Paris Imperfect cover


I'm very pleased with my new cover just received - both striking and fun. But the book won't be available until December here and about three months later in the US.
See Severn House link on the side for more details.
It's a love story with slices of lemon -
Clio, twice-married and unlucky in love, has become a realist. What she craves above all is stability for her son, Alex. This means she should marry her lover, Philippe, a cultured Frenchman with a large and conventional family. However difficult it is to cope with his perfectionist ways, not to mention his terrifying mother, Clio must not rock the boat.
She's a tour guide and when she takes rugged Canadian Joe around the battlefields of France, her tidy life begins to unravel again.

Thank you all for your encouraging comments. I had originally suggested a tasteful Paris scene preferably without the Eiffel Tower as it's a bit of a cliché. But this is far better than my idea. Have decided I'd rather have the modern look than the over-refined one I had envisaged.
Sorry the book is rather expensive. It's cheaper in the US oddly enough.

The storyline does sound great, I'm looking forward to reading it.
