A CONNECTICUT FASHIONISTA IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT
While at a medieval fair, checking out the costumes for an article she doesn't want to write, assistant fashion editor Kat Jones is transported to King Arthur's court. Before long, Kat creates political chaos, befriends sweet Queen Guenevere and fights her attraction to hunky knight Lancelot. Meanwhile, as fun as the Middle Ages are, they're also hazardous to a fashionista's health.
Talented author Mancusi clearly knows her Arthurian lore. She vividly depicts the customs of a bygone era, and the wry, witty ending is perfectly Kat. (May, 352 pp., $6.99)
