Time-travel books are by far my favorite type of book. Even more than fae books.
I freeze and gape in horror at what I just typed. “Le gasp! How dare I?”
Oh, I dare.
Before No Good Deed by Kara Connolly appeared on the “new books” shelf in the library, I’d exhausted the Young Adult department’s time-travel selection. Basically, I saw it, snatched it up, and almost forgot to check it out before I staggered out of the library, already nose-deep in it.
Ellie Hudson is on the road to a gold medal for the U. S. Olympic archery team, but, when she makes a wrong turn in the caverns under Nottingham Castle, she ends up in medieval England. Ellie doesn’t care how she got to the Middle Ages, she just wants to get home. But, as she spends time in the past, she sees that people are suffering and she has the skills to make it better.
Filled with humorous outlaws, dashing knights, and cunning royals, Kara Connolly delivers a fantastic romp. Well-paced and fairly historically accurate (for a time-travel and a spin on Robin Hood), I read it in one sitting. Heck, I cried when it ended.
No Good Deed hit the bull’s eye, so I award it five out of five gold stars.
