This week’s hook …

IN THE SHADOWS OF A LIE

by Iris Blobel

After a little more than an hour, Lani saw a house in the distance and relief rushed through her. Despite the urge to get to the house, she stopped, grabbed her bag off her shoulders, and reached for her water bottle. Taking a few sips, she relished the cold liquid cooling her parched throat. Not wanting to waste any more time, she returned the empty bottle into the bag and glanced towards the house. Unable to hold back a big sigh, she flung her bag on her shoulders as she dragged her feet along the road. The sun was already setting over the mountains, and although tempted to take another couple of pictures, she kept going. Fortunately, she made it to her destination quicker than expected and as she took the last few steps, her eyes wandered along the outside of the lodge. The stone clad wall and the big windows, as well as the low-level roof, gave it the perfect mountain cabin feeling. She liked the place, despite it being so far away from civilisation. When she had first searched for accommodations, it hadn’t appeared so isolated on the map, but it was ideal and near to where she needed to go. Or in this case, to find someone.

Lani stepped closer then up onto the front porch. Only the buzzing of a few insects disturbed the quiet. A shiver ran down her spine as she moved to the front door and knocked. There were no lights inside the lodge, and even though it wasn’t dark, she would’ve expected one or two lights on already.

BLURB

The discovery of her mother’s diaries unravels a secret which sends Lani on a journey to New Zealand …

She lost her mother in an accident. Now, Lani Dekker is determined to meet the man who, according to her mother’s diaries, is her father. He’s not what she expected, a bit on the extravagant side, but she soon warms up to him, thanks no less to Dylan, her father’s neighbour. Despite her attraction to Dylan, she can’t figure out whether he’s a friend or foe.

Dylan Harper is merely going through the daily motions after his wife died in a ski crash. That is, until his life is turned upside down by the arrival of his neighbour’s daughter. Their attraction is instant, even more so when they wake up in the same bed after an earthquake. However, it’s her accusation that his interest in her involves her father’s money rather than their mutual magnetism that derails their newfound bond.

Will finding the truth about her parents be a chance for Lani and Dylan to overcome their differences?

This week’s hook …

IN THE SHADOWS OF A LIE

by Iris Blobel

She shoved the piece of paper back into her pocket, and her hand touched the photo which was inside. She retrieved the picture of her mother and a man, the very same man she hoped to meet over the next few days. Reminding herself she was running out of time, she returned the old photo as gently as possible and marched along the road again. It would’ve been so much better and less boring if she had charged her headphones.

So she kept walking, looking over her shoulder occasionally, hoping for a car to come along to give her a lift. But that was just wishful thinking. Not to mention, she’d promised her grandma she wouldn’t talk to strangers.

Why on earth was she here anyway?

To meet her father. That was all the incentive she needed to keep going.

This week’s hook …

IN THE SHADOWS OF A LIE

by Iris Blobel

Moving a strand of hair from her face, Lani pulled a piece of paper from her jacket pocket. She read the instructions from the bed and breakfast owner: Travel one and a half kilometres along the road before you come to a fork intersection. Follow the left for another kilometre. The property will be on your right.

She checked the road name once more although she knew it by heart, having checked it so many times during the bus ride, and stared at the gravel road in front of her. Apprehension trickled through her. She was alone, surrounded by nothing but the stunning scenery. Two and a half kilometres. Lani did a quick calculation. It was going to take her another hour. Now she wished she had rented a car.

She shook her head, because no matter how much she wished for a rental, she wouldn’t have been able to afford it. A wave of unease washed over her, and once again, she questioned her decision to come here.

This week’s hook …

IN THE SHADOWS OF A LIE

by Iris Blobel

Lani Dekker adjusted her backpack as she watched the bus she had just exited drive off into the distance. She inhaled deeply, overcome for a moment by the stunning scenery in front of her with the snow-capped mountains and the striking royal blue Lake Tekapo in the distance. Melbourne, Australia, her hometown was a far cry from the view in front of her. Not a house in sight, no cars, just nature and chirping of birds in the distance. She could’ve enjoyed the panorama for a lot longer, but a quick glance at her watch told her she didn’t have much time left until the sun set. Still, she pulled her phone out of her pocket and took a few photos. The colours of the mountains, the lake, and the landscape were unlike anything she had seen before. The scenery in front of her was bright, intense, and so vibrant. She had never seen mountains like these before, being more used to the Victorian coastline, which was beautiful in its own rugged and raw kind of way, albeit different.

#SnippetSunday “He rolled his eyes at himself.” #romancebooks #amreading #amwriting

♥ Happy Sunday ♥
I’m continuing with my latest WIP which is set near
Lake Tekapo, New Zealand. I’ve moved into Dylan’s POV this Sunday.
Enjoy ♥

Dylan pinched the bridge of his nose when he slid behind the wheel of his car. Still confused what had happened the previous twenty minutes. There was no doubt Lani Thompson was an interesting person. He rolled his eyes at himself. Interesting? How on earth was he able to make this judgement after only a few minutes of chaotic conversation where lots had been implied and little had been said? She was here to see Toby and that made her an interesting person. It was as simple as that.
He reached for his phone and saw he’d missed two calls from Teddy. Ignoring them for the moment, he blew out a breath. He’d failed as a bed and breakfast host. He wasn’t good at all this. He was supposed to have asked Lani to fill in the guest book and grab a copy of her driver’s licence. He’d been in a rush after struggling with the flat tyre and, yes, taken aback by his body’s reaction to her. He shook the thought out of his head. There was no reaction, but surprise. He’d been expecting a middle aged woman, although he had no idea why. Seeing Lani in front of him, probably early twenties, out of control red hair, and green eyes like he’d never seen before had completely thrown him.

Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

♥ Happy Sunday ♥

Lake Tekapo, New Zealand.
Enjoy ♥

Despite being tired, it took Lani a long time to fall asleep. There were so many things going around in her head that her mind wasn’t able to calm and let her sleep. Not to mention that every tiny noise in the house made her jerk and listen so intently that she was wide awake again.
She’d finally arrived in New Zealand and was anxious about meeting Tobias. Her father.
Blowing out a heavy breath, she reached for the light before searching for the photo of her mother and Tobias. It didn’t take long before she retrieved it from her jacket. She studied him and traced his face with her finger. The man next to her mother had dark curly hair, dark eyes and a solid build. In her diary her mother described him with chocolate brown eyes, thin lips, and dark chest hair.
Lani let out a soft snort. It was obvious she didn’t have the red hair from him, however, she could blame him for the wild curls.

♥ Happy Sunday ♥
I’m continuing with my latest WIP which is set near
Lake Tekapo, New Zealand.

A stab of pain went through her. Her grandfather had always been her best friend, the person to go to when she was in trouble, when she had her heart broken or when she’d lost her job and had to move in with them because she was broke. And he’d been her rock when her mother had died in a plane crash six months ago. There was no way that she would’ve coped without him. He’d been there for her even though he was grieving the loss of his child.
“Tell grandpa I agree I don’t have to meet him.” She paused for a beat. “But I want to.”
“Darling, don’t take it to heart. He’s being replaced by—”
“No one could ever replace him,” Lani emphasised. “Grandpa is my one and only.”
Her grandmother let out a soft sigh, but didn’t reply.
Lani closed her eyes. “I’d better go and get a good sleep. It’s going to be a big couple of days.”
“Good luck with it all.”
“Thank you.”
She disconnected the call, checked her email, and switched off the phone. On second thought, she turned it on again and muted it.
Good luck. Her grandmother’s words popped into her mind. Dylan had said the same thing. Why? What was she missing? Was she heading head first into a wall? She shook the thought away. Everything was going to be fine, after all, he was her father.
