The Last Curtain Call

by Cynthia Chow

Turner Construction head Melanie Turner is finally working on her most important project; the remodel of her newly purchased 1911-built home in Oakland, California. Once owned by Mel’s family and gifted to her by her fiancé Landon Demetrius, the couple is now negotiating the relationship-testing challenge of a home renovation. The battle of wallpaper versus paint gets put on pause when Mel’s foreman discovers a hidden room in their attic. While Mel knows that a sealed-off room rarely hides something good, this time she discovers a treasure-trove sure to win the fashion-loving contractor’s heart.
