- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another...
I'm a fan of Michael Robotham's writing and have really enjoyed his Joseph O'Loughlin mysteries. Last year he introduced a new character - Cyrus Haven - a forensic psychologist. I enjoyed the first book and this second book, When She Was Bad, releases in July on both sides of the pond. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Okay, let's get started with the US cover. It employs one of my favorite cover images - a woman's blurred face. Nah, I'm kidding - I am overtired of woman's face, she looks scared images. The font is a good choice though. The UK cover matches the style of previous releases. I think it's clean and the author and the title are prominent. What's in the background is tantalizing and I had to take a closer look. Large old isolated. spooky looking house with a single light on in an attic room, birds (maybe ravens?) flying about, an ominous shadow. And I think that might be a dog in the upper right. All books with dogs in them are good, right? Easy choice for me this week - UK cover. What about you?
Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read When She Was Good?
