Overview

Siri Mitchell’s insightful, funny chick–lit style shines in this story of putting up walls and tearing them down—all for love.

Jackie Harrison, a computer administrator at the Air Force Academy, is a self–proclaimed geek who must share her cubicle space with the new guy, instructor and former pilot Joe Gallagher. She turns to her online journal to vent and eventually to express growing feelings toward this office neighbor who is everything she is not—fun, happy, and social.

But when her blog is featured as a top pick on primetime news, everyone reads it—including Joe. Will he figure out the words of adoration and confusion are written about him? And will Jackie ever risk expressing her heart offline?

Meet the Author

Siri Mitchell graduated from the University of Washington with a business degree and worked in various levels of government. As a military spouse, she lived all over the world, including Paris and Tokyo. Siri enjoys observing and learning from different cultures. She is fluent in French and loves sushi.

But she is also a member of a strange breed of people called novelists. When they’re listening to a speaker and taking notes, chances are, they’ve just had a great idea for a plot or a dialogue. If they nod in response to a really profound statement, they’re probably thinking, “Yes. Right. That’s exactly what my character needs to hear.” When they edit their manuscripts, they laugh at the funny parts. And cry at the sad parts. Sometimes they even talk to their characters.

Siri wrote 4 books and accumulated 153 rejections before signing with a publisher. In the process, she saw the bottoms of more pints of ice cream than she cares to admit. At various times she has vowed never to write another word again. Ever. She has gone on writing strikes and even stooped to threatening her manuscripts with the shredder.

Her tenth novel, The Messenger, follows prior Bethany House releases: A Constant Heart (October 2008), Love's Pursuit (June 2009), She Walks in Beauty (April 2010), and A Heart Most Worthy (March 2011). She Walks in Beauty won the inaugural INSPY Award for Historical Fiction in December 2010. Three of Siri's novels, Chateau of Echoes and The Cubicle Next Door, and She Walks in Beauty were Christy Award finalists. Love's Pursuit and Kissing Adrien were finalists for the ACFW Carol Award.

    Hilarious Every Single Time

    I've lost count of how many times I've read this book, but I do know that it never disappoints. You fall in love with the characters from the very beginning and remember them long after the book ends. This is a book I have recommended many times, often times to complete strangers I happen across. It is a definite must read.

    Wonderful!

    I've read a paper copy of this book several times--I love it! The story is funny and charming, and the characters are so funny! I'm so glad that this has been published as an eBook! Definitely worth it!

    Amazing read! Definitely recommended

    The characters are very well developed, especially Jackie. You feel her angst and her fears and can't help but to cheer for her. Joe is also very loveable and it's great how he pushes jackie to be more of herself than she currently is. This boook is excellent for readers who like when the hero and heroine are at odds with each other because she's resisting and he's pshing and rooting for the relationship. All in all this is a must-read.

    Well written and humorous

    I found this book to be entertaining and well written. The characters were believable and different from most. I laughed out loud several times while reading. I enjoyed the book so much, I went out and bought all of Siri Mitchell's other books. So far, I have found them to be just as good!

    totally recommended

    This is an excellent book. It has everything you need in a book. romance, comedy, a little drama, and of course not knowing what is going to happen. The title goes along with the book to a T.

    Hilarious, but thoughtful, read

    This is the tale of civilian Jackie Harrison working at an Air Force Academy. She is forced to share her office with history instructor Joe Gallager. With him, Joe brings many changes. To express her frustration, Jackie blogs about her experiences. But when her blog is featured on TV, Joe begins to read it. Now Jackie is tortured, wondering if he will realize who the blog's author is. The novel was very entertaining, even laugh-out-loud funny. The reader enjoys experiencing Joe with Jackie. Altogether, the book is charmingly entertaining.

    Humour With An Uplifting Message

    The Cubicle Next Door is the first book I read from this author (Siri L. Mitchell). I laughed so much while reading this book. I like Jackie because I can relate to her and who would not like a guy like Joe! I am long past my thirties but a healthy romance is a rare thing now-a-days. Bravo for the good work. I look forward to read more from Siri.

    Praises for 'The Cubicle Next Door'

    I loved 'The Cublicle Next Door!' It made me laugh out loud as I was reading it. Best of all I really identified with the main character on a personal level. It takes a very gifted author to be able to make their characters versitile enough that a wide audience is able to identify so closely with them. I wasn't able to put this book down until I finished it!

    To Blog or Not to Blog

    Jackie is a civilian who works at the US Air Force Academy. She is forced to share her office, now divided by a cubicle, with Joe, a former pilot and new teacher. She lives with her grandmother and writes in her blog her feelings for Joe (with codes names of course) that she would never actually say out loud. When her blog becomes famous, EVERYONE seems to be reading it and trying to guess who the author is, including Joe. Jackie has to struggle with her feelings for him and to keep him from guessing that the blog is really about him. I really liked this book. I really admired Jackie and felt for her. You understand why she acts and feels the way she does. It was refreshing to read a chick lit book where the main character isn't such a girly-girl who shops and is boy crazy. Believe it or not, there are some of us out there that are like that! Joe sometimes got on my nerves. I'll admit he is a good guy and one of the nicest male leads I've read in a while. But sometimes he was just so....arrrghhh! The scene that stands out most is when he asks Jackie to go to the Bollywood movie with him. But then in the theater all he does is keep complaining and talking during the movie AND he eats all her popcorn. He also seems a little unsympathetic when Jackie is slow to reacting to his affections due to her history. But like I said he is a good guy and I did like him and he was good for Jackie. Otherwise I really enjoyed this book. It gave great insight to the military/civilian life. I also liked the comments in the blog. You get different perspectives from everyone (although the 15 year old know-it-all guy seemed a little unbelievable) that add a touch of real life and humor the the blogs. My favorite scene happened after Jackie wrote her 'help me' post and the whole blogging world goes insane with worry about what happened to her. When I got to the end I had to flip back and read over stuff. I was caught off guard and pleasantly surprised. This is a great chick lit book and I'm looking foward to going back and reading the rest of Siri's books.

    A must-read chick lit title!

    Jackie Harrison, an ultra-conservative-environmentalist-geek-civilian-employee of the military, and blogger on the sly, is one quirky lady. 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!
