This is a fun meme for the weekends, count Friday and Monday as part of your weekend and have even more fun!
“This is a brand new meme to display all those beautiful, funny, crazy and even those that make you think book covers you come across each week. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I love looking at different book covers. You may not be able to judge a book by its cover, but they are sure fun to look at.
The Blog Hop is hosted by Yvonne, over at ‘Socrates’ Book Review Blog‘ and the rules for taking part are pretty simple:
1. Cross to ‘Socrates’ Book Review Blog’. Take the button at the top of her post and post it on your blog.

3. Sign up with Mr. Linky at the bottom of the page. Please use the url that links directly to your cover art post.
4. Visit other blogs on the list to see what covers they are featuring this week.

The cover is nothing spectacular in itself, but to me it holds an air of peace and serenity, with just a hint of desolation and neglect as if the house has lain unloved and forgotten about for some time. I really want to open the door and take a peek inside.

But this is a harsh and lonely place when you’re no longer here on holiday. There is French bureaucracy to contend with, not to mention the mountain weather, and the reserve of her neighbours, including the intriguing Patrick Castagnol.
And that’s before the arrival of Catherine’s sister, Bryony …
