Get hooked on "New Beginnings" 15/07/15 #MFRWHook #amreading #99cents

 Happy "Book Hook" Day
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

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

Mark took the suitcase from the boot of his car and walked towards the house, opened the gate, and placed the girls’ belongings next to the fence. He turned, and Sophie made no effort in hiding the struggle with emotions.
“That’s it. This is Forty-Six Chestnut Avenue,” he told them.
It was all too much for her, and she sat down onto her suitcase and took everything in. She stared at the old brick-built English cottage house. A small path ahead of her led to two worn out steps and up to the arched entrance. Tucking a strand of hair behind her ear, her gaze moved over to the windows. Multi-pane windows with shutters and flower boxes in front. Beautiful. Though the flowers seemed long dead. The garden was true to the cottage style, but looked wild and unattended. It was in need of a lot of work. She looked up and saw a chimney and instantly thought about cold winter evenings in front of the open fire. She’d heard that Hobart was very cold during winter. And then she just cried. Emotions that had bottled up over the years surfaced, and she wasn’t able to hold back any longer.

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.
