Meet Me in the Margins by Melissa Ferguson

Meet Me in the Margins was a highly anticipated book for 2022, and it did not disappoint!

Savannah works in a highbrow publishing office, but spends her evenings secretly writing *gasp* a romance book. When she leaves her manuscript at work one day, she comes back to find it with notes in the margins. Her mystery editor has a lot of opinions, and she realizes she needs the help to make her story worth publishing. As she gets to know her editor through his notes, she realizes she just might be falling for him.

This story brings you into the publishing world and gives you a glimpse at the work involved in bringing a book to print. I did get slightly annoyed with Savannah’s family. The sister, the ex boyfriend, the parents... They took her for granted and there wasn’t much of a formal apology in the end. But hey, sometimes that’s what families are like.

I loved Will, the male protagonist, and definitely wish we could’ve got a little more of him.

Thanks Melissa Ferguson for this fabulous sweet romance!

So happy to have it on my shelf

From the back cover:

You’ve Got Mail meets The Proposal—this romance is one for the books.

Savannah Cade’s dreams are coming true. The Claire Donovan, editor-in-chief of the most successful romance publishing company in the country, has requested to see the manuscript Savannah’s been secretly writing. The only problem: she’s an editor for a different company, and their philosophy is only highbrow works are worth printing and romance should be reserved for the lowest level of Dante’s inferno.

But when Savannah drops her manuscript during a staff meeting and nearly exposes herself to the whole company—including William Pennington, the new boss and son of the romance-despising CEO herself—she has no choice but to hide the manuscript in a hidden room.

When she returns, she’s dismayed to discover that someone has not only been in her hidden nook but has written notes in the margins—quite critical ones. But when Claire’s own reaction turns out to be nearly identical to the scribbled remarks, and worse, Claire announces that Savannah has six weeks to resubmit before she retires, Savannah finds herself forced to seek the help of the shadowy editor after all.

As their notes back and forth start to fill up the pages, however, Savannah finds him not just becoming pivotal to her work but her life. There’s no doubt about it: she’s falling for her mystery editor. If she only knew who he was.
