Shivering, I wind my arms around my ribs.That’s when I see him. Dr. Hunter Cayman.The man the town has been whispering about. The man no one really seems to know. The man my father despises.He’s across the street, leaning against a steel monster–a low-slung black car, its curves somehow wicked in the night. Rain sparkles like fire on the front hood under the glow of the orange streetlamps. His startling, magnetic intensity pulls at me so hard that I can’t seem to look away. Aeris Thorne is expecting a restful vacation in the remote town of Deep Cove. But on a stormy night, she meets the alluring and mysterious Hunter Cayman, and her life takes an exhilarating turn. Aeris is both drawn to him and determined to find out what heâs hiding. Itâs clear Hunter has found success with the high-security lab on his vast estate.

At the same time, she begins to wonder if sheâs found the key to unraveling her own tragic past. When Aerisâs life is threatened, Hunter is forced to make an impossible decision about her futureâone that could change everything.
The first thing that really catches your eye about âThe Butterfly Codeâ by Sue Wyshynski is this unique cover â Book covers are designed to attract the attention of the reader and this one does its job perfectly.
I cannot remember ever writing about a cover in any of my reviews but I take this special one as an opportunity to mention something I noticed lately.
One thing is the fact that once a certain book has gained some attention suddenly all books of the same theme tend to have completely similar covers. My feelings are divided about this â while on one side it is nice to already know from far away that the book you are looking at will be containing a certain kind of story â it is also on the other side missing out a chance to make this book unique.
The other thing I noticed – which is even worse – that lately many authors tend to use the same places to get their book cover pictures. The end result is what happened to me just some weeks ago. In the short period of 1 week I came across one picture that has been used on no less than 4 different books.
Donât get me wrong â it was a beautiful picture and fitted the first book perfect (the others not so much). But when I saw it on the next books â I thought if I would be in the place of the author I would like to know that there are several books that came out at the almost same time with the same cover. So I contacted the authors of the 3 books with the later publishing date and told them about it (and I mean I only saw 4 books who knows how many are actually out there using that picture). And what really got to me was the response I got from one of them. âYeah that happens if you use IStock ( I believe it was ) â canât do much about itâ
â¦ Really ? you spend hours, days, weeks of your time to write a story and than you do not care about the cover that is supposed to be the first thing that your future reader will see ? WOW â¦ that was a first for me.So this is the reason why I would like to mention a cover like this one.
Coming to the story itself â I do not want to give away to much. Just that it was well written and the storyline is as intriguing as it was unique.T
he author did a fine job to capture the attention of the reader and you will be drawn into the story from the first moment. And the developing relationship between the leading characters is just breathtaking. I am sure you will enjoy the book as much as I did and I cannot wait to get more.
