Interview with Iris Blobel

Why did you write this book?
The story is set in Hobart, the capital of Tasmania, the most southern state in Australia. A most beautiful place. I went there a few years back and imagined how it would be to live in this city, how to adapt as a “non-local”, and bit by bit I wrote the story of two sisters moving there. Obviously, I added a little romance into the story as well – so I added Mark and Zach.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Crime and romance
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Jack Reacher
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’ve just finished a book which is set partly in Melbourne, partly in New Zealand. I loved writing the story and re-visiting the places we went to when we travelled through NZ last year.
Please tell us about your latest book.
The chance to start life all over with the help of a stranger.
Twenty-two-year-old Sophie Levesque has been guardian to her eight-year-old sister Mia since their mother’s death a few years ago, and it hasn’t been easy. Luck comes their way when they inherit a small house in Hobart. Problem is, though, they don’t know and have never heard of Clara Bellinger, the testator. Settling into their new life, Sophie is still afraid it’s all a mistake.
Mark O’Connor, attorney in Hobart and the bearer of the good news for Sophie and Mia, curses himself for the lack of information about the testator. However, researching the questions gives him an opportunity to see Sophie again, and the more time he spends with the two, the more he realises that his life is missing something. And it’s not his casual lover Linda.
But then there’s Zach, Sophie’s sexy neighbour from across the road… and a very good friend of Clara’s.
Will unravelling the mystery unravel Sophie and Mark’s promise of a future?

As Hannah juggles the attentions of the two men now firmly

really know about Jan? What is Jan hiding from everyone? And what did her
grandmother—whose house it once was—hide from the world?
As if Hannah doesn’t have enough mysteries to solve, her
best friend Rachel enlists her help in solving her marital crisis, while her
