Mark stared at him. “You did what?”
“Booked a holiday. Time for this ol’ man to forget about work and live some. Isn’t that what ya always tell me?”
Raising his brows, he opened his mouth to speak, but no words came out as he continued staring.
Laughing, Jared clapped his friend on the shoulder. “Close ya mouth or the flies will call it a home.”
He did. “The USA?”
Jared gave his thumbs up. “Yup.”
“A bit over four weeks.”
Mark’s eyebrows shot up again. “Four weeks. Who’s looking after the business?”
“If I had known ya’d bombard me with all these questions, I’d have told ya inside. Graham will do most of it, and you’ll help him with the books.”
His buddy raked his hand through his hair.
“Ya owe me, O.C.”
Jared Fraser, a landscape business owner in Hobart, Australia, sets out for a holiday to the USA to travel along the Route 66 in a motorhome. Looking forward to his first holiday overseas, he’s excited as he prepares himself for the journey. But little could’ve prepared him for crossing paths with a beautiful hitchhiker.
Will he be able to put his past aside and grab onto happiness?
Ivy Bennett thought leaving her boyfriend would be the hard part. It doesn’t take long to figure out how wrong she was. As she struggles with making a new start in her life, the last person she expects to lead her to happiness is a laid-back Australian on vacation.
But she will have to say goodbye again. And not only to Jared.
4 stars – NEW BEGINNINGS is a very emotional read, one that is heartwarming as well as heart wrenching. It gives you hope in the act of human kindness and that good things do happen to good people. I highly recommend this book.
