(ARC) REVIEW: The Sweetest Spell by

Emmeline Thistle, a dirt-scratcher's daughter, has escaped death twice-first, on the night she was born, and second, on the day her entire village was swept away by flood. Left with nothing and no one, Emmeline discovers her rare and mysterious ability-she can churn milk into chocolate, a delicacy more precious than gold. Suddenly, the most unwanted girl in Anglund finds herself desired by all. But Emmeline only wants one-Owen Oak, a dairyman's son, whose slow smiles and lingering glances once tempted her to believe she might someday be loved for herself. But others will stop at nothing to use her gift for their own gains-no matter what the cost to Emmeline. Magic and romance entwine in this fantastical world where true love and chocolate conquer all.

My Review:
The world Suzanne Selfors has created is unlike anything I have ever read before. The picture that is painted is easy to imagine and she does an amazing job of using such great descriptions and detail. 

Emmeline has felt inferior for most of her life. Not only has she felt inferior with her own people, she is also a part of the dirt-scratchers who are known as the lowest of any in the kingdom. 

A major flood turns her world upside down. She meets Owen who is seriously one of the most amazing guys she has ever met, and not just in the looks department! The journey she embarks on takes her from the bottom of the totem poll to the highest of highs all while managing to unravel secrets that have been kept for as long as anyone can remember. 

A beautifully woven and highly unique story! Emmeline was easy to connect to and root for! There was just enough mystery to keep readers turning the pages and the romance was sweet and innocent but a great one just the same!
