Chocolate Charade - TGIBBF June 17

Our mission: Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book, sponsored by Lisa Ricard Claro.


Our visual: This is the photo on which we base our writing, provided by Sioux Roslawski.

Jacques Gendarme is back on the case, this time hired by the niece of the head of the Groupe Casino, one of the world’s leading food retailers. She believes the man purporting to be her uncle, Pierre Renoir, is an imposter and that he is in danger. Asked how she came to believe this, she said, “He has always called me Petit Chou, but he didn’t know who I was when I phone him at the office. He then pretended to be distracted as an excuse.” The evidence was flimsy, but he needed the work. What Jacques would find would lead him directly to the files of INTERPOL and put even his employment benefactor at risk.

I love spy stories and this reads like it's going to be a perfect one! I just love the name Jacques Gendarme, or did I say that last time? LOL

I'm very picky about the thrillers I read, but this one sounds like it would be a page-turner! Well done!

Intrigue, action and perhaps a little romance thrown into the mix? A name like Jacques Gendarme just begs for that. I'm headed to the cashier now!

You have the makings of a terrific spy/thriller here! And you used the photo perfectly. I'm ready to buy this one, Wendy!
