Thank you, Cathy, for having me on your blog to share my latest release.
It’s been quite a year so far, hasn’t it? Challenging and sometimes scary, however, I think we hear enough of that on TV and on the internet. A lot of hope rests on April, the start of spring in the northern hemisphere, the start of autumn here in Australia. Did you know that April is based on the Latin word aprilis, meaning “to open”?  I think it’s perfect in the sense of we should open up to hope again that the world will fight through the current health scare, being able to open doors again soon to let families, friends, and neighbours back into the house after weeks of isolation, being able keep open the doors to what we learnt while we were stuck in our home, the fun we suddenly had because we weren’t in a rush, the joy of discovering new talents, new loves, and the contentment of knowing there’s always a way. It’s uncomfortable right now with all the constraints, but imagine the doors being opened once everything’s over, the wave of joy rushing through us all to hug our family and friends, the humble pleasure to have a cup of tea or coffee at the café in the main street, near the lake or the beach, the excitement to celebrate again with a group of people, and I even have an inkling that most of us will even like the idea of returning to work.
Let’s embrace April, let’s hope it’ll open the doors to a wonderful and exciting future.

Title: Tell it to my Heart

Series: Alinta Bay

Author: Iris Blobel

Publisher: self published

Release date: 17 April 2020

Cover Artist: Amy Queau

Genre: Australian Contemporary Romance

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?

Excerpt:

She turned the water off and grabbed her towel before stepping out of the shower. It’d been another lovely, but hot day, and she was grateful Mrs. Fielding’s lawyer left the power and water on. Apparently, he’d heard back from her grandson, who was due to arrive in a few days. Sadness went through her that Mrs. Fielding’s own grandson hadn’t come to her funeral. She had always talked with so much love about him, and he didn’t even have the respect to show up. She was going to give him a good piece of her mind when he’d arrive.

As she 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?”
