Let's have some "New Beginnings"
 
 
 

 
"New Beginnings" is set in Australia, in the wonderful State Tasmania.    

 

   
 
I hope you get hooked by this Snippet
 
Blurb:


Twenty-two-year-old Sophie Levesque has been guardian to eight-year-old sister Mia since their mother's death a few years ago. Luck comes their way when they inherit a small house in Hobart. Problem is though, they don't know or have never heard of Clara Bellinger, the testator, and Sophie is afraid it's all been a mistake.
As Mia settles well into her new school and life in general, Sophie is not only occupied by her search of what connected her to Clara, but also her new studies and the two men, who suddenly have become part of her daily life - Mark O'Connor, the lawyer representing Clara's estate, and Zach, the hunk from across the road.
 
 
Today's hook :-)


“You’re Mia’s guardian?”

"Yes,” she replied and gently placed a kiss on her sister’s forehead.
He nodded, and by the way he stared ahead, Sophie knew he was pondering her answers.
“I'm Mark.”
“Pardon me?”
Through the mirror, she saw his eyes focused on them. “My name is Mark. Nobody actually calls me Mr. O’Connor. It feels like my dad is around when I hear that term.”
A smile twitched at the corner of Sophie’s mouth, but she remained silent.
“Ever been to Hobart?”
She shook her head.
Mark concentrated on the traffic again. He did a couple of turns, and Sophie’s excitement grew stronger. Deep down inside she hoped for the house to be close by. It was a beautiful area. So much green around. So many beautiful and colourful gardens. With a pounding heart, she was glued to the window, her palms moist with sweat.
And then he stopped in front of number sixty-four.

An interesting introduction to these two sisters. Their relationship is gorgeous, and they care for each other fiercely. Set in Southern Tasmania, what a wonderful place to start a whole new life and find out just how your life got to be the way it was and begin to heal. I enjoyed the story and the setting very much.

4 Stars:
Sophie and Mark are an irresistible match from the beginning. While getting closer and connected to them individually as the story progressed, I couldn't help but want them to be together. This author has a way of endearing her characters and it is easy to fall in love with them. An intriguing story with emotion, love and hope. A very enjoyable read! I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
