Description:


This Librarian is Just Killing TimeTravel. Sophia Marcil loves her grandmother’s twisted tales almost as much as the sapphire ring passed down to her. Wearing it, however, could be her downfall. 

After slipping the jewel onto her finger she is pushed from a cliff—landing splat in the middle of 19th Century Monaco, where a killer plot to seize the throne could consume her entire future—past and present. Sophia believes she’s being forced into an eccentric millionaire’s dinner theatre but a hidden diary, a secret passage and a whispered conversation reveal to her that the role of a princess is not all fun and games. With the help of a man from outside the palace walls, 

Sophia undertakes a spellbinding journey straight out of a Grimm tale. Learning the gem’s secrets and the powerful curse behind it are only the beginning. With time and the constant threat of death hanging over her, she must take a page out of her own history to hunt down someone who isn’t killing by the book. Can she do it before she’s checked out for good?

My Thoughts: 

This book follows Sophia Marcil and Princess Sapphira and a cursed stone set that has been passed in Sophia's family.  When her boyfriend proposes and pops the ring on Sophia's finger she gets thrown into the 19th Century as Princess Sapphira of Monaco.  There nothing is what it seems as there seems to be a lot of political things going on around Sophia.  As she peices things together she gets thrown back and forth between the present and the 19th century.  Will Sophia ever break the curse or is she stuck with it to repeat itself?

This book was so good I bought all three and can't wait to see what is next for Sophia as like any great book it left you wanting to know more.  This book was full of so many great characters Irish Cullen who saves Sophia a few times over to truly bad characters that make you want to run the other way.  Stuck in the middle of it all is Sophia and Cullen and Viktor and Sapphira.  What happens next is anyone's guess!

Next in the series is:
