Happy Wednesday everyone.
I thought I’d go back to my first series “Beginnings“. Some of you might not know it, so hopefully you’ll enjoy it just as much as you enjoyed the “Alinta Bay” Stories
Mr. O’Connor let out a long sigh. “Ms. Bellinger was one of the partner’s clients. I was only given the details shortly after the client’s death.”
Sophie drew in her lips, as her gaze drifted past him to the window. She took a few deep breaths, inwardly calming herself. Nothing had ever been easy in her life.
“Why isn’t the partner here?”
As she pondered on his reply for a moment, she began to imagine what life could be like with this inheritance.
Different. And better.
Another sigh escaped as she returned her gaze to the man behind the desk. “You can’t leave your assets to just anybody, can you?”
“Levesque,” she helped him.
Their eyes met. “Are you refusing the bequest?” he asked hesitantly, and she clearly noticed how one of his eyebrows arched upward.
The chance to start life all over with the help of a stranger.
Twenty-two-year-old Sophie Levesque has been guardian to her eight-year-old sister Mia since their mother’s death a few years ago, and it hasn’t been easy. Luck comes their way when they inherit a small house in Hobart. Problem is, though, they don’t know and have never heard of Clara Bellinger, the testator. Settling into their new life, Sophie is still afraid it’s all a mistake.
Mark O’Connor, attorney in Hobart and the bearer of the good news for Sophie and Mia, curses himself for the lack of information about the testator. However, researching the questions gives him an opportunity to see Sophie again, and the more time he spends with the two, the more he realises that his life is missing something. And it’s not his casual lover Linda.
But then there’s Zach, Sophie’s sexy neighbour from across the road… and a very good friend of Clara’s.
Will unravelling the mystery unravel Sophie and Mark’s promise of a future?

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.

Interesting. Why would a person leave a house to a stranger. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for stopping by. Glad you’re enjoying the story so far.
Can’t wait to hear the reason for the bequest
Thank you Janet. 🙂
I suspect Clara wasn’t really a stranger. Btw, love Tasmania. I visited the island years ago and absolutely loved it.
She was … in a twisted way 😉 I love Tassie. It’s a beautiful place. Glad you had the chance to go there.
Lots of unanswered questions – can wait to find out.
Aww, thank you Daryl 🙂
While I can see why she might be suspicious of such a strange bequest, it sure seems legitimate.
It does, still, we often worry too much when we are given a big gift 😉
I don’t blame her for being suspicious; I would be too! Thanks for sharing!
Awkward situation she’s in. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
I’m interested to find out more about this situation!

Thank you. Glad you’re liking the story 🙂
A generous bequest from a stranger always poses questions, but I’ll bet pragmatism leads her to accept it. After all, she’s got her little sister to care for.
You’re spot on … 🙂
