{{Book Review}} The Beautiful Pretender | 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? 






*My Review*
I have only read one other book by Melanie Dickerson & I really enjoyed it. In true Disney fairy tale fashion,Dickerson's newest book, "The Beautiful Pretender" drew me in from the moment I read the snippit about the book. I love the setting and realistic feel the characters had while fighting for their new love. I strongly recommend this book anyone looking for a good book to read.
