Another winner! The Beautiful Pretender by Melanie Dickerson
about the book...
Melanie Dickerson has penned another winner! "The Beautiful Pretender" has an intriguing plot-line, characters you are sure to fall in love with, and a swoon-worthy ending that is sure to leave readers starry eyed.
Now, I have a confession to make: I actually chose this book for review for my daughter's sake. My daughter absolutely loved Dickerson's book, "The Golden Braid", and so when she saw that this latest book had been released, she absolutely begged to be able to read it! So the book was ordered, and when it arrived in our home it mysteriously disappeared until my daughter suddenly emerged from her room many hours later, declaring that "The Beautiful Pretender" is awesome. She adored the heroine, and she raised several talking points with me about the dilemma Avelina found herself in being forced to lie and use deceit. But here is my confession. I then picked up the book and found that I enjoyed it as much as my daughter did! The book simply bursts with intrigue and danger and excitement, and I couldn't put the book down. Now was the book a wee bit too romantic for a male readers tastes? Perhaps. But I recognize that I am not the typical intended audience and so I don't hold that against the book. I guarantee that if you pick up this novel, you will struggle to put it down, and find yourself enjoying this well-penned tale that will have you smiling and chuckling and then racing to see what happens. And if you don't believe me, then take the word of my daughter, who thinks that all pre-teen readers and up (she is age 11) are going to love this book.
My daughter awards this book 5 out of 5 stars.
