Summary: Sixteen-year-old Jules Verity knows exactly what's in store at her new job at castle-turned-dinner-theater Tudor Times. Some extra cash, wearing a fancy-pants dress, and plenty of time to secretly drool over the ever-so-tasty--and completely unavailable--Grayson Chandler. Except that it's not quite what she imagined.

For one, the costume Jules has to wear is awful. Then there's the dead body she finds that just kind of...well, disappears. Oh, and there's the small issue of Jules and her episodes of what her best friend calls "Psychic Tourette's Syndrome"--spontaneous and uncontrollable outbursts of seemingly absurd prophecies.

The only bright side? This whole dead body thing seems to have gotten Grayson's attention. Except that the more Jules investigates, the more she discovers that Grayson's interest might not be as courtly as she thought. In fact, it's starting to look suspicious...


My Thoughts: At first, I thought it was going to be a cute contemporary read, but then I read the synopsis and I can't help but be intrigued.

  1. I'm ashamed to say that I had dismissed this book after looking at the cover and reading the first line, but I'm glad you shared it now because it definitely sparked my interest with the whole dead body thing! (I'm not sure what that says about me XD) happy reading
