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.
Sophie drew in her lips, as her gaze drifted past him to the window. She took a few deep breaths, inwardly calming herself. Nothing had ever been easy in her life.
“Why isn’t the partner here?”
As she pondered on his reply for a moment, she began to imagine what life could be like with this inheritance.
Different. And better.
Another sigh escaped as she returned her gaze to the man behind the desk. “You can’t leave your assets to just anybody, can you?”
“Levesque,” she helped him.
Their eyes met.
“Are you refusing the bequest?” he asked hesitantly, and she clearly noticed how one of his eyebrows arched upward.
Staring blankly with her mouth open, panic rushed through her veins with every thump of her erratic heartbeat. An uncomfortable silence fell over them before she spoke with a rushed voice, “No. No, of course not. We’re accepting.”

I think my curiosity would get the better of me and I’d accept just for that reason. Good snippet, Iris. 🙂
I’m curious to know more. 🙂
Glad you likedid it, Karen.
I’m with everyone else, I’d be too curious to pass this up. 🙂
Her answer held all of her hesitation, doubt, and desperation. I’m looking forward to reading the whole story. 🙂
So glad you’re enjoying the story, Gem.
Of course, she has to accept. But what will she find?
Big question indeed. Thanks, aurora.
I don’t blame her for accepting, but I hope she asks about any conditions or obligations first! 🙂
Oh, I wonder whether she will ☺thanks, Joyce.
And let the adventure begin! Fun stuff, enjoyed the excerpt.
Glad you liked it, Veronica.
I’m another who would accept out of curiosity at the very least. I’d also still want to know “why me?”
You’re always in line with the story, PT. Exactly…. “why me” is a big question.
Same here…but sometimes when things seem too good to be true…
Nice snippet! Love the description of her panic at the end.
Glad you liked it, Rose.
I wouldn’t pass on it either.
Oh, I think I would have to accept too! How intriguing! Good snippet!
Glad you liked it, Elizabeth
Let’s hope she doesn’t come to regret this hasty decision too much.
Fingers crossed ☺
Different sounds good. I think she needs some changes.
Yes, she does indeed. Thanks, Linda
Oh, that is interesting! A house…from a stranger. Nice!
Thank you, Teresa 🙂
I have to agree, I would accept out of curiosity as well, though I might be wary also. They do say curiosity killed the cat for a reason… I wonder if she’s going to regret this acceptance decision. But I also can’t help but notice she never got her answer of why it was left to them, total strangers as she knows.
No regrets 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
