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 my daughter, Christina. Thanks Christy!
Carmelita Torres drops off her last fare of the night and flips the taxi light to “off.” All she wants now is an easy drive home to the Bronx and a nice cold one.
Assistant DA Jake Winter clutches the envelope containing important evidence. He thinks he’s succeeded in losing his pursuers but he’s wrong. Jake needs a way out, and fast. Carmelita’s cab is just the ticket.
Now as much a target as Jake, Carmelita is dragged into a nighttime chase as they run for their lives from agents of a drug cartel hell bent on retrieving Jake’s evidence at any cost. And it soon becomes apparent that people Jake thought he could trust are in the drug lord’s pocket. Jake may know the law, but it will be Carmelita’s knowledge of the city streets and back alleys that keep them alive. But for how long?

Here is our "book cover" for next week's Book Blurb Friday #43, provided by Kathy Matthews at Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy. I happened upon this photo on her blog just today and love the colors and presentation. Great photo Kathy!
