REVIEW: The Princess Spy by Melanie Dickerson

REVIEW: The Princess Spy by Melanie Dickerson

{About the Book}

Margaretha has always been a romantic, and hopes her newest suitor, Lord Claybrook, is destined to be her one true love. But then an injured man is brought to Hagenheim Castle, claiming to be an English lord who was attacked by Claybrook and left for dead. And only Margaretha---one of the few who speaks his language---understands the wild story. Margaretha finds herself unable to pass Colin's message along to her father, the duke, and convinces herself 'Lord Colin' is just an addled stranger. Then Colin retrieves an heirloom she lost in a well, and asks her to spy on Claybrook as repayment. Margaretha knows she could never be a spy---not only is she unable to keep anything secret, she's sure Colin is completely wrong about her potential betrothed. Though when Margaretha overhears Claybrook one day, she discovers her romantic notions may have been clouding her judgment about not only Colin but Claybrook as well. It is up to her to save her father and Hagenheim itself from Claybrook's wicked plot.

{My Review}

Rating: 4.5 stars!!

Melanie Dickerson's newest release, The Princess Spy, was an absolute joy to read. I have only read one other book in her Faerie-tale series and I loved it. So I knew I would have to get my hands on a copy of this novel. And I am so glad I did. This retelling of The Princess and the Frog was a breath of fresh air. Different enough to be an original story for Melanie, but also enough to recognize that this is a retelling. Fantastic job Mel!!
