Love Under Construction
After the loss of Grace's mother and father and her first love, Grace throws herself into her teaching profession. Other than a few close friends made at the middle school that she taught at, and a few college friends, this was now Grace's world. After the breakup of Grace's one and only love, Grace vowed to never open her heart again to love, heartache, and pain, which she knew would only lead to disappointment.
This was Grace's plan, but little did she know that life and fates' plans were not always aligned with our hearts. Grace was unaware that fate would place Joe Peterson in her path to reopen her heart and to teach her to love and trust again. Joe Peterson was a project construction manager who swore off love because he was too busy, not building his life relationship, only buildings. When Grace and Joe's paths cross, the only project Joe wanted to manage was him and Grace's Love Under Construction.
After falling head over heels in love with Grace, Joe found that the property that he needed to build on was owned by Grace Pearson. He was now faced with the dilemma of how to go about getting Grace to sell her property so that he could advance his career. Joe knew that to gain her property was to lose her heart, and he desperately needed them both.
Fate placed these two hearts on the same paths that twist and turn, but only because many years ago, Grace's mother and father decided to settle in a wonderful little town in Connecticut along the Long Island Sound. Grace's brother also played a part in fate's story. Grace's brother went away to college and returned to the wonderful little town in Connecticut. Grace's brother was now the municipal judge.
Grace Pearson had one plan when she went back to her hometown, and that was to sell her mother and father's estate and return to Florida and become the principal of the school where she was a teacher for five years. She wanted to move on with her life, but as fate would have it, she fell in love with her brother's best friend, who turned out to be the project manager that wanted to buy her property and tear it down to build a casino. Joe Peterson found himself in a dilemma; he had fallen in love at first sight with Grace Pearson. He needed her property to advance his career, but he wondered, how could he gain one and lose the other? Joe needed them both!
