Series: The Psychic Detectives Series #2
Published by Harper Impulse on 31 October 2013
Today I’m delighted to share the cover of Something Wicked by Angela Campbell. This is my first time operating with Xpresso Tours which is exciting in itself. I wanted to do this cover reveal as it had so many of my favourite things – a mystery, romantic suspense and even a paranormal aspect.
This is the second novel in The Psychic Detectives series but apparently it can be read as a standalone.
I like the cover for three main reasons:
1. we have a raven in the top right and as all Edgar Allan Poe fans would agree, ravens are cool. I’m guessing the inclusion is because the book is being released on Halloween
2. the male model is wearing normal clothes. I shouldn’t have to comment on something as simple as this but often whenever you see the phrase ‘romantic suspense’, we get beefcake. He’s also sporting stubble and he looks a bit world-weary, both of which would be appropriate for a hard-working cop (I’m assuming the model is Dylan the homicide detective)
3. the textured font reflects the decaying headstones and the colour adds a bit of oomph to the cover. It is also easy to read as is Campbell’s name which = win.
What do you think?
