The Sweetheart Deal is a lovely romance novel which portrays the relationship between Ellen Hamilton and John Adair. Ellen and John were romantically involved years ago; however, they broke up. She thought that he was only after her money as she was a principal shareholder in the family business, Hamilton Manufacturing. John left town back then to advance his career. Ellen wondered why John was back in town now. She guessed that he was looking to stake a claim in the business. John worked for Riesel Lang, a rival company. Will Ellen and John ignite their romance?

The Sweetheart Deal has a light hearted feel about it. I loved the fact that author Allison Morse showcased the latent attraction between the two main characters. I found the discourse between the two of them very entertaining. It reminded me of the old fashioned form of courtship that is practically non-existent today. This brings a truly refreshing perspective to the book. The interplay between the main characters seemed realistic. Most adults know that relationships are not always lovey-dovey. The conflict between the family members is consistent with sibling rivalry. The author did an excellent job outlining the push and pull dynamics of the family relationship. The language of the novel is colloquial and easy to understand. I applaud Miss Morse for producing a very engaging novel.
