Cover Reveal: Reinventing Claire by Darian Wilk

Hello Readers,

Today I'm thrilled to have Darian Wilk back on the blog. I reviewed her novel Love Unfinished in February of this year and thoroughly enjoyed her novel. My review can be found here. 

So naturally, when Darian asked me if I would be willing to help her out with a cover reveal, I jumped at the chance. 

Reinventing Claire is Darian Wilk's sophomore novel which I for one am definitely looking forward to reading. Darian's first novel was heartwarming, touching, and beautifully written. 

Before I get into the synopsis and reveal the cover, I'd like to share some information about Darian.

Darian Wilk was born in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, the youngest of two children. WhileVa toddler, her family moved back to their home state of Michigan, where she still lives today.VShe was the quiet, constant shadow to her older brother, her childhood hero, and still clings to their friendship now.  

After high school Darian tried her hand at college, majoring in Nursing while working as a Physical Therapy Technician. "I loved my job, but I still couldn't picture doing it forever," she says now. But before she even finished her degree she became pregnant, and focused her attention on the challenges of being a single mother to her daughter.

In 2005, Darian married her best friend, Steve, whom she met and became close friends with before she had her daughter. In their second year of marriage, Darian became pregnant with her son. She worked on and off throughout her twenties as a Home Health Aid to the elderly, but preferred to stay home and raise her babies.  In 2007, her mom was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and Darian quit working to tend to her mom. It was in those three years of taking care of her that Darian realized how precious life really is. And in her moms last year of life, she finally had the courage to pursue what her heart had always secretly longed for; becoming a writer. It was then that she started her
debut novel, Love Unfinished, and continues her journey today.

Darian writes women's and mainstream fiction, as well as paranormal romance.

Darian can be reached through her website, her twitter account, and her facebook. Also learn more about Reinventing Claire by checking out her book trailer and by  going to Goodreads

And now it's time to reveal the cover and the synopsis. 

Claire has no choice but to take on the title of Divorced Woman, and face the question she has no idea how to answer. Who is Claire without Charlie? Her family believes her newly divorced woes can be cured by jumping back into the dating scene – and landing herself a boyfriend. With her dating dunce cap in hand, Claire stumbles her way through the foreign territory of online dating.

A teacher from hell, a stalker, and a softball coach later, Claire proclaims herself the dating idiot she thought she was, and fears she's doomed to be a lonely, crazy cat lady. But an accidental run-in with an old acquaintance might change everything. What starts by comparing dating battle wounds over a cup of coffee, quickly turns into something Claire thought she had given up on.

As Claire discovers maybe there is love after Charlie after all, Charlie realizes his mistake. He wants her back, and he'll do anything to prove it to her. Now Claire must choose who deserves her heart, and if she's really willing to give it away again.

My Thoughts:

First off, I love the cover. It's bright and definitely catches my attention. And the synopsis..."WOW!" That's all I have to say. It looks incredible. This definitely  seems like a novel I'd love reading. And I know for a fact, that Darian is a great writer and creates beautifully realistic writers, so yeah I'm dying to read this one.

Trust me, put this one on your to-read list. You won't regret it.

Hope you enjoyed the cover reveal!
