Similar Covers: Necklaces

Here is a foursome of recent covers that look similar, although none use the same image:

The Four Ms. Bradwells by Meg Waite Clayton is the cover I’m most familiar with (I read and reviewed Meg’s first book, The Wednesday Sisters, a couple of years ago); her new book was just published in March by Ballantine Books (a division of Random House).

Little Black Dress by Susan McBride is almost the reverse cover; it’s coming out at the end of August with William Morrow (a Harper Collins imprint).

Populazzi by Elise Allen and Saving Maddie by Varian Johnson both match the first cover but feature different necklaces. Populazzi is out at the beginning of August with Harcourt Children’s Books (a division of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), while Saving Maddie is the oldest of the bunch: it came out in 2010 with Delacorte Books for Young Readers (a Random House imprint).

Seeing them all together, the skin colour of the first woman looks wrong!

Have you seen any other covers that match these?


  1. The do have a similar feel, but they're all distinct.

  2. makes me want to get a necklace now... hmmm ... pearls.. yes will do pearls tonight ;)

  3. The only book cover that looks familiar to me is Little Black Dress which I look forward to reviewing.

  4. She looks very pale indeed!!

  5. I love that they're all so similar... and yet markedly different.

    Fun topic!

  6. I followed over from Susan McBride's fb link. I've seen and commented on the first two covers, but hadn't seen the others. I was actually surprised, wondering if publishing houses didn't search out more to avoid similar cover looks.

  7. You are right. The skin on that first woman does look like she might be a bit sick!
