The Princess Spy by Melanie Dickerson - Review of the fifth book in the Healer's Apprentice series

Margaretha has always been a romantic, and hopes her newest suitor, Lord Claybrook, is destined to be her one true love. But then an injured man is brought to Hagenheim Castle, claiming to be an English Lord who was attacked by Claybrook and left for dead. And only Margaretha--one of the few who speaks his language--understands the wild story.

Margaretha finds herself unable to pass Colin's message along to her father, the duke, and convinces herself "Lord Colin" is just an addled stranger. Then Colin retrieves an heirloom she lost in a well, and asks her to spy on Claybrook as repayment. Margaretha knows she could never be a spy--not only is she unable to keep anything secret, she's sure Colin is completely wrong about her potential betrothed. Though when Margaretha overhears Claybrook one day, she discovers her romantic notions may have been clouding her judgment about not only Cokin but Claybrook as well. It is up to her to save her father and Hagenheim itself from Claybrook's wicked plot.

Even though this book was not my usual genre, and how I happened to pick the fifth in a series to read I don't know, I'm still shaking my head at that, I found the book very good. It is a young adult book but also fun for adults to read as well. This book is full of action, romance, adventure and not to mention faith. Melanie did a good job of developing the characters so much so that you felt as if you knew them personally. After you read this book you will find yourself going back to find more books by this author. A enjoyable read for everyone.

I received this book from Book Look Bloggers for an honest review and that is what I have given here.
