The Fairest Beauty by Melanie Dickerson, Book Review

Blurb from the book:

A daring rescue. A difficult choice. Sophie desperately wants to get away from her stepmother's jealousy, and believes escape is her only chance to be happy. Then a young man named Gabe arrives from Hagenheim Castle, claiming she is betrothed to his older brother, and everything twists upside down. This could be Sophie's one chance at freedom---but can she trust another person to keep her safe? Gabe defied his parents Rose and Wilhelm by going to find Sophie, and now he believes they had a right to worry: the girl's inner and outer beauty has enchanted him. Though romance is impossible---she is his brother's future wife, and Gabe himself is betrothed to someone else---he promises himself he will see the mission through, no matter what. When the pair flee to the Cottage of the Seven, they find help---but also find their feelings for each other have grown. Now both must not only protect each other from the dangers around them---they must also protect their hearts.

My Review:

Melanie Dickerson weaves a beautiful Christian re-telling of Snow White in The Fairest Beauty!  I was hooked from the first page all the way until the last page!  The pages flew by so quickly!  It was the kind of story that you just want to sit and read without stopping.  The characters were amazing, and I loved the adventure, action and budding romance!  Ms. Dickerson added her own twists to the original tale that I really appreciated.  It made a story that you expect to know everything about surprising and much more interesting!  The Fairest Beauty had everything I love and need in a good book!  I highly recommend it to all fairy tale fans!  Five stars and I hope that Melanie Dickerson is writing more soon!  

You can pick up The Fairest Beauty via Amazon or Zondervan.

Happy Reading!!!
