Book Blurb Friday #14: Bonbons Malaxés (Kneaded Sweets)
Did anyone else have a crazy week? My time belonged to everyone else this week and I found it a struggle to sit at my laptop for any length of time to accomplish my writing. Fortunately, I was able to complete today’s book blurb, though for a while there it looked iffy. Another interruption and I might have hyperventilated. But, no fear! The blurb is done, and this week’s photo below is provided by writer and world traveler Kay Davies.
If you are new to this blog, 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 inspiration by the lovely and talented Kay Davies :
Annette, Yvette, and MiMi Fornier are sisters renowned for their beauty and baking skills. Their boulangerie, Bonbons Malaxés (Kneaded Sweets), is across from the local Commissariat de Police, and popular with the officers. So are Annette, Yvette and MiMi, who provoke ooh-la-la’s for more than just their raspberry tarts.When the Commissariat is overtaken by terrorists, Bonbons Malaxés becomes the headquarters for the hostage negotiators. While the sisters keep the pâtisserie and café flowing, they fret over the fate of the policemen being held hostage. Surely there’s something they can do! Mais oui?Armed with their famous cream puffs, éclairs, and Christian Louboutin stilettos, the girls decide to stage hostage negotiations their own way. But first they must circumvent the officials residing in their bakery and sneak into the Commissariat; then they’ll use all the sweets at their disposal to frost the bad guys. Ooh-la-la! (146 words)
So what do you think? Will the bad guys overdose on sugar before their evil demands can be met? Will the girls save the day? It’s my blurb and I say, OUI! (How do you say, “They’ll kick ass!” in French?**)
Please put your name and URL in Mr. Linky so others can link back to you and read your blurb, then scroll a little further for a peek at the photo for next week.
Here is next week’s photo, provided by my young ‘un, Joey.
Have a safe and pleasant weekend!
** “They’ll kick ass” translates (per Babel Fish) to “ils donneront un coup de pied l’âne.” Huh. It kind of loses its punch, doesn’t it?
