This first book in the Ruby Red/Precious Stones Trilogy is fantastic. The protagonist Gwyneth is fabulous and relatable. She's acting as someone might actually act in her situation. I've heard from other people that they find her a bit annoying in the beginning. I can sort of understand why but I just keep thinking how would you feel in her situation having to deal with her Aunt and Cousin all those years going on about how special her cousin Charlotte is and then poof you're the special one instead. I can only imagine how stressed out Gwyneth is during the first few days. Gideon doesn't help much either. He's sort of an asshole in the entire book but at the same time you can't help but ship the two of them together. They fight as if they are already married. I do hope things work out for them in the end.
