covercrush

One of the first thing that draws me as a reader to a book is the cover. As an author, I’m always curious about the design involved in a cover:  the colors, the fonts, the imagery, etc. The covers I share here are not a promotion for the book itself, simply an admiration of the cover or aspects of it.

Path into Darkness, by Lisa Alber

Lisfenora is known across the British Isles for its yearly matchmaking festival. But a local man’s murder and the grim discovery in his home have cast a somber mood over the town. Detective Sergeant Danny Ahern tries to make sense of the chaotic scene while struggling to set aside moral conflicts and grief for his comatose wife. Within days, he’s plunged into even darker terrain when the investigation leads him on a collision course with the Tate family: troubled Nathan, who conceals secrets within ghastly secrets, and beautiful Zoe, the daughter Nathan abandoned years ago.

In this dark, compelling mystery, one man is propelled toward a tragic downfall while the other struggles to walk the narrow path between life and death.

My impression:  This cover is so atmospheric! The worn path, rolling hills, and stone wall evoke a sense of Ireland, and the dark storm clouds and subdued color scheme lend the cover an ominous air.
