I’m continuing with one of my earlier books. I received my rights back after three wonderful years with a publisher, and it’s now time to fly solo.
The release day is on the 11 August ~ MARK IT IN YOUR CALENDAR ~ and it now has a cover as well. I love it.
The story is set in Hobart, Tasmania, where Sophie and Mia have inherited a house – from a stranger.
He stood with one swift movement and went to a little cupboard near the window to retrieve a bunch of keys. “Would you like me to take you there?”
Still feeling a rush of excitement as well as caution within her, Sophie took Mia’s hand and inclined her head when she asked, “Is it far?”
Her voice sounded tired even to her. It had been a long day already. She stood and placed her arm around Mia assuming that, considering how tired she was, her little sister was most likely exhausted.
“No, not at all. Five to ten minute drive, I’d say,” the attorney replied.
“I still don’t understand. Why us?” Sophie asked quietly, meeting his gaze and, for the first time, actually taking in his icy blue eyes. He was very attractive, with a face tanned by wind and sun, and there always seemed to be a hint of a smile on his lips.
Her gaze fixed back on his mouth. Blushing, she quickly looked away.
He turned to them, raking a hand through his short, curling blond hair. “Ma’am, what I know is that both of you are in the will. What I know is that I was supposed to fly you down here to officially read you the will. What I know is that I’m supposed to hand over the keys to you, and to let you know that your expenses are covered for the next twenty-four months. I did not know Ms. Bellinger, as one of the retired partners wrote up the will. I do not know who she was or in what way she was connected to you. I assumed she was a distant relative of yours.”

He is very precise in his explanation.
Hahaha … yes, he is. Thanks for stopping by, Aurora.
Well, the good fairy has just given her twenty-four months of expense paid living. She has time to figure it out. I am really liking this story.
Yeah !!! Glad you like the story, Gem 🙂
Loving the mystery of all this and it doesn’t hurt that the lawyer is good looking! Great excerpt.
LOL…, it does indeed. Thanks Veronica.
Let’s hope for a lot more scenes between these two…love it! And so proper, ma’am. 🙂
What a pretty cover! Best wishes on the upcoming release.
Aww … thank you, J. Rose 🙂
Definitely a mystery and hopefully one they’ll figure out. I’m intrigued.
Glad you’re liking it. Thanks for stopping by, Karen.
I feel sorry for the attorney, having been in his position of having the same question asked over and over after having said that I don’t know the answer because I wasn’t there when it happened.
(And did I really just say I feel sorry for an attorney? Must be the heat…)
LOL …. did you say you feel sorry for the attorney ?? Didn’t get that, must be the cold at this end of the world 🙂 Thanks, Paula.
I’m as intrigued as she should be! Great snippet.
Glad you like it 🙂 Thanks Joyce.
Big mystery, but very intriguing.
Thanks Elizabeth 🙂
Man, they can’t GET a straight answer on “why them”, can they? The mystery behind it is quite intriguing. Perhaps seeing the house will shed some light on that answer.
Hopefully 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
Sexy lawyer! Love it.
LOL … always a bonus, right? Thanks Cecilia.
The lawyer sounds a bit frustrated with what he doesn’t know- adds to the intrigue.
Thanks, Chelle, Glad you like it.
