~ Cover Reveal ~

Case of the Beleaguered BrideDebra E. Marvin has another book releasing in the Nosy Parkers Mystery series in July 2018, and this is the cover! I don’t know about you, but I love the simplicity of the silhouettes on these covers coupled with the eye-catching colours. And the green in this case is a little hint as to where this mystery takes place… It’s not up for pre-order yet, but you can stay up-to-date with release information by following Debra on Facebook or signing up for her newsletter via her website.



Shark BaitCara Putman has revealed the cover of her upcoming Mysteries of Martha’s Vineyward release. What a cover! I don’t have release details for this yet, but you can stay up-to-date by following Cara’s Facebook page.





A Sparkle of SilverSparkle of SilverLiz Johnson has announced a change of cover to her upcoming October release, A Sparkle of Silver. You may remember seeing the cover on the right a few weeks ago. Given that the story is a contemporary romance in which a woman digs into her family’s past at a seaside estate to uncover secrets that could save her future, which do you think is the better cover? As lovely as the one on the right is, I do think the one on the left reflects the story better, don’t you?

Rel at Relz Reviewz has another wonderful cover reveal post for us—Bethany House’s late 2018 releases. There are some beauties in there! Click on the graphic to go to the post.
