Misleading book spine of the week

Can you read that? Impatient with Desire. Bright red flowers and lush greenery. I saw that spine among the advance reading copies in our store's break room and thought it might be some torrid tropical romance. I pulled it from the stack and was surprised to see this cover:

"That looks like Donner Lake," I thought, and I was right. This is not a tropical romance; it's a novel about the Donner Party. Score!

LOL! What the...?

I can't imagine a new angle on the Donner Party story but ya never know. They've obviously branched on the cover. Let me know what you think.
