Back of the Book Blurb #8 Challenge

In Back-of-the-Book Blurb Friday #8 from Sioux's Page,Sioux offers this challenge.
She posts a picture and you need to imagine it as a graphic for a book. You choose the genre and book title, and then write a blurb that might appear on the back of the book.

·                The blurb should be 150 words or less (not including the title).
·                The genre is wide-open.
·                Each blogger should include their blurb on their own blog, and link back to this post.
·                Have fun with it. Go to the other posts and comment on the other blurbs. 
·                You can do fancy techy things with the photo.

(Join in if you dare...! It sounds like fun! I think this would be a lot of fun to do with students especially since they would be expected to write 150 words or less!)

The Wedding

Bob and Jan had planned every little detail of their wedding together for the past 2 years and the more they did, the more excited they became. They had just bought this house a month ago because it had the perfect garden for the wedding. Finally, the day arrived and all the guests were milling around the garden waiting for the wedding to start. But no one knew that in the front of the house, the bridge and groom were being held by gunpoint. Three masked men had grabbed them before anyone noticed. Bob and Jan were told to stand facing the brick wall while another masked guy went in the house. Then he came running in a panic telling the others that  “it” wasn’t there. Bob and Jan looked at each other. What wasn’t there? What were they looking for? How could their wedding be ruined like this! (149 words)

Wow, Pat. You took the story into a direction I had not even thought of. Your blurb makes me wonder what "it" is.

Bravo! (And thanks for playing.)

For a minute there, I was afraid that they'd bought a house without a gate in the garden wall! Looks like that would be the least of their worries.

This is great... I love your take on that they were held at gunpoint (versus me thinking they did something wrong) - they were wronged! I want to read more and want to know what "it" is!
