3D-Little Beginnings“That’s him,” Olivia whispered. “I haven’t caught up to him, yet, but I still believe he’s got a solid reason.”
And suddenly, Jeri was very much interested in that reason. “Honey, I’ve got to go. I’ll see you tomorrow.”
Gone was the smile on her face. The smile he’d been responsible for putting there.
Mr. Sex-on-legs could stick his magic wand up his backside. 

 Blurb:
A blind date that doesn’t happen might lead to love.
After her divorce, Jeri Belmont moved to Hobart and now runs a successful art gallery. When her niece sets her up with a neighbour, Jeri expects a blind date like all the others. But she never expected her date wouldn’t even sow up because of
her age. Despite feeling unjustly judged, when she unexpectedly runs into him
again, she finds it hard to ignore Ely’s charm.
Ely Lennox knows he shouldn’t have skipped the blind date because of the lady’s
age. After all, it had only been a date, not a lifetime commitment. When his carpentry business takes him right to the woman he bailed out on, his guilt
turns into regret when he finds out she’s everything a man could hope for. How
can he convince Jeri he made a big mistake?
Will she forgive him? Or is she hiding behind something else?

 

Little Beginnings by Iris Blobel is a wonderful love story about a 38 year old woman who learns to trust a man again, and who comes to realise that there is no obstacle two people in love can’t overcome. I also really enjoyed the secondary characters who were a memorable addition to the story, and I loved the humourous dialogue, the story’s emotional depth, and the engaging plot. This is a character driven story which I loved from beginning to end and I’m sure you will too!

3D-Little BeginningsLifting her arms as if to scream, Jeri smiled instead, not sure why. And not sure why this guy was affecting her so much. But she liked him. A lot. Looking around, she noticed that, even though he’d stuck to her requests, he had added a few little
extras. Cringing, she stepped closer to inspect what he’d created. Looking closer, though, she saw he’d used a couple of files, probably for measurement—and hey, that was actually a nifty little addition.
She smiled and said to herself, “Mr. Ely. I like your magic wand.”
Her phone buzzed and dragged her back from her daydream. It was Olivia.
“Honey, I’m having a good mood moment here, so if you’re calling me about the
blind date—”
“Calling about the exhibition on Sunday,” Olivia interrupted. “I was wondering
with you having the office re-done whether you’d need help earlier. I can spare a few hours tomorrow.”
“That’d be much appreciated, although it seems the shelf-maker isn’t as messy as
I thought.”
“Shame you didn’t tell me about your shelving before. My neighbour next door is
a carpenter. Ely’s always got brilliant ideas and is an excellent carpenter.”
Jeri clung to the phone as if it were a lifeline. As her eyes swept across the plastic
cover in the room, she felt a lump in her throat and an ache in her heart. She
remembered his name clearly: Ely. It was an uncommon name, and she was sure there weren’t two Elys working as carpenters in Hobart.
What would the odds be on that?
“Your neighbour from last night?”

Snippet Sunday – INNOCENT TEARS – 12/06/2016 #romance #reading #bookpromo

INNOCENT TEARS has been re-released.
It has enjoyed another full edit and an awesome new cover.
Here’s another little snippet.
THANK YOU
~~~
Advice is what we ask for when we already 
know the answer, but wish we didn’t.”
 

The sun was on its best behaviour and slipped from behind a cloud, giving warmth to the autumn day. Emma and Nadine had walked over to a nearby park, which had a small playground. The apprehension on Nadine’s face was forgotten right away as she enthusiastically climbed the slide and mingled with a few other children.
They stayed for a while, and when Emma stood and came closer, her little friend asked, “Can we stay a bit longer here?”
Instantly, guilt pressed down on Emma’s shoulders. Taking Nadine to the  playground seemed a reasonable idea at the time, but now as she looked into those despondent green eyes as it was time to return to the hotel, she wasn’t all that sure anymore. “I’m sorry, honey, but it’s time to go.”
Nadine’s face reflected the obvious disappointment. “Okay, then.”
She picked up her bag from the park bench and then looked at Emma. “Do you know my dad?”
“No, honey, I don’t. I saw him yesterday when he came to see your grandma and grandpa. But that’s it.” And boy, oh, boy was he a treat for the eyes!
With her voice sounding wary, Nadine asked, “Do you think he’ll like me?”

Today’s hook
 

ELY LENNOX GRABBED his tool belt and slid behind the wheel of his ute. Still struggling with the guilt of not showing up to the blind date the previous evening—not to mention his lack of sleep last night—his mood was at an all-time low. He’d run into Olivia’s mum, Georgia, at the local shop the day before. She’d 3D-Little Beginningsbeen on the phone with Olivia, and not having a pleasant conversation. Cheeks red from anger, she’d told Ely that her daughter was setting up Georgia’s cousin with a blind date. He’d obviously been all ears by then, figuring out that he was the blind date.
“So, what’s wrong with that?” he asked, his curiosity spiked.
She’d let out a long breath. “There’s nothing wrong with that.” Georgia lifted a shoulder in a shrug. “Jeri’s turning forty soon. She needs to meet someone solid and mature. Not one of Olivia’s immature friends.”

Just like now as she stood in front of her, quite possibly trying to figure out what the phone call had been all about. 
“What on earth happened?”
“Don’t give me this attitude, honey. Your super boy didn’t show up that’s what happened.”
Olivia’s eyebrows shot up. “Excuse me?”
“You heard me.” Jeri walked past her niece. “Your sex-on-legs lover boy hid like a frightened
turtle.”
Olivia’s cackle didn’t go unnoticed, and Jeri turned to her, anger rising.
“Honey, this is not funny,” she said, with as much calm as she could summon.

“Having a blind date with a guy who halfway through dinner goes to the toilet without returning because his pills played havoc with his heart might be funny. Or being asked for a 10,000 dollar loan on the very first date might also be considered funny.”
Jeri took a deep breath. “But I can’t see the funny side in sitting in a busy
restaurant, not to mention one of the best in town, waiting for your friend’s
neighbour who never turns up. Do the words
trust me ring a bell?”
