The Cul-De-Sac War
by Melissa Ferguson




Overview -
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.
  • Includes discussion questions for reading groups.

"A book that is filled with both humor and heart." --Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Ferguson delights with a grand sense of humor and a captivating story to boot " --Patti Callahan, New York Times bestselling author of Becoming Mrs. Lewis

"Melissa Ferguson's The Cul-de-Sac War is sweet, zany, and surprisingly tender. Bree and Chip will have you laughing and rooting for them until the very end." --Denise Hunter, bestselling author of Carolina Breeze

"With her sophomore novel, Melissa Ferguson delivers hilarity and heart in equal measure . . . I was thoroughly charmed from beginning to end." --Bethany Turner, award-winning author of The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck

"Witty, wise, and with just the right amount of wacky, Melissa's second novel is as charming as her debut. Competition and chemistry battle to win the day in this hilarious rom-com about two people who can't stand to be near each other--or too far apart." --Betsy St. Amant, author of The Key to Love

Romance: November 2020

Prank wars, a country house murder and a passle of irrepressible children add zing to three very sweet romances.

★ My Last Duchess

Eloisa James pens a truly delightful prologue to her popular Wildes of Lindow Castle series in My Last Duchess, the love story of the family’s patriarch and matriarch. Hugo Wilde has eight children from two duchesses and is now in need of a third wife. There’s all those children, after all, ranging in age from 2 to 18. He had planned to make a sensible choice until he took one look at widow Lady Ophelia Astley. In keeping with Wilde family tradition, he falls in passionate love at first sight. But what does he have to offer her except the stultifying life of a duchess, not to mention those eight children? Their path to happiness is mostly smooth—who can resist a sexy, kind, besotted duke?—yet the journey is great fun all the same. The banter is witty, the secondary characters are exquisitely well drawn, and the glimpses of the children will cause readers who have read their stories to smile and entice those who have not.

A Lady’s Guide to Mischief and Mayhem

Manda Collins smoothly blends romance and an English country-house whodunit in A Lady’s Guide to Mischief and Mayhem. Newspaper owner Lady Katherine Bascomb pens an article critical of Scotland Yard’s investigation into the murders attributed to the “Commandments Killer,” causing Inspector Andrew Eversham to be pulled off the case. But he gets a second chance at stopping the villain when a similar killing occurs in a small village near the estate where the very curious and very stubborn Kate currently resides. Despite the class barrier between them, the pair realizes they have equally clever minds and an undeniable physical chemistry. The twists and turns of the plot will keep readers guessing, but Kate’s independent attitude and the interesting friends she gathers around her bring the story to vivid life.

The Cul-de-Sac War

Two neighboring houses, a big, slobbering dog without boundaries and one unwelcome attraction add up to a madcap romance in The Cul-de-Sac War by Melissa Ferguson. From the moment hunky, stubborn contractor Chip moves in next door to the home that free spirit Bree inherited from a relative, alarm bells go off. When Chip refuses to move a fence line, sparks fly and pranks ensue until they’re in a full-fledged war. But as these likable characters become better acquainted, they share serious thoughts about happiness, death, family and work. Love follows, but can they admit to it? This kisses-only inspirational romance is a sweet treat with a soft center.
