Book Blurb Friday,
the back-cover meme.
Each week, Lisa Ricard Claro of Writing in the Buff, posts a photo or picture (today a photo by writer-blogger Sioux Roslawski), to inspire others to imagine a book, then write a "blurb" about that book, using no more than 150 words, to convince potential readers to buy it.
After visiting Jim’s grave, Averie felt as Lot’s wife must have felt after being turned into a pillar of stone. Her legs didn’t want to walk, her lips didn’t want to talk, and her hands simply clasped one another in a painful parody of prayer.
Someone had shot at another politician, killing Jim, an innocent bystander, and a Rottweiler.
Author Minnie Cooper has gone deep into the subject of why politicians attract crazed civilian gunslingers, and why friends and family feel it is up to them to investigate collateral deaths such as Jim’s.
Averie Miller is one such family member who cannot rest until she gets the answers her heart demands: who killed an innocent bystander as well as the senator’s bodyguard Jim Miller, and Whiler, his trained gun-sniffing dog?
Another Minnie Cooper whodunnit for your collection, available at a bookstore near you.
