My Review:

Melissa Ferguson is an engaging writer. Her stories flow seamlessly throughout. This romantic comedy had several laugh out loud moments, as well as several moments where you are shaking your head wondering what in the world is going on. Bree and Chip hit it off on their very first meeting, but then things quickly get convoluted between them. Not all is light hearted and funny in this book, so please don't pick it up thinking it is all fun and games. There are several pretty serious issues going on in the background. All in all it is a quick-read, will satisfy your funny bone if you are looking for something funny, touches very briefly on faith issues, and is a very clean read. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes humorous romantic stories. Thank you to Thomas Nelson and Net Galley for the opportunity to read this book. I was not required to give a positive review, all opinions are entirely my own.



Bestselling author Melissa Ferguson’s latest rom-com proves that good fences make good neighbors—and that sometimes love and hate share a backyard. 

Bree Leake doesn’t want to be tied down. She’s had more jobs than she can count, and she plans to move as soon as the curtains fall on her less-than-minor stage role at The Barter—the oldest live performance theater in the US. But just when it’s time to move on again, Bree’s parents make her an offer: hold steady for a full year, and they will give her the one thing she's always wanted—her grandmother’s house. Her dreams are coming true . . . until life at the theater throws her some curve balls.

And then there’s Chip McBride—her handsome and infuriating next-door neighbor.

Chip just might be the only person whose stubborn streak can match Bree’s. She would move heaven and earth to have him off her cul-de-sac and out of her life, but according to the bargain she’s struck, she cannot move out of her house and away from the man who’s making her life miserable. So begins Bree’s obsessive new mission: to drive Chip out of the neighborhood—and fast.

Bree isn't the only one who’s a tad competitive, and Chip is more than willing to fight fire with fire. But as their pranks escalate, the line between love and hate starts to blur—and their heated rivalry threatens to take a hilarious, heartwarming, and romantic new turn.
A sweet romantic comedy that can be read as a standalone.
Book length: 77,000 words.
