Again, Ms. Blobel shares her talent of writing a suspenseful, romantic, emotional and terrific book. I was captured at the first page and couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next.
This book also brings us the story of Zach, Mia’s friend, and his emotional decisions he must make for happiness.
Bravo to Ms. Blobel on another book that will rest up with my favorites!
“How did this conversation go so out of control?” she asked.
She turned and looked around, but he wasn’t quite sure why. Following her gaze, he spotted Mia on the sports oval, reminding him to catch up with her.
Natasha’s sudden words startled him. “Hey there. I’m Miss Peterson. Nice meeting you. You must be Sophie’s neighbour, who’s looking after Mia this weekend.”
He could’ve kissed her then and there. There was no doubt about it. Eyeing her hand that she held towards him, he finally took it.
“Nice meeting you, too, Miss Peterson.”
“My apologies, but I think I’m needed over at the… well, somewhere.”
Without any more words, she left him standing there, alone with his thoughts.
One kiss. One small kiss to taste those lips. That was all could think of. He watched the teacher walk away across the oval until she was approached by a group of students. In the middle of their conversation, she tilted her head slightly and looked at him, and he was sure he saw a small smile on her lips. He returned her smile and kept watching her until he remembered why he was here in the first place.
One small kiss.

4 stars – NEW BEGINNINGS is a very emotional read, one that is heartwarming as well as heart wrenching. It gives you hope in the act of human kindness and that good things do happen to good people. I highly recommend this book.
