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…
A Nancy Drew-esque story mixed with an awesome Tudor style dinner theatre, what more do you want?
This book is packed with cuteness and all the feels. This is a cute YA murder mystery with a contemporary romance twist. To bring everything together, the murder occurs at the main character, Jules’ workplace, a Tudor inspired theatre inspired restaurant. The plot itself was a little predictable, but thoroughly enjoyable. I had a hunch who the killer was but the journey was worth it. Jules’ “Psychic Tourettes Syndrome” is where Jules blurts out random sentences that do not make sense at the time, but make sense in context. Overall, this is an amazingly sweet murder mystery in the style of Nancy Drew.
Keep Calm and Read On,
