The Bluebeard fairy tale retold. . . .

When seventeen-year-old Sophia Petheram’s beloved father dies, she receives an unexpected letter. An invitation—on fine ivory paper, in bold black handwriting—from the mysterious Monsieur Bernard de Cressac, her godfather. With no money and fewer options, Sophie accepts, leaving her humble childhood home for the astonishingly lavish Wyndriven Abbey, in the heart of Mississippi.

Sophie has always longed for a comfortable life, and she finds herself both attracted to and shocked by the charm and easy manners of her overgenerous guardian. But as she begins to piece together the mystery of his past, it’s as if, thread by thread, a silken net is tightening around her. And as she gathers stories and catches whispers of his former wives—all with hair as red as her own—in the forgotten corners of the abbey, Sophie knows she’s trapped in the passion and danger of de Cressac’s intoxicating world.

Glowing strands of romance, mystery, and suspense are woven into this breathtaking debut—a thrilling retelling of the “Bluebeard” fairy tale.


Why I love: 

I know this has been out for a little bit, but I love many things about this cover. Not only is the model gorgeous, but also I love the antique look of the cover, how it's faded. The swirls are a nice touch and my eye even keeps drifting over to the building in the corner. 

I say it's a win!

What cover are you loving this week?

  1. Oh yes, I like the antique look too and the model's profile, hair and top of her dress are very pretty. :)

  2. This cover is gorgeous! I love the faded antique quality it has and I am always attracted to those flowery designs that go on top of the image. We can only hope that the book will be as atmospheric. :)

  3. I don't even think I've heard of this or seen it. It is a pretty cover though, especially the dark green dress against the rest of those colors.
