A nice review
I was browsing Instagram the other day and came across this lovely review from the New York Public Library.
I was especially pleased, because this book has the least-liked cover of all my books, and tells you nothing about the story. It also has the lowest sales of all my books, (presumably because of that cover) but it got some excellent reviews and was listed on Library Journal’s “Best books of the year” in the USA. (See here)
Plus I had fun writing it. It’s my “chick in pants” romance, set partly in Egypt, with a feisty heroine and a gorgeous hero who discovers love can strike in the most unexpected situations. You can read an excerpt here.
So thank you, New York Public Library, and thank you to NY Literary for posting it on Instagram.
Do you visit Instagram? If so, I’d love it if you followed me. Just go to my page — click here — and click on “follow”. That’s all. Dead easy.
I knew the minute I read that first sentence which book you had to be talking about. While I admit that the cover will often draw me to a book if it’s a first time author for me, it’s just as often the paper. Does that seem silly? I think it was Relic by Preston and Child. I was sort of drawn by the cover but the paper. Oh, the paper! So I’m glad they’re changing the cover, but I’m even happier about the review because the book rocked! :)
Thank you, Theo — but I don’t think they’re changing the cover. I wish they would. I’m sure it would get a lot more readers if it had the kind of cover that attracts people.
Well, I love roses and still think it’s a beautiful cover for those alone, but I do understand.
I loved that book so much. I thought it one of your best and I’ve read a lot of them!
