#BookSpotlight - "Journey to her Dreams" by Iris Blobel

Iris Blobel’s “Journey to her Dreams”

“It’s not the money that makes you rich.
It’s the knowledge that the other person loves you and is always there for you,
no matter what. That makes you content and, therefore, rich.”

Thank you, Amber, for having me on your blog today to share my latest release with your readers. 
JOURNEY TO HER DREAMS is my second book I’ve written and the first book that was picked up by a publisher. I was on cloud nine! It was a journey to my dreams.
I love the story, it’s close to my heart and I’m happy to have been able to self publish it after a few wonderful years with a publisher. The story touches on everything that is close to me. It’s set in Tasmania (the most southern state here in Australia) and Ireland – two places in this world I love. It deals with dreams, a fascinating subject I spend many hours discovering more. And where else to have the answer to a dream to be found in Ireland, the land of fairies, leprechauns, and shamrocks. The perfect setting. The story has two timelines, at the time it was a massive challenge for me as a new author, but I think I did well. But I also included the importance of family and friendship. Something so important in my life, it’s part of all of my books! AND … it’s all about romance. Actually, two romances! And both women travel long distances to find the right man in their lives.
I hope you will give the book a chance. One reader wrote: “Beautifully told through vivid imagery, the characters come to life and stick with you long after reading it. Highly recommend!”


There must be a reason for her dreams...
Hollie Anderson, a young woman living in Tasmania, is content with life, even more so since she has met Jeremy. However, she has been having a recurrent dream that impacts her daily life, as well as her relationship, a dream that eventually takes her on a journey to Ireland.
Samantha Shaughnessy enjoys the success as Head of Advertising for a popular magazine in the Irish capital Dublin. Married to Padraic, she thinks she loves her husband, but when she meets Hollie under unusual circumstances, she needs to face the truth--and not just about her marriage.
When both women meet and find they share an unexpected tie to the past, will they finally be able to move on into relationships with the men they love? 


Hollie stared at the sliding door but didn’t dare to move any closer. So, this was Dublin. She had been glued to the window since the plane started descending. It didn’t appear all that different from Tasmania. There were fields upon fields of green paddocks, divided by hedges and rocks, sometimes in even squares and sometimes, it seemed, just randomly. She even spotted a few double-decker buses from way above. Overwhelmed by the thought that she was about to set foot on Irish soil, she hesitated.
“Hollie. What are you waiting for?” Davo was already outside, but his movement set off the sensor and the door opened in front of her.
She shrugged. “I don’t know.”
He came back in, took her hand, and led her outside. “I’ll be there all the way. We’ll find whatever is worrying you. I promise.”
