Book Blurb #37: Rio Sinuoso
Welcome again to Book Blurb Friday. If you’re a newbie, here’s the scoop so you understand what follows. Please click HERE or click the tab under the blog header for details of the Book Blurb Friday meme. This is the shortened, abridged version:
Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.
Below is this week’s “book cover,” generously offered for our creative blurbs by Kathy Matthews at Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy. My blurb follows.
Becca Stanhope grew up on the Río Sinuoso Ranch and participated in everything from birthing calves to cattle drives—and loved every minute of it. Her stepfather, Luis de Villars, is expected to pass the ranch to Becca when he retires.When Luis is killed in a freak accident, his estranged son, Marco, is named an equal partner with Becca. By terms of the will, neither Becca nor Marco may claim their share of Rio Sinuoso without first working together as ranch owners for one year, after which they may continue their partnership, or one buy out the other.When catastrophes begin occurring around the ranch and questions arise in Luis’ death, the evidence points to Marco. Now Becca must decide if she will believe in the man she’s grown to love, or work in secret to prove he’s guilty of sabotaging the ranch, and worse—murder.
