A KILLER BOOK DESCRIPTION

SuperiorSecrets_BookCov2

SUPERIOR SECRETS is almost ready! As you can see, we have a cover!

As we put the finishing touches together, I am reminded again of the need for a killer book description to lure in new readers.  Here’s what we have for Superior Secrets:

It’s wintertime on the North Shore and the snow is thick on the ground. Jonah Borden, the coffee-guzzling, wisecracking, gourmet-cooking man of the cloth, is about to tie the knot with his sweetheart, Leyla Bennett. But before they do, Leyla joins a cult, ostensibly in order to complete an investigative report. However, Borden is worried: there are signs that her commitment to the new religion may have become more serious.

When Borden confronts the cult leader, he is rebuffed. Meanwhile, mysterious hunting accidents begin happening around the town of Grand Lake. Assisted by his friends, Jonah tries to find a way to get Leyla out. What he uncovers is bigger than any of them had guessed. Now, he’s in a race to save his own life, and those of his friends, before a powerful enemy snuffs them out.

Superior Secrets is set amidst the wild beauty of Lake Superior. Featuring a cast of unique, memorable characters, this is part of the Lake Superior Mystery series, but none of the books have to be read in order.

I could use a little help here. I’m wondering if there are any of you, who have not read any of previous Lake Superior Mysteries, who could evaluate this description for me? If you haven’t read the books, does this description get your attention? Does it tell you enough? Does it say too much?  I deeply appreciate your feedback!

If you have read any of the previous books, I welcome your feedback too, but try to be objective: would this description interest you if you knew nothing about the series?

Thanks so much!
