Would you give up your job? Money? Housing? A promising relationship with a bottle of wine? How far would you go?
The heroine does all of the above and much more to achieve her fantasy of owning a castle. With a pastry shop inside! Doesn’t it sound romantic? The only problem is that the castle—unlike those in romance novels—has a leaky roof, bulging walls, and no windows. Melusine walks its hallways from time to time. Moreover, the tower looks like it is about to collapse. To make her dream come true, the heroine has one tiny, little thing left to do—fix the castle!
