About the book:
A daring rescue. A difficult choice.

Sophie desperately wants to get away from her stepmother’s jealousy, and believes escape is her only chance to be happy. Then a young man named Gabe arrives from Hagenheim Castle, claiming she is betrothed to his older brother, and everything twists upside down. This could be Sophie’s one chance at freedom—but can she trust another person to keep her safe?

Gabe defied his parents Rose and Wilhelm by going to find Sophie, and now he believes they had a right to worry: the girl’s inner and outer beauty has enchanted him. Though romance is impossible—she is his brother’s future wife, and Gabe himself is betrothed to someone else—he promises himself he will see the mission through, no matter what.

When the pair flee to the Cottage of the Seven, they find help—but also find their feelings for each other have grown. Now both must not only protect each other from the dangers around them—they must also protect their hearts.

My thoughts:

The Fairest Beauty was another wonderful fairytale retelling by Melanie Dickerson. I loved how this book connected with The Healer's Apprentice (Gabe is their son). 

While I liked the romance story and thought it was sweet, I'm not 100% sure about the way it played out. But, considering Gabe was less mature in the beginning of this book, I can definitely see why he made the choices he did.

I loved the action scenes where Sophie and Gabe were fighting for their lives - there were a couple really intense ones! The Fairest Beauty also had a couple twists, which I liked.

Overall, I really enjoyed this fairytale retelling of Snow White. It held my attention and was a good read. I recommend it!
