Help choosing a cover

Hi there,

I've finished my third crime novel and made a cover for it. Well... several covers actually, due to comments of family members .

Now I'm facing the problem that I've got to make a choice at some point. I hope you can help me out by entering your favorite.

Even though this book stands alone, I'd like to maintain a cover in style to the first two.

I've made a poll with Google form. It's Dutch, but the text is not really necessary. It starts with the images of my first two books and follows with 5 choices.

The images of the choices are small, sadly, but if you want, you can see bigger images on my Facebookpage: Maritsboeken. See the folder named "Covers voor Vermoorde Onschuld".

Who will help me out? Make your choice!
for your opinion

I went with the last because the others seemed too 'busy'

I voted I think the second one. The last one doesn't work becaue the strip that has the title and autho on the first two books look plain. The last one looks like it has a curved line in it. IT doesn;t match the format of the other two books. Any of the covers that have that really need to be scrapped from the poll as they don't work because they don't match the first two covers well enough.

Deep inside I have to agree with you. Those were the first tries and I still love them, but you're right, they don't match the other two.

Thank you for your vote and you're explanation
