Release day: Love Under Construction
Today is the official release of Love Under Construction by Danyelle Ferguson (Indulgence Row, book 2) (print and ebook, Wonderstruck Books). Here’s the blurb:
Charlee was angry …
What do you do when your boss makes someone else the lead on a big renovation project that should rightfully be yours? You quit. On second thought, that might not be the best idea, but Charlee Jackson has never been one for second thoughts. Instead, she lands a big contract of her own. She’s jumping into her new life—work boots, tool belt and all. Now she just needs to form a company and hire contractors and buy supplies and get an office … and not fall in love with her former boss’s son. Yeah. Definitely not that last one.
Peter was torn …
You can’t date someone who works for you, but now that his dad let Charlee walk out the door, Peter Elliot is considering his options. Charlee was their top renovation expert, his best friend’s sister, and the only thing that made the drudgery of running a large construction business bearable. But how do you date a competitor, especially one your father is trying to drive out of business? It would be stupid to make your dad angry right before he retires and hands the company over to you. Right?
When Charlee and Peter are scheduled to work on the same Indulgence Row house, their feelings and priorities are put to the test. They need to make a choice, and they better be quick about it, because the whole mixture is curing fast and threatening to crumble to pieces.
Danyelle dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
Charlee’s story came to me during a long driving trip. I was singing along with my iPod when ‘Brighter Than the Sun’ by Colbie Caillat came on and the idea of a man and woman who had been friends since childhood popped into my head. Then I wondered, what would change in their lives to make them realise they weren’t just friends, but they also loved each other? I put ‘Brighter Than the Sun’ on repeat, pulled out my voice recorder and started brainstorming. Charlee came to me clearly—a strong woman who worked in the construction field, who loved renovations, returning the old back to something beautiful. But Charlee is also big-hearted and involved in the local women’s shelter, helping the ladies there rediscover their self-worth through mini-renovation classes. Throw in a touch of pride and a few of her own insecurity issues and the heroine of Love Under Construction was born. I hope you enjoy Charlee and Peter’s story as much as I do.
