In today’s edition of Cover Love, pick your favorite between two versions of exciting new releases, rereleased classics and bestsellers that are hitting new markets.
Sometimes a book cover gets an update because it’s being released as a paperback or audio book. Sometimes a cover is reimagined for release in a different country where trends are different and sometimes a cover gets an update simply because it’s been a while and hey—we all need a little freshening up from time to time.
When we love a book, we may prefer only to see it with the cover it wore when we fell in love, but often, as with the choices below, a great cover can be made even greater the second (or third) time around. The choice is yours so tell us what you think—just this once, go ahead and judge a book by its cover.
The Dutch Wife by Ellen Keith
Two very different covers are available for this book about three people separated by war and time, who find a link that binds them to a horror but also to redemption.

The Winter Guest by Pam Jenoff
