The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest by Melanie Dickerson (47)

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 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. Jorgen inherited 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?

My review for The Golden Braid




REVIEW:
A great tale!
Think of Robin Hood, as a female, and mix it with a love triangle of sorts. That's pretty much the sum of this book.
It has that 'Disney-ending' I love so much too, where everyone is happy in the end. Well, at least the people who matter.
It was a breeze to read, even if it wasn't as exciting as I had hoped. The story focused more on the romance than the huntress and her ways, though it was in there. I felt like I would have loved more of that side of the story though.
Still, it was a great read, and one that went quickly because of the great writing. Many of you will enjoy it, provided you like a romance. I, personally, can't wait to read more from this author.


3/5

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation.
