Cover Blurb for Spirit

Valerian (Val) Howell had no intention of using the Spirit skills she was born with, until she stood over one of her mother's major competitors at a murder scene.

Madame Gormadis had somehow hidden childhood and adult abuse from the world, in spite of being a very public figure. Camera teams almost always had a spirit sensitive with them for this very purpose, and the media would have spit her up and chewed her out if they'd found a hint of the abuse.

That death and its repercussions took a back seat to spirit assassins, irritatingly attractive co-workers and not-quite bodyguards. Maybe.

There are rules to the ethical use of Spirit; rules Val's mother fought to have recognized.

Aren't rules made to be broken?

This one uses the Hook/MC/Event structure. The inciting incident does take place before the story starts, but that format didn't seem as appropriate. I thought the combination of her first name and the pun made a good hook.

What do you think? Based on this, would you read the book (which is actually a novella)?

The original post on how to write a cover blurb is here. I'm going to post one a day till I run out, but not past next Monday. I have something else planned for next week.
