Overview

A young woman desperate to outrun her nightmare reluctantly falls straight into the arms of the one boy who might be able to wake her up in this sweet and sexy debut about finding love while confronting your demons.

After Emma Fletcher is viciously attacked and left for dead, she flees to her old childhood hometown where she’s confronted with bitter memories of her damaged past and alcoholic mother. Emma is determined to make her stay temporary and get out with minimal emotional damage. What she doesn’t count on is Tristan Banks: auto mechanic, coffee addict, and town hottie with dark secrets of his own.

Tristan’s track record of saving girls has historically led to failure. The last thing he needs is trouble in the form of a leggy brunette with an attitude, but when he starts to fall for Emma, Tristan realizes the only way he can save her is to help her save herself.

Unexpected Love is Often the Sweetest I stumbled upon the Enchantment of Emma Fletcher and I am so happy I did. Honestly this book was tantalizing. Just the right amount of anticipation and bread crumbs to keep the reader engaged. My average reading time for a book is 2-5 days and I devoured this book in one sitting. #squadgoals…This is the first book from Ms. Crichton but I sure hope it isn’t the last. The flow was very smooth and the characters were a blast to hang out with. Not too long and not too short this was the perfect size to convey a sweet romance and enable a fun escape. Contemporary for sure but it touched on several literary tropes that made me enjoy it all the more. The Story, Emma feels like a failure and the last thing she wants to do is return to her summer home. She is wanting to erase a haunting nightmare that has taken over her life. First she must run then she must figure out a way to move forward with her life. Emma is none too excited to deal with her alcoholic mother but something has changed. Surprised by what she finds Emma decides to take a chance on a relationship with the person who let her down as a child. Reuniting with her best friend Marley these fabulous duo will capture the sights of two of Stonefall’s most eligible bachelors. Having fun and rediscovering romance is a nice adventure for Emma and she is enjoying herself but the past has a way of creeping up and it really challenges everything she is working towards. The Characters, Emma, Tristan, Marley, and Mateo were all a blast to read about they were definitely my favorite part of this book. Their characters really came to life and brought this story together very nicely. Emma is dealing with a very difficult demon and her personality still shines through and captures the attention of Tristan. Mateo and Marley are the best friends of our lead characters and they were very complementing. If I had to pick a favorite character it would have to be Tristan of course. He is kind and loving and a little broken too. I loved the way he was able to bring Emma’s walls down their love story was an endearing one to read. The End, as I mentioned the past comes calling and Emma has to confront her demons. I really enjoyed the way the author lays out the ending. No one is saved by someone else, these characters each find a way to save themselves. There was a moment there towards the end where I was cringing so this is definitely a read for a more mature audience but overall it was addressed very well. My Rating 4.0 All in ONE Sitting loved this read filled stars!!!

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings A young adult book and a mystery combined that for me just didn't hit the right spot. Emma Fletcher had something happened in her past and it has greatly affected her and she has decided to return home, not that home was the best and safe place to come from. Tristan Banks never left and has been trying to work his way up in life and in walks Emma. The writing was just not great. It read fine, but was just ok. I wanted more from it - beginning, middle and end.

Emma is back in her hometown. She didn't have a nice childhood, but being with people she knows helps her to get over a terrible trauma. She's glad she has her best friend back in her life and her mother seems to have improved a little since the last time she saw her. Emma doesn't have any money, but she's lucky that when her car breaks down she meets Tristan, who helps her to find a job. Tristan makes Emma feel safe and slowly she can start to heal. Will she be able to leave the past behind her and focus on the future? Tristan has been through a lot and isn't planning on seeing someone again. The last time he was with a woman his heart was badly broken and he doesn't ever want that to happen again. However, he does really like Emma. She's a girl he has to be careful with and for the first time since the most terrible moment of his life, that doesn't make him want to stay away. Does Tristan have what it takes to make Emma believe in happiness again or are they both too damaged by their difficult pasts? The Enchantment of Emma Fletcher is an amazing moving story. Emma and Tristan don't have an easy carefree existence and they struggle with grief and guilt. Reading about what happened to them brought tears to my eyes. L.D. Crichton writes about the hard parts of life with empathy and honesty and her descriptions are realistic and vivid. Her main characters truly deserve to be loved and cherished after everything they had to deal with. Emma and Tristan are kind, caring and sweet and I liked how perfect they are for each other. They have a wonderful heartwarming connection. I enjoyed reading about how they support one another and how they slowly open up and break down each other's walls. That made the story impressive and memorable for me. L.D. Crichton's writing has an easy flow. The Enchantment of Emma Fletcher isn't just about romance, the story also has some raw and gripping parts, which gives it plenty of emotional layers. Friendship is as important as love. There's chemistry, but the story is about a lot more than that, the relationship between Emma and Tristan is deep and meaningful. The Enchantment of Emma Fletcher is a fantastic love story with main characters that are beautiful inside and out.

As her Volkswagen Beetle breaks down, we find Emma Fletcher back in her hometown of Stonefall - the place she spent her entire life trying to get away from. After growing up with an alcoholic mother and a past she would rather not remember, she returns only out of necessity - it's the only place she could go. After years of not returning home and every intention of leaving as soon as she can, an old childhood friend rides up on his motorcycle. Desperate to not be remembered, she pretends she does not know him and hesitates when he offers to send for a tow truck. Not only can she not afford it, but she knows it will be Tristan behind the wheel, Mateo’s best friend and by far the best looking man in their small town. Emma, too tired to argue anymore, finally relents and Mateo calls Tristan, telling him to hurry as it’s going to rain and he can’t leave a beautiful girl in the rain. Within ten minutes, Tristan arrives and sees Emma, and upon seeing her, old childhood memories of her flood back into his mind. If he thought the reunion was going to be a warm one, he was sadly mistaken, as she is carrying a secret far darker than he could have ever imagined. Not only is The Enchantment of Emma Fletcher completely suspenseful and captivating, but it will leave you needing a second volume. This is the type of book that you could easily read a little at a time, but you will dread putting it down. Not only is it well-written and descriptive, but it also deals with all too relevant issues in a manner that is taken seriously and gives the reader hope for the future. The way the internal conflicts were handled and tied in with the other characters and the rest of the story was clearly and easily understood, while not sacrificing the serious material. The lessons that were taught in The Enchantment of Emma Fletcher were deep and thought-provoking, not preachy and cliche. It was refreshing to read a book with this subject matter and not feel awkward or as though it was too lightly discussed. It was taken as seriously as it should have been without going overboard and left you with the feeling that no matter what you have been through, no matter how it altered your life, you have the power to slay your dragons and control your future. This was a beautifully tied-together love story where the female conquered her demons thanks to taking control of her own story, not the man saving the damsel. Quill says: The Enchantment of Emma Fletcher is a book you will want to spend the entire day devouring, as it’s impossible to put down.

I loved this small-town story where fears can be overcome and trust regained. It’s also a story of people depending on each other. Emma comes to town with lots of baggage.  Most of us have some or another when a new relationship presents itself.  But what’s lovely about this story is the understanding and interest which Tristan has for Emma.  Everyone knows she’s hot looking, but few look deeper. Marley, Emma’s best friend, and sometimes confidant, is pure and simply a fun character to get to know.  She secretly has a thing for Mateo, and he has been eyeing her for years, daring not to approach her, because she’s just too perfect.  Little does Mateo know, he is as perfect as she is. Fun times when they get together. Tristan and Mateo have been pals forever and they support each other 100%.  Tristan also has come back to this small town to help his dad in the auto shop, after getting a great education.  He sees his roots in this small town and is a man one can count on. Things get bad when Emma’s nightmare comes to town (he’ll be your worst nightmare!).  He did some major physical trauma to Emma when she thought she was interested in him.  She lost her self-esteem, belief in herself, and is totally traumatized–hiding out now where her mom lives.  Thank God, she now has Tristan. I loved the story–the sweetness and courage of the two couples, backing each other up when necessary.  I enjoyed the courage Emma had when Tristan became her thing.  It’s everything a small-town story should entail. Very well written, and I’m delighted I had the chance to read and review.

3.5 stars I'm not usually one for a angsty story, especially when an attack is part of it, but something intrigued me enough to download it. I really liked this cast of characters. Emma, Tristan, Marley, and Mateo are easily some of the best supportive friends, I've ever read. I loved their dynamic and how they were all comfortable together. Of course, when they coupled off I was grinning like a loon. The plot was a bit predictable and maybe a bit clichéd at times, but I did like how Emma grew and started trusting herself. I would have liked a bit more at the end, as it had a good build up and then just rushed through the conflict. Overall, it was a quick, enjoyable read. **Huge thanks to Pocket Star and NetGalley for the invite to read**

The Enchantment of Emma Fletcher was a quick, but well written story. It follows the story of Emma and Tristan. From the moment we meet Emma, there is something a bit mysterious about her. Growing up, she couldn’t leave town fast enough. Now, she finds herself back home, after she was attacked. Her life forever changed in more than one way. She not only has to confront and face her future, but her past as well. The last thing she ever planned on was Tristan. Tristan has a past and secrets of his own, but there is just something about Emma that draws him in. He just knows one thing for certain, he wants Emma and will do whatever it takes to save her… Overall, I thought this was a pretty good read. The story-line pulled me instantly. I was really intrigued by the characters and their pasts. They are the kind of characters that you want to know more about and can’t help but root for. The Enchantment of Emma Fletcher is the debut novel for author L.D. Crichton, and I look forward to checking out more from this author in the future.
