New Spring Cover for Wishful Thinking - What Do You Think?

Don't you love spring?  The flowers re-emerging in every nook and cranny of the garden after their long sleep; the trees bedecked with blossoms; down by the river the ducks, geese and other waterfowl proudly parade their cute little bundles of fluff and feathers while in the fields the lambs trail close behind their mothers, trying to keep up. 

It all makes me feel so alive.

I've spring-cleaned the house, revamped my wardrobe, shampooed the cat (not really) and am still itching to do more, so I thought, why not give some of my book covers a facelift too?  

Don't get me wrong, I'm not throwing away their old garments—they're far too dear to me for that—just letting them try on something new for size.  So here's the first one (made by

The Blurb:
A high-speed blow-out in the fast lane of a busy motorway! Miraculously, Jess and her young son escape almost-certain death. 

Then, like another miracle, Jess encounters Christian Goodchild, famous pop star turned Hollywood A-lister and a man most women only ever meet in their dreams. Both are touched by the enchantment of the moment - leaving them longing for more. 

But Christian is enmeshed in a relationship so damaging that Jess doubts their love can survive in the glamorous but complex world of celebrity. Could it all turn out to be just wishful thinking?

Same story, just a brand new look.  And just in case you need reminding, here's what the old one looked like.

I'd love to know what you think of its new spring outfit.
