I love this story and the author as well. I posted a review on Amazon, CBD, ACFW book review section, Barnes & Noble, and even the ACFW Afictionado newsletter's September debut edition because I loved the story so much. Check it out!

Now here is a similar copy of my review to top that all off!
Jackie Harrison is an ultra-conservative-environmentalist-geek, a civilian employee of the military, and blogger on the sly. She is one quirky lady and her ordered world is flawless until an attractive, single, Lieutenant Colonel invades her personal space—-literally. A cubicle wall is all that divides their offices, hence the title of Jackie’s anonymous blog. Jackie uses her TCND blog to express her private thoughts without fear of discovery—until her posts appear on television. Dedicated to pulling Jackie from her comfort zone, Lt. Col. “Joe” Gallagher discovers his officemate’s unresolved issues. Abandonment caused Jackie to insulate her feelings to avoid pain. Undeterred, Joe stirs her heart until she can’t see straight, and when the proverbial calm follows the storm, Jackie has some tough choices to make. Cubicle is an enchanting tale and the characterization is flawless. Jackie’s hang-up about straw usage is hilarious. Joe’s dimpled charm makes him endearing. The setting grabbed me. I experienced Manitou’s unique traditions, it’s frigid weather, and the Air Force “culture.” The ending was to-die-for-perfect, and had me smiling and zipping through the TCND blog posts one more time. A joyride I’ll not soon forget, Cubicle explores an important question: What if God has more planned for your life than you do? Siri Mitchell is one of my favorite authors because she knows how to bring characters to life on the page!
