Happy Wednesday everyone.
Hope you’ll enjoy another “hook” from “Journey to her Dreams “. I moved forward a little, but it should be easy to follow.
Alex obviously understood. “But, you know what? It’s late, and I can catch up with Ben any time. Just give me ten minutes to say goodbye to him, and I’ll be ready to go.”
Guilt rushed through Hollie, and she glanced at Jeremy, reminding herself he was one of Davo’s friends, and that had to count for something.
Tugging a stray strand of hair behind her ear, she leaned closer to her friend, “Look, Alex, don’t worry. It’s okay. I have a feeling Jeremy will regret his offer as soon as he has to drive down Dad’s driveway. You enjoy the rest of the night.”
“Are you sure?” Alex asked as she gave Hollie a hug.
She gave a slow nod before meeting Jeremy’s eyes.
“It’s settled then.” He placed his and Hollie’s empty drinks on the bar, took her hand, and guided her to the door.
Still unsure, but at the same time giddy, she looked over her shoulder only to see Alex with her thumbs up and an infectious grin on her face.
It was a clear night in Launceston and warm, considering it was only the beginning of summer. Even though a state in Australia, Tasmania didn’t enjoy the hot days like its northern counterparts, so it was no surprise to see many people out and about during this unseasonably warm night. Hollie drew in a breath when she stepped outside. Aware she was still holding Jeremy’s hand, she slowly removed it. He smiled at her actions, radiating confidence. Had his job taught him so much confidence? Or was it just him? When he placed his arm around her shoulder to guide her down the streets to his car, she let him. Somehow enjoying the closeness and damned if she didn’t like the way he cared for her.
A few blocks down the road, he grabbed his keys out of his pocket to push the remote button. Hollie stared. “This is your car?”
There must be a reason for her dreams…
Hollie Anderson, a young woman living in Tasmania, is content with life, even more so since she has met Jeremy. However, she has been having a recurrent dream that impacts her daily life, as well as her relationship, a dream that eventually takes her on a journey to Ireland.
Samantha Shaughnessy enjoys the success as Head of Advertising for a popular magazine in the Irish capital Dublin. Married to Padraic, she thinks she loves her husband, but when she meets Hollie under unusual circumstances, she needs to face the truth–and not just about her marriage.
When both women meet and find they share an unexpected tie to the past, will they finally be able to move on into relationships with the men they love?
“This blood-pumping novel will keep the reader hooked until the very end.” InD’tale Magazine
“Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this wonderful book and fall in love.” (5 star review)

4 stars – NEW BEGINNINGS is a very emotional read, one that is heartwarming as well as heart wrenching. It gives you hope in the act of human kindness and that good things do happen to good people. I highly recommend this book.

She’s pretty willing to show some casual affection. I’m wondering if that’s a sign of things to come, or it she’ll regret it
You might be onto something here, Ed 🙂
Took me a moment to realize Alex was a female. I have a grandson with that name. 🙂
Alex short for Alexandra. I did consider changing but liked the name too much 🙂
