Brook Cottage Books is thrilled to reveal the cover for Vegas to Varanasi by Shelly Hickman. I think you will agree it is a stunning book cover!

A message from Shelly Hickman:

'As part of my cover reveal, I’m offering an advanced reader copy to anyone who would be willing to share a review on Amazon (and Goodreads, if it’s not too much trouble) during the first week of December. If you are interested, please contact me at sydneyhickman91@gmail.com, or message me on Facebook, indicating in which format you would like your ARC (Kindle, Nook, or pdf), and I will gladly send you a copy.'


Anna has never been the beautiful one; she’s always been the nice one. So when the gorgeous man sitting across the table at a wedding reception remembers her from high school—and quite fondly at that—she’s taken off guard. Formerly overweight and unpopular, Kiran has never forgotten Anna, the one person who was kind to him when no one else could be bothered, and Anna’s a bit flustered as she slowly comes to grips with his intense attraction for her. In what feels like a romantic dream come true, all-grown-up, hunky Kiran invites Anna on a trip to Varanasi. But her troubled, whack-a-do ex-boyfriend starts interfering, creating drama at every turn, which begs the question, “Can nice girls really finish first?”

Author Bio:

She graduated from UNLV with a Bachelor of Art in 1990, and in her early twenties worked as an illustrator for a contractor for the Nevada Test Site.

  2. I was so excited to see the cover, Shelly! I loved this book so much and it deserves a gorgeous cover! What a beautiful love story. In addition to being captivated by the budding romance between Anna and Kiran, I was incredibly moved by Anna's relationships with her children, her friends, and especially the very unique and special relationship with her ex-husband. So many lessons and rich characters to learn from and enjoy! Well done, Shelly!!! This is a must-read for everyone!
