Review of The Cubicle Next Door by Siri L. Mitchell
What if God has more planned for your life than you do? Jackie Harrison is a civilian who loves her job at the U.S. Air Force Academy. That is until she is forced to divided her office into cubicles and share the space with a new history instructor, Lt. Col. Joseph Gallagher. A charmer in a flight suit, Joe wants to explore both Colorado and a growing relationship with his new cubicle mate. The office was bad enough, but Jackie's beside herself when Joe shows up in her home and church, even turning her grandmothers weekly bridge game in to poker.
Jackie goes online to vent, but she eventually finds herself admitting her conflicted feelings about this office neighbor who drives her crazy and makes her heart flutter. But when her blog-The Cubicle Next Door-is featured on TV, everyone begins to read it including Joe. Will he figure out the anonymous confessions and frustrations are written about him? And how will Jackie ever express her heart offline?
I first discovered Siri Mitchell by reading Kissing Adrien which is an incredible book. She has now become one of my favorite authors. I read this book while on the plane to and from Las Vegas this past weekend and I have to say it is a winner. I love the way the characters have real flaws that I can identify with. The trade mark humor of Siri keeps you laughing through the pages. If you are looking for romance, humor and an inspirational message that does not come across preachy this is the perfect book. I look forward to her next book coming out in October 08. Click here to drop by her website it is worth a visit.
