My Nails and My Book Review - Temple of Indra's Jewel by Rachael Stapleton

**Press Sample**

Title: Temple of Indra's Jewel
Series: Time-Traveling Bibliophile #1
Author: Rachel Stapleton

Goodreads Summary: This Librarian is Just Killing Time…Travel

Sophia Marcil loves her grandmother’s twisted tales almost as much as the sapphire ring passed down to her. Wearing it, however, could be her downfall. After slipping the jewel onto her finger she is pushed from a cliff—landing splat in the middle of 19th Century Monaco, where a killer plot to seize the throne could consume her entire future—past and present. Sophia believes she’s being forced into an eccentric millionaire’s dinner theatre but a hidden diary, a secret passage and a whispered conversation reveal to her that the role of a princess is not all fun and games. With the help of a man from outside the palace walls, Sophia undertakes a spellbinding journey straight out of a Grimm tale. Learning the gem’s secrets and the powerful curse behind it are only the beginning. With time and the constant threat of death hanging over her, she must take a page out of her own history to hunt down someone who isn't killing by the book. Can she do it before she’s checked out for good?

My Review: **I voluntarily reviewed this ARC**

Wow! That was such a unique book. It did get a bit complicated and hard to follow at times, but it does all come together by the end. The "who" in the past was definitely a shocker. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more of this series.

My Manicure: I love it when I have an excuse to use one of my favorite polishes. Since the book centers around a purple sapphire, it made perfect sense to use KBShimmer Royal to a Fault. Then I stamped a diamond on it with Mash 54 and Bundle Monster So Metal to represent it being cut to fit in a jewelry set. So pretty.
