The one who needs rescuing isn’t always the one in the tower.
Rapunzel can throw a knife better than any man around. And her skills as an artist rival those of any artist she’s met. But for a woman in medieval times, the one skill she most desires is the hardest one to obtain: the ability to read.
After yet another young man asks for Rapunzel’s hand in marriage, Mother decides they need to move once again, but this time to a larger city. Rapunzel’s heart soars—surely there she can fulfill her dream. But Mother won’t let her close to a man. She claims that no man can be trusted.
After being rescued by a knight on the road to the city, and in turn rescuing him farther down the road, Rapunzel’s opportunity arrives at last. This knight, Sir Gerek, agrees to educate Rapunzel in order to pay back his debt. She just has to put up with his arrogant nature and single-minded focus on riches and prestige.
But this Rapunzel story is unlike any other and the mystery that she uncovers will change everything—except her happily ever after.

My thoughts and giveaway:
Melanie has written another wonderful book. I will be honest I had trouble separating my mind from Disney’s Tangled and that story line.
Oh, but there are so many secrets and things unknown in this story. It will keep you reading and your mind searching for hints which are sprinkled sparingly but enough to keep you reading.
Rapunzel is a determined young lady who wants more for her life even if it means defying her mother.
Gerek is hard to get a handle on. Is he a nice guy or as arrogant as he can come across?
Overall, this is a book like you have come to expect from Melanie. And if you haven’t read anything by her then I encourage you to give this one a try.
