Friday Book Blurb #7

                                         
Sioux's rules or visit her at:http://siouxspage.blogspot.com

  • A photo is posted every Friday. The picture is intended to be the front cover of a book.
  • Your mission:  to write a blurb for the book, in 150 words or less (not including the title). Make it compelling. Make it enticing. Make it so engaging, the reader cannot resist buying it and reading it.
  • Post the blurb on your blog, and then connect your post to this one, via Mr. Linky. 
  • Check out the other blurbs. It's fun to see what direction other people went when it came to the same photo.





                                    Running to Win

“Jolly” Bracken had run all her life, hitting the streets with her jogger dad when she was ten. She was on the high school cross country team and ran track in college. After three kids and a broken marriage, could she play basketball in middle age?

The Delighted Divorce Dames needed new blood. Chipper Anderson knew just who could play with the team. She just had to convince Jolly to come on board. She had stamina and skill, could learn rules.

So one Tuesday in November, Chipper took Jolly to the sports store and bought her a pair of high tops. All was going well until a retired NBA played moved next door to Jolly and had some moves of his own. Would he score with their new high pointer? Distract her from team’s needs? Cause her to sink or air ball?


The real game was on!

This is great too! (Just read Sioux's) and well, I want to read more! As I said at Sioux's blog - it's really fascinating the different takes on the same picture, isn't it?

Is it wrong of me to hope that Jolly continues to run?

Sioux said...

I hope Jolly ends up scoring by running again AND getting on the team AND with the basketball player who's moved into the neighborhood (if he's worthy of the involvement). Claudia, you made this into a romance (or some good chick lit?). Bravo! Thanks for taking part...

Chipper and the retired NBA neighbor need to meet for a beer and work out a custody agreement for Jolly. No reason she can't to it all.

I smell a rom-com in that blurb, so you know I love it. Great blurb!
