Cover Stars: The Vintage Guide To Love And Romance by Kirsty Greenwood

Gorgeous covers. Gorgeous covers everywhere
The Vintage Guide To
Love And Romance
by Kirsty Greenwood

Jessica Beam is a girl who knows how to party. Only lately she's been forgetting to turn up for work on time. Or in clean clothes. Down on her luck, out of a job and homeless, Jess seeks the help of her long-lost grandmother.

Things aren't going well for Matilda Beam, either. Her 1950s Good Woman guide books are out of print, her mortgage repayments are staggering and her granddaughter wears neon Wonderbras.

When a lifeline from a London publisher arrives, the pair have an opportunity to secure the roof over their heads - by invigorating the Good Woman guides and transforming modern, rebellious Jess into a demure vintage lady.

The true test of their make-over will be to capture the heart of notorious London playboy Leo Frost and prove that Matilda's guides still work. It's going to take commitment, nerves of steel and one seriously pointy bra to pull this off . . .

The Vintage Guide To Love And Romance has quite a simple cover, with just the image of Jessica Beam, the title and author name and the tagline but I love all the little details within the image; the vintage red-and-white polka-dotted dress with the modern shoes and mobile phone. The image of Jessica is so striking and the red of her dress and the title really pops against the pale blue background, making this book difficult to miss of the shelf. You can't help being drawn to this cover as it's so eye-catchingly gorgeous!
