Title: Condos and Corpses (Sapphire Beach Cozy Mystery Series Book 1)
Condos and Corpses is Book One in the Sapphire Beach Cozy Mystery Series.
A condo on the Florida Gulf Coast. A humanitarian worker with a passion for jewelry making. A murder next door.
Connie can think of no other option but to sell the beach front condo she recently inherited from her beloved aunt, but a murder in the apartment next door stalls her plans. As she tries to prove her friend and neighbor’s innocence, she contemplates keeping the condo and opening a jewelry shop in Sapphire Beach, where tourists abound, to showcase her handmade creations. But starting a business would mean walking away from an eleven-year career in humanitarian work, and her overseas contacts have become like family over the years. Will she find a way to combine her love for jewelry making with her passion for humanitarian work and solve the murder in the process?
If you enjoy cozy mysteries that keep you guessing, loveable characters, and sun-drenched Florida beaches, you’ll love the Sapphire Beach Cozy Mystery Series.

–Abigail’s Targeted Tip:
Does your blurb snowball in intensity? Look at each sentence separately, considering the topics covered. Reorganize or rework any that slow your momentum.
