It’s easy to add book covers and linked titles while on the desktop version. Use “add book/author” that’s on top of the comment box. They probably can’t be added using the mobile version or app.

I just recently finished [bookcover:A Beauty So Rare|18008071]. A very good read from Tamera Alexander. Sooo close to a 5 star read for me!

(I wonder why the book cover isn’t showing in your post.) I gave that book five stars, and I’m rather stingy with stars.

I am stingy with five star ratings as well. A Beauty So Rare was a five star read for me too. :-)

message 28: by Hannah (new)

Hannah (bookwormhannah) | 867 comments I noticed it because it's happened to me. Doesn't happen often, but it's crazy when it does!


message 29: by Hannah (new)

Hannah (bookwormhannah) | 867 comments And I also gave A Beauty So Rare (Belmont Mansion, #2) by Tamera Alexander five stars! I didn't expect to like it because of the cover looking like it would be really romancey, but then ended up loving it.

Hannah, funny story on the cover...I had the opportunity to meet Tamera Alexander a few years ago and one of the things we talked about was the cover for A Beauty So Rare. Tamera didn't design the cover and indicated the look of the cover model/dress didn't fit exactly with what she had in mind. The publisher wouldn't change the cover so Tamera changed some of the book she had already "finished" so her writing would match the cover!

That makes me want to know what she changed. But then, I don’t remember much about the book because it’s been three years since I read it. I can’t believe it’s been that long. I would have said a year.

I love the book’s cover.

Hannah (bookwormhannah) | 867 comments There was a scene where the heroine wore a pink outfit, so I'm guessing that was what got added.

Carolyn | 218 comments Rick, I'm not into swearing and bloody gory details with mystery/suspense. However, I do enjoy this series; it's unique being amish, Sworn to Silence. There is a reason she keeps adding to this series; readers like her books; full of suspense. You can even try the first book at a library, for the free cost or on a kindle; not as expensive. As always check reviewers notes on books
