Over The Fence
by Melanie Moreland
Date of Publication: August 4, 2015


There are so many ways to fall in love in today’s world. Besides the usual bars and blind dates, you can meet someone from any part of the world via the computer. The scope is endless. Possibilities abound, if that’s what you want.

But what happens when you aren’t searching for love, and it shows up—way closer than you ever expected?

Two neighbors—strangers— with one thing in common—they share a fence.
But is that the only thing they share?

Nathan Fraser lives a solitary life, never letting anyone get too close. It’s safer that way.
Kourtney Whyte hides from the world and behind her work, too afraid to really live her life to the fullest. Rejection is what she knows best.

But one night, the sound of her soft voice and the tantalizing aroma of her evening meal, prove too enticing for Nathan to ignore.

So begins their unconventional relationship—talking, learning, texting, and gradually opening up to one another, all over the fence.

That is, until the day Nathan braves the high fence to protect Kourtney from her past, and changes everything forever.

Can they move forward together, without the buffer of the fence?

Or will their pasts prove to be too much of a barrier?


***4.5 I'm nuts over you Stars***

This book had it all
-- a subject and heroine so close to my own life
-- funny banter
-- a beautiful love story
-- an awesome, sensitive and loving guy
-- only a bit of angst

and finally...

-- a wonderful lesson learned all around

I have always been a fan of Melanie's writing and when she approached me to read her newest...there was no way I was going to turn her down.

Now normally Melanie's books are about dark, brooding men whose souls are damaged where a woman comes along and adds the light to their lives.

Over the Fence was so different from what I'm used to reading from Melanie but, OMG, I was so impressed. This story delves into a woman with low self esteem and a comical man who breaks her of this affliction. But they both end up having problems with their past and are hiding behind a fence both literally and figuratively.

They start out sharing snarky comments back and forth through the wall which separates them...but Nathan doesn't give up on Kourtney and their relationship builds. Nathan slowly peels the protective barrier Kourtney has placed to protect herself from people like her father and brother.

Things don't go so easy though when Kourtney's past seems to catch up to her and will Nathan be enough to save her from drowning again in self-disappointment?

About the Author

Melanie Moreland lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her husband and four children. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.

Known as the quiet one with the big laugh, Melanie works for the sporting teams of a local university. Her (box) office job, while demanding, is rewarding as she cheers on her team to victory.

While seriously addicted to coffee, and somewhat challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties and socialize, and also enjoys traveling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.

Melanie delights in writing a good romance story with some bumps along the way, but is a true believer in happily ever after. When her head isn’t buried in a book, it is bent over a keyboard, furiously typing away as her characters dictate their creative story lines to her even more inspired tales, for all to enjoy.
