Today’s Snippet

Her mother, Ana, gently rested her hand on Addison’s arm. “Oh, Addy darling. Not to forget, you also have inherited your father’s pigheadedness.”

The room filled with their laughter.

“How about I prepare some lunch before we start emptying the boxes? I can unpack some of your utensils while in the kitchen,” her mother suggested.

Addy placed a kiss on her mother’s cheek. “That’d be lovely. Thank you.”

** AND A LITTLE MORE **

Ana stepped over a few of the boxes and around some of the furniture. Addison watched as her mother gave her husband a quick smile before she left the room. Addy met her father’s eyes for a brief moment, her unspoken appreciation of her parents’ help as well as their love accepted with a wink.

Little by little, she unpacked the smaller boxes, while her father started moving bigger items like furniture.

A thrill of excitement ran through her as the house was filled with her belongings, making it hers. She’d collected some durable, good quality second hand furnishings. The Melbourne apartment she’d lived in had been in a beautiful location, but it’d been small but all she’d been able to afford in the metropolitan city.

The school she had worked for the previous two years hadn’t been able to renew her contract, so she’d decided to try a sea change. The contract at Alinta Bay Primary School was for twelve months only, but the Principal was confident, if she performed well, that it could turn into an ongoing position.

He’d given her a week to make a decision, but one weekend in Alinta Bay and she’d already made up her mind. She had loved the place.

It was her mother this time who brought her back to the present. “Lunch is ready, Addy. Want me to set something up on the veranda?”

“That’d be perfect, Mum. Thank you so much.”

Moments later, Addison sat on the small patio at the back of her house with her parents having their lunch, and everyone enjoying the view. The day she’d inspected the house with her parents for the first time, was the day she’d known better things lay ahead of her.

“I can see your mother coming for a visit more often than you might like.”

Addison let out a little laugh.

Her mother wagged her hand at her husband with a grin. “Oh, Harry. Don’t be like that. I love the sea and you know that. But I know not to overdo it with my visits.”

“That’s okay, Mum. You’re more than welcome here. I suppose it’ll be nice to have you come around once in a while.”

“Have you met anybody, yet, darling?” her mother wanted to know.

She nodded. “Yes. Don’t you remember I told you about the Christmas Carols a few weeks back? I was introduced to the other staff and some children. The teachers were lovely and very welcoming. I was also introduced to my class.”

“Oh, how wonderful,” her mother cooed.

“The few children I met seemed very well behaved and very nice. I even had the chance to talk to some of the parents. A few of them offered to help me move.” She smiled as she remembered the various offers. It was a bit like one of those perfect movies of the perfect town — she always tried to find a catch to these generous offers, but people in Alinta Bay seemed genuinely nice.

Leaning back as she took a bite of her sandwich, she remembered one of the parents in particular.

A boy’s father.

Today’s Snippet

Sunlight poured in through the front windows, brightly illuminating the room. The bookshelf in the corner looked perfect, albeit empty. Again, her gaze moved across the room and down the hall. Her house was filled with boxes in every available spot. Random checks told her that all her belongings were accounted for. But how she had accumulated so much stuff over only a few years living away from her parents was beyond her.

Harry’s words pulled her back from her thoughts. “You’re like your mother. Nothing gets thrown away.”

Chocking back a small laugh, she met her father’s gaze as she placed her arm around her mother. “Apparently, I inherited your blue eyes, the unruly, stubborn black hair, my wit, and not to mention the freckles. About time I find a gene I have from Mum.”

Today’s Snippet

Logan’s heart broke seeing his son in so much pain, and he wished there was a simple solution to help him.

“I’ll put the kettle on,” he heard Graham saying and turned to follow everyone into the kitchen.

Graham’s wife, Lisa, had returned with some bread for sandwiches, and they sat at the table as Graham organised a few snacks for everyone. With Nick on his lap, Harrison retold what had happened over the previous days. Logan watched Kristen move restlessly on her chair, repeatedly taking deep breaths to settle her emotions he guessed.

His son’s voice was tired when he asked, “Was he in pain?”

Harrison shook his head. “Not sure about the actual heart attack, but once he was in hospital, he simply closed his eyes and fell asleep peacefully.”

Nick’s arms around his neck tightened, and Logan knew his son wanted to cry some more but was out of tears. Lethargy had kicked in.

Even though they’d been quiet, their presence must’ve woken his mother, and she appeared in the hall. Taken aback by her swollen face and puffy eyes, it was difficult for Logan not to feel or show his own anguish. With only a few steps, he was in front of her and took her in his arms, giving her the comfort she needed, and, at the same time, drawing comfort from her.

“So glad you’re home,” Maureen whispered into his chest, but before he was able to reply, Nick squeezed between them.

“Nan?”

She pulled out of her son’s embrace and kneeled to take her grandson in her arms. “Oh, darling. I’m so sorry.”

“Is he really gone?” the boy wanted to know.

She ran her hand down his face. “I’m afraid so.”

Nick wept even more if that was possible. “I miss him.”

“We all do.”

Logan’s heart broke seeing his son in so much pain, and he wished there was a simple solution to help him.

Excerpt

As she <Molly> reached for her underwear, the door opened. Jerking to a straight upright stance, ignoring the hammering in her chest, she stared for a second. A scream was stuck in her throat, almost choking her, she tried to let it out but in vain. Instinctively, she grabbed the soap and threw it at the person standing in the door.

The man didn’t budge.

She looked around, grabbed for her face washer, and threw that at him as well, even as she admitted to herself about the uselessness of the piece of cloth.

He caught it and a frown crossed his face. “Will you stop it?”

Finally able to, she shouted at the top of her voice. “Out! Get out!”

But he only cocked a lazy brow at her.

Holding on to the towel with one hand, she searched for something else to throw at him. “Who are you? What are you doing here?”

He raised his other brow as well. “Me?”

Although the steady drumming of her heartbeat still pulsed in her ears, the initial scare inside her abated. Despite a startling tingle tiptoeing down her spine and worry washing over her, her feet remained rooted to the floor, because there was something about him that didn’t scream danger to her. “Can you see anybody else here?” There could be no mistaking the hard note of annoyance in her voice.

His gaze flicked down to her chest where it paused for a moment before their eyes met again. Or was he checking out her scar? Awareness came over her, and she wished she had something to cover it up with.

And finally, he told her the reason of his intrusion. “I own the house.”

It took her a beat to relay the information to her brain. “Excuse me?”

“I own the house,” he repeated.

Finding her moisturiser bottle, she held on to it as tightly as possible for the sake of holding onto something. She hoped there was going to be an end to this soon. She squared her shoulders and narrowed her eyes. “Not sure what you’re on about, but this house belongs to the late Mrs. Fielding.”

His lips quirked on one side. “I know. She was my grandmother.”

She gasped. “You… you’re—”

“I am indeed.”

#Celebrate my #Citizenship #FREE — “Their Bond Through Jade” —#KindleBargain #kindledeals #AmazonDeals #MFRWAuthor

 I became an Australian Citizen last week and I wanted to celebrate this wonderful occasion with you by giving away copies of one of my books. There’s no favourite book, but “Their Bond through Jade” does come close ♥

Come on over, do the “one click” and let me take you to the wonderful country of New Zealand ♥♥

~~  Their Bond Through Jade ~~ by Iris Blobel

AMAZON US: http://amzn.to/2yZPHSL

♥♦♥  BLURB ♥♦♥

Pikorua, the Maori name for the symbol, is a twist that is said to symbolise the strength of the bond between two people. Mat is certain there is something between Tiffany and him.

When Tiffany Cahill opens the door to the police, memories flood her mind of the previous year and a relationship gone bad. Frightened, she calls her friend, Steve, for help, but instead a stranger answers the phone. Little does Tiffany know how much this New Zealander is going to impact her life, especially after she is assaulted only a few hours later.

Mat Apanui, the owner of a helicopter tour company in New Zealand, can’t ignore the worry in Tiffany’s voice when he answers Steve’s phone. Before he knows it, he is spending most of his business trip to Melbourne with her. Desperate to keep her safe after an attack, he invites her to stay with him in Queenstown, NZ.

With her safety at risk, how will Tiffany overcome her reservations and trust the sexy stranger enough to fly across the Tasman Sea?

♥♦♥  EXCERPT ♥♦♥

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is their-bond-thru-jade-sleeve-1-300x214.jpg

When Tiffany Cahill opened the door and laid eyes on the police officers, memories flooded back of the horrid day the year before when she’d been dragged to the police station. Everything inside her tensed as she checked the lever for the screen door to make sure it was locked. She rubbed her damp palms against her pants.
“Miss Cahill?” the male police officer asked, his dark brown eyes focussing on her.
Scared, she wasn’t able to find her voice, she bit her lip and simply nodded.
“Miss Tiffany Cahill?” the female, and younger, officer asked.
Tiffany nodded again. If she focussed on the officer’s flaming red hair beneath her cap, she wouldn’t have to meet her eyes. But she allowed herself a cautious peek at the officers’ faces.
Their expressions were unreadable, which was worrying.
“I’m Senior Constable Jones. This is Sergeant Harris.” The officer paused for a moment. “We would like to ask you a couple of questions in regard to Thomas Terrill.”
“Who?” Tiffany asked, hardly above a whisper. Her whole body shook, and she knew she had to sit down soon or she’d faint.
“Thomas Terrill,” Jones repeated. “He was up on charges last year for the possession of drugs. The file states you were involved—”
“There’s no way I’ll come with you.” Her voice was louder than intended, panic rising within her. “You can’t make me—”
“Miss Cahill,” Jones said with a calm voice.
“We’re not here to take you with us, but to ask you a few questions,” Sergeant Harris explained, pulling out a little notepad from his shirt pocket, opening it with an expert snap. “Is there anybody with you at home?”
Tiffany frowned as she shook her head. Anxiety raced through the pit of her stomach, and she had to resist the urge to step back to shut the door.
“Anybody you can call?”
His voice was soothing, and when Tiffany met his eyes through the screen door, she noticed something that conveyed trust. And there was a need inside her to trust him, yet every fibre in her told her to not open the door. Never again would she let the police take her to the station and treat her like a criminal.
She bit her lip again, desperate to figure out whom to call, when she replied, “My brother.”
Harris nodded. “Thomas Terrill was charged with possession of drugs last year. You are noted as a witness.” He paused, checked his little notepad, and continued, “He’s also known as Hudson Ford.”
Leaning her head against the door, Tiffany took a deep breath to steady herself.
“Are you okay, Miss Cahill?” Harris asked.
“Please open the door,” Jones requested.
Holding up her hand, Tiffany replied, “I haven’t seen him since last year. I have nothing to do with whatever trouble he’s in.” Her entire body trembled, anxiety rushing through her like a tidal wave. She took another two deep breaths before standing straight to meet Harris’ gaze.
He searched her eyes before he assented with a nod and held out a business card. “We need to talk to you. I can assure you you’re not in trouble, but we need your help.” He squeezed the card into the small gap of the doorframe. “This is my number. Please call in when you have somebody with you, and we can have a talk.”

Happy Wednesday everyone.
I’d like to introduce you to book 2 in the Alinta Bay series
TELL IT TO MY HEART

I hope you’ll enjoy today’s “hook”, which is in Noah’s POV.

Today’s Hook:

“Isn’t she in France?”
“Not anymore, it seems.”
“Shit.”
Graham choked back a snort. “Not the word I’d use, but I agree.”
Noah ignored the subtle chide. “Is that something you’ll work on?”
“Yes.”
Noah hesitated, not sure what else to say. “Okay. I’ll see you soon.” He hung up and snatched a piece of paper from his desk to jot down all the things he had to do in the next twenty-four hours.
Not much time.

BLURB:

Confronted with the choice to care for his friend’s family on the other side of the world or to return to Alinta Bay to be with his own newfound family, how will Noah choose?

Following the death of his grandmother, Noah Fielding returns to Alinta Bay and the first thing — or person — he finds is the next-door neighbour in his nan’s bathroom — naked no less. Still jetlagged, he doesn’t hit it off with Molly at first. Yet, over the next few weeks, as his past uncovers itself bit by bit, she becomes is anchor, his friend, and his lover.

Today’s Hook:

“Fu… Sorry, buddy. You know it’ll take you close to a week to get there this time of the year.”
He chuckled. Yes, he was aware of it. “It’s not that bad. I will need you to fly me to Anchorage and I’ll hitch a flight from there.”
“Shit. Let me check the weather forecast, and I’ll get back to you.”
“Thank you, mate. I owe you.”
“Hey, and I’m sorry about your grandma.”
“Thanks, Dean. It’s important for me to be at the funeral. She was the one who took care of me after Mum left.”
A heavy silence hung between them for a long beat until his friend picked up the conversation again. “No problems, buddy. We’ll make it work.”
“Thanks. I really appreciate it.”
He hung up, checked the weather as well, and hoped he was going to be on his way home the next day. A thought popped into his mind, and he reached for his phone again. Graham answered almost straight away.
“Sorry Graham, I’m not really sure about the time difference, but I have a quick question.”
“Shoot.”
The short answer made Noah believe it must have been some ungodly hour in Australia. “Does my mother know?”
Graham blew out a breath. “No. I’m sorry, but I haven’t tracked her down, yet.”
That surprised him. After all, the lawyer had been able to track him down in Alaska. “Isn’t she in France?”

Today’s Hook:

Switching on the light, he stood and headed into the living area where he threw wood on the fire. He might as well stay awake. After he’d dressed, he made himself a cup of tea and then booted up his laptop. He loaded pictures of Alinta Bay and his lips quirked into a smile as he reminisced about his childhood days. Slowly images of picnics with his grandmother and afternoons at the beach on his surfboard with friends returned, bringing a smile to his lips.
He checked the time. It was half past seven, and he reached for his phone. A few seconds later, his best friend answered the call.
“Buddy, what’s up?”
“Morning, Dean. I’ll need to head back to Australia for a week or two.” Noah had an idea of his friend’s thoughts and added, “My grandma died.”

I hope you’ll enjoy today’s “hook”, which is in Noah’s POV.

Today’s Hook:

Yet, why did the simple four-letter word have such an impact on him?
“I’ll come home.” He paused, hardly able to believe his own words. Was this simply an emotional reaction or something he intended to do indeed? “Give me a couple of days. It’s shit weather over here, with a snow front on its way.”
Graham chuckled. “You’d better get used to the idea of returning with your summer clothes. We’re currently dealing with a heat wave here.”
Rubbing his face with his hand, Noah smiled. He remembered those hot days during which he’d surfed the ocean. “I’m sure I’ll find some shorts and a T-shirt.”
He disconnected after promising Graham to stay in contact and send him the details of his arrival. It was going to be hell to get out of this place this time of the year.
He closed his eyes and tried to remember Alinta Bay. The small coastal town he had grown up in. Tried to remember the house he lived in with his grandmother, but as much as he wracked his memory to come up with something, it eluded him. Except for the bright green carpet along the hall and in his room. He choked back a chuckle. Out of all things, that was stuck to his brain. Of course, he also recalled the old, beaten up car. How could he forget? It’d always been touch and go to get the engine started.
