Today’s snippet starts where we left off last week, Sadie’s reason for travelling to Germany …

ENJOY ♥

Today’s Snippet

“Call me Matt.” He smiles and then lifts his right shoulder in a shrug. “Mum’s spent the last eight weeks in Germany. She’s very ill, so I’m going there to help her with her travels home.” He takes another sip of his coffee and I can’t stop thinking he’s trying hard to avoid eye contact.

“I had a few bad weeks at work so I’m heading over early,” he explains.

Still no eye contact. This is too deep for me and I feel awkward. Four hours is by far not enough to talk emotional stuff already.

He leans back and his handsome smile is back. “Sorry about that.”

I shrug. “It’s okay. Wanna talk about it?” I ask, remembering mum’s words about good manners, but deep down inside I hope he doesn’t.

Matt shakes his head. “Na, not really. After all, I wouldn’t like to ruin your holiday. Tell me about your grandma’s diary.”

There’s a bit of excitement at the thought of the diary. “I found it amongst my mother’s belonging. I never knew my grandma. I have some vague memories of talking to her on the phone, but in those days, it cost half a car to call someone in Germany. She died when I was ten. It was a big funeral back then and a bit overwhelming meeting everyone in Mum’s family.”

Today’s ‘hook’ is from book 4 in the Alinta Bay series, which is set along the Great Ocean Road in Australia.

This week’s hook …

TOUCH ME

by Iris Blobel

Shaking his head, he knew straight away it was a hit and run incident, with the driver leaving without moving the animal. He slowed and parked in front of it.

“I’ll be a couple of minutes,” he explained, looking at Lexie via the mirror.

With a slow nod, she asked, “Is it dead?”

He swivelled in his seat to face her. “Put it this way. I hope it is, otherwise I might have to put it down.”

The expression on her face told him that she wasn’t fond of the idea either. Neither was he. In one quick movement, he turned, opened the door, and got out. It took him only a few steps to get to the kangaroo. The animal was dead all right, but when he stood right next to it, he looked right into his next problem.

A little joey was moving inside the pouch, still alive.

Jesse blew out a long breath as he rubbed his hands over his face. It wasn’t the first time that he’d found a dead kangaroo with the joey still alive, but that didn’t make it any easier. He knelt and inspected both mama and child. The little joey was looking good considering the situation. With a sense of frustration and sadness, he stood and returned to the car where he opened the door on Zoe’s side.

“I was hoping Zoe would be able to help me.”

BLURB

She loves the feel of his skin beneath her hands …

Lexie Marshall packs up and moves 3,000 km east with her daughter Zoe, to forget and move on. Now, all that matters is her daughter and her new job. She tries hard to stay focussed, but the sexy and extremely kind park ranger, Jesse, is not making it easy. And when her husband shows up in the small coastal town creating chaos, all she can do is hang on and trust her new friends.

After his last girlfriend walked out on him, Jesse Parker is doing just fine on his own. Until his accidental meeting with single mother Lexie, when he rescues her and her daughter from getting lost in the forest. But when her past catches up with her, he is right in the middle of it all and it might ruin his career.

Will returning to her old life be the only chance to save his career?

Today’s Snippet

“So, Sadie. What makes you go to Frankfurt?”

The waitress comes with my ice tea and I take a sip first before I reply nonchalantly, “Grandma’s diary.”

Before I realise what I’ve said, I look up and see his mouth has curled in a smile.

A small sigh escapes me as I appreciate that I can’t leave him hanging there without any further details.

“My Mum died a few weeks ago.”

I pause as I watch the expression on his face change, but also to let the brief moment of grief wash over me.

“Anyway, I found grandma’s old diary and while I was talking to my uncle after the funeral, he invited me over. Mainly to catch up with family, but also to find out about my grandparents. About mum’s childhood and such.”

I’m getting carried as usual when I talk about my mum away, so I stop.

“Sorry about your mum,” he replies quietly.

I nod and thank him, unable to say anything else. Tears are welling up and as Mathias has already seen the worst part of me, I don’t really want him to experience a sobbing me as well.

Letting out a long breath, I straighten up and ask, “What about you, Mathias? Why Frankfurt?”

Title: Curious Obsession
Author: Elora Nicole Ramirez
Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Curious Obsession:

One moment Juniper Reese existed, and the next she vanished into thin air.

This is how it feels for Lavender, her twin, when she receives the call that Juniper didn’t show up to her job one morning. Still adjusting to Juniper’s cross-country move to run from the ghosts of their mother’s death, Lavender knows something is wrong — but she also knows her sister is still alive.

As she follows Juniper’s footsteps in an unfamiliar town, she begins to uncover a plot that seems to suggest her sister was being stalked before her disappearance. Now it’s on her to find Juniper before time runs out and convince those around her that her disappearance wasn’t an attempt to “get away.”

What she doesn’t know is that she’s being watched by someone who just realized perfection came twice. He begins to hone in on Lavender, his attention never satisfied until he can have them both for himself.

Will Lavender be able to find her sister before time runs out?

Or will she be the next target in an obsession gone wrong?

About the Author:

Elora Ramirez has always been a word girl.

It started when she was four, when she taught herself how to read and write as a way to entertain herself while her grandmother kicked and danced in aerobics class. She cut her teeth on books from Dr. Seuss and writing anywhere she could find the space — including her Fischer Price kitchenette, the pages of picture books, and Highlights Magazines.

She’s matured a bit since then, now choosing to write in the margins of her books and on the mirrors of her bathroom ideas and thoughts surrounding story and what makes us human. By day she leads a team at a tech company, waking up before the sun rises to get in her love for words before stepping into her role of helping others see the plot line of their own story under development.

Intuition and beauty get her through the day, as well as her chef-husband and their little lion son. Curious Obsession is her fourth novel.

Happy Sunday
I’ve returned to an old manuscript which I started years and years ago.
The story is about Sadie who’s found her mother’s diary, which will eventually take her on a journey to Germany.
… she’s just landed in Singapore …

ENJOY ♥

Today’s Snippet

And again, I notice how he takes my hand and like an old couple we wander past tired and excited faces. Past countless of little shops and eateries. Until we finally settle on a little café.

The ice tea is soothing as it makes its way down my throat. I’m enjoying the cold drink more than I would’ve thought. All I did during the last flight was drink water, but this… this is… this has taste to it. I order another one.

“Didn’t you get anything to drink during the flight?”

Nodding, I reply. “I did, but I can’t stand plain water.”

Mathias takes a sip of his coffee and then looks at me. It’s the look I’ve got used to over the last, wow, I’ve known him for about four hours now. Quickest date ever. Anyway, he looks at me and I’m glad I’m sitting down, because otherwise, my legs would probably buckle underneath me.

“So Sadie. What makes you go to Frankfurt?”

The waitress comes with my ice tea and I take a sip first before I nonchalantly reply, “Grandma’s diary.”

This week’s hook …

TOUCH ME

by Iris Blobel

And then there was the mother, who despite her shortness of breath and the obvious lack of fitness looked still incredible and that did something to him, which he wasn’t sure how to handle or even interpret.

The mother. He didn’t even know her name.

Holding out his hand, he said, “Jesse Parker. Nice meeting you.”

She looked up at him, and a slow smile spread across her face, but she ignored his hand. “Nice meeting you, too. More than nice, if I may say so. I’m Lexie and this is my daughter Zoe.”

Sliding his hand into his pants pocket, he turned to look at Zoe and said with a wink, “I’m not lecturing you, but please promise me not making a habit out of stopping strange cars.”

The girl nodded enthusiastically. “I promise.”

“Okay. Let’s get this roadkill off the road and then get you back to your car.” Jesse helped Lexie and her daughter into the car and then slid behind the steering wheel. While he started the engine, he considered starting a conversation, but decided against it. Nothing personal, but it’d been a busy day already, and he was too tired to come up with anything to say. They drove quietly along the forest road. It didn’t take him long until he located the dead kangaroo farther up the path. Shaking his head, he knew straight away it was a hit and run incident, with the driver leaving without moving the animal. He slowed and parked in front of it.
