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...

In a Oyster shell – An amusing YA paranormal mystery that was very enjoyable.
The Pearls –
The story premise was fun, on par with the whole book. The special abilities she gave the ladies of Jules family were unique and made for a one of a kind story. I was so pleased with it. I was thinking of how many people I could shove this book upon. It was so good.
The prose was clever, witty, and just straight hilarious. The author had a great sense of humor and I laughed out loud a few times.
The setting was well thought out and pulled you right into the story. An eccentric wealthy guy that will spare no expense recreating the middle ages was just fabulous! The characters were well distinguished and defined.
The Sand – There was a sentence or two that didn’t make sense.
Side Note – There is a very unexpected LGBT element to the story.
