HaBO: Find it based on Cover Art

Bitchery reader Gillian writes

OK, maybe you hate these vague questions (I’ve worked at a bookstore and I know I hated them), but I have to ask..

Around Christmas, I was in Barnes & Noble and saw a romance novel. I didn’t buy it (it was right before Xmas, I was swamped, I knew if I bought it, I’d go home and read it and I had a million things to do) and I stupidly also didn’t write down the title or author. It may have been a category romance, but I can’t say for sure. The cover photo was a man, with a woman (standing on a porch?) in jeans and a t-shirt looking at him from behind. I do remember that she had a (spunky!) short haircut, because I am SO SICK of flowing tresses. The plot was something like he returned home, she was the tomboy girl next door all grown up. As I write this, I’m thinking, this plot is so tired, but at the time, it sounded like a good book and I have been wishing I bought it ever since. Do you have ANY idea what book I could be talking about? It was on one of the center displays, with multiple copies, which makes me think it was more than just another category romance.

Anyone got a clue which book this is?

    It sounds like it could be “Not the Marrying Kind” by Hailey North. The premise matches and she’s got short, spiky hair, but she’s leaning out a (porch?) window kissing him. And he didn’t have a shirt on.

    Maybe not, but there aren’t too many with the spiky hair.

    That’s the one I think it is, too. I guess that’s neat that we remember it, which means it is vaguely more interesting than the other covers out there – could be a good one.

    I third or fourth that suggestion. That’s the one that immediately came to mind for me.

    Hee! Because of this HaBO, I saw this cover at the used book store and immediately bought it – only to have it “confiscated” (ie, borrowed, ie, stolen) by my best friend – who will return it in (hopefully) a few weeks the next time I see her. I wanted to read it!
