Marrying the Single Dad was a sweet, sweet story! Whether following Brittany and her hope to reignite her artistic passion or watching Joe try to make it in a town that only remembers the mistakes of his family, I wanted things to work out for these characters.
I also liked the way Joe’s daughter was written. She was very believable and I liked her a lot. She and her dad were going through a rough time with the move and the way she felt about herself as she was growing up. But it was so nice to see how much Joe cared about her.
This was a fun story to read from start to finish. I liked returning to Harmony Valley and seeing characters from previous books, however, if you have not read any of the earlier books in the series, Marrying the Single Dad could stand alone nicely.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
A man called Joe
Building a new life for himself and his preteen daughter brings Joe Messina home to Harmony Valley. That and showing his town that the onetime bad boy is now a responsible single father. His first move is to get his grandfather’s defunct garage up and running. Except now he’s got the FBI poking around, and there’s a beautician with her eye on the abandoned auto parts. An artist who’s happiest turning rusty junk into sought-after treasure, San Francisco transplant Brittany Lambridge is making Joe think they can create something rare and special together. But he has unfinished family business that could jeopardize his fresh start. Is Joe ready to believe in himself as fiercely as Brittany’s beginning to believe in him?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Although Melinda has lived in Georgia and Texas, she’s a California girl at heart. Her earliest memories are of life on an isolated 50-acre sheep ranch in rural Sonoma County, California. Picture rolling hills covered in brown grass, a eucalyptus forest, a long gravel driveway lined with plump sheep and no sidewalks. It was a big deal to drive into town on a one-lane road in a ramshackle, bubble-fendered pickup for an ice cream.
Flash forward to this century. Melinda lives in California’s hot central valley with her husband – her basketball playing college sweetheart. With three kids the couple has done the soccer thing, the karate thing, the dance thing, the Little League thing and, of course, the basketball thing.
Melinda writes sweet to medium heat contemporary romances as Melinda Curtis and red hot reads as Mel Curtis. She loves writing romances about women who don’t realize how strong they are until a hero comes along to show them, while capturing the wry humorous power struggle of falling in love – because, really, who lets the man have the last word?
