Abigail (handmaiden) | 390 comments Just a "heh" moment I felt like sharing...

I was doing a search and this book showed up in the results:
Tantalize (Tantalize, #1) by Cynthia Leitich Smith
I thought the cover looked really familiar, but knew I had never read that book. But I remembered the book the cover reminded me of:
The Homeplace by Gilbert Morris

I can't think it would be all that easy to find the same photo used for two such different books as YA paranormal and Christian fiction set in the Depression.

Amusing find.

I wonder what other odd twins there are in the book world?

Many, many. So many. One of my favorite book-cover-bloggers tags them as "one image many covers." Here are his posts with that tag:

It's just one reason I hate stock photos.

Abigail (handmaiden) | 390 comments Thanks for that link, Lobstergirl. I guess two books using the same picture isn't too bad compared to cases of eleven books with the same cover...

Look at #18 and #19.
And #72. That got separated from the other two.
