Meet Me in the Margin by Melissa Ferguson

Savannah Cade is a low-level editor at Pennington Publishing, a prestigious publisher producing only the highest of highbrow titles. And while editing the latest edition of The Anthology of Medieval Didactic Poetry may be her day job, she has two secrets she’s hiding.

One: She’s writing a romance novel. Two: She’s discovered the Book Nook—a secret room in the publishing house where she finds inspiration for her “lowbrow” hobby.

After leaving her manuscript behind one afternoon, she returns to the nook only to discover someone has written notes in the margins. Savannah’s first response to the criticism is defensive, but events transpire that force her to admit that she needs the help of this shadowy editor after all. As the notes take a turn for the romantic, and as Savannah’s madcap life gets more complicated than ever, she uses the process of elimination to identify her mysterious editor—only to discover that what she truly wants and what she should want just might not be the same. Melissa Ferguson’s latest—a love letter to books, readers, and romance—will leave fans laughing out loud and swooning in the same breath.


My Review

What a fun and cute story!
Savannah Cade dreams of being a writer and has a manuscript that’s just ok. When she gets a second chance, she is thrilled. She stumbles upon a secret and finds a mystery editor for her story. This story has a You’ve Got Mail feel which drew me to the story in the first place. It didn’t disappoint!!
I love the characters especially Savannah. She was relatable and someone I’d want to be friends with. The relationship between William and Savannah was fun to watch as well. It was fun to get a glimpse into the world of book editors.
This story is delightful. It has all the makings of a romantic comedy about books and writing. A secret room, a mysterious editor, drama, humor…all these make this story one of the best romantic comedies ever!

I recommend this book to my family and friends.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
