♠♠ 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”
“I… I didn’t—”
Quickly he reached out for her hand. “I’m pulling your leg.” And when she didn’t reply again, he muttered, “This thing with you Americans not understanding English is turning into a problem. I was kiddin’.”
“Pulling your leg?” She shook her head. “Oh! Oh, I remember my grandpa saying that sometimes.”
A bark of laughter filled the small space. “Anyway. Talkin’ about food. There’s a small place ahead. Want some lunch?”
Ivy was hungry indeed, but last time she had checked her wallet it was near empty. There was no way she was able to afford food in a diner.
“I’m not that hungry. I’ll wait outside,” she lied without looking at him.
As the words had left her lips, her stomach betrayed her by making a loud rumbling sound.
Jared laughed. “Sure? Ya might have to confer with your body, mate.”
Heat rushed into her, and her heart beat at an unusually fast rhythm. Still turned away from him, she watched nature go by, but his curses made her look back at him. With great effort, she held back a laugh as he switched on the windshield wipers instead of the blinker.
“We might not be able to speak English in your sense, but at least we know how to drive.”
He shot her a look, and worry shot through her she might have gone too far.
“You think ya can drive better?”
“Mate,” she mocked his Australian accent. “Americans know how to drive!”
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.
