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

Published February 13th 2017 by ForeverPoetic
When Olivia Villalobos finds a bloodstained love letter she endeavors to deliver it before Chief Inspector Sedeño finds it in her possession.
A city along the southern coast of Puerto Rico emerges in the aftermath of the Spanish-American War. Olivia, daughter of a drunkard police investigator who never knew the truth behind her mother’s disappearance, finds a bloodstained love letter in the hidden compartment of her father’s coat. Convinced it belonged to the man recently found dead she sets out to deliver it to the Labyrinth of Love Letters. A mysterious place believed to be an urban legend where the transients of forbidden love leave missives for one another. She enlists the help of Isaac Quintero to find the Labyrinth and they soon realize their quest has opened the door into Old Sienna’s darkest secrets—the perils, madness and depth of tragic love
I was debating when I should post this cover crush because it would have been perfect for fall time. I recently acquired this book to review on NetGalley so I decided to go ahead and share it. I shall read and write a review for it as soon as I can. I am definitely looking forward to reading the story. As a lover of history, reading about a story that takes place in the aftermath of the Spanish-American War has me intrigued.
The cover has a haunting feel to it but I’m not sure how the cover will relate to the story but I look forward to finding out!

Interesting because my first thought when I saw the cover was that it was set in France, just something about the woman’s dress. Then the bird on the gravestone made me think of Edgar Allen Poe! Sounds like it’s nothing to do with either of those things but it’s certainly atmospheric…
