Kate Concealed

About the book: It’s time to stop living in the past. 

After discovering her birth mom was on the run from the mafia, Kate decides to focus on her future. Until she uncovers a secret that her adoptive parents have been keeping. Anxious to discover the truth, she unlocks doors that not only expose the heinous secrets of her adoptive family, but also those of her birth family. 

As her mind turns to revenge, she is reunited with the boy who saved her from the mafia, placing him, her friends, and family in extreme jeopardy. 

If she can’t unravel the secrets of her past, she might not have a future. 

Suspenseful, with the right amount of romance, and awash with action and adventure, Kate Concealed will send teens and adults alike on a thrill ride that will be hard to forget.

My review: I love this series! I love the way that Cindy Hogan writes her characters. You almost feel as though you are Kate and scheming to get your parents to let you go to Italy with only your two best friends as chaperones. That's kind of the one thing for me with this book, whose parents are really going to let them go clear around the world all by themselves, especially after almost getting themselves killed by the mafia. I know there's no way I'd let our daughter.

I loved that I almost felt as though I was in Italy with Kate and Ellie. The streets and canals of Venice seemed to be as real as though I had been there (It's on my list!) and I could almost taste the yummy food they must have been able to eat while they were there.

One of the best things about this book is that action and adventure. Kate gets to travel all around the world almost on her own. But there is danger around every corner for her. The mafia is still after her. And a lot of the people that she had met in Jersey have been sent to Italy, so there are tons of people after her. She has to use all of her skills to keep herself and Ellie safe. And in the end...well you'll have to read that yourself.

I will say that the end of this one is driving me nuts. It's a complete cliff hanger and I'm really hoping that Cindy Hogan has a new one coming out really soon, because otherwise she's going to be in big trouble!

This is a cute, clean adventure book that you won't want to put down and you won't have a problem with your teen reading and enjoying!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
