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
“What on earth are you doing in this part of the world without a car?” he asked, both out of curiosity and to keep the slow conversation going. She must’ve been exhausted after not only the bus ride, but also the hike to the house.
“I’m hoping to meet someone.”
“In Lake Tekapo?”
He stopped and glanced over his shoulder. “Sort of?”
“He lives up here somewhere.”
“The person I’m hoping to meet.”
Swapping the bag over into his other hand, he kept walking until they reached her room. “May I ask who you’re hoping to meet around here?”
“I’d rather you wouldn’t.”
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?
