This week’s hook …
by Iris Blobel
“Tell Grandpa, I agree. I don’t have to meet him.” She paused for a beat. “But I want to.”
“Darling, don’t take it to heart. He feels he’s being replaced by—”
“No one could ever replace him,” Lani emphasised. “Grandpa is my one and only.”
Her grandmother let out a soft sigh but didn’t reply.
Lani massaged her forehead. “I’d better go and get a good sleep. It’s going to be a big couple of days.”
“I hope all goes well. We have our fingers crossed.”
She disconnected the call, checked her email, and switched off the phone. On second thought, she turned it on again but muted it.
Fingers crossed. Her grandmother’s words popped into her mind. Dylan had said something along that line as well. Why? What was she missing? Was she going headfirst into a wall?
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?
