Publisher's Summary

Swan Lake meets Robin Hood when the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant by day becomes the region's most notorious poacher by night and falls in love with the forester.
Jorgen is the forester for the wealthy margrave and must find and capture the poacher who has been killing and stealing the margrave's game. When he meets the lovely and refined Odette at the festival and shares a connection during a dance, he has no idea she is the one who has been poaching the margrave's game.
Odette justifies her crime of poaching because she thinks the game is going to feed the poor, who are all but starving, both in the city and just outside its walls. But will the discovery of a local poaching ring reveal a terrible secret? Has the meat she thought she was providing for the poor actually been sold on the black market, profiting no one except the ring of black-market sellers?
The one person Odette knows can help her could also find out her own secret and turn her over to the margrave, but she has no choice. Jorgen and Odette will band together to stop the dangerous poaching ring...and fall in love. But what will the margrave do when he discovers his forester is protecting a notorious poacher?

I'll have to get the text version.

I usually enjoy Dickerson's takes, but this narrator...terrible. She makes it sound like an elocution exercise, not a narration. Her slow, prodding, emotionless voice makes the text sound stupid and inane. I'm disappointed.

But I'm still planning on getting the text version of the book! I just couldn't listen one minute longer!

The narrator makes this book almost painful to listen to.

While the basic premise of the story was charming and intriguing, the execution, both in writing and especially in performance, was lackluster. The narrator read in one long stream without appropriate emotional voice inflections or any attempt to clarify which character was speaking a given line of dialogue. Overall, I'd pass on this one.
