About this Book

Sometimes a secret must be kept for the truth to be revealed. 

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?

My Review

There are so many good things about this book; the story, the characters and the lessons that were taught. Carrie Lang has strong feelings and she’s not afraid to let people know what they are, especially when it comes to children working in factories instead of learning in school. It doesn’t take long for her to butt heads with not only her new boss, but the factory’s newest janitor, Ollie Moore. The chemistry between Carrie and Ollie was fun to watch as they both fight the growing attraction. I think my favorite character, was Keisha, the restaurant owner. She was full of life and was secure in who she was so she wasn’t afraid to call things the way they were.

This is another strong story by an excellent author. The primary storyline is Carries attempt to determine the cause of a co-worker’s death. However, the author weaves not only some romance and suspense into the story but redemption and self worth. I also loved the storyline with Lank, it was a joy to watch where the author took him in this story.

The author not only gives an entertaining story but she gives us good reminders about life and what things are truly important.  I look forward to reading more from this author.
