Considering his words, she let her gaze move out the window, watching the gentle breeze through the trees. It’d been something she knew many people had difficulty to understand, but she tried anyway. “I know. But it makes me feel better. We’ve owed too many people too much of everything. This is a new start. No more relying on others.”
Out of the corner of her eye, she noticed he lowered his head in agreement. “I think I understand.” As he walked past them, he touched Mia’s nose with his finger and winked at her. “I’ll be back in a few minutes.”
A few seconds later, the sound of the front door told them that he’d left. Relieved and disappointed, Sophie pulled her sister even closer to herself, trying hard not to burst into tears. Over the last few days she’d imagined their new place in all variations, from small to run down. From a dump to all being a bad mistake. But this wasn’t at all what she’d expected. Not even close. This was like a dream come true, and she’d do everything in her power to take advantage of this new opportunity to give her sister the best life she could possibly offer.
“I love it, Mia.”
Her sister turned to look at her. “Is it really ours?”
Sophie nodded. “That’s what Mark says.”
“Our own little castle,” Mia whispered.
The chance to start life all over with the help of a stranger.
Twenty-two-year-old Sophie Levesque has been guardian to her eight-year-old sister Mia since their mother’s death a few years ago, and it hasn’t been easy. Luck comes their way when they inherit a small house in Hobart. Problem is, though, they don’t know and have never heard of Clara Bellinger, the testator. Settling into their new life, Sophie is still afraid it’s all a mistake.
Mark O’Connor, attorney in Hobart and the bearer of the good news for Sophie and Mia, curses himself for the lack of information about the testator. However, researching the questions gives him an opportunity to see Sophie again, and the more time he spends with the two, the more he realises that his life is missing something. And it’s not his casual lover Linda.
But then there’s Zach, Sophie’s sexy neighbour from across the road… and a very good friend of Clara’s.
Will unravelling the mystery unravel Sophie and Mark’s promise of a future?
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.
“I’ve always enjoyed Ms. Blobel’s novels, but I adored New Beginnings. This is a feel good story centered on love and hope, Sophie’s dedication to her younger sister, Mia, is incredible. The child is the center of her universe and there’s nothing she won’t do for her. Concerned the recent inheritance is all a mistake, Sophie wants to know more about the woman who gave them a home. Helping her is a drop-dead gorgeous attorney and the handsome, hunky neighbor. Sophie’s journey of discovery is a beautiful one, and when she gets her answers, she finds the last thing she ever thought she would–love. Looking forward to the next book in this excellent series.”
“Wow…what a tangled web we weave! Sophie has got it coming in all directions with the mystery of the testator. These are the type of stories that I love…since it has a bit of everything in it. Not only do we get a bit of a love triangle but add some mystery and thriller to it. Now, that makes a perfect book by Ms. Blobel! But let me remind you that this is nothing new since I find myself always wrapped up in this author’s writing since she writes with emotion and feelings. Whether it be anger, happiness, sadness – you name it…Ms. Blobel gives us the whole package in her stories!”
