    Krista -
    I thought so too... I am a total cover sucker.

    Its good to do some reading outside your main genre at times.. I think.

    I have not started reading it yet so cannot give and honest opinion on the author's writing style of book substance.. but soon. :)

    Thanks for stopping by!
