Inner Beauty – The Synopsis
One night, she meets Mike in a local bar. He’s funny, sweet, and seems absolutely perfect. Seduced by his romantic nature, Gwen goes home with Mike to the Victorian era mansion he is remodeling.
To her surprise, a relationship blossoms. One, two, three perfect dates shortly follow, with an amazing chemistry between the two. Gwen has long red nails, and Mike practically worships them, as she enjoys his home and rare wine.
Gwen is smitten. Her only small complaint is that she sleeps poorly in Mike’s house, due to strange scratching noises at night. Mike & Gwen chalk it up to animals in the attic… Plus, it’s an old wooden house, and it’s settling after all.
The perfect man, the perfect wine, and a house to die for… it’s as though she’s in a perfect dream where time stands still… in Mike’s house, their love will last forever. If she can just get past all the remodeling he’s doing to the place.
But Gwen will quickly learn that with Inner Beauty, it’s what’s inside that counts…
