Waiting on Wednesday: Perfect Scoundrels

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

For this week I've chosen the new installment in a Middle Grade-ish series I really like.

Title: Perfect Scoundrels
Series: Heist Society, #3
Author: Ally Carter
Publication: February 7th 2013
Publisher: Orchard
Paperback, 352 pages

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.

I adored the first two books in this seried and I really need Kat and Hale to finally do something about their feelings for each other. I'm sure the focus won't be on the romance at all, but hopefully we'll still get a few crumbs thrown our way. 

What are you excited about? Leave me a link and I'll be there.
