Comparing Covers #39: The Other Lady Vanishes by Amanda Quick

by Aleen @ Lampshade Reader

Welcome to Comparing Covers where I showcase a book title that has multiple covers; from first editions, re-releases, and international releases.

While I (impatiently) wait for Tightrope, the next installment of the Burning Cove series, I wanted to explore the cover variations for The Other Lady Vanishes by Amanda Quick.




After escaping from a private sanitarium, Adelaide Blake arrives in Burning Cove, California, desperate to start over. Working at an herbal tea shop puts her on the radar of those who frequent the seaside resort town: Hollywood movers and shakers always in need of hangover cures and tonics. One such customer is Jake Truett, a recently widowed businessman in town for a therapeutic rest. But unbeknownst to Adelaide, his exhaustion is just a cover.

In Burning Cove, no one is who they seem. Behind facades of glamour and power hide drug dealers, gangsters, and grifters. Into this make-believe world comes psychic to the stars Madame Zolanda. Adelaide and Jake know better than to fall for her kind of con. But when the medium becomes a victim of her own dire prediction and is killed, they’ll be drawn into a murky world of duplicity and misdirection.

Neither Adelaide or Jake can predict that in the shadowy underground they’ll find connections to the woman Adelaide used to be–and uncover the specter of a killer who’s been real all along…


I’m still partial to the original Berkley edition. Although, I really can’t find fault with any of them. Vote for your favorite below!

Fun fact: The Hungarian version directly translates to The Girl Who Got Hooded. (I used Google translate to figure out what language that was in.) LOL. BTW–I think I may have found a new blog segment. Work in progress. 🙂

These are pretty! My fave is also the first because of the pretty color/pattern thing!


Uk Version followed by US edition 1.

Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library

I think I like the first one best for the kind of book it is with the UK version coming in second. The other two don’t say suspense to me.

I like the UK cover best.
