New Review of Temple of Indra's JEWEL by StoreyBook Reviews

Jan 10, 2017Leslie aka StoreyBook Reviews rated it it was amazing · review of another edition Shelves: books-to-review20172017-cozy-challenge Visit StoreyBook Reviews This book has a little bit of everything in it - mystery, suspense, romance, time travel and mysticism. It is bound to appeal to nearly everyone!

I had no idea what to expect when I said I would review this book. I like all forms of mystery so figured it couldn't be bad at all. I was not expecting to be kept on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next. And the ending? Leaves you hanging so you HAVE to read the next book to see how the story continues. (love and hate that!).

I thought Sophia was a brave character especially when she traveled back in time and had to adjust. At least she is a librarian and works in a historical section, so she was able to adapt somewhat to the times.

I thought it was interesting that the premise is that spirits are stuck due to bad choices and the same ones stick togethe…

Paula Ratcliffe rated it it was amazing · review of another edition Shelves: kindlevirtual-book-tourfor-reviewe-bookgreat-escapes-book-toursread-in-2017 This book follows Sophia Marcil and Princess Sapphira and a cursed stone 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…

Buy now Curse – Amazon  Former Librarian turned Time Traveler, Sophia Marcil is looking forward to a shiny new beginning, and that’s just what she gets when the man of her dreams proposes. Unfortunately, the ring Cullen O’Kelley slips on her finger holds a piece of the very sapphire that’s cursed her.   Meanwhile sixteen year old Zafira Breathour is catchin’ more hell than usual. She accused her friend’s wealthy fiancĂ© of putting another girl in the puddin’ club and it's threatening the family business. Without explaining her gift for insightful dreams, Zafira has no way to prove her accusations. So now she’s stuck polishing this new purple sapphire while contemplating exile. Cue the blood moon. Zafira wakes from a doozy of a nightmare and stumbles upon a spell in her father's study. Next thing Sophia knows, she's been wrenched back to a stately home in 1920, and into the body of her…


Smuggling, Bootlegging and Speakeasies: How to Whoop it up and Look Good Doing It
When writing the second book in my time traveling bibliophile series, the TEMPLE OF INDRA’S CURSE, main character Sophia Marcil is pulled back in time once again. This time she’s sent into the past life of her own Great Aunt, a young and rebellious Zafira Breathour. I researched many different aspects of the 1920s while writing this book: Fashion, Art Deco, and of course Prohibition and how it would have affected, the Breathour family during the 1920’s in a tempered Toronto. What I discovered was that while Prohibition was meant to eradicate the temptation of liquor, it had the unintended effect of making it fashionable. As fashionable as Clara Bow with her wavy bob, pencil thin eyebrows and rebellious spirit. Temperance act and raids be damned. By barring liquor from the masses, the government unwittingly turned many law-abiding citizens into criminals. Generation Y also known as the ‘me me me’ kids of to…
