While looking through the August releases, I came across this unlikely pair of novels, united by a stockphoto: Margaret Dilloway's The Care and Handling of Roses with Thorns (Putnam) and Yvette Edwards' A Cupboard Full of Coats (Amistad).

The images have different light treatments, crops and type additions, but this is definitely the same yellow rose and peeling blue barn. I've seen similar covers before, but this is the first time I've seen the exact same image used on two jackets that are being released in the same month. Which book do you think used the image better?
