Friday Book Blurb - Chill Winds


The lovely Lisa at Writing in the Buff hosts Book Blurb Friday. Each week Lisa posts a pretend book cover to fire our imaginations. Our task is to write the book blurb for the back cover in 150 words or less.

Chill Winds


Meredith had grown up dreaming of raising cattle on her parents’ farm and marrying the boy next door. After ten years in the city, she realises it is still her dream. Arriving back home in the early morning, she finds her parents and her brother gone. Tracks in the snow lead away from the farm, and then simply vanish.

Farms for miles around have been abandoned overnight and soon childhood friends, and enemies, arrive from across the country, having all quit their jobs to return to their family homes. Meredith brings them together, but when arguments erupt over radically conflicting childhood memories, Meredith must keep the group together if they are to find their families before the authorities jump to the wrong conclusions.

Someone or something has tied their disparate realities together but to what end? As a ferocious snowstorm engulfs them, Meredith must make an impossible choice between realities.

150 words exactly

We leave for a fortnight's holiday in Wales tomorrow morning and do not know yet whether we will have usable internet. I may or may not be blogging for the rest of the month!

  3. A real mystery going here...nice job....makes the reader wonder!

  4. Love the sci-fi element Dominic, and this is one I could really get into!

  5. This is great! Where did they all go to? How did everybody know to come home at the same time? How will Meredith lead the group ... lots of interesting questions that I would love to learn the answers too.

  6. I love how you sneaked the sci-fi element in. You didn't slap me with it, just a gentle tap that tells me I must read the book to find out what out-of-this world thing is causing such a stir. Meredith seems a good, sensible woman with the wherewithal to figure it out. I'd like to know how she works this out.

  7. Ooh full of intrigue and suspence.Excellent and creative as always :O)
