This week’s hook …
by Iris Blobel
She shoved the piece of paper back into her pocket, and her hand touched the photo which was inside. She retrieved the picture of her mother and a man, the very same man she hoped to meet over the next few days. Reminding herself she was running out of time, she returned the old photo as gently as possible and marched along the road again. It would’ve been so much better and less boring if she had charged her headphones.
So she kept walking, looking over her shoulder occasionally, hoping for a car to come along to give her a lift. But that was just wishful thinking. Not to mention, she’d promised her grandma she wouldn’t talk to strangers.
Why on earth was she here anyway?
To meet her father. That was all the incentive she needed to keep going.
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?
