Book Blurb Friday #55: Dangerous Waters

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,” offered for our creative blurbs by the talented Kathy Matthews at Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy.  My book blurb follows.

Dangerous Waters
(149 words)
Journalist Tracy Sanborn has earned the right to cover hard-hitting stories, so she’s unhappy when her new assignment is coverage of a fishing tournament in a remote coastal town in Oregon.
Tracy struggles to turn the fluff piece into worthy reading and finds it hopeless, until millionaire playboy Rand Bourdeaux enters the tournament and lands dead in the water—literally.
Tracy dogs the local sheriff, Hugh Danna, hoping for a scoop. Understaffed and overworked, Hugh agrees to a deal: If Tracy shares any information she uncovers, Hugh will give her the scoop on the official investigation.
But Tracy’s snooping dredges up old town secrets and buried scandals, muddying the investigation and leading into dangerous waters. Tracy calls on Hugh, and together they connect the past with the present, finally setting bait to catch a desperate killer who has no intention of being reeled in, and doesn’t mind killing again.
