It’s time for another look at my favorite cover discoveries released in March, 2015. First up is an adorable Tween cover (Grades 5-8) for Flunked by Jen Calonita. It has an irresistible theme about a reform school with former fairy tale villains as instructors. Think about Cinderella’s stepmother as an example and smile at the possibilities. I was charmed the minute I saw this cover and I’m tempted to buy it and read about those instructors. The only negative is the missing head of the heroine but my imagination can create an image from the author’s description. Still, I would love to have seen the face of the heroine.

The next cover, A Hope Remembered by Stacie Henrie, has a simple design and a delicate beauty that instantly captures your attention. This thoughtful heroine intrigues and I want to know who she is and what is happening in her life. The partial view of the hat and beautiful flower at the top corner adds to the ambiance and I love the braided red hair. This is a charming cover.

I love western romances, mysteries, and second chance love stories and the next cover graces a story containing all three of my favorite topics. The story inside, The Outlaw Takes A Bride by Susan Page Davis, has an unsolved murder, an assumed identity, an escaped convict, and a mail-order bride. The cover is simple and yet it sends a powerful image of someone looking for love and a second chance but there is a great distance between the desire and reaching the goal. This Inspirational title is on my list for a future read.

I saw the front cover of, The Witch of Painted Sorrows by M. J. Rose, on Pinterest and then discovered the back cover also featured a larger version of the Eiffel Tower image (one of my favorite things). I love, love, love this cover and entered it in the Two Image category for next year’s contest. One word description….GORGEOUS!
