Book Blurb Friday - 03/02/12

Lisa Ricard Claro of Writing in the Buff hosts BBF each week. The goal is to create a book jacket blurb of up to 150 words, using a photo as inspiration. You really should give it a try, and link up your finished post with Lisa.

A Dish Best Served Cold
by Ima B. Gettchu

Stacy Chesterfield was second-rate. From the Harrison Elementary School spelling bee to the Montgomery County Fair pie bakeoff, the best she could muster was the second place red ribbon.

In the thirty years since she graduated from Elmhurst High School, Stacy had been nursing a murderous rage against the one person who had taken what she wanted most.

With only two months until Elmhurst’s 30th reunion, Stacy set out to permanently settle the score.

Eloise Starkley-Taylor was perplexed when she received a Facebook friend request from mousy Stacy Chesterfield. The two women had had no contact since Senior year, when head cheerlearder Eloise had stolen Stacy’s boyfriend, David Taylor, and the couple reigned as Prom Queen and King.

Eloise hesitantly accepted Stacy’s luncheon invitation. The table was set for murder.


  1. I believe I always say this when I visit you, but Russell Finn is a cutie-pie!

    Love your blurb and would like to see how it all turns out. That's the problem with these things. We're always left hanging!

  2. This is great! I am wondering if one of the apples is poisoned like in Snow White or if the food will be poisoned at all?

    I really like how you entered in the Facebook part too.

    I'll buy your book, for sure.

  3. Ooh, watch out for mysterious Facebook friend requests!
    I would have to buy this book to find out what happens to the dreadful boyfriend-stealer.

  4. What a fun and unexpected horror story. Chilling last line!

  5. Sounds like a real book -- one of those cozies (except perhaps a little more revenge-oriented) and no one owns a bakery.


Thanks for stopping by. I love your comments...I get all warm inside just reading them!
