Clara Benson A good cover can definitely make all the difference. Actually I liked your old one (ones? Can't remember how many there were), but these ones are definitely spot-on genre-wise.

Clara, thank you so much for your comments and for taking the time to get in touch. I'm lucky to have found a talented artist who does the cover illustrations for me. The Riviera Affair is also my favourite to date, although I say that about every new one!

Clara Benson I tried to post this in questions but it said I had to put a question mark (no idea how to find my way around Goodreads). I just wanted to say I think your covers are fantastic, especially the latest Riviera one!
