Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier
I loved it, though I found Gwyneth, the main character to be a little dim at times. I do felt bad for her cousin Charlotte because she spent her whole childhood preparing to be a time traveller, only to find out that she wasn't the one with the time travelling gene. Though I didn't feel that bad because she is a snooty b word. Despite the dangers time travellers face I think Gwyneth is very lucky.
I mean how awesome is it to find out that you can time travel and then you even get an attractive older guy who can fence, play the violin and speak a ton of foreign languages to accompany you. I have to say though, it was so short and ended quite abruptly. I am really happy that I don't have to wait for the next book to come out because that would drive me absolutely nuts! I really enjoyed reading it, I was so captivated that I couldn't put it down. And I liked how the epilogue confirmed my suspicions about her origins. I am quite curious to find out how things progress with Gideon, the sexy violin playing time traveller, and Lucy and Paul the chronograph thieves. Anyone that likes fantasy, history, London, and a little romance can enjoy this quick read.
