Book Excerpt Tour & #Giveaway ~ Interwoven (A Belle Hamilton Novel, Book 1) by Michelle Montebello ~ Contemporary Romance ~ @Michelle_Monteb


A Belle Hamilton Novel, Book 1

Michelle Montebello

Contemporary Romance

About the Book:

Belle Hamilton is a romantic at heart. She's engaged to the love of her life and dreams of marriage, children and a happily ever after. Belle’s world is close to perfect until one afternoon she makes a decision she can't take back.

In the blink of an eye, Belle’s life spirals out of control. She loses everything that is dear to her and is forced to flee to the other side of the world where she meets Andrea, a local bartender from Rome, and develops an unexpected connection with him.

Can they break through the complications of past hurts and a long-distance relationship to make it work or will one terrifying night in Paris end it before it had a chance to begin?

Read an Excerpt:

It came as no surprise to Belle that when Edward first met Ben, he welcomed him into the fold with open arms. Ben had spoken eagerly about his dream of becoming a criminal barrister and his passion for the judicial system. A chink had appeared in Edward’s rigid disposition and his eyes had shone with respect and approval, something Belle had never seen before.

He’d taken Ben under his wing and mentored him. He’d celebrated Ben’s successes as if they were his own—the Bachelor Degree in Law, the passing of the Bar exam, the job at Richardson & Fields. When Belle and Ben had gotten engaged, Edward had nodded his blessing.

Belle had never envied their relationship, had never viewed Ben as a threat. She’d been happy to have some of the pressure lifted off her own shoulders because it finally seemed that Edward approved of something.
Only now, Belle had failed at that too.

He sat at his large mahogany desk, deep in concentration, fingers tapping on laptop keys. A legal pad and pen rested beside him and he was surrounded by bookcases of law volumes.

Grace knocked gently on the door. ‘Edward dear, Belle’s here for afternoon tea.’

Edward peered over his spectacles at her. His greying hair was a little thinner than the last time Belle had seen him but he still carried his austerity with him like a badge. She felt like an awkward teenager perched in the doorway, hands jammed into her jeans pockets.

‘Hi, Dad.’

He regarded her with sharp eyes, then resumed typing. ‘Hello,’ he said gruffly.

There was silence, then Grace spoke again. ‘Edward, we need to have a talk about Ben.’

He continued tapping on the keyboard. ‘And what do you expect I have to say on the matter?’

‘Edward,’ she said pointedly.

He looked up, sighed, and waved them away with a hand. ‘Very well. I’ll finish this and I’ll be out.’

‘Lovely, darling.’
