♠♠ OUT NOW ♠♠
The 3rd book in the Beginnings series was released in October, and I’d love to get “you hooked” with some snippets.
I’ve moved the story a little forward … this is when Jared meets Ivy, the heroine of this story. She’s left her boyfriend “to start a new life”
Ivy hadn’t known how hungry she really was until she sat at the table and read the menu. It had a long list of choices, yet she didn’t want to take advantage of his generosity. She ignored her own thoughts that her Aussie man was a bank robber on the run, and subsequently, she was spending illegal money. Yet, dizzy at the possibility of it, she remembered he’d said he was a landscaper and ignored the fact that he obviously wouldn’t admit to being a murderer or a bank robber as well. With all those thoughts running through her head, a sickly feeling spread in her stomach and her hunger disappeared. She needed some serious distraction.
“What brings you to the USA, Jared?” she asked, hoping to find out more about the very handsome stranger in front of her.
But he only shrugged and replied, “Holidays.”
Assuming that holidays were the same as what Americans called vacations, she thought she’d never had vacations in her life, let alone in another country.
“Australia is supposed to be beautiful. Why didn’t you drive around with your RV down there?”
He raised one eyebrow at her, and she wasn’t sure what that meant. Staring at him, he simply stared back.
“Are you running?” she asked carefully.
“Nope, I’m drivin’.”
Letting out an exasperated sigh. “I meant in—”
His laughter startled her. “Nah, I’m not running.” He met her gaze dead on. “But you are.”
The words were quietly spoken, but still went through her like a knife.
Jared Fraser, a landscape business owner in Hobart, Australia, sets out for a holiday to the USA to travel along the Route 66 in a motorhome. Looking forward to his first holiday overseas, he’s excited as he prepares himself for the journey. But little could’ve prepared him for crossing paths with a beautiful hitchhiker.
Will he be able to put his past aside and grab onto happiness?
Ivy Bennett thought leaving her boyfriend would be the hard part. It doesn’t take long to figure out how wrong she was. As she struggles with making a new start in her life, the last person she expects to lead her to happiness is a laid-back Australian on vacation.
But she will have to say goodbye again. And not only to Jared.
