Hi everyone – I’m sharing another snippet of my latest book “In the Shadows of a Lie” which releases this week. The story is mainly set in New Zealand and currently on special for 99c release day. Enjoy ♥♥
This week’s hook …
by Iris Blobel
Moving a strand of hair from her face, Lani pulled a piece of paper from her jacket pocket. She read the instructions from the bed and breakfast owner: Travel one and a half kilometres along the road before you come to a fork intersection. Follow the left for another kilometre. The property will be on your right.
She checked the road name once more although she knew it by heart, having checked it so many times during the bus ride, and stared at the gravel road in front of her. Apprehension trickled through her. She was alone, surrounded by nothing but the stunning scenery. Two and a half kilometres. Lani did a quick calculation. It was going to take her another hour. Now she wished she had rented a car.
She shook her head, because no matter how much she wished for a rental, she wouldn’t have been able to afford it. A wave of unease washed over her, and once again, she questioned her decision to come here.
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?
