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 rubbed his chin. “The only people living around here are me, about five hundred metres down the road, and Tobias Linaker.”
A hint of red crept into her cheeks, but she remained silent.
“You have to be kidding me. You’re here to see Toby?” He did his best to suppress his laughter but failed miserably.
“I can’t see anything funny in what I’ve said or in this case haven’t said.”
“May I ask the reason you want to see Toby?”
Lani stepped to the bed and reached for her bag. “I’d rather you don’t.”
He dragged a hand through his hair, curiosity growing as to why she would want to visit his neighbour. Putting his interest aside, he offered, “I have a spare ute you can use for the next few days, so you won’t be stuck up here. I’ll bring it by tomorrow.” He turned to leave but stopped. “And good luck with Toby, eh. You’ll need it.”
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?
