Mandy's pretty successful at this until her parents decide it's time to move from Boston to the quiet seaside town of York Beach, Maine, to "be closer to Nana".

Mandy is just a girl that want to get through high school and head off into the world of bigger and better things. Her parents decide to move closer to her grandmother in order to help the older woman out. The problem is, it's Mandy's senior year. Oh, and the town they are moving to is always cold and gray. Mandy is anything but happy to be moving to this strange little sea side town that seems to have more mysteries and quirky people than she really feels comfortable arou

Enchanted is a pretty magicial read. It has a killer bad guy. I liked the other characters but I was truely impressed by the depth of the villian-ness of (blank). I really liked how it was history repeating itself too. I like those kinds of books, where you have to look to the past to figure out what happened and then change things so this time it turns out the way it should have.

The powers in Enchanted kind of reminded me of those in Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder. They are both more healin

Seventeen year old Mandy is moving back to the small town of York Beach, Maine. Her parents feel its time for to be around her Nana full time. Little does she know, how life changing this will be, and what she perceived as fictional, turns out to be real.

Mandy is working at Nana's flower shop, Enchanted Dew Drop, making friends, has her first boyfriend, and is starting her Senior year at a new school. She listens to rumors that her great, great, great grandmother was a healer

I've said this before, and I'm going to say it again. Can't YA paranormal indie books STOP being so uniformed. This book like many others before or after it have the same uniformed plot. Girl moves in with grandparent(s), finds out she's a paranormal, falls in love, gets kidnapped and nearly killed, gets saved by boyfriend who is a paranormal or a human, and then they live happily ever after. Names, place, type of paranormal and the bad guys are the only things that change.

For the record, Encha

This story was a nice change of pace for me. I haven’t read any outright witchcraft stories in awhile. I liked the premise of the story. It’s an interesting idea that Wells came up with.

That said, I did have a couple issues with the story. This book suffered from a classic case of “show, don’t tell.” Mostly at the beginning, it starts slow because how much is told to the reader rather than shown. As the story goes on, things get better, but the pacing of the story is rushed. Because it’s rushed,

Mysteries, secrets, psychics, and witches all come together to create a tale that is truly "Enchanted."

Mandy is moving to York Beach, Maine to be near her Nana in her senior year. Blending into her environment and not causing notice to herself is how she would like it, but unforeseen rumors and secrets from the past surface making this way of going through life impossible. New friendships, romance, and mystery keep her life everything but uneventful. Come follow her story as she learns and grow

If you like fun, mystery, action and romance, then you will love Enchanted! Get ready to go through an emotional roller coaster as we take this magical ride with Mandy as the pilot. You will laugh, cry, and cheer for Mandy as you race through the pages.

Mandy is an average girl who just wants to blend in. When her parents move her from Boston to Maine, she feel like life will end in this boring town. What she soon discovers is that nothing is as it seems in this li
I wasn't sure what to expect with Enchanted by Rachel Wells. I knew that it had something to do with magic but I wasn't entirely sure what.
Enchanted took the magic aspect and gave it a different approach. It was quite refreshing because it wasn't exactly magic, it was a little more realistic than spells and wand waving. It was really good.
I always love flowers and magic surrounding flowers so Enchanted was my kind of read.
As for the characters, I really liked Mandy and Steve. They were pretty aw

Mandy is a girl that is quiet and likes it like this. Her family has lived in the city for most of her life. So, when she moves to a quiet town with her family and her nana, she completely feels it can be a bad experience. Mandy has no idea how right she is.
The characters themselves were striking and the plot felt very strong and I couldn't not tell which was better. Mandy isn't the outgoing girl or totally shy type but a good

Mandy is an unsuspecting leading lady. She's shy and kind of a whiner. Hey, she's a teenager. Teenagers are angsty, right? At first I was not cool with her. The book moved kinda slow in the beginning.

Once Mandy starts working at her grandmothers flower shop all kinds of interesting things start to happen. Turns out Mandy is from a long line of healers and she gets to learn the trade. Mandy is skeptical at first and wants nothing to do with it. Besides she has other things to worry about because

Epic story about a seventeen year old girl named Mandy who goes to stay with her grandmother and finds herself caught up in a centuries old mystery and learning that things are not always what they appear to be.

I loved this story it was very exciting and caught and held my attention from the beginning. It had some great imagery. Mandy was a great character and I had fun finding friends and figuring out the mysteries from her past with her. I highly recommend this story to anyone who loves a good
