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
Eyes wide, she asked, “What’s that supposed to mean?”
How was he meant to answer? He didn’t know, so he left the room without replying.
He blew out a breath and stopped at the touch of her hand on his arm.
“I was taught manners, but I’m dead on my feet. It’s been a long day and this…” She waved her hand a little. “…is not what I expected.” Removing her hand from him, she continued. “Will you stay for breakfast tomorrow morning?”
Slowly, he raised his left brow. “Wasn’t part of the deal, but my curiosity is piqued.”
Her soft laugh was nothing more than a faint sound, but pure. Not only had she roused his curiosity by wanting to see Toby, but she intrigued him as well. Something about her screamed determination and strength, because truth be told, she’d handled the situation well, considering she was going to stay on her own in a big house, in the middle of nowhere in a foreign country.
“I’ll be here at eight o’clock. Please lock the doors after me.”
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?
