We’re back from our travels to the southern island of New Zealand. As always, we had a wonderful time and I’ve returned with many new book ideas … watch this space!
Mat leaned against the car with one hand in his pocket and watched the heavy traffic, recalling his conversation with Tiffany earlier that day. “Well,” he began. “I answered your phone, and she hung up but rang again. I told her you weren’t home, and she asked me to leave a message and hung up. I returned the call, and we had a bit of a chit chat. You seem very overprotective.”
There was a pause before Steve spoke. “Yeah, she’s a great friend who’s been through a rough patch.”
“How come you’ve never talked about her?”
“I probably have mentioned her, but nothing worth you remembering.”
“Should’ve though, I guess.” Mat thought about it for a moment. “Anyway, glad you talked to her. The panic in her voice had me worried. You’ll have to tell me more about your girl tonight. I’ve got to go,” he said eventually with a grin.
“She’s not my girl,” his friend replied through gritted teeth. “And good luck with your meeting.”
When Tiffany Cahill opens the door to the police, memories of the past return to haunt her. She calls her friend Steve for help, only to be surprised by the voice of a stranger on the other end of the line. She never anticipates the impact this New Zealander is going to have on her life, even more so when she becomes the victim of an assault just a few hours later.
Mat Apanui, owner of a helicopter tour company in New Zealand, can hear the urgency and despair in Tiffany’s voice. They have never met before, but he feels compelled to help her. After an assault on her, he invites her to travel with him to his home in Queenstown, New Zealand, where he believes he can provide her with the temporary safety and security she needs until the situation is resolved.
But can Tiffany overcome her reservations and trust a stranger like Mat enough to fly across the Tasman Sea?
