I really enjoyed this book...maybe because the heroine and I share the same name! But, more than that, I loved the writing style and the whole premise. I loved the inner monologue of Kat and the cheery disposition of Guen. So cute...and maybe a keeper. Sorry!
A Connecticut Fashonista in King Arthur's Court is a light and fun time travel. Fashion report Kat Jones is reporting on a medieval fair when a gypsy casts a spell on her and Kat gets knocked back to King Arthur's reign.
The story is a good one. It kept my interest. The writing style was something I'm not used to, but it didn't prevent me from reading the book. It was a twist on the King Arthur tale that I had not heard before.
