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!
Mia took a bite of her hot dog and followed his stare.
“Looking for something?”
Zach chuckled and turned to look at her. “Your English teacher. What’s her name again? Natasha—”
“Miss Peterson?” she asked hesitantly.
“That’s her.” He grinned. “She comes across more like a cute little kitten.”
Mia almost choked on her hot dog. Coughing, she grabbed her drink and took a sip. After she’d recovered from her surprise, she turned to look at him with a big frown.
A big grin spread over his face, but before they were able to say anything else, Mia’s friends had joined them at the table, giggling, and chatting about boys and movies. Instantly, Zach knew he was out of place now and left. Sometimes enough was too much.
He went back to the canteen for another cup of coffee and as much as he tried, he wasn’t able to find Natasha in the crowd.
Surprised at his own curiosity about her, he wondered what had attracted him to her. Had it been her looks? It’d definitely been her smile. And her eyes.
He shook the thought of her out of his mind and casually strolled back to Mia, trying his best to focus on her efforts today.
But Natasha’s image kept coming back to his mind.
Zach Taylor, an escort in Sydney, living in Hobart, enlists the help of Natasha Peterson when his teenage friend, Mia, runs away. He soon finds out that the ‘dragon’ is really more of a kitten. And although Natasha, Mia’s teacher, is attracted to him as well, she has her own problems to deal with, not to mention her initial reaction to Zach’s occupation.
Will Zach’s job keep him from a chance to be with Natasha?
Life is good for teenager Mia Levesque. But when Darren Schuster shows up in Hobart, she knows something is up once Sophie and Mark cut their weekend away short and rush home in the middle of the night. When Sophie won’t answer Mia’s questions, emotions run high, and Zach confirms Darren’s identity to Mia. Disappointed, angry, and feeling alone, Mia runs away.
Will life settle back into a routine for Mia once she finds out about the stranger in her life?
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.
