This meme is hosted by Lisa Ricard Claro at ‘Writing in the Buff’ J
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.

Meredith Evans visits the inner courtyard after work each day to savour the peace before returning to her apartment. It is a place of sanctuary from the busy world outside. She sees the same people every time, quietly going about their business.
One of them is a young girl who passes through the cloisters and always smiles at Meredith. One day, the smile is absent – the girl looks scared. The next day she does not appear. Meredith becomes concerned when a week passes without sight of her and decides to investigate.
She soon discovers that the Sanctuary is not all it seems and the business being conducted there is far from desirable. Dark forces abound and Meredith soon finds herself ensnared in affairs with which she is ill-equipped to cope. Is this place a sanctuary from the law? Is there anyone she can trust?
