The characters are engaging and the story entertaining. Their issues the characters contend with are not light ones, and are not treated lightly. But they are not so broody about them to darken the tone of the book or make if mawkish. The book moves from moody and sad at the beginning to hopeful and refreshing as the story and characters develop. The characters' conflicts are within themselves, and not at all forced or pushed with the main couple working in each others interest and acting...reasonable. One of my pet peeves with many romances is forced drama/conflict to create tension with what I see as unreasonable or immature actions. This story doesn't do that - the author keeps the conflict and issues to be resolved, but the conflicts, both external and internal are created and resolved in a satisfactory fashion.
The plot is straightforward, with no wild twists. Which is fine, as this is a romance and we're not expecting someone to pop out of the closet or get a piano dropped on his head. While that meant there were few developments that were truly surprising, it didn't mean they were not interesting. And the author has a lovely and engaging style that keeps you reading as the story unfolds. You are kept waiting and wanting for things to happen, so it is rewarding when they do.
Overall a good read, and a great first effort from a promising new writer.
That's what I felt for Tristan's and Emma's story. Both have dark pasts and together they make each other stronger. They help each other move beyond their pain.
What makes this story a step above is the way Leah created that special hook. One that resonates well with what many women feel.
That we want a hero... and we want that hero to be ourselves... and of course a gorgeous sidekick beside us.
I recommend this read for those looking for a romance book that weaves both intense love and a solid story to back it.
Emma Fletcher would rather not have returned to Stonefall. But too much has gone wrong in her life, so she is back in the town where her mother lives and she frequently visited when younger. While a devastating incident makes her long for something stable, she knows there is little chance of finding it in the place where only a few good things ever happened to her. Once she arrives and starts to settle in for a short period, people that she knew from before enter her life once more. One person keeps turning up, and Emma remembers Tristan Banks as being a good-looking guy in the town. Now she has discovered just how charming he can be, too.
The main reason Emma came to the area was to get her life back on track after being attacked, and she strives to find comfort in day-to-day activities. She also sees Tristan a lot, and he senses there is something bothering her and would really like to help if he can. As he tries to be there for her when she needs someone, they become closer yet secrets remain unspoken.
Though Tristan and Emma are still suffering the aftereffects of previous events, the way in which they deal with these happenings are very different. He tries to not think about what occurred as much anymore, while she is still consumed with fear. The author had me really feeling for these two, as the circumstances surrounding them could easily take place. Facing a past occurrence that continues to influence a person’s current life is not always without plenty of challenges, and those which Tristan and Emma must tackle are certainly demanding at times. Their anguish was very apparent on numerous occasions, and I ached right along with them. There are also some more lighthearted moments when they had fun or cleverly bantered. The couple expresses their honest feelings for one another with tender caring, and these moments came across as truly sincere. THE ENCHANTMENT OF EMMA FLETCHER is emotionally rewarding.
A secondary couple in the story is delightful, as their relationship is filled with hopeful expectation and much wit. The main four characters are all in their early to mid-twenties, and their conversations are exactly what I would expect of individuals who are this age. Viewpoints are from both Tristan and Emma, thus letting me know how they felt about the same situation. L.D. Crichton has created an interesting story about true-to-life people, and I look forward to more books from this author.
I voluntarily reviewed the book from the publisher, and all comments are my honest opinion
