For today’s snippet I moved a little forward to introduce Addison – the main female character. My apologies that the snippet is a bit longer today, but I wanted to have that last sentence included.
DEFYING RULES is set along the Australian Great Ocean Road and tells the story of Ethan Tomlin, single dad, and manager of a hotel chain.
This is still a WIP, so critique away.
Thanks … and enjoy 🙂
The expression on her father’s face told her he wasn’t convinced, but he let it go.
The chapter Ryan was in the past. It was a closed book, placed into the very back corner of her shelf so it was easily forgotten.
“I hope he was reprimanded as well.”
“You have to have the last word, don’t you, Harold,” her mother said. “Addy’s moved on, so should you.”
He mumbled some more words, which made Addison smile. Ever the protective father.
She gazed across the ocean again, listening to the constant roar of the surf — her thoughts wandering off again to the school concert a few weeks earlier.
And the dad without a name.
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

4 stars – NEW BEGINNINGS is a very emotional read, one that is heartwarming as well as heart wrenching. It gives you hope in the act of human kindness and that good things do happen to good people. I highly recommend this book.

I have a feeling that Ryan is going to come back to reopen his book when we think about him the least. I wonder what her father would do.
Interesting thoughts … 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Linda.
Ryan is going to show up in her life again, isn’t he? The past always comes back to haunt you. lol
Isn’t that the truth 🙂 Thanks Karen.
I think both Ryan and the ‘dad with no name’ will be showing up in her life, whether she’s moved on or not. Great snippet, Iris. 🙂
Yes, they will 🙂 Thanks, Siobhan.
And the story moves smoothly onward…enjoyed the excerpt!
Glad you’re still enjoying the story, Veronica.
Sounds like she’s more than a little interested in the “dad without a name.”
Yup 🙂 Thanks, PT.
What’s with the dad without a name? Great last line to make us wonder.
We’ll hopefully find out soon 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Ed.
