Cover Crush: Starlings by Amada Linsmeier

Starlings by Amada Linsmeier is so #CoverCrush worthy it’s hard to take my eyes away from it! I love the sinister vibe this cover gives off, very chilling and beautiful. This is a dark paranormal fantasy, for fans of Small Favors & House of Hollow, full of roses and some seriously sinister family secrets. Oh and the MC is bisexual so it’s a perfect Pride Month grab (even though the setting is more for the holidays). This beautiful feminist horror is hitting shelves on June 27th!

A dark YA fantasy debut perfect for fans of House of Hollow and Small Favors. In the wake of her father's death, a teen girl discovers a side of her family she didn't know existed, and is pulled into a dark--and ancient--bargain she is next in line to fulfill.

Kit's father had always told her he had no family, but four months ago his sudden death revealed the truth. Now she has a grandmother she never knew she had--Agatha Starling--and an invitation to visit her father's hometown, Rosemont.
And Rosemont . . . it's picture perfect: the famed eternal roses bloom year-round, downtown is straight out of the 1950s . . . there's even a cute guy to show Kit around.

The longer Kit's there, though, the stranger it all feels. The Starling family is revered, but there's something off about how the Starling women seem to be at the center of the all the town's important history. And as welcoming as the locals are, Kit can't shake the feeling that everyone seems to be hiding something from her.

Agatha is so happy to finally meet her only granddaughter, and the town is truly charming, but Kit can't help wondering, if everything is so great in Rosemont, why did her father ever leave? And why does it seem like he never wanted her to find it?
