Hi everyone – I’m sharing another snippet of my latest book “In the Shadows of a Lie” was released last month. The story is mainly set in New Zealand and currently on special for 99c. Enjoy ♥♥
This week’s hook …
by Iris Blobel
“I came by bus.”
That he didn’t expect. “The bus stop is about five to six kilometres down the road.”
“The driver was kind enough to let me hop off at the intersection.”
Dylan chuckled. “That must’ve been Jack.”
She stared at him, evidently not following his thoughts.
He scratched the back of his head. “So, let me do the host thingy. Teddy said, you’ll be the only guest until Monday, so you’ll have the house to yourself until Sunday. I’ll fix you breakfast, and if you like I can offer dinner as well, but that’d be at my place, which is another kilometre down the road.”
She looked around the kitchen, probably not was she expected. Even though Teddy and Mae didn’t charge much for a night, Dylan assumed that a guest would at least expect someone to be around.
“Let me show you to your room.” He turned to walk down the hall and spotted a backpack. “Yours?”
She nodded, and he picked it up.
The discovery of her mother’s diaries unravels a secret which sends Lani on a journey to New Zealand …
She lost her mother in an accident. Now, Lani Dekker is determined to meet the man who, according to her mother’s diaries, is her father. He’s not what she expected, a bit on the extravagant side, but she soon warms up to him, thanks no less to Dylan, her father’s neighbour. Despite her attraction to Dylan, she can’t figure out whether he’s a friend or foe.
Dylan Harper is merely going through the daily motions after his wife died in a ski crash. That is, until his life is turned upside down by the arrival of his neighbour’s daughter. Their attraction is instant, even more so when they wake up in the same bed after an earthquake. However, it’s her accusation that his interest in her involves her father’s money rather than their mutual magnetism that derails their newfound bond.
Will finding the truth about her parents be a chance for Lani and Dylan to overcome their differences?
