Novella Review: Kingdom Keepers: Unforeseen by Ridley Pearson

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I jumped at the chance to review Unforeseen because I love all things Disney.  My favorite vacation destination is the Happiest – and most Expensive- Place on Earth – the Disney resorts in Florida.  I drag Dean there, year after year, revisiting the same attractions, eating the same Mickey Bars, and riding the same rides, with a few exceptions.  The addition of Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom means unseen experiences, as does the remodel of Downtown Disney into Disney Springs, so you can bet that we will be hitting the parks again within the next year.  Which brings me back to the novella – I wanted to get a little taste of Disney World before our next trip.

Cover Shot! Perfect Scoundrels by Ally Carter

Cover Shot! is a regular feature here at the Café. I love discovering new covers, and when I find them, I like to share. More than anything else, I am consumed with the mystery that each new discovery represents. There is an allure to a beautiful cover. Will the story contained under the pages live up to promise of the gorgeous cover art?

I am a book behind in Ally Carter’s Heist Society, but I have plenty of time to get caught up.  Perfect Scoundrels doesn’t hit stores until 2013!  I love how sassy these covers are, and love the reflection in the model’s shades.  I can hardly wait to see the real thing!

Katarina Bishop and W.W. Hale the fifth were born to lead completely different lives: Kat comes from a long, proud line of loveable criminal masterminds, while Hale is the scion of one of the most seemingly perfect dynasties in the world. If their families have one thing in common, it’s that they both know how to stay under the radar while getting—or stealing—whatever they want.

No matter the risk, the Bishops can always be counted on, but in Hale’s family, all bets are off when money is on the line. When Hale unexpectedly inherits his grandmother’s billion dollar corporation, he quickly learns that there’s no place for Kat and their old heists in his new role. But Kat won’t let him go that easily, especially after she gets tipped off that his grandmother’s will might have been altered in an elaborate con to steal the company’s fortune. So instead of being the heir—this time, Hale might be the mark.

Forced to keep a level head as she and her crew fight for one of their own, Kat comes up with an ambitious and far-reaching plan that only the Bishop family would dare attempt. To pull it off, Kat is prepared to do the impossible, but first, she has to decide if she’s willing to save her boyfriend’s company if it means losing the boy.
