Cover Love: Of Scotland and Musicals26

For this week’s Cover Love, I chose Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon:
Veronica doesn’t think she’s going crazy. But why can’t anyone else see the mysterious blond boy who keeps popping up wherever she goes? When her best friend, Mackenna, invites her to spend the summer in Scotland, Veronica jumps at the opportunity to leave her complicated life behind for a few months.
But the Scottish countryside holds other plans.
Not only has the imaginary kilted boy followed her to Alloway, she and Mackenna uncover a strange set of rings and a very unnerving letter from Mackenna’s great aunt—and when the girls test the instructions Aunt Gracie left behind, they find themselves transported to a land that defies explanation. Doon seems like a real-life fairy tale, complete with one prince who has eyes for Mackenna and another who looks suspiciously like the boy from Veronica’s daydreams. But Doon has a dark underbelly as well. The two girls could have everything they’ve longed for…or they could end up breaking an enchantment and find themselves trapped in a world that has become a nightmare.
DOON is loosely based on the premise of the musical Brigadoon, with permission from the ALan Jay Lerner Estate and the Frederick Loewe Foundation.
What I Love:
I love everything about this cover! I love all the greenery, the mysterious mist, the gorgeous garnet-colored gown, the blue sky, the castle in the background, everything! Plus, how could I not want to read a book that is inspired by a musical and set in Scotland?! I am so excited for Doon to be released!

Hooray! I’m really excited for it to come out, the story sounds so good (plus, THE COVER)! :)
I’m also super excited for Doon, I was even in Brigadoon when I was in high school, aw the memories ;-)
Brigadoon so great, I love musicals! :)

Welcome back! I’ve missed you on Cover Love. :)
And oh my gosh, yes, such a pretty color. Love all the freens.
Thanks, it was fun to join in again this week! :) Blue and green are my favorite colors, so I was happy to see both on this cover!
Doon looks amazing. I love the background with all the hills and mist,. It looks really fantasy-eque and magical. Beautiful cover! :)
I’m so excited to read it! :)
That cover is gorgeous! Also, it’s so cool that it’s set in Scotland :)
I haven’t read a book set in Scotland yet, so I was excited to see that DOON was; Scotland sounds like such a great setting! :)
What a beautiful cover! The colors are gorgeous. The story sounds great too! :)
I’m so excited to read it! :)
So pretty!!! I can’t wait to read this book!
I’ll probably stare at the cover for a bit when I first get it! ;)
I love books set in Scotland – it’s one of my guilty pleasure countries that I’d love to visit but until then I’ll just satisfy myself with reading about characters who are there. And this book is beautiful. I’d not heard of it before but thanks for bringing it to my attention! :D
I haven’t read a book set in Scotland yet, but I’d love to! Scotland sounds like a really great setting! :)
Most of the ones I’ve read have been romance of the more adult variety – you know… a few bodice rippers – with the Highlanders and what not. Guilty pleasures :P
Yep loving the cover!
It’s one of my favorites! :)
