Chapter 1 - New Beginnings

Grace Jackson put her last box down on the floor and grinned at her new apartment.  Sweet gig when your new boss lets you rent the apartment above his restaurant for next to nothing.  She’d be able to pay off the last of her credit card debt within six months at this rate.
Then she’d do what she’d been dreaming of for the last few years, save up for two weeks in Bora Bora.  She closed her eyes and sighed at the image of herself lying on a beach, next to her own private grass hut with a sweet, fruity drink in her hand.  She scrunched her eyes and wondered if there was anyone lying next to her in her daydream.  She sighed and opened her eyes, laughing at herself.  Knowing her luck with men, not likely.
Her friends back in Seattle insisted she was just romantically delayed and that someday she would blossom into a temptress. Grace caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror on the hallway wall and paused for a moment. Yeah, that was never going to happen. She had shoulder length honey brown hair with generous blond highlights.  She had large, blue eyes and a sprinkling of pale freckles across her nose and cheeks. She had an athletic, slim figure due to her long hours in the kitchen and her long walks with her dog. She was your basic girl next door with a touch of spice. She smiled a little, liking herself.  If no one else did, then that was their loss.
            Grace opened the windows of her little apartment to let the cool, spring breeze push out the stale air.  She could tell the apartment had been empty for sometime now, which was a shame.  It was an awesome apartment. Two bedrooms, one large bathroom with a shower and a bath and a surprisingly nice kitchen with granite countertops and new white cabinets.  The family room wasn’t huge but her comfy couch looked nice in front of the big screen TV where she loved to watch Top Chef and Chopped and all of her other cooking shows she devoured whenever she had the time.
            She reached down and patted the head of her dog.  “Hey, baby,” she said with a grin, kneeling down to rub behind her Siber-poo’s ears.  She’d gotten the Siberian Husky, Poodle mix as a birthday present for herself last year.  The name on her dog tag read, Rosemary, but she just called her Baby.
            Baby licked her face and glanced around the apartment, as if to shrug and say, it would do for now.
            “Wow, you’re kind of a snob, huh?” she asked with a laugh and stood up.  “Give me one more hour and then we’ll go for a walk.  My new boss wants to meet downstairs for dinner at seven, but until then we can explore. Sound good?”
            Baby barked happily and wandered off to sniff every corner of her new territory.  Grace dove into making her apartment a home.  An hour later, she studied her new space and sighed in relief.  It felt good. She had made the right decision to relocate to Fircrest. Seattle was fantastic, but she had needed a change and being in a new place was no big deal to her. She was good at making herself at home no matter where she was.  She’d had a lot of practice as a kid.  Being raised by the wild and crazy Jocelyn Jackson meant she’d had no choice. It was sink or swim with her mom. And thank heavens she’d learned how to swim fast.

            “Come on, Baby,” she said as she reached for the leash.  “Time to let Fircrest know who’s boss,” she said with a smile and bent down to clip on the leash. Baby woofed softly in a very patronizing way and Grace laughed.  It was good to have someone around to keep her humble.
