Product Description

Jorgen is the gamekeeper for the wealthy margrave, and he is in pursuit of the poacher who has been killing and stealing the margrave's game. When he meets the lovely and refined Odette at the festival and shares a connection during a dance, he has no idea that at night she is the one who has been poaching the margrave's game.

Odette is caught up in a ring of black market sellers of poached animals. She thinks the game is going to feed the poor, who are all but starving, both in the city and just outside its walls. However, most of the animals are being sold by the greedy leader of the ring-her stepfather. When Odette discovers what he is doing, she threatens to expose him, putting herself in great danger.

Publisher's Description

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 Odette Menkels spends her nights poaching his deer to feed the hungry orphans of Thornbeck. By day, Odette is a simple maiden 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. Jorgeninherited 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?

    This review was written for The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest - eBook.
    Melanie Dickerson's newest novel, The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest, will keep you on the edge of your seat and turning pages until you finish the book! An enjoyable story, it is modeled after Robin Hood and Swan Lake according to the author.

    Odette Menkels is the adopted daughter of her uncle, Rutger. Orphaned at a young age, she was left to live life on the streets until her uncle rescued her.

    Odette remembers being hungry and has vowed to help other orphans. She has become an adept and cunning huntress in the forest of the margrave. She feels justified in her hunting. After all, the margrave's forest is full of deer, enough to feed many of the city's poor and starving orphans.

    Jorgen Hartman is the margrave's forester and has been tasked with tracking down a poacher. He takes his assignment seriously because the man who raised him was murdered by a poacher. As he begins to track down the hunter, he notices eerie similarities between the earlier murder and the current hunter's arrows and hunting style. Could they possibly be the same person, after all this time?

    Odette and Jorgen meet at the Midsummer Festival and feel an immediate connection. As they dance and exchange stories, Odette realizes Jorgen was an orphan too. However, even worse, he is her sworn enemy, as he has vowed to capture the elusive Thornbeck hunter.

    As Odette continues with her hunting, she realizes something is wrong, but can she solve the mystery? Will Jorgen realize who she is and turn her in to the margrave? If he turns her in, will the margrave execute her?

    The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest is written for the Young Adult (YA) market; however, it will appeal to older readers also.

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest is a modern twist on a stories that we all know: Swan Lake and Robin Hood. The book's feminine heroine is Odette, is poaching in Thornbeck forest to try and provide food for the poor people of her town. Jorgen is the handsome forester that is in charge of finding the poacher, whom he is unaware is the beautiful woman that he has taken a sudden liking too, even though she's above his station. I love how when Odette faces a cross road in her life, she turns to God for guidance and has faith that he will guide her in what she should do. The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest is another wonderful book by Melanie Dickerson, just as all her other books are.

    (I was given an advanced readers copy by the author and the above is my honest review.)

    The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest ( A Medieval Fairy Tale )

    by: Melanie Dickerson

    Wow, What a story, The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest is the best book that I have read in a while . Melanie Dickerson weaves together a Medieval fairy tale based on Swan Lake and Robin Hood. I would say that this book is more for a broader audience and not just for the young. The Huntress grabbed me right at the first and did not let go till the end ,and then was sad to see it end. It seem like I could not read fast enough to see what was going to happen next. At times i felt tears rolling down my face. I loved the characters Odette and Jorgen. Odette is a beautiful young maiden who is very kind. Jorgen is a handsome Margraves Forester. They both have had a hard childhood life. I loved the spiritual parts woven throughout the story. The Huntress of Thornbeck is one book you do not want to miss out on, it is a good clean romance. Melanie Dickerson did not disappoint me and I cant wait till the next book . I was given an ARC from the author for my honest review, which I have given.

    Another one of my favorite February reads. Melanie Dickerson knows how to write fairy tale like stories with beautiful characters. I was excited to see the description of this book and couldn't wait to read it!

    I was not disappointed at all. The story is well written, strong and full of mystery. This is one of those books where you literally ache with the characters and find yourself cheering right along with them as they learn great lessons of faith, trust, love and forgiveness. I love when a book can capture so much feeling in its pages!

    History comes alive with this sweet tale!

    I LOVE being a book reviewer!

    Thomas Nelson has made an excellent choice with Melanies newest story and theyve made this fan a very happy reader!

    I could hardly wait to get my hands on this one and once I did, I couldnt read it fast enough!

    Melanie Dickerson tells or I should say retells fairy tales better than anyone else Ive ever read!

    Once you start reading, you wont be able to put it down either. Not only are the stories fascinating, the characters are exceptionally crafted and the fairy tale elements are perfectly sprinkled in to make this just as wonderful as anything you will have read by Grimm or Perrault!

    In this case, Melanie has taken two stories and woven them together to create a rich tapestry of danger, deception and daring-do!

    I refuse to give away even a shred of this magnificent story but I will tell you that Melanies talent has taken the extra step required to move from the YA market to a book that will appeal to Adults just as much maybe even more than Melanies young adult audience.

    I will say this though do NOT think you know whats coming with this story! Melanie will not only have you swooning with her romance, shell have you on the edge of your seat with the danger Odette faces. And you will NEVER see the end coming!
