This week’s hook …
IN THE SHADOWS OF A LIE
by Iris Blobel
Was she going headfirst into a wall?
She shook the notion away. Everything was going to be fine, after all, he was her father.
Despite being exhausted, it took Lani a long time to fall asleep. So many things were going around in her head that her mind wasn’t able to calm. On top of that, every little noise in the house made her jerk and listen, resulting in a big lack of sleep.
Her emotions were going into overdrive. Yes, she finally was in New Zealand, however, an anxiety about meeting Tobias, her father, grew intensely within her.
Taking in a few long breaths, she reached for the light before searching for the photo of her mother and Tobias. It didn’t take long before she retrieved it from her jacket. She studied him and traced his face with her finger. The man next to her mother had dark curly hair, dark eyes, and a solid build. In her diary, her mother had described him as having chocolate brown eyes, thin lips, and dark chest hair.
Lani let out a soft snort. Clearly, she didn’t have the red hair from him, however, she could blame him for her wild curls.
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?
