WREADING WEDNESDAY-on-SATURDAY – FEATURED BOOK and GIVEAWAY – THE HUNTRESS OF THORNBECK FOREST by MELANIE DICKERSON

 

In honor of the Seekerville Blog Blitz Author interviews, and in Melanie’s absence, I give you The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest, the first of her books I read—and loved.

 

The “True” Stories Behind the Fairy Tales … Fairy Tale Retellings set in Medieval Europe.”

 

 

THE BLURB

A beautiful maiden who poaches to feed the poor.

A handsome forester on a mission to catch her.

Danger and love are about to unite in Thornbeck Forest.

The margrave owns the finest hunting grounds for miles around—and who teaches children to read, but by night this young beauty has become the secret lifeline to the poorest of the poor.

For Jorgen Hartman, the margrave’s forester, tracking down a poacher is a duty he is all too willing to perform. Jorgen inherited his post from the man who raised him . . . a man who was murdered at the hands of a poacher.

When Jorgen and Odette meet at the Midsummer festival and share a connection during a dance, neither has any idea that they are already adversaries.

The one man she wants is bound by duty to capture her; the one woman he loves is his cunning target . . . What becomes of a forester who protects a notorious poacher? What becomes of a poacher when she is finally discovered?

BLOGWORDS – Wednesday 12 September 2018 – WREADING WEDNESDAY – FEATURED BOOK– MAGNOLIA SUMMER by MELANIE DICKERSON

WREADING WEDNESDAY – FEATURED BOOK – MAGNOLIA SUMMER by MELANIE DICKERSON

                                                                             

THE BLURB:

From New York Times Bestselling author Melanie Dickerson comes a story of romance, heroism, and secret identity. Will this Deep South Zorro succeed in saving his sleepy Southern town?

Truett Beverly returned to Bethel Springs, Alabama, after finishing medical school. Fighting a secret war with a corrupt lawman wasn’t in his plans, but when Sheriff Suggs threatens his childhood friend, Truett dons a cape and hood and becomes the Hooded Horseman, placing him squarely in the sheriff’s crosshairs.

Celia Wilcox arrives in Bethel Springs in June of 1880. She’s come from Nashville to help her sister care for their younger siblings. She hopes only to be on the small farm for the summer, just until her mother recovers from the shock of Celia’s father’s death. She must return to Nashville in order to fulfill her dream of opening her own dress shop.

Celia catches Truett’s eye from the moment she steps off the train. He finds himself wanting to impress her, but she flatly refuses to flirt with him or to fall for his—if he does say so himself—considerable charm. Truth is, Celia’s attraction to Dr. Truett Beverly terrifies her. What will happen when Sheriff Suggs discovers Truett is the Hooded Horseman? Will Celia’s greatest fears come true? Or will she be able to prevent the sheriff from carrying out one last lynching?

BOOK REVIEW – THE BEAUTIFUL PRETENDER by MELANIE DICKERSON

 

beautiful pretender

 

Three regions in the kingdom, and the Duke of Geitbart intends to control them all. The Earl of Plimmwald will do what he must to ensure he maintain his earldom. Including sending a servant girl to pose as his daughter.

 

The king has ordered the Margrave of Thornbeck to  marry, and given him a list of prospective brides—and two weeks to make his choice.

 

Will the servant girl, Avelina, pass as the Duke’s daughter? Can a servant girl truly be believed to be a noble woman? Most importantly, can Avelina divert the Margrave’s attentions away from her? For regardless of what her heart begins to feel—or his—she knows a noble man can never marry her, a mere servant.

 

 

Ms. Dickerson has woven a masterful tapestry of Medieval intrigue. Secrets in the first chapter, obstacles, conflict. And wolves.

I felt for the Margrave as he struggled with his injury, doubly so as it was “suggested” he marry, and soon. I felt Avelina’s insignificance at her mistress’ harsh and critical words. And her dread when expected to deceive the Margrave.

I felt this was not Ms. Dickerson’s strongest writing, but the story speaks for itself, and I did enjoy it. One conflict after another, disaster after disaster, and people dying—this book keeps the reader turning the pages. I know I did.

 

 

I was given a copy of this book in return for my honest review.
