Melanie Dickerson is my favorite author for sure. This book: The Princess spy is very loosely based on the frog prince. A nice story from the Hagenheim series. It is written in a way that focuses on both Margaretha and Colin's viewpoint. Very interesting to read. I would definitely recommend this book to all.

Even considering that I have read most of all fairytale stories involving princesses, it still took me a while to figure out that this book was somewhat related to The Princess and the Frog. There were not as many hints that I found, and the ones I did were either subtle or not subtle at all. The lack hints frustrated me a bit, but that still cannot diminish my standards for the quality of this book! Throughout reading, I enjoyed myself fairly, following the characters' and Margaretha's adventures. Anyhow, the plot just seemed to get more and more interesting as it went along. How can it be possible for the author to write so many books about medieval romances but still keep them all interesting? That would be a good question to ask the author, if I ever had the luck of meeting her! 5/5 - @Siri of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

One of the really good Christian books ( books that have a focus on the characters relationship with God)

Definitely not my favorite in the series- but I enjoyed the way Melanie Dickenson put an emphasis on the amazingness and importance of languages :D

I liked this one better than her last few books. I really enjoyed her first two books, and then didn't like The Fairest Beauty or The Captive Maiden very much. I felt like this one redeemed the author for me. I liked Margaretha, because she talks a lot and is annoying, and also Colin, because he's arrogant. They seemed pretty real to me because of their weaknesses. However, some of their conversations and thoughts were just silly. I find Dickerson tells a lot of what they're thinking instead of showing it. Anyway, I do recommend this book to teenagers and young adults, because it is a fairy tale retelling, it is clean, and it is Christian. I will continue to read Dickerson's books because of this.

I am a Melanie Dickerson fan, for she has written one of my favorite books of all time (her second book, the Merchant's Daughter) and is the only author I know of who writes clean Christian FAIRY TALE re-tellings. And I do love her books for that reason. But...this one lacked something for me. The weird thing is, I have found that I enjoy Dickerson's EVEN numbered books in this series better than the odd-numbered. The books in this series (in order) are The Healer's Apprentice, The Merchant's Daughter, The Fairest Beauty, The Captive Maiden, and the Princess Spy. I read the Merchant's Daughter first. My favorites are the Merchant's Daughter and the Captive Maiden (which are REALLY good, you need to read them). But the other 3...including this title...they were just..."eh". Not too spectacular. Don't get me wrong, I like Dickerson's books, but she has this thing...where she's kinda inconsistent and repetitive in her writing. She's getting better, but...I don't know, it's still not as good as it could be. Don't misunderstand me, I LOVED how this connected Margaretha (the daughter of Rose and Wilhelm from the Healer's Apprentice) to Colin (the grandson of Ranulf and Annabel from The Merchant's Daughter, and is every bit as DREAMY and PERFECT as he should be). Margaretha's character was very good; she was definitely a more independent heroine. Colin might be a little bit more shallow and straight-cut, but I feel that if the author had delved DEEPER into him, we might have felt his character better. This book was just okay, in my opinion, NOTHING compared to The Merchant's Daughter and The Captive Maiden (which you absolutely MUST read). Read if you like how it sounds, or if you're interested in continuing Dickerson's series.

Margaretha has got pretty much everything-a loving family, position and wealth as the great Duke Wilhelm's oldest daughter, her own horse...everything except a suitor. Scaring off practically every one with her horrid habit of talking too much, Margaretha is relieved when Lord Claybrook, a elaborate man all the way from England, shows interest in her. She would probably have accepted his wedding proposal if Colin hadn't shown up, half-dead, muttering in English that only Margaretha could translate. Muttering that Lord Claybrook was the one who tried to kill him. At first thinking him daft, Margaretha doesn't believe a word-until Colin asks her to spy on Claybrook and learn his plots for herself. Swept into an adventure she would have never thought possible, Margaretha and Colin go on the run, fighting against time to rescue her family and her people. But, amidst peril and hardship, can love bloom, even though an entire ocean separates them?

This is a book about a girl who talks too much. It drives everyone crazy. Until the day that the fact that she talks too much actually helps her save the lives of other people and win the heart of a hero. A hero who as BLUE eyes (you will be endlessly reminded of the color as you read).
