Happy Wednesday everyone.
This is my latest release
which was released on 17 March 2020.
I hope you’ll enjoy today’s “hook”.
Half an hour later, they stopped in front of his childhood home. Logan hadn’t even switched off the engine completely when he saw Kristen rushing from the house towards them. He heard Nick unbuckling and opening the car door just as quickly and within only a few seconds, his son was in his auntie’s embrace. Taking a deep breath, Logan gave his legs a little shake after the long drive and got out. Harrison and Graham had emerged from the house as well, and Logan walked towards them, his feet heavier with each step. His stomach clenched when he looked at his late father’s brother. Uncle Graham’s unusually pale skin emphasised the dark circles under his eyes even more. Logan’s heart broke for his uncle, knowing the pain he was going through. They embraced and patted each other gently on the back. He turned towards Harrison, his eyes filled with sadness, and Logan’s throat tightened at the emotions rushing through him. Appreciation filled him knowing that he wasn’t alone in this.
He’d always been close to them, and Harrison was more like a brother to him and Kristen than a cousin.
“How are you holding up?” Graham’s voice was barely above a whisper.
With a lift of his shoulder, he let Logan know that he wasn’t sure, yet. It must’ve been hard for him losing his brother at such a young age.
“She’s inside having a nap. The doctor’s given her some medication. My mum’s gone to the shop to get some bread,” Harrison explained.
Logan walked over to Kristen, placed his arm around her shoulder, and brushed her forehead with a kiss.
“How are you, pumpkin?”
She moved around to look at him, and a heaviness settled on his chest, seeing the signs of her struggles. Her eyes reflected her pain for everyone to see. He wiped a tear from her red face, which was also blotchy and swollen. Harrison hadn’t exaggerated when he’d told him she took it hard. He understood her pain. It broke his heart; he knew what she was going through.
She shook her head but didn’t speak. He gave her a moment, knowing only a few, if any words could describe what she was feeling.
Nick, still in her embrace, sobbed against her chest.
“Is he really dead?”
Sometimes one has to break rules in order to find happiness…
Widower Logan Hendrix is puzzled by the recent series of small crimes against his son’s new teacher. It’s a mystery to him, and he offers her his help. There’s an instant attraction, and Logan wants to take their parent/teacher relationship to a more personal level.
It doesn’t take Addison Ryker long to fall in love with Alinta Bay, the small town she’s moved to for her new teaching position at the local primary school. Her newfound haven is threatened, however, when her house is broken into and she is relying on the unbelievably stubborn but very sexy Logan for help. Although captivated by him, Addison worries her career could be compromised, because there are rules about dating a parent.

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.

Awww … thank you Dee. Enjoy ♥
Thank you for stopping by and sharing 🙂
Leave it to a child to ask the question everyone’s avoiding
I love that about children. They have no holding back, a sincere honesty.
Glad you liked today’s hook 🙂
Enjoyed reading your snippet. Full of emotion. Very well done. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, Tena, for stopping by. I’m glad you enjoyed today’s hook 🙂
Wow, your hook is deep and emotional. Easy to see their pain through Logan’s eyes. His too.
Thank you so very much, Mary, for your very kind words. I’m glad you liked the snippet.
It’s easy to see Nick’s still in the first stage of grief: denial.
Thanks Ed. Little kids often move on very quickly, or take a long time to deal with the death of a loved one I think.
