Review #229: Double Crossed- Ally Carter

Title: Double Crossed
Author: Ally Carter
Pages: 60
Format: ebook
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Summary: Macey McHenry—Glamorous society girl or spy-in-training?

W.W. Hale V—Heir to an American dynasty or master thief?

There are two sides to every coin. Whether these two can work together is a tossup.

Born into privilege, Macey and Hale are experts at mingling with the upper class. But even if they’ve never raised an eyebrow at the glitz, neither teenager has ever felt at home with the glamour.

When Macey and Hale meet at a society gala, the party takes a dangerous turn. Suddenly they’re at the center of a hostage situation, and it’s up to them to stop the thugs from becoming hostile. Will Macey’s spy skills and Hale’s con-man ways be enough to outsmart a ruthless gang? Or will they have to seek out the ultimate inside girl to help?

The worlds of Heist Society and the Gallagher Girls collide in Ally Carter’s fast-paced, high-stakes and tantalizing new story. Get a behind the scenes glimpse as Ally delivers an irresistible thriller that is full of her signature style and savvy twists.
Review: I received this book free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
When I saw this short story on Netgalley I knew I needed it because I love The Heist Society novels. I haven't read The Gallagher Girls novels but this makes me want to get them ASAP! This was a very interesting mingling of characters who at first you may believe may become an item but the opposite happens. It's nice to see some of the characters I know already and getting a bit more of their lives now. I can't wait to continue on with this series. I also I hope there are more of these short stories.
