Morning Glories - TGIBBF July 1

Our challenge: Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book. Challenge sponsor is Lisa Ricard Claro.

Below is this week's "book cover" offered for our creative blurbs by Becky Povich.  My book blurb is below:


MORNING GLORIES

Sandra loved the way the morning sun peeked through the blinds as it rose. Her move to the country cottage was the best decision she’d ever made. Country life was so serene, so relaxing, so unhurried compared to living in the city. She’d grown tired of the hustle and bustle, of the never-ending horn honking and sirens at all hours.

She’d also grown tired of being reminded of Steve. Her life collapsed when he died. Around every corner a memory lay in wait. She needed a new beginning and she’d found it in Brookville. She looked forward to starting over, meeting new people, making new friends.

One of those friends was Brian. He’d welcomed her to the neighborhood and helped her with her yard work. Now he was asking her out. She wasn’t sure she was ready, but did enjoy his company. What would she do?

Romance is such an enormous market, you might think of writing the book that goes with the blurb.

I say it every time...I love romance, and this promises to be a sweet and endearing read. I just know there will be a happy ending!

Your opening paragraph evokes such serenity and is the perfect introduction to a lovely romance.

I'd read it just to see if he shovels snow, too (I originally started to type trim her bushes, and then I heard it). :-o My deepest apologies for that. I do love the book and its sunny promise of hope!
