It’s always so exciting to get to share a new cover with you!! And I recently received the art for A Song Unheard, so here we go!

First, a bit of background. Where book 1 in the series features a library and books [insert blissful sigh here], my hero and heroine in A Song Unheard are both violinists, so obviously we needed a violin on the cover. That was non-negotiable. 😉 We also needed:

  • A girl in her 20s with light brown hair that slips from its chignon when she plays (I gave them Emily Blunt as my inspiration)
  • 1914 styling
  • A midday room, since all the playing happens in a hotel’s function room, not on a stage
  • A bit of mystery 😉

As always, Bethany House did a great job finding a model that fit my description and finding a unique way to put a violin in her hands! Are you ready?

I love the soft, warm colors of this cover, and the art deco accents–similar to but different than the ones used on A Name Unknown. And you can just tell from the expression on her face that it’s not the music stand she’s set on watching, can’t you? Yes, this is a woman with an ulterior motive for sure!

Now for the blurb:

Willa Forsythe is both a violin prodigy and top-notch thief, which makes
her the perfect choice for a crucial task at the outset of World War
I–to steal a cypher from a famous violinist currently in Wales.

De Wilde has enjoyed the life of fame he’s won–until now, when being
recognized nearly gets him killed. Everyone wants the key to his
father’s work as a cryptologist. And Lukas fears that his mother and
sister, who have vanished in the wake of the German invasion of Belgium,
will pay the price. The only light he finds is meeting the intriguing
Willa Forsythe.

But danger presses in from every side, and Willa
knows what Lukas doesn’t–that she must betray him and find that cypher,
or her own family will pay the price as surely as his has.

Now, for fun, side by side with the first book…

So what do you think? Favorite part of the new cover? How do you think it works with/compares to the first one?
