Sorry if this got posted twice. I am having internet issues. I loved this book, but I think I blew past it in the B&N store several times and never stopped to look. When you have read the book the cover makes perfect sense, but all I saw on the little thumbnail in the store was a stark red and black cover covered in fire. (Or what I though was fire at a quick glance.) I finished the book before I noticed the red in the front actually made figures. It is a mystery, but a amusing one and I don't think the cover shows that it is a fun book to read. I do like the fact that by looking at the cover we can see it is part of a series and even though I am usually strange about fonts on covers I like the fonts used here.
I do not think that this is a very strong cover.I do not know if it's the scan, but the dog and the witch edges look to be fuzzy while everything else has a sharp edge. The back ground is very busy to the point the much of the detail is being lost. I'm going to disagree with Becky and say that I am also not a fan of this type face, it is a bit hard to read. genre: I would guess supernatural mystery
Appreciate the feedback! I have re-designed the cover. Check Amazon, B&N or my website at www.barbraannino.com for the revised version. Becky, I'm so happy you enjoyed the story and I think you were right in that the cover didn't capture the fun factor. Barb

The new cover is much better.
