To answer your question, the covers are designed by my publisher's art department (Penguin/Berkley Prime Crime) and they do a beautiful job. Ultimately the publisher has the final say, but I have definitely had input. My editors have always asked for suggestions for the cover, based on the happenings in the story. All the covers have featured the By the Spoonful Soup Shop in some fashion, with the exception of Ladle to the Grave, which shows a wedding scene. That's the book in which Sophie is planning her wedding. The cover of A Clue in the Stew shows the B&B in the distance outside the window, and the stack of books on the table is a reference to the famous mystery writer's book signing at the soup shop, plus two of the covers show the yellow gingham curtains in the front window of the restaurant -- a really nice touch.
Hope this answers your question, Sherrie ~ have fun in Snowflake!

Berkley Prime Crime chose the first one - A Spoonful of Murder. The next two titles, A Broth of Betrayal and A Roux of Revenge, were mine. I just tried to find a word that hinted at crime with a soup reference. My publisher liked Ladle to the Grave, even though I wanted to call that book, A Corpse in the Cauldron. And for this most recent title, A Clue in the Stew (which I really like), my choice originally was Parsley Sage Rosemary and Crime, which is also a great title, but a bit long, so I can see why they didn't want to use that one.
I hope you get to try some of the recipes in the series, and don't miss The Cozy Cookbook either for some of my recipes and recipes from lots of culinary cozy authors. My GR giveaway just ended a few days ago, but there are more giveaways on my blog tour. You can check out events at my FB page, and I'll announce the stops every day. This tour goes on till April 27th. To answer your other question -- yes, I do have bookmarks. Let me know if you'd like some, I'm happy to send them to you. You can send me your address at conniearchermysteries@gmail.com.
Happy reading!
~ Connie
