This month, Michele Argyle at Melissa Williams Design reimagines the cover of Don’t Tell Anyone by Laurie Boris, who said the new cover “works on so many levels.”

Design Note #1: Adding two subtitles gives readers a clearer sense of what they can expect from this family secrets mystery.

Design Note #2:The minimalist color scheme sets an inviting, warm tone that will appeal to many readers.

Design Note #3: The new cover still indicates that food is a large part of the story, but the illustrated image more clearly nudges the book into the women’s fiction genre.

Design Note #4:The title interacting with the artwork shows that though this is a mystery, it’s a fun and playful read.
