I’m so excited to be hosting for Linda Hamonou. She recently released her new book ‘Harajuku Kiss’! She’s generously provided an excerpt and the trailer for her book. Take a look below at this great content!
At times, life can be so depressing. She is walking her usual recovery tour in Harajuku, finishingwith a crepe, trying to forget that her boyfriend dumped her once again for the week-end… When the unthinkable happens… A boy stops in front of her in the street and kisses her, in the middle of the street, before running away.
Trying to discover more about him, she is dragged into a dangerous game of mystery. A biologist has been murdered and a deadly virus is on the loose. First suspect: the mysterious Harajuku’s stranger.
“It’s 5.19pm, you lost,” Christa said with a large smile.
She was so excited about my misery, it was almost unbearable. Looking at my love life had become a game to her. I sighted wondering why I didn’t get my text message yet, but I couldn’t really let her win on that one. It would have felt like being dumped a second time. I tried to be brave and looked at my phone. Surprisingly, I hadn’t looked at it in a long time. Generally, I would stare at it waiting for the text, but today, after the event of the last night, working on my wave functions seemed really sweet and stress free.
“It’s only 5:17pm on my phone. Would you please be a bit patient?”
Christa stood up and came to sit near me where she stared at my phone even more than I was.
“You’re being weird again,” she said.
“You didn’t ask me once if I thought he was going to text or not,” she said.
I didn’t know what to say to that. If I told her I had other preoccupation, she would ask more questions. Luckily, the ring tone of my phone prevented me to have to say anything.
