Holding Court
Blurb (from Goodreads0:
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 rating: 3.12 of 5 stars

Holding Court “Mermaids blush when clothes unmake the man!”

This was a YA mystery story, about a girl who had sudden psychic premonitions.

Juliet was a cute character, and her little outbursts were quite funny. She seemed to be really intent on finding out what had happened to the missing dead body she discovered, although she seemed a bit clueless at times!

The storyline in this was about Juliet getting a new job, and discovering a dead body in a secret passage that then went missing! This was an enjoyable read, although the pace was a little slow in places.

The ending to this was pretty good, and I was happy with the way things were resolved. Things did seem a little unrealistic on the romance front though.

6.25 out of 10
