Alright guys, here's a short synopsis for my currently-being-written Romance novel. Let me know what you think!

 

A New York writer who has just escaped an abusive relationship finds herself on a mysterious island that doesn’t seem to follow normal societal rules. She quickly acclimates herself to Kahikina’s population of misfits and outcasts, but feels drawn to a man who knows more than he lets on. When a friend discovers her manuscript back home and publishes it, she is thrust into fame and adoration. Will she cast away her newfound fame for love on the island?

Being a hook, you probably want to keep it short, just showing us who the MC is what, what the stakes are. 

Who the MC is - A writer escaping an abusive relationship. The choice she faces - keeping her new relationship vs going home to accept her new fame. Here you might want to show us why it can only be one or the other, why can't she be with this guy and have her fame at the same time.

 

One example - A writer escaping an abusive relationship must chose between new found love on a mysterious island and sudden fame when her book rockets into the best seller list (just an example to show what I mean)

Definitely keep the hook down to two sentences that explain the basics of the character, what he or she wants, what's in his or her way, and what they must do to obtain what they want.

Two sentences, short and sweet.
