TGIBBF July 15 - Adventure Island

If you are new to this writing challenge, please click HERE for details of the Book Blurb Friday meme.  The abridged version:
Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.
This is our "book cover" for Book Blurb Friday #20, provided by Lisa Ricard Claro’s daughter, Christina.



Alexis had found the perfect place for their romantic getaway. A secluded island hideaway with a picturesque wooden bridge that connected it to the mainland resort that owned it. She just knew Jared would love it. There were horse trails, a picnic area, private beach and a gate they could lock to keep the curious at bay. She’d made reservations a year ago, and that only because of a cancellation.

Jared didn’t know where they were going or how long Alexis had been planning this trip. But, he didn’t mind not knowing. She always arranged the best adventures for them and he expected that this trip would be no exception.

He was right. The location was fantastic. But, the adventure really began when they arose the first morning and found a still warm corpse outside their door.

Okay, you got me. LOL I floated along on the balmy resort delights expecting romance aplenty. Never saw the dead guy coming. If I were at the book store, I'd figure that was a clue that this book would offer more surprises, and I'd keep it in my basket. Great blurb!

I'm with Lisa. I feel like I tripped over that corpse right along with them. Even the word choice--corpse!--my light read just took on a whole new twist!

I was totally sucked into the pleasant, romantic vacation and then bam! a body. I'd love to read this one.

You're stopping now? That's just not fair. Hurry and write this story.

I with Lisa and Tammy and Calico Crazy. The still-warm corpse was a surprise. Great idea for a story twist.
