Cover Love (2): Since We Last Spoke

Cover Love is a bookish meme that I'm starting every Wednesday in which we select our favorite recent cover reveals! Feel free to join in on the linky below.

My pick for this week is the lovely Since We Last Spoke by Brenda Rufener. 
Release Date: April 2nd, 2019

When true love is shattered by tragedy—how much would you risk to save it all?

When Aggi Frank and Max Granger finally admitted their feelings for each other last December, it felt like love was beautiful and endless... until it wasn’t.

A fatal car accident involving their older siblings throws their lives into sudden chaos. And with a restraining order now in place between the two bitter households, Aggi and Max’s love runs cold. Being together again seems like a distant fantasy, even though they share the same driveway.

Still, Plum Lake is a small town, and staying apart can’t last forever. Aggi and Max eventually reunite at a lake-house party hosted by a mutual friend and break the ice after a year of silence. But just as they begin to rebuild their relationship, the unthinkable happens when Aggi’s little sister, Grace, flees from home after their father spirals into a fit of rage. With a support system of friends close by, Aggi and Max must confront each other and their families in the hopes of mending all the broken pieces.

Perfect for fans of Jennifer Niven and Nicola Yoon, Brenda Rufener’s (Where I Live) second heartbreaking and uplifting novel captures the ups and downs of star-crossed lovers in the face of unimaginable grief, the fragile balance of their family relations, and the rocky journey to healing, peace, and forgiveness.

I love everything about this cover. The snow and tress, the font and color of the title, the two houses blowing smoke, the two figures standing on opposite sides of the driveway, the way the trees form the shape of a heart.

 I haven't read Brenda Rufener's debut, Where I Live, but I definitely want this pretty thang on my shelves. Happy reading!
