BLOG TOUR ~ Over The Fence by Melanie Moreland

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? 



I LOVE reading, with a passion – I read every day, every chance I get, but it can feel at times as if one read is kinda blurring in to another – don’t get me wrong, the books I read are generally good stories but for one reason or another they don’t seem to have that thing/spark that leaves a lasting impression on me…. BUT THEN every once in a while you get the chance to read some real wee gems that throw you on an emotional rollercoaster ride and stay with you once you’ve finished them – lately I’ve been thrilled to find 3 such books!!!

OVER THE FENCE by Melanie Moreland is one of these books – I FLOVED it and it will be a re-read for me time and again!!!
I didn’t want to put the kindle down for even a minute and was pulled in to the story by the feels, character banter, fun, attraction, romance and sweetness of the story! It was at times sad, touching and, for me personally, kinda thought provoking. All of these things together ensured that OVER THE FENCE was a truly fantastic story!


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.

The connection between Nat & Kourt and the feeling that this thing between them could become more, jumped off the page from the beginning.. The direction and turn their friendship/relationship takes was fab to read and there were a few things that had held each of them back from previously trying to get close to someone that you hoped they would be able to overcome to see if they could be more than ‘fence-friends’.

I loved that the book was mainly from Nate’s POV and how even though it was centered around 2 broken and lost people who seem to be making a special connection when they’d gotten to the point that they believed it could/would never happen, it wasn’t too down or bleak – they were fun as well as complex and hurting – gods, I adored their text conversations – they were quick witted, flirty and so funny!!!

This is a fabulous book and one I definitely recommend and I give it a solid 5* rating!!!

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.
