#SnippetSunday & #WeWriWa “Will you be okay, Miss Cahill?” #8sunday #indieauthor #booktomoviepitch

I’d like to introduce you today to one of my books which is set in Australia and New Zealand ~ THEIR BOND THROUGH JADE Today’s snippet is in Tiffany’s POV. ENJOY ♥

Today’s Snippet

She nodded, appreciating him leaving the card in the door and not insisting on opening up.

“Will you be okay, Miss Cahill?” This time Jones asked.

The simple answer was no, but again, she nodded, hoping for this nightmare to end soon.

Senior Constable Jones and Sergeant Harris left, and Tiffany watched them drive off in their car. Only then did she close the door, leaning against it, and then slowly sliding down. Clasping her legs against her chest, she laid her head on her knees and took a few deep breaths until her heart rate returned to normal.

Tiffany wasn’t sure how long she sat there before she was finally able to get up and reach the phone in the kitchen. She stared at the modern cooking area in front of her as if she was seeing it for the first time. The old wooden cupboards contrasted with her fancy new fridge and oven. The window more or less right in front of her with the view to her neglected back yard. She stepped to the wooden table near the wall and sat before dialling the familiar number. It didn’t take long for someone to answer.


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?

  1. I like how you’ve captured the very human response of focusing on specific details in a room when a stressful situation erupts. She sees everything else while her mind is recovering enough to think to make the call. Tweeted.
