July was another busy month on the blog with so many exciting releases to be devoured. This month my shortlist for cover of the month are all books that I have read this month or ones that are sitting on my bedside table, and trust me it was hard to pick just one special cover from among this lovely lot of books.
It is the cover of THE SECRET OF SUMMERHAYES by Merryn Allingham that completely captured my imagination this month and made it the winner for July 2017. Rich colours and the artistry alone pulls you into the story before you even open the page. The glimpse of the stunning stately home in the background surrounded by trees and gardens, just begs you to find out the mystery that is hidden inside. And I love the red dress and the font used for the title as it really makes the cover pop. Here is all you need to know about this gorgeous book:

ABOUT THE BOOK
A war-torn summer
A house fallen into ruin
A family broken apart by scandal…
Summer 1944: Bombed out by the blitz, Bethany Merston takes up a post as companion to elderly Alice Summer, last remaining inhabitant of the dilapidated and crumbling Summerhayes estate. Now a shadow of its former glory; most of the rooms have been shut up, the garden is overgrown and the whole place feels as unwelcoming as the family themselves.
Struggling with the realities of war, Alice is plagued by anonymous letters and haunting visions of her old household. At first, Beth tries to convince her it’s all in her mind but soon starts to unravel the mysteries surrounding the aristocratic family’s past.
An evocative and captivating tale, The Secret of Summerhayes tells of dark secrets, almost-forgotten scandals and a household teetering on the edge of ruin.
