Book Blurb Friday #8

It’s Book Blurb Friday #8. Using the photo, write a book blurb jacket under 150 words. Hosted by Lisa Ricard Claro—head to her blog for BBF directions. This photo was taken by Sioux Roslawski.

My attempt at 93 words:

Who Killed Snob?

All this fuss embarrassed Obermoeller when the community erected a statue in honor of her unending service devoted to helping animals.

“How dare you call me a slut.”
“Well just look at yourself.”
“It’s because I have a big heart, not because I’m ready to show my breast.”

The conversation turned heated when James Snob couldn’t keep his mouth shut. Would Obermoeller remain calm? Or would the arm of the statue prove evidence when Snob found himself bludgeoned to death? Could Obermoeller prove her innocence or did the community now see another side?


  1. heheh I love it. Anybody who dares call Obermoeller slut had better watch it!

    Hey Lynn, I got the package. THANK YOU!! I love the old photos in the book, I'm going to read it this weekend! and the stamps are just deeeelicious!!! I think that calls for bringing out my Calvin and Hobbes comics too.

  2. Holy moly, you blindsided me. Love it! Girl you are amazing.

  3. Lynn, you are so funny! I love this! And I agree with Grace and Linda; names can hurt some people, lol.

    Have a wonderful Easter,

    Kathy M.

  4. I think Obermoeller did it! (But it sounds like Snob deserved it!) If so, will that be the end of her adventures?

  5. Good one. The arm of the statue meets the long arm of the law.

  6. The blog is very good!

  7. That conversation really had me giggling till it turned heated. Then I giggled even more....

  8. IMHO, James asked for it, although death is perhaps a bit much. I loved the dialogue and wish he'd been able to stick around a bit longer. LOL
