Cover Focus: The Blue Enchantress

The Blue Enchantress by M. L. Tyndall


Book blurb from goodreads.com : “Get swept away in a high-tide of romance and adventure from acclaimed author M. L. Tyndall. Attempting to forget about a painful past, Hope Westcott plunges into Charles Towne society trying to find love and acceptance. Captain Nathaniel Masonis determined to build his shipping business and doesn’t need a romantic entanglement—especially with a woman like Hope. When Hope’s adventure-seeking puts her freedom—and her life—in jeopardy, will Nathaniel turn his back or follow God’s voice and sacrifice everything to save her?”

Why I like this cover: I love the title, I love the cover. You would expect the girl to be wearing blue though, don’t you think? I’ll start with her. J Just look at that dress! It’s beautiful. Most of it is obviously the yellow material, as an overskirt and the bodice. But there’s a lot of lace! All down the front of the bodice, on the sleeves, and around the neck. I would guess there’s some at the bottom of the skirt as well. And then there’s the orange belt/girdle/whatever-you-call-it around her waist. And don’t you love those little yellow bows in the lace on the front? Did you notice her hair? Those gold blowing hairs…delightful. She’s a very pretty girl. The sky is an unusual color, kind of yellow-orange. And the boat…what a delightful one! Not even the water is blue – but yellow, to go with the rest. Finally, I do love the cursive font in the title. This is one of my favorite covers. I can’t wait to read the book someday!

Sounds very intriguing! And, yes, I also love the dress. Period dresses are so pretty!

I've actually read this book! Good story, a bit cliched, but my biggest complaint was that it was way too romantic. Badly overdone!

Payton, ahhh. Thanks for the heads up. :)
