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
With a quick shrug of his shoulder, he explained. “Teddy had to go to Christchurch on short notice and asked me to look after you.”
She arched one of her brows, and damn if that reaction didn’t annoy him, despite the fact that she had a right to it. But it in all fairness, it wasn’t his fault. It’d been all a bit on short notice, and he’d been happy to help.
“Sorry for being late. Had a flat tyre out of all days.”
Hesitantly, she moved forward and took his hand. “I’m Lani Dekker.”
“Where’s your car?”
She stepped back, clearly still unsure of the situation. Who could blame her? She had booked a room in a bed and breakfast somewhere in the mountains of New Zealand, only to find a stranger instead of her host. Not that she would’ve known Teddy, but at least they would’ve communicated in some way or another.
“I came by bus.”
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?
