#CoverCrush: Guarded

I will freely admit that I judge books by their covers. The cover is usually what first captures my attention when browsing Goodreads or Netgalley. Actually, in all honesty, it isn't just usually, it's pretty much all the time. The cover determines if I look at the synopsis and reviews.

This vivid scarlet cover caught my eye immediately. A pretty dress, a young woman holding a stack of letters. Who are they from? How do they fit with the title, which suggests restraint or suspicion? So many questions that are only answered by reading the book.

What about you? Any book covers capture your attention this week?
