Here is another sweet and clean addition to the Heartwarming line by Harlequin. This story is part of the Harmony Valley series. I have read and enjoyed many of the books in this series. This story does stand on its own just fine if you haven’t read the other books.
Support Your Local Sheriff was a great story that encompassed lost love, guilt, doubt, forgiveness, and so much more. It left me with a very happy feeling as I turned the last page. The hero and heroine were complex yet likable. I felt for both of them and recognized that their past experiences (or interpretation of those experiences) were coloring the way they made decisions in the present.
This story was enjoyable and fulfilling from beginning to end.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Will he pass the daddy test?
With his job in jeopardy, it couldn’t be a worse time for Sheriff Nate Landry’s recent past to come back to haunt him. But it would take an army to stop SWAT team leader Julie Smith. The fellow cop—and sister of his ex-fiancée—wants one thing from the beleaguered lawman: custody of the toddler son that Nate didn’t know he had.
He may not be natural daddy material, but he quickly takes a shine to little Duke. And then there are the feelings Nate’s been hiding for years. Only now Julie’s running for sheriff of Harmony Valley—against him. Time to retreat? Not if he wants a future with the woman he loves.

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?
