I've read this, the best thing about it was the cover, it was pretty meh. It's the first in a series but I haven't bothered with the rest.

Whenever I see a book with such a title on Amazon, I steer well clear. It may be good, but I am not going to find out.

Also if I had searched for Downton Abbey, am I going to be satisfied with and intrigued by that search result?

I don't know why these 'authors' choose those long rambling titles. Still, makes for giggles on Goodreads :)

Am I imagining it or have I seen this woman before? I feel like she's on another cover with some airplanes but I have no idea what it was called.

Is this the same model in a slightly different getup? Hard to tell with half her face covered but the eyes look SO similar.

And again:

I don't think the eyeliner is photoshopped after all. Unless the photographer photoshopped it in and only made that version available for the stock images (which I think is really unlikely), there's no way it got photoshopped twice exactly the same.
