Review: Love's Sweet Beginning by:Ann Shorey

Love's Sweet Beginning (Sisters at Heart #3)
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.

My Review:
Cassie feels it's time to find a job, since they have moved to a rather small town, she has to help herself and her mother get back on their feet. But the only person willing to hire her is the town grocer. He's quite handsome but he can be a little secretive. Since he's willing to let her work for him, she has a job but her mother throws a huge fit. According to her mother, ladies aren't suppose to work, they are suppose to be taken care of for the rest of their lives.

Jacob doesn't feel right hiring a beautiful woman to work in his store, especially one that he quite fond of. But she would ever feel the same about him, especially knowing about his dark past. He knows she's only trying to help support her mother, but he was immediately drawn to her the minute she came through his doors. But if her mother had a fit about her working for him, what would she say about him being close to her daughter?
