#CoverCrush: The Whaler

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.

The ocean. Water, waves and a beach. Perhaps this cover speaks to me because I am at a lake this week for a family reunion. Oh, a lake isn't the same as the ocean, but here in Idaho, it's as close as I can get.

Who is this woman? The wind whips at her hair and the waves are rugged. Is that ship leaving port or coming home? Who does she wait for? What is her story?

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