Kissed by the Country Doc really was a heartwarming story. Ella and Noah were emotionally vulnerable characters, who both struggled with events from the past which impacted their view of present day situations.
It was interesting to get a peek into Noah’s past and see the type of person he used to be. His personal value was all wrapped up in his prestigious profession. Ella had much tragedy in her past, including the fairly recent loss of her husband. Ella’s desire to be considered a member of the Monroe family added a lot of worry to her shoulders.
I loved the interactions and attraction between Ella and Noah. And Ella’s daughter, Penny, was a sweet addition to the story. I loved the way she interacted with Noah, as well.
This is the first book in the Mountain Monroes series. Many characters are introduced and I am looking forward to reading future stories set in this fun location!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

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?
