Lakeside Tree - Copycat Cover

Becoming a bit of a habit this, spotting a duplicate cover as I prepare the new reviews. The tree was on the trade paperback version of The Calling of the Grave but was obscured more by the writing. Why We Die is from 2006 and is OOP but cheap on Kindle and I'm not sure where it's set. Whereas, from the review(s), The Calling of the Grave seems set mostly near Dartmoor. I'm sure that tree has graced more covers than these two...

Lady in Red - Cover Theme

In one of those weird coincidences, today at work I placed copies of both of these books on the 'recently returned & popular reads' stand. The cover for the more recent Season Light is very striking and then I noticed they both had the same lady in them, albeit with a modified bodice.

NB. The actual cover of Season of Light comes with a sticker (of course) saying:
"We think if you like PHILIPPA GREGORY you'll love KATHARINE McMAHON"

Can't keep a good cover down

A few months ago I posted an example of where the same cover has been used on three titles. I've now found a fourth use, though this time it's been modified a tad:













Update: and in a similar vein & 2) a cover from another country (July 10):
