Kim Vogel Sawyer is one of my absolute favorite authors, and I really enjoyed her recent book Echoes of Mercy, which takes place in Sinclair, Kansas in the 1900s. Carrie Lang takes a job at Dinsmore’s Chocolate Factory as a toter. She finds herself falling for Ollie Moore, a janitor at the factory, and he has the same feelings. Neither of them knows the other has a secret. Carrie is actually an undercover investigator for the Labor Commission, while Ollie is the owner’s son. They are both undercover for different reasons. Carrie is investigating an accident, while Ollie is trying to find out how the company is run before he takes it over.
This was a great story, and I loved the romance between the two main characters. As can be expected, when you’re dealing with two characters who are not who they are pretending to be, there are some misunderstandings between both of them. They are able to eventually work together to dig deeper into what is going on at the factory.
