Over the Fence by Melanie Moreland

Title: Over the Fence
Author: Melanie Moreland
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 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?

In a world where looks are so important and often impact our first impressions, Over the Fence is a refreshing change of pace.  Nathan and Kourtney come to know and care for each other before ever laying eyes on the other even though they live just feet, even inches, apart.  That alone had my heart won over but as you continue reading you begin to wish you had a fence in your own life once in a while, because the fence might not be so much of keeping the world out but giving you the freedom to let the person within the space to shine.  When that speaks true for both Nathan and Kourtney then maybe they will find that piece of  themselves they never knew was missing.  I can honestly say that there isn't a rating scale out there that goes high enough to fully express just how much I love and recommend this book or the author.  If you have not read Melanie Moreland before, this is a great one to start with because the powerful emotions Over the Fence invoke will knock you on your ass in all the best ways imaginable.


Author Bio:
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.
