Book Blurb #48: The Perrywynkle Posse

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 the talented writer (and photographer, too!)  Tammy Goodsell at Message in a Bloggle.  My book blurb follows.

The Perrywynkle Posse
(149 words)
The Perrywynkle Periwinkle is a groundcover developed by Penelope Perrywynkle, successful fashion maven-cum-botanist. When not in her greenhouse she is reinventing the world of fashion, one accessory at a time. The color of the Perrywynkle Periwinkle is Penelope’s signature shade, and she never leaves home without it.
When Penelope turns up missing and then reappears two weeks later without even a dab of her classic pink, octogenarian triplets Rose, Lily and Daisy, founders of the Perrywynkle Garden Club, become suspicious. And when the ladies discover the new Penelope doesn’t know a peony from . . . well, a periwinkle . . . they know there’s real trouble afoot.
Dubbing themselves the Perrywynkle Posse, the sisters set out to find the real Penelope and expose the imposter. They’ll use every weapon at hand, from knitting needles to support hose, to save their friend and bring the dastardly doppelganger to justice. 
This week’s blurb was such fun to write! Rose, Lily and Daisy would be lots of fun if I ever turned this into a real story. I should fess up, also, that I have no idea if the bloom in the photo is a periwinkle. It looks like it to me, but then I’m a serial plant killer, so I can only claim creative license on this.  Is it a periwinkle? Tammy? Anyone else recognize this lovely flower?
