About the Author
Melanie Moreland lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-six-plus years. 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 at a local university and for its football team. Her job, while demanding, is rewarding as she cheers on her team to victory. While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly 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 also enjoys travelling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip. Melanie delights in 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 storylines to her, often with a large glass of wine keeping her company.

“She’s funny, cooks like a dream, and I enjoy her company.”
“Through the barrier of a fence.”
Told from Nathan's perspective, his and Kourtney's relationship is truly one of friends-to-lovers and as opposed to being overbearing and self-centred as many male POV's often are, Nathan was the opposite; a funny, sensitive guy with an aloofness and protectiveness that was nothing short of sweet. Yes at times it was a little on the saccharine side, but if you can accept this for the lovely romance it is then this matters not and I became completely absorbed in their journey. This a couple who have secrets and painful difficult pasts, are so easy to relate to, grow as the story progresses and bring out the best in one another.
Over the Fence is the first novel I have read by Melanie Moreland and I will certainly be seeking out more from her. Her writing style grabbed from the opening page and held tight throughout. This is a book I could quite happily pick up and read all over again.
Copy received courtesy of Promo Star Services for an honest and unbiased opinion.
Over the Fence is the first book I have read by Melanie Moreland, and on the whole it was a pretty enjoyable read. I think the main thing that stood out for me is that this is a book about two regular people, who although both have pretty unhappy pasts are both living relatively normal lives. It was nice to get back into the real world if you know what I mean, and go through this couples ups and downs with them.
As I said the main story line between this couple is built on their pasts, and what starts as an innocent flirtation between neighbors across their garden fence soon escalates into a full blown relationship after Kourtney receives an unexpected and unwelcome visit from a family member, which pushes Nat into full protective-guy mode.
”We’ve become fence friends.”
It soon becomes clear that all is not well with Kourtney, and Nathan goes out of his way to try and rebuild the confidence and self-esteem of a woman who has had it systematically battered and bruised for most of her life, but he neglects to fully disclose the less savory aspects of his past to her and as is always the case with secrets, the longer you wait to tell them, the harder it becomes.
The main reason this book didn’t hit a higher rating for me is that I found that pretty much every obstacle and problem that was thrown, dropped or just cropped up in this couples path to true love was resolved without any real conflict or issue, everything was dealt with pretty amenably, and forgotten about. There were several plot points that could have added a little more drama if expanded further (view spoiler), and believe me I am not one for erroneous drama, but the story could have done with a little more, everything just felt… nice for wont of a better word.
She entered my life so quietly, yet had such a profound impact on it.
That-said, Over the Fence wasn’t a struggle to read, the writing was immersive and the plot and characters in the main were well developed and likeable, and the epilogue was absolutely adorable. I would happily look to read more from the author that’s for sure.
