Thanks, Mo! I'm so glad you love it. And thanks for the congrats. I really like the quote--Luck is where preparation and opportunity meet.

Thanks again, Lynne

Lynne, What a moving cover ... very beautiful, and poignant. This cover is actually thought-provoking, begging the question of Summer, and grief, maybe loneliness? Very nice.

Lynne, I am so happy for you and I can't wait to read it. That's the kind of cover that calls to me from the bookstore shelf...I would have to pick up this book, even if I didn't already know how wonderful it is sure to be!

Joanne,
I'm so glad you find the cover intriguing. Summer is a metaphor with many meanings in this story.

Kristen,
I love hearing that you think the cover will pop off the bookshelves.

Thank you both for sharing your comments. I'm really happy with the cover. Glad you like it too.

gorgeous, I love covers (like this one) that are so evocative that you just want to pick the book up and start reading immediately. Somehow the use of photography on the cover of a novel makes the story seem more 'real'...which I also find very attractive.

Congrats, it's a beauty!

Hi Suzanne,

Thanks so much. Gorgeous, evocative, makes you want to read--my goodness, I couldn't ask for anything more! Thank you for sharing your feedback.
