SnippetSunday #WeWriWa “How’s Mum?” #books #mustread #bookseries #AlintaBay

Hi everyone ♥

I’m Ba-ack! We’ve just returned from a nice break in Europe, visiting my family and travelling Norway. Definitely have many new ideas for another book.

But until then, here’s another snippet from ALINTA BAY where it all began – DEFYING RULES,  Logan’s story. All books in the series are available on KU. Book #1 is only 99c ♥


Today’s Snippet

He’d always been close to them, and Harrison was more like a brother to him and Kristen than a cousin.

“How are you holding up?” Graham’s voice was barely above a whisper.

With a lift of his shoulder, he let Logan know that he wasn’t sure, yet. It must’ve been hard for him losing his brother at such a young age.

“How’s Mum?”

“She’s inside having a nap. The doctor’s given her some medication. My mum’s gone to the shop to get some bread,” Harrison explained.

Logan walked over to Kristen, placed his arm around her shoulder, and brushed her forehead with a kiss.

“How are you, pumpkin?”

She moved around to look at him, and a heaviness settled on his chest, seeing the signs of her struggles. Her eyes reflected her pain for everyone to see. He wiped a tear from her red face, which was also blotchy and swollen. Harrison hadn’t exaggerated when he’d told him she took it hard. He understood her pain. It broke his heart; he knew what she was going through.

She shook her head but didn’t speak. He gave her a moment, knowing only a few, if any words could describe what she was feeling.

Nick, still in her embrace, sobbed against her chest. “Is he really dead?”

Kristen hugged him even tighter as more tears flowed down her face. “Yes, honey. I’m afraid he is.”

Harrison joined them. “How about we head inside?”

Nick moved out of Kristen’s embrace and looked at Harrison, trying hard to control his sobs. “Thank you for trying to help Grandpa when he had the heart attack.”


Sometimes one has to break rules in order to find happiness…

Widower Logan Hendrix is puzzled by the recent series of small crimes against his son’s new teacher. It’s a mystery to him, and he offers her his help. There’s an instant attraction, and Logan wants to take their parent/teacher relationship to a more personal level.

It doesn’t take Addison Ryker long to fall in love with Alinta Bay, the small town she’s moved to for her new teaching position at the local primary school. Her newfound haven is threatened, however, when her house is broken into and she is relying on the unbelievably stubborn but very sexy Logan for help. Although captivated by him, Addison worries her career could be compromised, because there are rules about dating a parent.

  1. Children’s sorrow is so much more heartbreaking. Something about their innocence being shattered by the death of a loved one is just heart-wrenching and you show this so well. Tweeted.

    1. Thank you, Jenna. Children look at things differently, and the concept of “never” is hard to understand for them.

  2. Very sad for the children, and their mother. A moving snippet.

    Glad you enjoyed your time away, Iris. I would love to visit Norway some day. I’ve been learning the language (slowly) on DuoLingo.

    1. Grief can be devastating 🙁

      Good on you for learning Norwegian. I found it reasonably easy to understand when reading the language as it seems to be close to English and German, but when spoken …. 😀 … no hope!
