#BookTour “Homecoming Chaos” by D.W. Brooks @lifethereboot @SDBookTours

Can Jamie survive the chaos and protect her family’s business, deal with her family, and handle the dance with the hot detective without managing to get herself killed?

Homecoming Chaos
A Model MD Novel
by D.W. Brooks
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Contemporary Fiction

A dead body in the parking lot of her family’s business, a killer on the loose, and a handsome detective asking a lot of questions…

Jamie Scott’s life fell apart four years ago when she broke off her engagement, turned down a dream job, and went overseas to run away from her life. Now she’s back, but the reunion is not without problems. She arrives home just in time to attend the soiree her mother planned, but she’s not prepared for what she finds—a dead employee in the parking lot.

Detective Nick Marshall is assigned to the murder case at the forensics lab owned by Jamie’s family. He meets the headstrong Jamie, but he has a job to do. And his attraction to her… well, he’s a professional.

Jamie knows the stakes are high. She has to face the past and save her parents’ business while dealing with her family drama and an uncertain future. She also has to deal with Nick, who wants her out of the way of his investigation. But fate keeps throwing them in one another’s paths… and into chaos that they both want to avoid, but neither can seem to escape.

#MFRWHooks “Let’s do this.” #amreading #bookstoread #Soccer #bookseries

Hi everyone –
I’m continuing with another teaser from Book 3 in the Australian Sports Romance Series – Entangled Moments.
Enjoy ♥♥

This week’s Hook …

“You will be. Trust me, I’ll think of something to muck up your wedding day, too.”

Oliver snorted, but didn’t reply. They looked up when a gentle knock at the door interrupted their conversation and the minister peeked in. “Ready?”

The guys high-fived each other. “Let’s do this,” Tyson said, with a determination that brought another smile to Markus’ face.

They followed the minister into the church and stood in a line in front of the altar. The hushed voices stopped more or less instantly.

The Church of St John’s was packed to the last seat. Markus saw a few familiar faces, like his family, Ty and Oliver’s families, Ty’s football mates and friends, and of course Katie’s mum, family, and friends. He wrung his hands and, just to be a hundred percent certain, he searched his pocket for the rings again, juggling the box at the first note of the loud organ. Everyone in church stilled, and the three friends turned to face the entrance watching the bride walk down the aisle with her father.

 

Blurb:

Markus and Sarah’s lives couldn’t be more different…

After three years away as a goalkeeper for an English soccer club, Markus DeLeon is happy to be back in Melbourne, back with his family and friends, including Sarah. He has known her since childhood, and has often provided her with a safe place from the teasing of other children and the troubles of a broken home. Yet, events after attending their friends’ wedding set off a shift in their relationship and questions, which neither Markus nor Sarah know how to approach.

Sarah Winter caught her boyfriend cheating on her, and not for the first time Markus offers her a much-needed shoulder to cry on. This time, however, an attraction between them intensifies, ending in a passionate afternoon, and Markus doesn’t know how to handle this new side of their friendship and flees to the coast. Sarah, unsure as well about the recent events, is surprised by his sudden departure, but is soon sidetracked by misunderstandings and a family emergency.

But sometimes risking what you have means you might lose everything…

Today’s Snippet

Though the connection was iffy, with static breaking their words Jonah got the gist of the message.

“I’ve dispatched a team. They should reach you in about fifteen minutes. Will you both be okay?”

“Could you please send Jack?” Maddie asked as she rose back to her feet again. “I’m sure he can get us out of here.”

After a brief pause, the voice responded, “No Jack here, Maddie. Are you certain he’s part of our team?”

Jonah couldn’t contain his laughter at her movie reference again, and Maddie shook her head with some amusement as well.

“Never mind.” Her words carrying a hint of resignation, yet a soft smile lingered on her lips.

“Alright, team, I’m signing off. But I’ll keep you updated as soon as I have any information. Stay calm, don’t panic, and we’ll have you out of there soon.”

In an unexpected encounter, the lives of Jonah, a rescue diver from New Zealand, and Maddie, a spirited local, collide, forever altering their future.

This week’s Hook …

“Wouldn’t say,” he said with a lift of his shoulder in a quick shrug.

“What do you mean he wouldn’t say?” Tyson shot him a glare. “You have the rings, right?”

Markus nodded.

He’d known Tyson and Oliver for most of his life, since before school. They’d played footy each Saturday and later, during their teenage years, hung out together afterwards as well. Yet, after watching a game of soccer, Markus changed sports. Oliver had switched to baseball a year later, after spending a few months in the States. The youngest of the trio, however, had stayed with football and was one of the most regarded players in the Australian Football League. Despite going their different ways in sports, their friendship had remained as strong as the early years and nowadays they caught up as often as possible to watch a game of cricket or motor racing.

Oliver rushed into the room. “Sorry for that.”

“You will be. Trust me, I’ll think of something to muck up your wedding day, too.”

A smile spread across her flushed face. They both approached the doors, attempting to grip them from opposite sides.

“Okay,” he said. “One, two, three.”

Both put some effort into pulling the doors apart, but to no avail. Placing his hands on his knees, he drew a few breaths to steady himself as he watched Maddie slide down the wall into a seated position.

“How are you coping?”

She nodded. “Never been big on exercises.”

Letting out a soft laugh, he turned to the panel. “Mate, you’re still there?”

“Wouldn’t dare to leave you.”

“No luck with the doors, I’m afraid.”

This week’s Hook …

He sat as he watched Tyson pacing up and down the small room. He’d known his friend for over twenty years, and Ty’s eye twitch was enough proof that he was nervous. Markus couldn’t remember seeing Ty so tense in…well, ever. Not even before any of his important football games. Then again, it wasn’t every day that one married a gorgeous girl. And despite Katie’s best efforts to keep it a low-key event, the media was already present outside the church.

Grabbing his phone, Markus flicked through a few names and dialled Oliver’s number. “Where are you?” he asked when his friend answered the call.

“Give me five minutes.”

Markus raised his brows. “The groom’s having a hard time settling his nerves.”

Oliver let out a bark of laughter. “It’s his wedding day. Yeah, I’d be a little restless too. Do you have the rings? Katie will kill you, if you don’t.”

Although sure he did, panic rose within Markus as he rummaged through his pockets to retrieve the small box. “Yes, all good.”

“Okay,” Oliver replied. “See you in five.”

He hung up and gave Tyson, who was still pacing, a reassuring smile.

“Where the hell is he?”
