The First book in Kerstin Gier’s Ruby Red Trilogy
Storyline: Gwyneth Shepherd’s sophisticated, beautiful cousin Charlotte has been prepared her entire life for traveling through time. But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth who in the middle of the street takes a sudden spin to a different era! Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history, and work with Gideon-the arrogant time traveler from a similarly gifted family that passes the gene through its male line, and whose presence becomes, in time, less insufferable and more essential. Together, Gwyneth and Gideon journey through time to discover who, in the 18th century and in contemporary London, they can trust.
Alright so I picked it up because I thought it was gonna be a fun cute love story.. but it’s actually not! Don’t get me wrong it is a super fun and clever and witty book. But there’s not really much of any love story in this book.. it also doesn’t have much action or anything like that. But something about this book was just so light and happy and it was such a joy to read.. I couldn’t put it down. I haven’t read many –if any– time traveling books! And it was absolutely fascinating! Such a great plot, with a bunch of underlying twists. And although you can see plot twists coming, they are still amazing and creative. I also Couldn’t even tell that it was a book translated from German… I’ve read other translated books before and some of them are weird and awkward, but in this one the translation was flawless! I would highly reccomend this series!
I rate this book
