In this reverse reimagining of the Cinderella story, secrets and dangerous enemies threaten a fairy-tale romance. Adela, daughter of the Duke of Hagenheim, is rarely allowed outside the castle walls. But one day, longing for freedom, she sneaks away to the market disguised as a peasant. There, she meets a handsome young woodcarver named Frederick. Frederick, a poor farmer, is the sole provider for his family, and he often has to defend his mother from his father's drunken rages. He dreams of making a living carving beautiful images into wood, and he is thrilled when the Bishop of Hagenheim commissions him to carve new doors for the cathedral. As Frederick works on the project, he and Adela meet almost daily, and it doesn't take long for them to fall in love. Yet her true identity remains hidden from him. When disaster separates them, Adela and Frederick find themselves caught in the midst of deceptions far more dangerous than innocent disguises. As the powerful lords set against them proceed with their villainous plans, secrets emerge that put Frederick and Adela's future at risk. Full-length clean fairy-tale reimagining The final Hagenheim story; can be read as a stand-alone Includes discussion questions for book clubs

A stronger conclusion to the Hagenheim series Melanie Dickerson has put together. Her more recent books have been hit or miss for me and this one fell in the middle. I enjoy this series for a joy-ride read when I need something that's cute and fluffy and won't stress me out. I'm also a sucker for fairy tale retellings in any way. I enjoyed the concept of this book and found the plot easier to buy than some of her other ones (The Orphan's Wish and the Warrior Maiden were a bit of a stretch for me....). Overall an enjoyable read!
