#MFRWHooks “She braced herself for the icy water.” #99c #amreading #preorder #comingsoon #OneClick

Happy Wednesday everyone.
I’d like to introduce you to book 2 in the Alinta Bay series
which is currently available on pre-order for 99c .
I hope you’ll enjoy today’s “hook”.

Today’s Hook:

Moving her gaze from the soaked carpet towards the door and up to the ceiling, she couldn’t see any obvious signs that the water had come through the roof at this end of the house. She listened carefully, but wasn’t able to hear anything, either, especially not from the bathroom. Taking in a deep breath, she braced herself for the icy water as she was about to put her feet onto the floor. Her spirit plummeted at the thought that the next four months were going to be a nightmare considering the repairs that needed to be made, not to mention dealing with the insurance. And the cost of it all. Trying to tackle one problem at the time, she stood to inspect the damage. Instant pain shot through her as she ran on the tip of her toes, out of the bedroom, along the hall, and to the laundry to find her boots — thanking the winter sale last year, when she’d bought them for next to nothing. With some relief, she saw that only the front part of the house seemed to be affected by the water, but at the same time a rush of resignation shot through her and tears flowed. The splish-splash of her boots as she walked to the kitchen echoed along the hall. With a big sigh, she grabbed the phone and called her friend Kristen.


Confronted with the choice to care for his friend’s family on the other side of the world or to return to Alinta Bay to be with his own newfound family, how will Noah choose?

Following the death of his grandmother, Noah Fielding returns to Alinta Bay and the first thing — or person — he finds is the next-door neighbour in his nan’s bathroom — naked no less. Still jetlagged, he doesn’t hit it off with Molly at first. Yet, over the next few weeks, as his past uncovers itself bit by bit, she becomes is anchor, his friend, and his lover.

Molly Reid had the world at her feet, happily married with a young son … until a tragic car accident took everything away from her. With her heart broken, she moves to Alinta Bay to escape the memories of the past. Her peaceful existence, however, is interrupted after a heavy storm floods her house and she temporarily moves into her recently deceased neighbour’s house next door.

When Noah’s friend and partner goes missing during a routine flight, Noah returns to Alaska to help, but will he come back for Molly?

 “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)

Mat is a sexy, tattooed New Zealander with a strong sense of family and duty and Tiffany is a woman with a past that continues to haunt her. Can Mat help her overcome her demons and move on with the next phase of her life? Come for the romance and stay for the breathtaking scenery. (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.

  1. Oooh! I think I’d be overwhelmed by all this too! Sounds like things are about to get exciting in Alaska!

    1. Start of the story is set in Australia, and yes it’ll be quite interesting. Glad you liked the snippet. Thanks for your comment, Mckenna.

  2. The devil is in the details and your details are wonderful. I shivered right along with her, bare feet running in the water. Yuck. Great job!

  3. Having just been through a remodel, I feel for Molly. Not fun. At least I didn’t have to deal with icy waters.

    Nice to read a snippet about Australia. I was supposed to go there last month, but the tour was cancelled. One day.

    1. So very sorry to hear about the cancellation of your trip. Fingers crossed you’ll be able to come soon, and if you do, let me know 🙂

  4. Got a kick out of the thought about the boots. Her house is flooded but she thinks about her boots having been on sale. That’s the kind of inane thought that runs through your head at moments like that. Nicely done. 🙂
