I am not a cover designer but I can agree that cover layouts play an important role in the overall presentation of books and I must admit, often times I first judge a book by its cover.

In Nicci’s French’s thrilling fifth book, London psychotherapist Frieda Klein herself becomes the prime suspect in a murder
A bloated corpse turns up in the Thames, throat slashed, and the only clue is a hospital wristband reading Dr. F. Klein. Frieda is taken to see the body and realizes with horror that it is Sandy, her ex-boyfriend. She’s certain that the killer is Dean Reeve—the man who has never stopped haunting her. But the police think he has been dead for years, and Frieda is their number one suspect. With few options, Frieda goes on the run to save herself and try to uncover the truth.
Praise for the Frieda Klein Mystery series:
“Fierce, fascinating, and full of insight, Frieda Klein is irresistible.” —Val McDermid, bestselling author of Splinter the Silence
“Sophisticated, gripping, addictive. Crime novels that stand head and shoulders above the competition.” —Sophie Hannah, bestselling author of Woman with a Secret
“Complex psychological suspense at its best.” —Booklist (starred review)
I can so relate to the title and the picture of the woman taking a stroll with I’m sure is her in deep thought about Friday to come…
What dangers could she face? Could Frieda be faced with a crime she did not commit?
Great cover and atmospheric. I’ve added this to my reading pile. Looking forward to it.

I, too, think covers matter. I agonize for days when designing one. On occasion, I have actually changed the cover design of an existing book I’ve published, and it has made a difference in sales. You are soooooo on the money! 🙂
