Release day: Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

30 June 2020

Today is the official release of Let Sleeping Dogs Lie by Cynthia Terelst (ebook and paperback, self-published). Here’s the blurb:

Will one of the treasures they find be each other’s heart?

It’s been five years since Tara walked out of Shepherd’s life without a word. Since then he’s spiralled through drugs, alcohol and empty relationships, with Tara on his mind the whole time. Now he wants to win her back, and what better way to do it than by creating a fake scavenger hunt? He knows she won’t be able to resist.

Tara’s lost enough loved ones and she didn’t want to see Shepherd added to that count. So, when she saw him high at graduation, she did the only thing she could – she walked away. When she’s teamed up with him for a million dollar scavenger hunt, the feelings reignite. For a second chance at love to work, she needs to be brave enough to open up to him, to tell him everything she withheld the first time around.

Shepherd didn’t realise how much winning would mean to Tara. He now needs to come up with $3 million for her foundation before the hunt is over. If he can’t he will need to tell her it’s all fake, and he doesn’t know if he can risk that.

Will secrets destroy them a second time around?

Cynthia dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie is a second-chance romance that revolves around a scavenger hunt in Sydney; a completely fabricated scavenger hunt. When Shepherd created the scavenger hunt his only thought was about being able to spend time with Tara. His plan was for her to fall in love with him again. He didn’t realise that she would have plans for the winnings. And they are not just any plans, they are plans very close to her heart. Now, he has to come up with three million dollars while trying to build a relationship with her, as well as work with her to successfully navigate the clues. I found this a very enjoyable, although difficult book to write. The hardest part was coming up with clues for the scavenger hunt. Just like in real life, the clues needed to provide enough detail for the characters to get to the answer, but still be vague enough so they couldn’t guess straight away.

You can find out more about this book at Cynthia’s website or buy it from Amazon.
