New Book: Hold Me Like a Breath: Once Upon a Crime Family by Tiffany Schmidt

Hold Me Like a Breath: Once Upon a Crime Family by Tiffany Schmidt is slated with a May 19, 2015 release date but it is already available in both print and digital editions for immediate shipping or downloads.

I haven't read this one yet but it intrigues me since it is a rare novel-length retelling of Princess and the Pea. There is also organized crime and illegal organ harvesting, so if dark mob plots are your catnip, this may be a double whammy for you. I don't find mob stories very fascinating--they are too depressing to me, but this is an interesting twist.

This is also the first in a series--it will be interesting to see where it goes and if more fairy tales are included in future books.

Book description:

In Penelope Landlow's world, almost anything can be bought or sold. She's the daughter of one of the three crime families controlling the black market for organ transplants. Because of an autoimmune disorder that causes her to bruise easily, Penny is considered too "delicate" to handle the family business, or even to step foot outside their estate.

All Penelope has ever wanted is independence--until she's suddenly thrust into the dangerous world all alone, forced to stay one step ahead of her family's enemies. As she struggles to survive the power plays of rival crime families, she learns dreams come with casualties, betrayal hurts worse than bruises, and there's nothing she won't risk for the people she loves.

Perfect for fans of Holly Black and Kimberly Derting, this first book in the stunning new Once Upon a Crime Family series from acclaimed author Tiffany Schmidt will leave readers breathless.
