This week’s hook …

IN THE SHADOWS OF A LIE

by Iris Blobel

For the next ten minutes, she wandered through the house and checked the doors and windows. The house was beautiful. The owner had decorated it in a tasteful mountain log cabin style. It had been built and primarily furnished of wood. And she loved it. Most of the spacious rooms incorporated a window bench to enjoy the view and a cosy little bathroom. The fireplace was the centrepiece of the living room … and suddenly she thought of the possibility of a cold night ahead, but with some relief, she remembered seeing a panel heater in her room. She needed to check it before going to bed.

After her tour of the house, Lani returned to the kitchen for her belated cup of tea and then meandered upstairs where she found another two rooms. Loft rooms. She strode over to the window and with a full moon shining bright, she was treated to a memorable view of the mountains in the distance. The snow glittered like diamonds under the starry night, dancing on the snow. It was hypnotising.

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?

IN THE SHADOWS OF A LIE

by Iris Blobel

Lani watched Dylan leave, still in two minds about him. He’d triggered all kinds of thoughts within her. She visualised his good boy looks with his short blond hair, stunning blue eyes, and yes, she had to admit, a very sexy, impish smile. The blue shirt fit snugly, even untucked over his faded cargo pants. True, she definitely had been the reason for their awkward conversation, and as she rubbed the fatigue out of her eyes, she justified her actions by the fact that she hadn’t expected to come to an empty bed and breakfast without a host. The idea of being on her own in a decent sized house somewhere in New Zealand didn’t fill her with great confidence either, not to mention how much it unnerved. Who could blame her for being somewhat out of sorts? She rubbed her arms and, overcome by frustration, let out a little scream before she headed to the front door to lock it. Who the hell would come this far to steal something? Then again, who wouldn’t? No nosy neighbours to watch the house. She gave another irritated groan, cursing Dylan for putting the seed of worry into her head.

by Iris Blobel

“I’ll be here at eight o’clock. Please lock the doors after me.”

Brows raised, she gaped after him. A snort escaped his lips. He shouldn’t tease her, and he wasn’t sure why he said it, most likely a childish payback for not telling him the reason for her visit.

And as he walked to his car, he shook his head, muttering, “I’m turning into a grumpy old man.” Because he knew, she’d had every right not to tell him.

by Iris Blobel

Eyes wide, she asked, “What’s that supposed to mean?”

How was he meant to answer? He didn’t know, so he left the room without replying.

“Wait!”

He blew out a breath and stopped at the touch of her hand on his arm.

“I was taught manners, but I’m dead on my feet. It’s been a long day and this…” She waved her hand a little. “…is not what I expected.” Removing her hand from him, she continued. “Will you stay for breakfast tomorrow morning?”

Slowly, he raised his left brow. “Wasn’t part of the deal, but my curiosity is piqued.”

Her soft laugh was nothing more than a faint sound, but pure. Not only had she roused his curiosity by wanting to see Toby, but she intrigued him as well. Something about her screamed determination and strength, because truth be told, she’d handled the situation well, considering she was going to stay on her own in a big house, in the middle of nowhere in a foreign country.

“I’ll be here at eight o’clock. Please lock the doors after me.”

by Iris Blobel

Dylan rubbed his chin. “The only people living around here are me, about five hundred metres down the road, and Tobias Linaker.”

A hint of red crept into her cheeks, but she remained silent.

“You have to be kidding me. You’re here to see Toby?” He did his best to suppress his laughter but failed miserably.

“I can’t see anything funny in what I’ve said or in this case haven’t said.”

“May I ask the reason you want to see Toby?”

Lani stepped to the bed and reached for her bag. “I’d rather you don’t.”

He dragged a hand through his hair, curiosity growing as to why she would want to visit his neighbour. Putting his interest aside, he offered, “I have a spare ute you can use for the next few days, so you won’t be stuck up here. I’ll bring it by tomorrow.” He turned to leave but stopped. “And good luck with Toby, eh. You’ll need it.”

Dylan placed her bag on the bed and turned to meet her gaze. “I’m sorry this is awkward. I didn’t mean to be nosy but helpful. After all you’re going to be stuck without a vehicle.” He checked the room. “Anyway, your towels are on the bed. The bathroom is over there. Here are the keys. TV is in the main room at the front including a computer. I believe the password is stuck on the screen. My number is…” Dylan pulled out a card. “On here. Call me any time.”

She sucked in her lips as she reached for his card. “I’ll be fine, but thanks.”

Her voice was soft, but still held a lot of hesitation. She rubbed her eyes with the palms of her hands. It must have been a long day for her.

“No offense, but I don’t believe you will be. I’m sure there’s some food around, but whoever you’re looking for, you will need some sort of vehicle.”

“He’s living around here. According to the map no further than a kilometre or two.”

by Iris Blobel

“What on earth are you doing in this part of the world without a car?” he asked, both out of curiosity and to keep the slow conversation going. She must’ve been exhausted after not only the bus ride, but also the hike to the house.

“I’m hoping to meet someone.”

“In Lake Tekapo?”

“Sort of.”

He stopped and glanced over his shoulder. “Sort of?”

“He lives up here somewhere.”

“Who?”

“The person I’m hoping to meet.”

Swapping the bag over into his other hand, he kept walking until they reached her room. “May I ask who you’re hoping to meet around here?”

“I’d rather you wouldn’t.”

“I came by bus.”

That he didn’t expect. “The bus stop is about five to six kilometres down the road.”

“The driver was kind enough to let me hop off at the intersection.”

Dylan chuckled. “That must’ve been Jack.”

She stared at him, evidently not following his thoughts.

He scratched the back of his head. “So, let me do the host thingy. Teddy said, you’ll be the only guest until Monday, so you’ll have the house to yourself until Sunday. I’ll fix you breakfast, and if you like I can offer dinner as well, but that’d be at my place, which is another kilometre down the road.”

She looked around the kitchen, probably not was she expected. Even though Teddy and Mae didn’t charge much for a night, Dylan assumed that a guest would at least expect someone to be around.

“Let me show you to your room.” He turned to walk down the hall and spotted a backpack. “Yours?”

She nodded, and he picked it up.

With a quick shrug of his shoulder, he explained. “Teddy had to go to Christchurch on short notice and asked me to look after you.”

She arched one of her brows, and damn if that reaction didn’t annoy him, despite the fact that she had a right to it. But it in all fairness, it wasn’t his fault. It’d been all a bit on short notice, and he’d been happy to help.

“Sorry for being late. Had a flat tyre out of all days.”

Hesitantly, she moved forward and took his hand. “I’m Lani Dekker.”

“Where’s your car?”

She stepped back, clearly still unsure of the situation. Who could blame her? She had booked a room in a bed and breakfast somewhere in the mountains of New Zealand, only to find a stranger instead of her host. Not that she would’ve known Teddy, but at least they would’ve communicated in some way or another.

“I came by bus.”

Dylan Harper’s mouth edged up into a smile as he sauntered to the centre of the kitchen. “May I assume you’re Ms Dekker?”

He took her in. She was dressed for the local environment with her cargo pants, hiking boots, and a warm puffy jacket. Her wild, curly hair was held back in a ponytail with a white scrunchie. Her hair was an intense dark shade he’d never seen before. Her beautiful emerald green eyes were equally intriguing. He couldn’t help but be drawn in by them, even more so via the small distance between him and her. It didn’t go past him, though, that the very same eyes reflected a mix of worry and hesitation with every step he moved closer to her.

He held out his hand. “I’m Dylan. Teddy Larson’s neighbour.”

Her eyes widened.
