Can I just begin with saying I am so excited to reveal this cover to you all? So, so excited!
As you may know, author Liz Grace Davis is a contributor and a driving force behind The Women’s Fiction Review. Without her willingness this blog wouldn’t be even partially possible. She is so funny and generous and kind, knowing her as been such a gift and I can honestly say, without exaggerating in the least, she one of my very best writerly friends. Her commitment to seeing that the WF genre reaches its fans and that the good books our genre has to offer spring from the shelves into the hands of readers is one of the many reasons our blog exists at all. So, naturally, when the opportunity presented itself to unveil the new cover for her novel Honeysuckle and Jasmine, it was simply a given we’d do it right here. And today is the big day!
Liz, I am all so proud of you…and I’m sure everyone agrees with me when I say: Your new cover is just gorgeous! Congratulations!
Here is the brand new, never-before-seen cover for Honeysuckle and Jasmine…
I told you it was gorgeous! But believe me when I say, the cover isn’t the only gorgeous thing about Liz’s newest novel…the story is beautiful too!

The past is never far behind.
Senia Loato’s life has been needled by disappointment, and the wounds that fester go beyond skin deep. She is certain if she puts miles between her and her tainted past, she will somehow outrun it. When she’s offered the chance to leave her island home of Mintang to become an au pair for three boys in Germany, she takes the opportunity to start running.
In Germany, she meets Miina, another African au pair. What builds between them is a life-defining friendship, one they will risk everything for.
And soon, they’ll be asked nothing less.
When Miina is betrayed and left stranded, Senia stands by her, risking much more than just her stay in Germany. She also stands to lose rich, handsome, turquoise-eyed Roman Dorenwald, the first man she has allowed into her heart.
But they’re risks worth taking.
Eventually, Senia makes a sacrifice that catapults her back to her past, where she’s forced to draw back the curtain and discover the shocking truth of her history.
Can she confront her nightmares, reach deep into her soul, and forgive those who have hurt her? Or is it easier to just keep running?
Honeysuckle and Jasmine is one of those brave novels that bleeds bareness of the soul and beauty from every single page. I was afforded the opportunity, back when this book was living on the screen of Liz’s computer, to read it as a beta, I could hardly concentrate on ‘doing my job’…the story consumed me whole. A reader called it ‘eye-opening’ and they were right, it is eye-opening. Partially inspired by true events, this book is one you should be reading…and with a cover so interesting and intriguing, how could you possibly resist? Snag your copy HERE.
