These were for USA versions of the British writer Freya North's books.
"Secrets" is set in Saltburn on Sea on the north east coast of England. The publishers wanted a very general, beachy, summery feel to the cover with a bikini and beach towel. I drew what I imagine a beach in Georgia or South Carolina to look like. When I kept thinking about the actual setting of the book I would think of how my partner is from the North East and even in the summer I don't think I've ever been to the coast with him and taken my coat off!
