Holding Court is about a girl named Jules, who has something her best friend calls “Psychic Tourette's Syndrome” where she blurts out uncontrollable futuristic prophecies, which usually make no sense at the time. When she starts her new summer job at a tourist castle as a crazy psychic nun, she stumbles upon a dead body that suddenly disappears, and she must prove to everyone that she wasn’t hallucinating while trying not to fall for her childhood crush, Grayson, who already has a girlfriend.
Jules was witty and completely hilarious. She had me cracking up until the very end. Actually, all the characters were quirky and fun. Especially Jules’ grandma, Gran, who had an aura matching-making business, drove a hot pink golf cart and spoke in Eleanor Roosevelt quotes.
Overall, I LOVED this novel! It was absolutely amazing! It’s filled with rich medieval history, an endearing romance, quirky characters, a killer mystery and an ending that will leave readers in complete awe! I’m totally hoping for a sequel!
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...
