Review: Holding Court by K.C. Held

Title: Holding Court
Series: Stand-Alone
Author:  K.C. Held
Genre: Young Adult, Mystery, Romance
Published Date: March 1st 2016 by Entangled Teen
Format: e-arc
Source: I received this arc by the publisher  Entangled Teen  in exchanged for an hones review.
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...

Where do I start I absolutely and utterly loved and enjoyed Holding Court, that I've been having some heath issues recently that I really needed and pick me up. And Holding Court was the perfect book too pick my spirits up. I was laughing and giggling from the very first page until the very end of the book. I totally love everything about this awesome book, it was a light cozy murder mystery with full of fluffy romance that I absolute love and adore. Especially the writing style was flawless and kind of lyrical to me that I wanted to read more of the story when it ended. Now I really don't read a lot of contemporary books, but this one really stuck too me. Ok I really don't want to go into any details about Holding Court. But Holding Court is about Sixteen-year-old girl name Jules Verity who is trying to buy herself a new car so she won't have to take her bike anymore to go too school. But you see Jules has been fire from a lot of the jobs that she has worked at because of her Psychic Tourette's Syndrome. Yep Jules is a psychic from a long lines of female psychic in her family, but when Jules has a predictions she spontaneous and uncontrollable outbursts says it out loud. Which at first it seems her predictions are utterly silly and ridiculous prophecies, but when you read more into her psychic outburst you can connect her predictions to the plotline. So Jules best friend Cami help her get a great and perfect job interview for her at a castle-turned-dinner-theater Tudor Times. At first Jules didn't want to go too the interview, but after a little persuasion from Cami and her Gran that her huge unavailable crash Grayson Chandler will be working there as well. That she can secretly drool over Chandler from at far so she agree to go too the interview. And she absolutely fit right in a got the job but there is a lot of secrets, mystery and danger surrounding at Tudor Times that Jules is caught right in the middle of it. By the end of Holding Court Jules finally finds out all the secrets and mystery surrounding Tudor Times but will it be too late for her too tell the authorities about what is really going on at Tudor Times. And here is where I am going to leave it of at. I do highly recommend this amazing debut novel because Holding Court really was a very cute, fluffy and adorable book that totally lift my sprits up. I really love and enjoy K.C. Held writing style that I am most definitely going to check out more of her books in the near future!
