Today I am reviewing The Beautiful Prentender by Melanie Dickerson.
Here is a brief synopsis:
What happens when a margrave realizes he’s fallen in love with a servant?
The Margrave of Thornbeck has to find a bride, fast. He invites ten noble-born ladies from around the country to be his guests at Thornbeck Castle for two weeks, a time to test these ladies and reveal their true character.
Avelina is only responsible for two things: making sure her deception goes undetected and avoiding being selected as the margrave’s bride.
Since the latter seems unlikely, she concentrates on not getting caught.No one must know she is merely a maidservant, sent by the Earl of Plimmwald to stand in for his daughter, Dorothea.
Despite Avelina’s best attempts at diverting attention from herself, the margrave has taken notice. And try as she might, she can’t deny her own growing feelings.
But something else is afoot in the castle.Something sinister that could have far worse—far deadlier—consequences.Will Avelina be able to stop the evil plot? And at what cost?
This is such a great series!
Melanie Dickerson has been a favorite author of mine — since the first time I read one of her books! And she continues to bless me with her stories!
If you not a fan of Melanie Dickerson, I would suggest you give her a try… her books are spiritual (without being preachy), romantic (without being sappy), adventurous (and a bit scary, but not too much) and completely awesome! After reading the first chapter, you can tell Melanie has gone above and beyond in doing her research, and it shows in her books.
If you are a fan of Melanie, I would suggest, if you haven’t read it, that you read The Huntress of Thornbeck. Then dive into The Beautiful Pretender. But make sure you have lots of time, because you’re not going to want to stop reading!
And, if you’re like me, when you’re done, you’ll be ready for another . . . but we have to wait, at least for awhile, until the next one is released.
The Beautiful Pretender can be read as a stand-alone, but as it involves the characters in The Huntress of Thornbeck, it’s best to read them together.
I’m not saying anything else . . . if I haven’t convinced you to read the story, you’re just going to miss out on a great story — and a great series. All kidding aside, get a copy. read it. Just read it.
You’re gonna love it!!
God Bless You!
