Each week she posts a photo that could be the cover of a book. The aim is to:
‘Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.’
Here is this week’s book cover. My blurb follows.

November in Paris is not as romantic as April but Simon and Mary don’t care. They’re in love and this is their first holiday together. A single geranium blooms in the window box of their room and Mary carefully presses it between the pages of her diary.
Odd noises in the night don’t bother them – a police surveillance unit is across the road. They couldn’t be safer.
When a masked man wakes them up in the early hours they discover that the unit is a cover for a far deadlier organisation and one that has been keeping them under observation. Why does the intruder demand to know what has happened to the bloom? What is the secret of the window box? Simon and Mary find themselves enmeshed in a mystery and with no-one to turn to for help, they must find answers quickly if they are to escape.
