This week’s Hook …
IN THE SHADOWS OF A LIE
by Iris Blobel
He reached for his phone and saw he’d missed two calls from Teddy. Ignoring them for the moment, he scratched the back of his neck. He’d failed as a bed and breakfast host. In fact, he hadn’t been good at all. His simple task had been to ask Lani to fill in the guest book and grab a copy of her driver’s licence. He’d been in such a rush after struggling with the flat tyre and so taken aback by his body’s reaction to her. Reaction? It hadn’t been a reaction but surprise. In all honesty, he’d expected a middle-aged woman, although he had no idea why. Seeing Lani, who was probably in her early twenties, with some out-of-control red hair, and green eyes, had thrown him. Those emerald eyes that had followed his every move as he showed her around.
Goddamn it. He didn’t want to think of Teddy’s guest as attractive. Not to mention, one who was here to see his friend Toby.
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?
