TGIBBF - Book Blurb Friday, April 29

Thanks to Lisa Ricard Claro for her hosting of TGIBBF (Thank God it’s Book Blurb Friday). We are to write a book blurb of 140 words or less appropriate for the book we imagine being behind this fake book jacket photo. My entry is below the photo.

A South Beach Body (a Kat Kimball Mystery)

Kat was thrilled about relocating to Florida. She was tired of the crime and seedy atmosphere that surrounded her in Philadelphia. Bodies were turning up everywhere. And the things people tried to take in their carry-on luggage! It had to be better somewhere else. So, when an opening was announced at Miami International for a TSA Security Checkpoint supervisor, she applied and was thrilled to be offered the transfer.

South Beach was definitely living up to her B-list requirements. You know: beach, body surfing, beautiful weather, bars, and a boardwalk. Unfortunately, there was another item on her B-list she hadn’t planned for or wanted. 

A body.

Love this! Great hook with her career choice, and your "B-list" segues perfectly into the twist (the body). Very well done, Wendy. This looks like a winner!

Lots of alliteration lying around this week - and a B-list is a good hook.

Wow! Beyond belief. (Lol, I loved all of your B's, btw). What a start to a great mystery. I'd buy it for sure.

Hmm. Interesting set up. I guess TSA Security was more than she bargained for.

Very catchy. Who could resist this one? And why would they want to? The B list was brilliant.

I loved the string of "B" things, leading to the body. Well done.
