Title: Tell it to my Heart
Author: Iris Blobel
Genre: Australian Contemporary Romance (Small Coastal Town)
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. Molly Reid had the world at her feet, happily married with a young son … until a tragic car accident took everything away from her. With her heart broken, she moves to Alinta Bay to escape the memories of the past. Her peaceful existence, however, is interrupted after a heavy storm floods her house and she temporarily moves into her recently deceased neighbour’s house next door. When Noah’s friend and partner goes missing during a routine flight, Noah returns to Alaska to help, but will he come back for Molly?
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.”
