Book Blurb

by - July 19, 2011

My cover copy for WHEN HARRIET CAME HOME has recently been done. Here it is:

After ten years of exile, Harriet Brown is back in town. Things have definitely changed, but so has she. Now the confident owner of a catering business, she’s no longer the shy, overweight girl everyone – including her hot teenage crush - used to ignore. In fact, she’s determined to make peace with Adam Blackstone for her part in exposing his father’s secret affairs and corrupt behavior as Mayor.

But Adam has changed as well. No longer a pampered, rich pin-up boy, he just wants to re-establish his family’s good name. He reluctantly agrees to a truce with Harriet, and is surprised by how changed she is. He doesn’t want to be drawn to her, but he can’t seem to resist her allure.

As Harriet struggles to come to terms with her past, her adolescent infatuation with Adam morphs into something more serious… Will she ever be accepted again? Or will ancient history ruin the chance of a future full of possibilities?

The cover copy is done by the Carina Press acquisitions team, and I’m assuming they go off the synopsis I wrote. Considering how I loathe writing synopses, I’m full of admiration for the person who did my blurb.
