And the Winner of Matrimony is . . .

Paula
from A Reader's Haven

Congratulations Paula. I'll be anxious to read your review of this book. Hope y'all will stop by a visit Paula and congratulate her.

It was fun to read everyone's comments about which cover they liked best. (read comments) I like the bathroom cover better. I think it's more intimate. Which suggests to me that people involved in this marriage knew each other and shared life, love, good times and bad. It will be interesting to read the book and see if that's even close to what's described. I didn't like the connotations I read into the shoe cover. The man's shoes - black, polished and with the ring on his side - suggests he may be more in control of the marriage or has a greater investment. I would bet he's older and authoritative. The "Mary Jane" girl's shoes make me think the wife may be younger, less committed to the marriage or stifled.

Like I say, it will be interesting to read the book and find out what's really going on. The covers have provided lots of questions which beg to be answered.

Be sure to enter for a free copy of Farworld: Water Keep. It's a great fantasy.

It is interesting how covers make people think... They tell you not to judge a book by its cover, but we do it anyways!

I prefer the cover on the hardback too, which is good I suppose since that's the one I have! I agree with your reasons why. The two toothbrushes does seem more intimate to me too.

I'll be having a draw for a copy of Matrimony (the paperback) starting on Sept. 15th. So anyone who wasn't lucky this time, make sure to stop by my blog in mid-Sept. for another chance. :)
