~~  Fresh Beginnings ~~
by Iris Blobel

Amazon – 4 stars
It follows the love story of Jared Fraser and Ivy Bennett. Fraser is heading off on holiday from Hobart in Australia to America for his first holiday overseas and he is quite a workaholic it seems so this is a big deal for him to do. On the way he meets Bennett who is hitchhiking after leaving her boyfriend. This book quickly gets emotional with Bennett’s storyline with her mother who she hasn’t seen in years and her ongoing feelings for Fraser. But Bennett isn’t the only one with issues. Fraser is secretly wrecked with guilt about his previous relationship. His former girlfriend was seriously injured in a car accident after a row over him not wanting to marry her and live with her instead. Personally I could understand where he was coming from. After all in this generation most people do live together and they are just as committed as married couples. But I still liked the former girlfriend. She seemed a nice person in many ways even if she was controlling and tried to pressure Fraser into marriage by guilt-tripping. It would have been so much better if they had just agreed they wanted different things and left each other but then that wouldn’t have added half as much drama to the story so kudos to the writer on that one. “

♥♦♥  BLURB ♥♦♥

Jared Fraser, a landscape business owner in Hobart, Australia, sets out for a holiday to the USA to travel along the Route 66 in a motorhome. Looking forward to his first holiday overseas, he’s excited as he prepares himself for the journey. But little could’ve prepared him for crossing paths with a beautiful hitchhiker.

Will he be able to put his past aside and grab onto happiness?

Ivy Bennett thought leaving her boyfriend would be the hard part. It doesn’t take long to figure out how wrong she was. As she struggles with making a new start in her life, the last person she expects to lead her to happiness is a laid-back Australian on vacation.

But she will have to say goodbye again? And not only to Jared.

♥♦♥  EXCERPT ♥♦♥

Ivy enjoyed being with Jared. During their drive towards the Grand Canyon he told her of his home and described as much of Tasmania as possible.
“I always imagined Australia to be hot with white beaches and beautiful water.”
“That’s up in the north in Queensland,” he explained. “We have spectacular beaches as well. Tasmania is a small island in the very south. The last step before the Antarctica, so to speak.”
“That sounds cold!”
He laughed. “It clearly isn’t Queensland.” Settling his gaze on her, he continued, “But it has beautiful beaches as well. And a wonderful marine life. And the mountains. We have some stunning mountains in Tassie.”
“Tassie?”
“Tasmania.”
“It sounds beautiful.”
He agreed. “Yes, it is. One of the best places on earth.”
Once they arrived at the National Park, they found a parking spot and walked towards the edge of the Canyon. She touched his arm to get his attention. Not that she needed to. His attentive nature drew her to him, and she couldn’t get enough of listening to him.
“I feel bad that you pay for everything,” she said in a low voice.
Jared waved his hand. “Nah. It’s only money and luckily the Australian dollar is—”
“Whether you can or can’t afford it, it doesn’t matter. I don’t like it.”
He stopped and turned towards her, causing heat inside her body. Her breath caught but she kept walking, yet, it took him only a few steps to catch up with her and, by way of placing his hand on her shoulder, to stop her.
“Wanna tell me why?”
Avoiding his stare, she lifted her shoulder in a casual shrug.
“A shrug is not really an answer, ya know that, right?”
Yes, she knew that. How could she tell him that she’d left Dylan because he’d spent all the money she’d worked so hard for? She didn’t want to be in the same situation, as in spending someone else’s hard-earned money. But deep inside she didn’t want to hurt Jared, either. She was enjoying her time with him so much, she wasn’t ready for it to end because of some silly pride.
Out of the corner of her eye, she spotted a little squirrel in the bushes and despite some guilt inside, it was a perfect distraction.
“Look!” she said louder than she’d intended. “A squirrel.”
With great relief, she noticed how her devious plan had worked. Jared quickly grabbed his camera and kneeled down to get the best shot possible of this little creature.
Kneeling next to him, she asked, “Don’t you have squirrels?”
Still trying to get that perfect photo of the little creature, he whispered, “Nope.”

#MFRWHooks “Echoes of the Past” #kindledeals #AmazonDeals #Romance #oneclick


Happy Wednesday everyone.
“Echoes of the Past” is still only 99c on Amazon so I thought I’d share a teaser today.
Enjoy ♥

Today’s Hook:

“It wasn’t the perfect upbringing,” he said suddenly.
She tugged a strand of hair behind her ear, trying hard not to let her emotions get the best of her.
With a shrug, he added, “But it is what it is, and I cannot change it.”
Not sure how to respond, she stayed quiet.
He placed his knife and fork on the plate as well and pushed it away. “I’ve been wondering for the last couple of days how life would’ve been if Mum and I hadn’t left. But I cannot complain. I received a good education, a great job, some good friends, and a neat little house outside London.” He looked up at her. “Life’s not always wrapped up in some fancy, colourful wrapping paper, but it’s still a gift worth treasuring.”

BLURB:

When Connor Walsh, a business lawyer in London, receives news that his estranged father is terminally ill, he returns to Fermosa Bay, a little coastal town in Australia. With the memories of his childhood years tucked away in the back of his mind, he finds his father and kindergarten friends rallying around to remind him of the past. But he’s unprepared for the growing attraction he feels for Emily, and it doesn’t take long for Connor to feel regret that his life could have been so much different.

Emily Bradshaw has waited for over twenty years to see Connor again. And although he can’t remember her, let alone their first kiss, her childhood crush is still in full swing. Eager to pick up where they left off as children, she’s determined to enjoy the short time he is in Fermosa Bay, accepting her heart will break when he returns to his life in London.

Will the echoes of the past lure him into staying in Fermosa Bay?

#MFRWHooks “she felt accepted for who she had been” #amreading #books #bookrecommendation


Happy Wednesday everyone.
I started sharing snippets from my very first book “Sweet Dreams, Miss England”. I hope you liked it. I moved a little further in the story with Beth travelling to Dublin to meet new friends.
ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

Siobhan and Erin had only become interested in Shane because of the few movies he had made. His music from the early 1990s was unfamiliar to them.
After the initial night when Beth had found the website and had read a few postings and threads as a guest, she’d found herself on the site often reading deep into the night, forgetting all around her and disregarding time. She was intrigued by the sensibleness of most of the members, and she was impressed by the responsible approach to most of the subjects pertaining to Shane, his movies, his past and even – to some extend – his private life, which included her. Beth appreciated the way her private life was respected – there was no room for private details or any information pertaining to the two girls. For the first time she felt accepted for who she had been, for whom she was, and what she had done.

BLURB:

Sometimes we meet people but not to share the rest of our lives with them, but merely for them to guide us onto a different path.
Set in London and Dublin we follow the life of Beth, a young mother of two who is married to Shane, an actor whose work requires him to be in Los Angeles. When Beth meets Daniel, a fun-loving, spontaneous man from Ireland, she realises how much joy and passion are missing from her marriage, and consequently her life. Beth is torn between her marriage to Shane and her love for this Irish charmer

#MFRWHooks “Dublin. Very Irish” #amreading #books #bookrecommendation


Happy Wednesday everyone.
I started sharing snippets from my very first book “Sweet Dreams, Miss England”. I hope you liked it. I moved a little further in the story with Beth travelling to Dublin to meet new friends.
ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

As much as she was uneasy about the meeting with the two women that night, she was glad she had come to Dublin. After finishing lunch, she still had some time left in the afternoon so she headed to Dublin Castle before going back to her hotel room. As soon as she was back in her room, she felt lonely again and the butterflies in her tummy returned.
THE TOWER was right in the heart of Dublin. It was a very old building, very much like one would imagine a place in Dublin. Very Irish. The big sign above the door had a shamrock on it and something that presumably was supposed to look like a tower. There was a big crowd on the streets on this beautiful spring evening. Beth tried her best to find her way to the meeting point with Siobhan and Erin.
Wait right next to the entrance of the bistro. The door is bright green.
She was so out of her depth and wanted to call them to cancel everything. She’d always been insecure in the presence of Shane’s fans, and right now, she felt silly that she had actually agreed to meet them.

#MFRWHooks “…she fell in love with the city…” #amreading #books #bookrecommendation


Happy Wednesday everyone.
I started sharing snippets from my very first book “Sweet Dreams, Miss England”. I hope you liked it. I moved a little further in the story with Beth travelling to Dublin to meet new friends.
ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

Beth loved Dublin. She loved the atmosphere, and she enjoyed everyone’s friendliness. She liked the little cafes, the shops, and the tourist attractions — she fell in love with the city within only a very few hours of arriving there.
Beth had wandered the streets first thing in the morning and bought a new outfit for the night. She noticed that wherever she went it was obvious to everyone that she wasn’t a local. The Irish slang was something she had to get used to, though, if she wanted to understand Siobhan and Erin that night. She loved the accent; it was a beautiful sing sang and another plus for the green Isle.
She strolled along the River Liffey, before going back into the main streets for some lunch. Beth was heading towards the Hard Rock Café in Fleet Street when she suddenly spotted a little place called ‘Elephant & Castle’. It had burgers as a specialty, and she decided she had to give it a go. When she stepped inside the bistro, a waiter came her way, led her to a nice table in the corner next to the window, and handed her the menu. She surprised herself for not feeling uncomfortable being on her own, but she was too distracted by watching the world go by and listening to other people talk without actually taking note of what they were saying.

Today’s Hook:

Beth’s hotel room was right in the middle of Dublin, near Grafton Street. She had decided to go for a central hotel so that everything would be close by and she wouldn’t have to venture too far when she went out. The hotel entrance was quite sophisticated and stylish, with a little water fountain on the right in an area where tea and coffee was served for those who were waiting for guests. It looked beautiful and relaxing – big, yet still warm and inviting.
Beth’s room was the opposite of the rather modern and stylish foyer. It reminded her more of a Laura Ashley design, romanticism in warm colours, the ageless style, and harmony of the floral look. It was as if she’d stepped back in time, but she was content especially with the view over Grafton Street. The room was equipped with tea, coffee, and snack facilities so Beth didn’t have to attempt wandering the streets on the first evening. She had arranged to meet Siobhan and Erin the next day and needed that time to get used to the idea that she was going to meet two of Shane’s fans. Even though they all had become quite acquainted over the last few months, she was very nervous.

Happy Wednesday everyone.
I hope you enjoyed last week’s teaser and you got a copy of “Their Bond through Jade” at the special price of only 99c.
Today’s hook is from my very first book “Sweet Dreams, Miss England”.
ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

As Beth woke up, she adjusted her eyes to the sunshine, which made itself comfortable in her bedroom. She looked outside and noticed the world was starting to breathe. Summer was close and the days were starting earlier, as well as getting warmer. She loved the sun crawling into her bedroom in the mornings and embracing her with its warm rays. Turning over, she looked at the letter which was now framed and on her bedside table. Live your sweet dreams it said. Beth smiled. Still deeply in her thoughts, she heard the phone ring. She glanced at the clock before she answered – it just had to be important at this time of the day.
“Happy Anniversary, Beth.”
Beth smiled when she heard her friend’s familiar voice. “Good morning. I can’t believe you remembered.”
“Of course I did. Who would have ever thought?”
“Yes, it’s strange how life sometimes works out.”
“We’re having dinner at my place tonight. Will you come as well?”
“I’ll be there. And thanks for remembering,” she replied just above a whisper and hung up.
Beth took the letter and held it close. It’d been a year already, she thought – and what a year it had been. She remembered each day so vividly as if it had only been yesterday.

~~  Their Bond Through Jade ~~
by Iris Blobel

♥♦♥  BLURB ♥♦♥

Pikorua, the Maori name for the symbol, is a twist that is said to symbolise the strength of the bond between two people. Mat is certain there is something between Tiffany and him.

When Tiffany Cahill opens the door to the police, memories flood her mind of the previous year and a relationship gone bad. Frightened, she calls her friend, Steve, for help, but instead a stranger answers the phone. Little does Tiffany know how much this New Zealander is going to impact her life, especially after she is assaulted only a few hours later.

Mat Apanui, the owner of a helicopter tour company in New Zealand, can’t ignore the worry in Tiffany’s voice when he answers Steve’s phone. Before he knows it, he is spending most of his business trip to Melbourne with her. Desperate to keep her safe after an attack, he invites her to stay with him in Queenstown, NZ.

With her safety at risk, how will Tiffany overcome her reservations and trust the sexy stranger enough to fly across the Tasman Sea?

♥♦♥  EXCERPT ♥♦♥

When Tiffany Cahill opened the door and laid eyes on the police officers, memories flooded back of the horrid day the year before when she’d been dragged to the police station. Everything inside her tensed as she checked the lever for the screen door to make sure it was locked. She rubbed her damp palms against her pants.
“Miss Cahill?” the male police officer asked, his dark brown eyes focussing on her.
Scared, she wasn’t able to find her voice, she bit her lip and simply nodded.
“Miss Tiffany Cahill?” the female, and younger, officer asked.
Tiffany nodded again. If she focussed on the officer’s flaming red hair beneath her cap, she wouldn’t have to meet her eyes. But she allowed herself a cautious peek at the officers’ faces.
Their expressions were unreadable, which was worrying.
“I’m Senior Constable Jones. This is Sergeant Harris.” The officer paused for a moment. “We would like to ask you a couple of questions in regard to Thomas Terrill.”
“Who?” Tiffany asked, hardly above a whisper. Her whole body shook, and she knew she had to sit down soon or she’d faint.
“Thomas Terrill,” Jones repeated. “He was up on charges last year for the possession of drugs. The file states you were involved—”
“There’s no way I’ll come with you.” Her voice was louder than intended, panic rising within her. “You can’t make me—”
“Miss Cahill,” Jones said with a calm voice.
“We’re not here to take you with us, but to ask you a few questions,” Sergeant Harris explained, pulling out a little notepad from his shirt pocket, opening it with an expert snap. “Is there anybody with you at home?”
Tiffany frowned as she shook her head. Anxiety raced through the pit of her stomach, and she had to resist the urge to step back to shut the door.
“Anybody you can call?”
His voice was soothing, and when Tiffany met his eyes through the screen door, she noticed something that conveyed trust. And there was a need inside her to trust him, yet every fibre in her told her to not open the door. Never again would she let the police take her to the station and treat her like a criminal.
She bit her lip again, desperate to figure out whom to call, when she replied, “My brother.”
Harris nodded. “Thomas Terrill was charged with possession of drugs last year. You are noted as a witness.” He paused, checked his little notepad, and continued, “He’s also known as Hudson Ford.”
Leaning her head against the door, Tiffany took a deep breath to steady herself.
“Are you okay, Miss Cahill?” Harris asked.
“Please open the door,” Jones requested.
Holding up her hand, Tiffany replied, “I haven’t seen him since last year. I have nothing to do with whatever trouble he’s in.” Her entire body trembled, anxiety rushing through her like a tidal wave. She took another two deep breaths before standing straight to meet Harris’ gaze.
He searched her eyes before he assented with a nod and held out a business card. “We need to talk to you. I can assure you you’re not in trouble, but we need your help.” He squeezed the card into the small gap of the doorframe. “This is my number. Please call in when you have somebody with you, and we can have a talk.”

#SnippetSunday “It felt like a dead language to me.” #Sundayblogshare #Romance

Thanks to everyone stopping by last week and a special thanks to those who left a comment. I really appreciate it.
I’m re-posting a story which I started a many years ago. It’s written in first POV, which has been a challenge to say the least. So, some of you may know the story already, but I’d appreciate constructive critique ☺

Enjoy ♥

After a while I just give up. The “human traffic” has stopped, but dinner (or is it lunch time?) is about to be served. I make an effort and re-read Grandma’s next diary entry. She must’ve had a bad day, because her handwriting wasn’t the best that day. I curse myself for not having listened to Mum better when she tried to teach me Fraktur, but in all fairness, how was I supposed to know that I’d need it one day. Back then, it felt like a dead language to me. Not language, but you know what I mean. Dead alphabet.
“I heard from Konrad again today. His letters are such a light in these miserable days nowadays. Me and the children stayed in the cellar most of the day because of the bomb attacks. He’s in Greece. I read the letter to the children as he described the scenery and the sea. The blue of the water must’ve taken his breath away. I wish I could be there with him. Still, I wish I could just BE with him. I miss him.”

Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

Happy Wednesday everyone. I’ve decided to move on to another book I’d like to share with you. It’s an older one, the second book in my Australian Sports Stars Series. “Let Me Love You” is Oliver’s story. ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

He’s trouble! They were the last words she’d wanted to hear, especially as she’d run into Oliver twice afterwards. She tried so hard to avoid him, no wonder he thought she was a bitch. And a challenge. Tamara let out a long, slow breath before she replied, “Yes, Erik warned me about you.”
His eyebrows shot up. “I’m a nice guy!” he reasoned.
Another smile tugged at her lips. “Yes, although according to my uncle, too nice at times.”
Oliver shook his head. “Wanna join me for a drink?” he asked, his voice husky.
It sent shivers down her spine. Yes! she thought, but heard herself say, “Thank you for the invite, but I’m honestly very tired. Everything in my life’s kind of new at the moment, and it’s draining to adjust.”
His eyes searched hers. “I knew you could be nice,” he said with a big smirk on his face. “Will you take a raincheck?”
Shaking her head, she said, “No thanks. I’d rather not.”
“Because of Erik?”
“That too.”
He stepped closer, and everything inside her tensed. As much as her body had enjoyed the previous five minutes, in the end the urge to step back won. She heaved a big sigh.
“You need to give me a chance,” he whispered.
“Who said I’m interested?”

BLURB:

Oliver Dempsey, pitcher for a Melbourne baseball club, loves the women, and they love him…
But he keeps them at an arm’s length, and when he meets Tamara, he’s unprepared for the attraction he feels for her. Told by his coach that she’s off limits, only draws him in more.

Tamara Amis moved to Melbourne to find some distance between her past and herself…
With the help of her uncle, the coach of a Melbourne baseball club, she quickly finds a job, and a place to live. Yet, one meeting with the handsome pitcher stirs unexpected emotions that threaten to overwhelm her.

It’s Oliver’s injury that brings them together, but as they find out about each other’s pasts, how can they be ready to share a future?
