Must Love Jaws
"I need to choose a better name for the shark..."
Dr. Bernard Hooper is a marine biologist. Matt Lee is a hobbyist fisherman who owns a bait n' tackle shop.
The two know each other--and have a past history together--but can't stand each other.
But then a faithful fishing trip introduces them to a new, underwater friend...
The story is set in Sauble Beach, a Canadian beach overlooking great Lake Huron.
Must Love Jaws is for the Summer Novel Festival (July 01 - August 16) and 2015's A Game By Its Cover (June 20 - August 16), a game jam where you are meant to create a game based on another's fake cover art (or, in my case, a fake trailer)...
Must Love Jaws is based off this trailer.
"Steven Spielberg’s classic horror becomes a family movie similar to Free Willy. The title is a parody of the romantic comedy Must Love Dogs."
