Nothing ever happens in Dawson, Colorado.
Until high school senior Cassidy Roekiem’s mom checks into a “wellness center,” but nothing is wrong with her.
Then people start seeing lights in the sky and missing chunks of time, but the town insists nothing is going on.
And now Hayden, the new boy at school who keeps to himself and is more than a little mysterious, starts to notice her like it’s nothing out of the ordinary.
Suddenly, “nothing” is starting to feel a whole lot like something. And everything leads back to Hayden. The boy she’s starting to fall for. The boy with too many dark secrets for his kind heart. The boy she’s pretty sure isn’t human…
Cover Love (Why you love the cover)
I thanked my lucky stars when I first saw the glossy cover for UNDER THE MILKY WAY! Illustrated covers really get my heart racing. Mine was designed by Entangled Publishing’s Elizabeth Turner Stokes, and in my humble opinion, perfect for this paranormal story.
The first thing that struck me about the cover was the connect-the-dots title. Or rather, connect the stars! And that UFO buzzing through the deep, dark galaxy makes me wonder, “Who’s in there? Where are they going? Are they friendly?”
Check out Cassidy and Hayden under Milky Way, with only each other for support. Can you feel the love between these two? They’re oblivious to that flying saucer. Between you and me, I’m envious of their rosy cheeks and thick eyelashes. I adore the way Cassidy’s star-studded long locks sweep up into the galaxy, stretching into infinity and beyond.
Thanks so much for sharing the cover love with me today! Happy reading!
