Broken Moon

After three years of investigating extraterrestrial sightings, Leo Solstice thought he’d heard everything.
Then he met Carina Taurus.


“Darkness can create illusions, Mrs. Taurus. The explanations are usually simple. Perhaps the shadow of a bird or the outline of a tree.”

“I know what I saw, Agent Solstice.”

“Even if serpentine aliens did come out of cracks in the moon, it would be impossible to view them from earth.”

“They must be enormous.”

“And where are they now?”

“It’s daytime, Agent Solstice. Wait until nightfall.”


It might have been another report in another file; the delusions of an isolated young woman with an overactive imagination.

Until rain washed out the only access road.

A handsome agent. A lonely widow. A night in a remote farmhouse.

Is it a recipe for romance? Or a full serving of terror?


Book Blurb Friday is hosted by Lisa Ricard Claro, who posts a weekly photo and challenges us to “write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.” That’s quite a challenge, but it’s a lot of fun as well.

This week’s blurb has 138 words.
