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 currently on special for 99c. Enjoy ♥♥
This week’s hook …
by Iris Blobel
Dylan Harper’s mouth edged up into a smile as he sauntered to the centre of the kitchen. “May I assume you’re Ms Dekker?”
He took her in. She was dressed for the local environment with her cargo pants, hiking boots, and a warm puffy jacket. Her wild, curly hair was held back in a ponytail with a white scrunchie. Her hair was an intense dark shade he’d never seen before. Her beautiful emerald green eyes were equally intriguing. He couldn’t help but be drawn in by them, even more so via the small distance between him and her. It didn’t go past him, though, that the very same eyes reflected a mix of worry and hesitation with every step he moved closer to her.
He held out his hand. “I’m Dylan. Teddy Larson’s neighbour.”
Her eyes widened.
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?
