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 available for free on Kindle Unlimited. Enjoy ♥♥
This week’s hook …
by Iris Blobel
“Thought I’d better give you a quick call to let you know I have arrived.”
The relief in her grandmother’s voice was evident by being up a notch. “Oh, darling. So good to hear from you. How was your flight and the bus trip?”
“All went well. The flight was smooth, and the bus ride here was okay, too.” She didn’t mention that she’d had to walk the last stretch of her journey. It would’ve only worried her grandmother.
“Is it as beautiful as the pictures you showed me?”
Her mouth curved into a smile. Yes, it was. She thought of the sparkling snow on the top of the mountains. “It’s dark here already, but I took a few photos, which I’ll send through once we’ll have finished the call.”
“I can’t wait. Are the owners nice and looking after you?”
Lani threw herself onto the bed undecided how to respond. Should she tell the truth? Her grandmother was already anxious about her travelling on her own, never mind the fact that she was twenty-five years old.
She heard her granddad in the background. “What was that?”
“Grandpa is being a smarty pants wanting to know whether you’ve already talked to Tobias.”
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?
