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
Lani stood and enjoyed the display in front of her for a while before she returned to her own room. She unpacked a sandwich and ate it as she read through the information folder. It had the touristy details in it like main phone numbers for police, hospital, and emergency. It also listed some local activities and recommended a few restaurants. It contained housekeeping items such as the location of the main exits in case of a fire and the time for breakfast, which, in her case at the moment, was irrelevant. It detailed instructions on how to light a fire, for which she was grateful, and the connection for the Wi-Fi.
She placed the folder back on the bedside table and reached for her phone to connect. Her relief was instant as soon as the little indicator told her she had been successful. Quickly, she checked her emails and then the local time in Melbourne. They were only two hours behind. She opened another app and called her grandmother.
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?
