#CoverCrush: The 9:45 to Bletchley

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.

Stark black and white with red. It doesn't get much more classic than that. The font and the clothing style give it a definite vintage feel--likely some time during World War 2. The title gives that away as well, because Bletchley figured strongly during the war. Who is the woman? Why is she looking back at the soldier? What is her story?

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