Waiting on Wednesday: Edition Forty

Oh, look! I’m keeping to my “safe” genre and featuring another contemporary! What can I say, I love the genre.

This pick is the sophomore novel of author Melissa Ferguson. Her debut The Dating Charade is high on my must read list (yes, still), but I have a good feeling about it so, of course, I’m eager to read this one too!!


Author: Melissa Ferguson | Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Genre: Fiction; Contemporary Romance | Publication Date: November 2020

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 can’t 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.

I’ll be glad to visit your blogs, too; it might take me a week to circle around. Still, I look forward to the visit.

Thank you for visiting Finding Wonderland. 

It’s Wednesday which means there’s another fun meme that bloggers enjoy taking part in. Today’s feature is all about the books we’re “Waiting On” with Can’t Wait Wednesday; a meme Finding Wonderland occasionally takes part in. Organized by the lovely Tressa of Wishful Endings, here’s another edition of Can’t Wait Wednesday. Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here to spotlight and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released as well. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. (Find out more here.)

PS: please excuse the “disorder.” you can read more about Finding Wonderland’s changes, new follow options and why archive posts are a mess in my “Disorder + Feedback” post!

  1. I recently read The Key to Love by Betsy St Amant. I usually am not drawn to contemporary but this one was extra cute.
    I am reading Something Borrowed Collection, a set of novellas with a tiara being passed to girlfriends at their weddings. It’s also very cute and both books have a spiritual message!
