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
For the next ten minutes, she wandered through the house and checked the doors and windows. The house was beautiful. The owner had decorated it in a tasteful mountain log cabin style. It had been built and primarily furnished of wood. And she loved it. Most of the spacious rooms incorporated a window bench to enjoy the view and a cosy little bathroom. The fireplace was the centrepiece of the living room … and suddenly she thought of the possibility of a cold night ahead, but with some relief, she remembered seeing a panel heater in her room. She needed to check it before going to bed.
After her tour of the house, Lani returned to the kitchen for her belated cup of tea and then meandered upstairs where she found another two rooms. Loft rooms. She strode over to the window and with a full moon shining bright, she was treated to a memorable view of the mountains in the distance. The snow glittered like diamonds under the starry night, dancing on the snow. It was hypnotising.
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?
