Meet Julie:

She's spent some good times meeting with her book club in the old mansion. But now the city is going to tear it down. The bulldozers are destroying the guest house as she comes up with an idea. Maybe she can save the old mansion by getting a petition online? With enough people knowing about what was at stake, maybe she could work a miracle. 

Her blog and petition get the attention of the young, entrepreneur Peter Mason. He manages his family business restoring historical buildings and turning them into historic hotels. He seems to be the knight in shining armor she has been waiting for.

Meet Peter:

Obsessed with the business he runs with his father, he doesn't have time for relationships. Mostly, he has a chance to go after a bit of skirt on his own terms. But something strange starts to happen to him. He can't get Julie out of his mind. It's new territory, and between the distraction of her being his new assistant, he can't get anything done. The only thing left to do is include her in his business life. 

But being attracted to your boss can be trouble. Especially when you want to keep your summer job. Can she negotiate the baggage of her feelings for Peter and her deceased boyfriend? Especially when Peter's ex-fiancé arrives on the scene.

They have to overcome their past loves and baggage to finally see the best thing standing in front of them, each other. But letting go might be the hardest part.

Did you mean intricate (finely and complexly detailed) rather than innate (having a natural ability or being gifted at a certain skillset)?

Ohhh, who's this Peter fella? Imagine if Julie wasn't who she was and Peter flies all the way to her to find she's actually Barb?

Great start. I really felt like I was walking through the house with the heroine. I love stories featuring old houses and I'm curious to find out why someone so young is so attached to a house. It must be an interesting place.
