Cover Candy: Special Edition

Monday, January 28, 2013

I realize that there is only one cover to share as I am writing this up, but I cannot resist! Had to post this delightful cover art from new author, Melissa Tagg. Coming late this year, her debut novel Made to Last finally has a cover, and it sounds as delightful as it looks.

Check it out - and a new cover for Liz Tolsma's Snow on the Tulips. Honestly, I think I prefer the former design in this case.

Synopsis: In the twilight of the Nazi occupation of The Netherlands, the Germans have taken everything Cornelia had to give, even what was most precious to her. Now Gerrit Laninga-a man who puts God and country above all else-arrives at her house, needing help. She is terrified for herself and terrified for her family, but most of all, terrified of the pain she might feel again if she allows herself to love Gerrit. Her hope is to be free from her paralyzing fear.

Gerrit is a known and hunted Dutch Resistance member. When he comes to Cornelia's home for shelter, he's drawn to her strength and kindness. When he asks her to contact the local Resistance on his behalf, she refuses. Gerrit is determined to find a way to continue his underground work without putting Cornelia or her family in harm's way.

Made to Last is about a homebuilding TV show host out to save her career while juggling a fake husband, former fiancĂ© and nosy reporter...all under the roof of the one house she can't bring herself to finish building.

    1. Yes, they sure do, Kellie. :)

  2. Okay... I just might have to read both of those :P Sierra

    1. I know, right!? Both are interesting though I always tend more towards a lighter read which Melissa's sounds full of. :)

      Glad they sound good, Sierra!

    1. It's an intriguing concept for sure, Juju - did you see the original design? I think I prefer it over this re-vision.

  4. The first cover is really intriging!
