Hi everyone! I love looking at book covers (even if we don’t tend to see them as often these days because of e-books); I even feature some of my favorite book covers in a Cover Crush series. So, in that vein, I love helping to promote cover reveals. Today I am featuring the reveal of The Fortune Teller by Gwendolyn Womack.
So, let’s check out what this cover looks like!!
The Fortune Teller by Gwendolyn Womack
Publication Date: June 6, 2017
eBook & Paperback, 320 pages
Genre: Fiction/Romantic Suspense
While this is not a straight historical fiction novel, the mysterious nature does revolve around something that happened in the ancient past.
Semele Cohen appraises antiquities for an exclusive Manhattan auction house, specializing in deciphering ancient texts. And when she discovers a manuscript written in the time of Cleopatra, she knows it will be the find of her career. Its author tells the story of a priceless tarot deck, now lost to history, but as Semele delves further she realizes the manuscript is more than it seems. Both a memoir and a prophecy, it appears to be the work of a powerful seer, describing devastating wars and natural disasters in detail thousands of years before they occurred.
The more she reads, the more the manuscript begins to affect Semele’s life. But what happened to the cards? As the mystery of her connection to the manuscript deepens, Semele can’t shake the feeling that she’s being followed. Only one person can help her make sense of it all: her client, Theo Brossard. Yet Theo is arrogant and elusive, concealing secrets of his own, and there’s more to Semele’s desire to speak with him than she would like to admit. Can Semele even trust him?
The auction date is swiftly approaching, and someone wants to interfere—someone who knows the cards exist, and that the Brossard manuscript is tied to her. Semele realizes it’s up to her to stop them: the manuscript holds the key to a two-thousand-year-old secret, a secret someone will do anything to possess.
