The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest by Melanie Dickerson

Five stars

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?

It has been a while since I read this book but I still remember how amazing it was! I almost enjoyed this series more than the Hagenheim series, though that is a hard comparison to make since I love both series so very much. The point is, this book was amazing!

It shone with all of Melanie Dickerson’s talent and hard work she put into this book. The story was superb and the characters were so fun! I loved the plot so very much no matter how cliché it might be. The story was wonderful and that’s all that mattered.

If you are a fan of Melanie Dickerson’s books or even if you haven’t read one yet, chances are you will thoroughly enjoy this tale! It’s full of mystery and drama that kept me guessing till the end. Truly remarkable!

“He had danced with fair maidens before, but Odette was different. She was graceful and beautiful, but there was something in her eyes and in the things she said, an intelligence and a boldness that belied her quiet demeanor.”

― Melanie Dickerson, The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest
