The Sweetest Spell (Paperback)
Emmeline Thistle has always had a mysterious bond with cows, beginning on the night of her birth, when the local bovines saved the infant cast aside to die in the forest. But Emmeline was unaware that this bond has also given her a magical ability to transform milk into chocolate, a very valuable gift in a kingdom where chocolate is more rare and more precious than gold or jewels.When Owen Oak, a dairyman's son, teaches Emmeline to churn milk into butter-and she instead creates a delicious chocolate confection-she immediately becomes a target for every greedy, power-hungry person in the kingdom of Anglund. Suzanne Selfors crafts an irresistible re-imagined fairy tale that will tempt readers with a delicious story of love that is sweeter than the richest chocolate.
Magic and romance entwine in this fantastical world where true love and chocolate conquer all.

Praise for The Sweetest Spell
* "An exhilarating, romantic, and frequently funny story of self-discovery"
With a The Princess Bride feel and a hard-won happily ever after, this perky fairy tale will strike a chord with fans of Ella Enchanted and Robin McKinley. A sweet, slow-blooming romance completes the traditional Grimm arc nicely.
With its attractive characters, especially dual narrators Emmeline and Owen, this novel has a power to charm. Sweet indeed
A fun and frothy romantic fantasy.
