I actually kind of like this one although I think it could use some work. The face seems to me as with the last one a bit too obviously superimposed, but I really like the seascape background.I have no idea what the genre might be though. Romance? Suspense? Paranormal. Still I like that seascape well enough I might take a look at the blurb to find out.
(Eric-) The artwork is very nice, but it doesn't tell me a thing about the book. A girl at the beach is all I get. I would guess that it's a YA but beyond that.... not a clue.
I like the image in the background, the image of the girl in front not so much. I also think the author's name gets a little lost. I'd make it larger and give it more contrast. I'm guessing this is the first book in a series but it might work better to simply state: "Book 1 in the Marina's Tales series" rather than use the logo which is hard to make out unless you enlarge the cover.For genre I'd say YA, romance or fantasy.
Overall, I like the cover, but then I've always been attracted to the water. :-)The genre? As others have said, not really sure. Maybe romance. And I take it that "1" means the first in the series. With my own ebook, I spelled out the series name and stuck "#1" at the end of it. I also decided not to do anything overly funky with the font for that; I think the author should do away with the funky wave thing around the 1 and just spell it out.
