The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest by Melanie Dickerson


Oh I needed that! What a pleasant book to read. This is a Medieval Fairy Tale that is Christian Romance. Could I figure out what was likely to happen? Yes. It's loosely based on Swan Lake and Robin Hood. But I very much enjoyed the way it was told and has its own plot twists.

Odette was orphaned when little and later taken in by her Uncle. Because she can identify, she becomes a huntress at night in the Margrave's forest, thinking she is taking deer to feed the poor. As it turns out the meat is actually being sold on the black market instead, but she doesn't know it. She does feel badly though when she meets Jorgen, the Forester and begins to care for him. He's charged with finding the poacher - whom he thinks may have killed his adoptive father. (Jorgen was orphaned around the same time as Odette had been.)

Get this book for a pleasing way to relax and just be entertained. One of those books that makes you go ahhhh.  I really enjoy Melanie Dickerson's writing style. And you have to love that cover! I'll be first in line when the next book comes out.
