for our honest reviewreetchampionbookreviewswordpresscom

    Cassie and her mother have nothing but each other after the death of Cassie's father They were staying with Cassie's father's brother but they have overstayed their welcome Cassie's mother has a plan that they will go to her brother's place in Noble Springs Only when they arrive nothing goes as planned Cassie decides to get a job Her boss Jacob West will need convincing that Cassie is the right woman for the job Love's Sweet Journey is the third book in the Sisters at Heart series This book can be read as a stand alone novel I instantly fell in love with Cassie She was not wilting flower She has a back bone and was not afraid to stand up for what she wanted While I know this book was about the romance between Cassie and Jacob I did not feel the connection Well not right away In fact they hardly interacted in any romantic way until about mid way of the story Also to be honest I was so glad when Cassie's mother disappeared for a while in the story She was uptight and unfriendly She got on my nerves Overall another winner for Mrs Shorey

    Cassie Haddon’s mother longed for her to be the definitive Southern Belle which is why at the age of twenty five Cassie has no useful skills When they are thrown out of their current home Cassie must find some kind of work But what does a woman do who was never allowed to cook or clean? Desperate Cassie begs a job of grocer and restaurant owner Jacob West Jacob doesn’t particularly need help but something about Cassie makes him want to help But it isn’t long before he regrets that choice Can Cassie make Jacob realize that he needs her as much as she needs him? Love’s Sweet Beginning by Ann Shorey is truly a sweet romance I really felt for Cassie who by no choice of her own was in a rough spot Although things are difficult she never gives up Jacob is a kindhearted hero with a secret and surprising past This charming book is a story of hope forgiveness and starting over You’ll be glad you read it

    Of the three books I think this one is my favorite I loved Cassie's determination to not be told she can't do something Her mother is uite the piece of work and I sympathized with Cassie getting so frustrated with Patrick What a painAll in all this was a good conclusion to the three part series

    Love’s Sweet Beginning was such a joy to read It was one of those books that just flowed for me It was also a book that was full of characters that I found myself thinking about when I had to set the book down and attend to something else in the real world My mind would keep working its way back to Cassie Haddon and Jacob West and all that was going on in their livesAlthough this is the third book in a series I believe you could easily read this book and understand what is going on without having read the first two books The characters from the earlier books are present in this story and you will have a deeper appreciation for the lives they are living if you have read the first two books But once again the author has done a great job of making this book part of a series yet able to be read on its own as wellThe main character Cassie has been raised in a wealthy household all of her life Now that the Civil War is over and their family’s situation has changed she finds herself in need of making a life changing decision She must learn how to earn a living She has a lot of perseverance and is willing to do whatever it takes to make a home for herself and her mother Ah her motherthis woman drove me crazy in the book She was just so manipulative and I kept wondering how Cassie would ever be able to get out from under her thumbJacob runs the local grocery store which also houses a restaurant He isn’t excited to hire Cassie for many reasons one being the attraction he feels toward her Jacob is a bit older than Cassie and we find that he has some secrets from his past The author does a very good job of creating characters that have had to overcome extreme situationsI enjoyed watching the characters grow throughout the book Cassie had to grow in not only learning how to make her way in the world but in her understanding of God’s word and her own worth in God’s eyes She was also so respectful of her mother even during very trying situations I loved watching Jacob grow in his understanding of God’s love for him and the fact that he truly was a new man The past was in the past The love story was sweet and there were some frustrating situations for Cassie and Jacob to work through during this story that kept the plot moving and very interesting all the way to the endI received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review which I have givenYou can read this review on my blog at
