  50. Sonja Netkovska says:


  51. Kathy says:


  52. Renee Rousseau says:

    #1 grabbed me

  53. Tracy Sylvester says:

    Images one and two say Christmas to me. Three just kind of says winter is here and they are out for a stroll. My favorite is image one by far.

  54. Rita Wray says:

    I like #1, it is lovely.

  55. Paula says:

    Definitely 3. You can see their faces and it’s joyful. Two looks awkward. One looks one dimensional.

  56. Caroline H says:

    #2 it feels the most like Christmas

    # 3 would make me want to know more.

  58. Steph J says:

  59. Stella Potts says:


  60. Kim H in GA says:

    #1 ๐Ÿ™‚

  61. Glenda Fowlow says:

    #2 if your characters are sophisticated

    #3 if you want an open, joyful, simple feel. Love it even better if his coat was a darker colour like navy blue

  62. #1 is my favorite. I get a feeling of love just looking at the cover.

  63. Connie Saunders says:

    I would choose #1 first because the blue reminds me of the big blue bulbs that used to be on our Christmas tree and the touch of red used on her hat/scarf seals the deal ๐Ÿ™‚

  64. I like #1 with #3 as a second choice, lol.

  65. Cindy Regnier says:

    #3 would make me want to read this! Love how happy they look

    Number 3 is my favorite!

  68. Dacia says:

    Love #3- it’s refreshing and lovely!

  69. Jamie Smith says:

    Love #1 but #3 is a close second

  70. Linda Paul says:

    #1 is definitely my first pick for a good romantic story and the the snow just makes it perfect. #3 is my second choice because it is a very happy picture in the snow. #2 doesn’t really say buy me like the other two do. Snow on the cover is a definite must.

  71. #1 – kissing in the snow! ๐Ÿ˜€

  72. Marie Rauch says:

    I like number 1.

  73. Robin Malek says:

    I really like #1 but #3 is a close second. I would read both just by the cover. #3 makes me think older guy but that is the water mark over their heads making me see grey hair.

  74. Heather says:


  75. Lisa Harness says:

    #3. It just looks fun!

  76. Melissa S. says:


    I really like #1 picture of the couple, it would need to be more “Christmasy” if the background was ? trees or even the same back of #2 picture.

    Cant wait to read it!


  77. Mary Beam says:

    I like #3 the best! The joy and happiness on their faces draws me in and makes me want to read the story to see what put those emotions there.m

  78. Anne L. Rightler says:

    I like #3 the best but I like the colors and especially the pop of red from the hat on #1.
    Thank you for asking for our input!

  79. Shannon S. says:

    I like #2 the best.
    The colors are beautiful and the lights in the background are great.

  80. Linda Ortiz says:

    I like #1, the colors and the romance of the cover.

  81. I like the joy expressed in #3, plus it’s so different from other recent book covers.

  82. Wanda Banks says:


  83. I like #3 the best because the colors and pose are different from other Christmas novellas. #1 I also like but it is too similar to Denise Hunter’s book.

  84. Mary Preston says:

    I like the first one best. It’s a beautiful picture.

  85. Tonya Schultz says:

    I like all 3, but number 2 speaks out to me the most. Their warm loving emotions jump off the page.

  86. Barbara Watts says:

    I like #-1 32 reminds me of Fall not Christmas

  87. Barbara Watts says:

    I like #1

  88. Katherine J Horvath says:

    My favorite is

  89. Amy Durflinger says:

    I like number three. It has a different feel to it; it doesn’t shout “typical romance novel” and instead makes me want to know what the book is about.

  90. ausjenny says:

    I like number one best and then three. I like the snow and background as much as the couple. Three needs a little more in the background.

  91. Janine Waters says:

    #1 looks like he is sucking her upper lip
    #2 looks like they are giggling

    My choice is #3

  92. debbie s says:

    I love no 1 the most. A beautiful snowy setting but they look genuinely like their oblivious to the cold and present in that moment of loving intimacy celebrating their love. ๐Ÿ™‚ Romantic christmasy celebration love closeness I love it

  93. Amy Norman says:

    My eye was drawn to #3. It is simple, had a winter vibe, and was not overtly screaming “romance novel cover.”

  94. Clare O'Beara says:

    They are all nice but I prefer the third. We get enough of red and white at that time and the softer shades are beautiful, besides which we can see both people’s faces and they are enjoying the weather.

  95. Lori R says:

    I like #2 the best. My second pick would be #3.

  96. Cheryl L Carman says:

    I personally like number TWO the best. I always like the lights at Christmastime.

  97. Bri Jester says:

    My pick is #2. It has a sophisticated vibe to it and the Christmas lights it the background are a really nice touch!

    #1 and #3 are cute, but they look too similar to some of the covers Denise Hunter has used for her winter themed book.

    Have a great day,

  98. Shaye says:

    I like 1 the best but 3 is nice also

  99. Amanda says:

    #1 Is my top pick
    #3 is my second choice

    #2 Is very similar to Meghan Gorecki’s Christmas novella Wrapped in Red.

  100. Ann Badder says:

    #3 #3 #3

  101. Lyn says:

    Thanks for the comments, evetryone! These decisions are so important and difficult!

  102. I really like the colors, character positions, and wintery mood of #1. Though the watermark clouds their faces a bit making it harder to evaluate, I don’t care as much for the artistic rendition of their faces…not as professional looking, as the following two.

    #2 is very nice–and a bright color to catch the eye…though not as unique as the other two.

    #3 has a joyful mood and attractive characters…but not quite as bright as #2…

    So I guess I am on the fence, but leaning toward #3. It will be fun to find out what the consensus it! All of them are really nice, honestly!

  103. Jane Squires says:

    1 followed by three. God bless.

  104. Pauline Osborne says:

    I like #3, it seems to say they are thanking God for the miracle of snow….
