Cover Focus: A Flight of Fancy


A Flight of Fancy by Laurie Alice Eakes



Book blurb from goodreads.com : Cassandra Bainbridge has twice set aside her scholarly pursuits--once for the London Season and once for her wedding preparations. Love seems a wonderful alternative to study, until disaster strikes. When an accident brings an end to her betrothal, she heads for the country to recover from both her injuries and her broken heart. There she pursues her love for ballooning and envisions a future for herself as a daring aeronaut. But when her former fiancé slips back into her life, what course will she choose?
Filled with the mystique of London society and the charming beauty of the English countryside, A Flight of Fancy explores what it means to find the true source of happiness and love amid the distractions of life. Readers will love the next installment in this rousing Regency series from accomplished author Laurie Alice Eakes.

Why I like this cover: If you ask me (which I know, you didn’t), it looks exactly like a flight of fancy to me. Cassandra’s fanciful expression and dark curls go perfectly with it all. And that dress is so pretty! The pink frills and rosette are adorable (and definitely flighty), and the dark pink skirt section that appears to mostly just cover the back is perfect. And the gloves! What I wouldn’t give for a pair of gloves just like that… Even the way she’s holding her arm contributes distinctly to the overall effect! And of course, the balloons in the background are perfect for the flight theme. I love those balloons, by the way…especially the blue and gold one. The fancy capital F’s are beautiful – and not the same, but they go together! I don’t quite like the aqua blue that is behind Laurie Alice Eakes’ name…seems to me a pink or gold would have been better. Other than that, I love it! Looks like a fun and even funny book. :)
