Cover Talk: The Story of Us by Deb Caletti

I am a huge Deb Caletti fan (which is very ironic seeing as I never could get into any of her books and avoided them until her editor convinced me otherwise), and I love how every Spring she rolls out a nice and shiny new book for us. And I love that her last two books have had bodies of water on the cover...and her next book, The Story of Us, is keeping with that trend! Check out that gorgeous cover!



The beach! Love it! The way you can see the waves coming in, the sun, and the sheerness of the girl's dress...I just think it's so pretty.

And I know you're dying to know what it's all about...
"Cricket's on a self-imposed break from her longtime boyfriend, trying to figure out whether she's in it for the right reasons. But this is a bad week to try to figure it all out. After ditching two previous husbands-to-be at the airport, Cricket's mother Daisy is finally getting married, to Dan Jax. Cricket loves Dan, but as the families and friends start to arrive for Wedding Week at the beautiful guest house on Bishop Rock, run by old hippies Ted and Rebecca Rose and their sweet, sexy son Ash, things start getting complicated.

There’s no airport on Bishop Rock, as far as anyone knows, but Cricket fears that Dan is in danger of becoming ditched husband-to-be number three, and Cricket’s own desires have chosen now to have a mind of their own. Because even though her boyfriend looms large in her mind, Ash is right in front of her..."
Ah, I don't think words can convey my excitement right now! I am so pumped for this one! What do you think of the cover? What's your favorite Deb Caletti book (cover)?

I read, "If I Stay" by Deb Caletti and was so impressed. This one looks exciting and the cover is breathtaking.

It's a very pretty cover. And the story sounds a little Runaway Bride but cooler :)

I don't know if I'll read it thought, I have never read Caletti's books. Though I think I got Wild Roses somewhere in my house =)

*Sigh* I love this one-- there's something so swoony about it. I was in love with her Stay cover too-- I've just got a thing with Deb Caletti and her water-themed covers!!

She is one of those authors I feel you can always depend on. Some of her books (The Nature of Jade and Stay) are in my top 10. I'm so excited about this, and I love the cover. I also LOVE where she sets her books. I really want to go there some day.

I've never actually read any of her books yet, but the covers make me want to pick them up.

I love her books. Her covers are always fresh. I particularly love this one. The sun gives it a beautiful touch.
