The Beautiful Pretender by Melanie Dickerson


The king of The Holy Roman Empire has suggested Reinhart Stolten, Margrave of Thornbeck get married. The ladies suggested by the king are invited for 2 weeks and submitted to “tests’ to allow Reinhart to chose a wife. Lady Fronicka wants to marry Reinhart to get Thornbeck for her father. Avelina is sent to take Lady Dorothea’s place and not let anyone know who she is or let Reinhart chose her. Reinhart shows favor to Avelina and her life is put in danger by Lady Fronicka.

The story is a historical fiction based in 1363. This is a good book to curl up with and just get lost. There is suspense, who will Reinhart chose to be his wife, will Avelina be found out and who is behind the bad things happening. Avelina prays for Lady Magdalen to be the one chosen, she prays for Reinhart’s safety. She stays strong when times get tough regardless of what others think of her. The story progressed quickly, some parts of the story were easy to predict but some were a total surprise. I would recommend this book to young adults and adults alike.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers  book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
