BOOK SPOTLIGHT: The Fairytale Keeper by Andrea Cefalo + CONTEST!

Hi guys and gals!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

So, you made it!  You survived....Valentine's Day that is.  Hopefully you had a wonderful time no matter your plans were or even weren't.  Though the day of love may be over, it doesn't mean the MONTH is and I plan to continue bringing you book after book to consider for your next great reading affair.  Sound good?  Great!  Let's jump right in then, shall we?

Today, we're kicking off a stroll through the blogosphere, courtesy of  Historical Fiction Virtual Blog Tours, for the first book in a new Young Adult series that's really going to grab your attention.  Don't believe me?  Well, I'm speaking from experience and had I the time to work it in for a review, I would have happily read it myself but alas, ye olde schedule is full so I have to leave the reading to all of you.  That's right.  I'm expecting one of you to report back to me with all the goodness that this read was because from what I saw, it promises much.  Ready to go ladies and gents?  Your wish is my command.  Today's spotlight shines on....

The Fairytale Keeper, Book 1:
Primrose Press

About the book...
Snow White was a pet name her mother had given her, but her mother’s dead now. Adelaide hates that name anyway. A rampant fever claimed Adelaide’s mother just like a thousand others in Cologne where the people die without Last Rites and the dead are dumped in a large pit outside of the city walls. Adelaide’s father is determined to obtain a funeral for his wife, but that requires bribing the parish priest, Father Soren. When Soren commits an unforgivable atrocity, he pushes Adelaide to her breaking point, but if she seeks justice against the cruel priest, she risks sacrificing everything: her father, her friends, her first love, and maybe even her life.

Really, I mean how can you NOT be curious?
A Snow White retelling?  Definitely a 'wish list' addition for me.

First off, I'm loving the cover. The combination of scenery and face shot forces you to take it all in versus focusing on only one aspect.  Then you have the little dig of "...not all fairytales end in happily ever after"...color me curious!  Now, why am I curious...

I'm curious to know just why she hates the name she was "nick'd" with.  I'm also interested to know why seeking justice is going to make her lose pretty much EVERYONE.  That's gotta be one BIG secret!  Can't help but wonder who it's been eating up inside hiding it too....and those my friends are just the thoughts that crossed m mind in reading the synopsis.  Imagine what would happen if I opened the cover!
