Cover Crush ~ Bees in the Butterfly Garden ~ 10/13/12

Cover Crush is a new meme over at On The Shelf where beautiful and eye-catching covers are spotlighted! Any cover can be showcased whether it be old or new, read or still sitting in your TBR stack.

My Cover Crush this week is:

Bees in the Butterfly Garden
Raised in an exclusive boarding school among Fifth Avenue's finest, Meg Davenport has all she's ever needed . . . but none of the things she's wanted most, like family, or dreams of a future that includes anything other than finding a suitable match. So when her distant father dies, she seizes the chance to throw etiquette aside and do as she pleases. Especially when she learns that John Davenport wasn't the wealthy businessman she thought, but one of the Gilded Age's most talented thieves.
Poised to lead those loyal to Meg's father, Ian Maguire knows the last thing his mentor would have wanted is for his beloved daughter to follow in his footsteps. Yet Meg is determined, and her connections to one of New York's wealthiest families could help Ian pull off his biggest heist yet. But are they both in over their heads? And in trying to gain everything, will they end up losing it all?

What I love about it:

I think this is one of the most beautiful covers I've seen in a long time.  The gold background nicely sets off the colors of the items in the foreground.  Meg's dark, silky hair is absolutely gorgeous and the color of the roses against the white of her gloves is so pretty.  The butterflies floating over the cover remind me of my daughters who are obsessed with butterflies and they bring a smile to my face.
