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
Dylan placed her bag on the bed and turned to meet her gaze. “I’m sorry this is awkward. I didn’t mean to be nosy but helpful. After all you’re going to be stuck without a vehicle.” He checked the room. “Anyway, your towels are on the bed. The bathroom is over there. Here are the keys. TV is in the main room at the front including a computer. I believe the password is stuck on the screen. My number is…” Dylan pulled out a card. “On here. Call me any time.”
She sucked in her lips as she reached for his card. “I’ll be fine, but thanks.”
Her voice was soft, but still held a lot of hesitation. She rubbed her eyes with the palms of her hands. It must have been a long day for her.
“No offense, but I don’t believe you will be. I’m sure there’s some food around, but whoever you’re looking for, you will need some sort of vehicle.”
“He’s living around here. According to the map no further than a kilometre or two.”
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?
