TGIBBF Book Blurb Friday, July 22 - Stone Angel

As always, Lisa Ricard Claro hosts Book Blurb Friday in which we are to do the following:
Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.
This week our "book cover" for Book Blurb Friday #21 has been provided by Sioux Roslawski
If you want to join us, please feel free to share your creativity. What story do you see in this potential book cover?


Andy Stone laid the flower by her grave. He missed her so much these days. She was always able to see him through the difficult times, to help him see the light at the end of the long, dark tunnel. She knew how to comfort him. But, ever since that fateful day in March, he felt so alone and helpless. How would he go on? No one knew him like she did. “Why did you leave me, Terri? What am I going to do?”
The voice came softly, gently, almost whispering: “You’ll be fine, Cuddlebug. Remember my words always. They were true then, they’re true now.”
No one called him Cuddlebug but Terri. He had to be imagining it. “Remember, Cuds. The strength is within you.” Andy looked all around him. All could see was a stone statue of a woman. A woman who looked amazingly likeTerri. Like Terri Stone.

Oh! What a great idea for a story. True love never dies. Isn't that why we visit a cemetery anyway, to either show that we are remembering our loved ones or to be comforted somehow? I wonder if Terri will help him over the hump and then leave when Andy is stronger, or if she will stay with him always.

I would really like to know how this one fills out and ends.

You really did make it on time! LOL I'm happy to read your blurb no matter when you post it. :) The romance factor is enough to pull me in here, and like Kathy M., I wonder if Terri will stick around or help him find a new love.

Wonderful, Wendy. (And on time, too, LOL.)
I love the nickname "Cuddlebug" and the even more endearing "Cuds"!!
You have a great imagination. Truly.

Terri STONE. Cuddlebug, and the even more wonderful "Cuds." Great names, and a blurb that would make me want to read the book. (I was really late posting this week.)
