Giveaway: Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier

Red Ruby is the first book in a new series, and quite frankly, it sounds great! Here’s a bit more about it:

Gwyneth Shepherd's sophisticated, beautiful cousin Charlotte has been prepared her entire life for traveling through time. But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth, who in the middle of class takes a sudden spin to a different era!

Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history, and work with Gideon--the time traveler from a similarly gifted family that passes the gene through its male line, and whose presence becomes, in time, less insufferable and more essential. Together, Gwyneth and Gideon journey through time to discover who, in the 18th century and in contemporary London, they can trust.

  20. Most likely I'd miss the internet/my laptop. There's just so much information out there and it's the easiest way to absorb it all. I'm always wanting to know more about this or that. And it's especially helpful in helping me locate new books to indulge in!

  25. Indoor plumbing, I grew up poor, and I'm still pretty poor, lol, so other things like Internet and A/C aren't that important to me. Being clean is.

    Thanks for the giveaway sweetie.

  33. If I were traveling back in time I think I'd miss contact lenses, because I wouldn't be able to see. I might be able to wear some type of glasses, but they don't work well for me, so it would be hard to deal with that.

  34. I honestly don't know how to pick one thing, but the first thing that came to mind was indoor plumbing and I laughed when I saw how many other people said that. Electricity would be neck and neck with it. Thanks for the giveaway.
