About the Author

Melinda grew up on an isolated sheep ranch, where mountain lions had been seen and yet she roamed unaccompanied. Being a rather optimistic, clueless of danger, sort she took to playing "what if" games that led her to become an author.  She spends days trying to figure out new ways to say "He made her heart pound."  That might sound boring, but the challenge keeps her mentally ahead of her 3 kids and college sweetheart husband.

This is the second book in The Mountain Monroes Series. While I enjoyed the first book, I really liked this second book better. That is possibly since I read them back to back and already knew the people and the town. I was anxious to continue reading about this quirky town and inhabitants. There is a mystery about the town. Why was it owned by Harlan Monroe and willed to some of his heirs? This is the story of Mitch Kincaid - the town's Mayor/Inn Keeper/non-practicing attorney and Laurel Monroe- twin sister to a movie star (who sometimes stepped in and pretends to be her sister), aspiring dress designer and peace maker of the family. Mitch is very protective of his town and does not want the Monroes snooping around and possibly destroying the peace he found living in Second Chance. Laurel finds herself in the town as a member of a scout team of her cousins to get the scoop on Second Chance and possibly help with a solution of what to do with their inheritance. As the story develops, Mitch and Laurel's story unfolds and it is a great plot. I enjoyed getting to know these two character better, as well as the other townsfolk. The third book in this series is due to be released on September 23, 2019. I will definitely be reading to find out more of the happenings in Second Chance! By the way, you can read this book independently of the first, but you should read them both!By the way, you can read this book independently of the first, but you should read them both!

"Snowed in with the Single Dad" (The Mountain Monroes Book 2) by Melinda Curtis is a wonderful read. I loved Mitch and Laurel's story. This is a great addition to this series, packed with entertaining characters, romance, humor, small-town life, family and friends, twists and turns, and more. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next in Second Chance and with the Monroes. Highly recommend to all fans of romance, small-town life, and series.

A fun return to Second Chance! The first book in the series had the Monroe grand kids learning in their grandfather Harlan's will that they were being let go of their jobs and inheriting the town of Second Chance, Idaho. A small group of them went to the town to scout out income potential to see if they could make a go of it. They don't want to like the town exactly, but they seem to be falling for it ... and it's citizens! ... one by one. This time it's Laurel and Mitch's turn! Looking forward to more in the series. Mayor of Second Chance, Idaho Mitch Kincaid sure did enjoy his town better when it wasn't overrun with Monroes trying to take over the town! He knows the town had it good with their trusted friend Harlan Monroe but now that he's gone and left the town to his grand kids, they just might be the end of Second Chance as he knew it! Laurel Monroe is pregnant, hiding out and desperate for something to take her mind off of her woes. She never would have expected to be attracted to the grumpy inn keeper, but either her hormones are flaky or she's downright taken with him!

Oh how I enjoyed this book! I can't wait for every book of this series! Each one seems to get better and better! I thought the first book was great and then I read this one and thought it was fantastic! Such fun characters! Mitch seems like such a stick-in-the-mud at first. He's a single dad of a pre-teen, very strict, mayor of this small town that the Monroes have taken over and an innkeeper. However, he also used to be a high-powered lawyer and married to a wealthy woman that drove him crazy. SO, moving to this slow, small town and raising his daughter (who I loved, by the way!) suits him just fine now. Laurel shows up and he assumes that since she's from Hollywood and works in "the industry", he knows what she's all about. Well, he's wrong and she's going to prove it! Oh, she's also pregnant and dealing with that too! How I enjoyed watching the sparks fly between these two! I really like all the characters in this town and the Monroes I've seen so far. Can't wait to meet more of them! I think you'll enjoy this book, I sure did!

The Monroe Family is struggling with life changing events after the death of their grandfather. Especially Laurel. She's unmarried and pregnant. She's here in Second Chance to come to terms with her new reality. Laurel is a good woman. She's a peacemaker. Unfortunately the stress here is off the charts. Mitch, the town's mayor and single dad, thinks the Monroes are trouble. Why then are he and Laurel drawn to each other? Their romance is sweet and has an interesting twist. I cared for the couple and wanted a HEA for them but I wasn't sure how that would happen. Melinda Curtis wrote a special story filled with love, caring and humor. The setting, the cast of characters and the great interaction between them pulled me in. This series has me hooked. I can't wait to see what happens next. I received a copy of this book which I voluntarily read and reviewed. My comments are my honest opinion.

Solid 4.5 star We are once again back in Second Chance, Idaho and the townspeople are still against the Monroe family who have invaded their town. You can't help but love Laurel because she has more than just the issue of her family being cut off, she is pregnant, doesn't know who she really is anymore and doesn't want to deal with her Mother or Sister Ashley. There is plenty of banter, anger, attraction, frustration and the hope of real love as watch Mitch and Laurel dance around their attraction and whats happening with the town.

4.5 Stars! I love the small town romance! Seriously, the small town dynamics are so heartwarming. The characters are messy, and so easy to love. Laurel is in a wild predicament, but she's so endearing. Mitch has a past that is impacting his views on the Monroes, especially Laurel. I seriously couldn't put this book down once I got into it! I think my favorites are Odette and Flip, the older sisters which gruff personalities. I'm hoping they make more appearances throughout the series. I'll definitely be keeping up with The Mountain Monroes! Thank you to Harlequin Heartwarming and NetGalley for the eARC in exchange for an honest review!

Can't wait to hear more from the Monroe family. Mitch moved to Second Chance to raise his daughter by himself. He didn't want to be a lawyer any more and he sure didn't want to live in the big city. When the Monroes come to town, he knows there will be trouble. They will most likely want to take over and build big businesses and houses. The residents like their town the way it is. What he didn't expect was Laurel. Laurel with her big city ways and fashions are a bad example for his pre-teen daughter. Plus Laural is pregnant. Mitch feels like he losing control of everything. His daughter is rebelling, the town needs a doctor, his attraction for Laural is getting out of hand and he has to figure a way to get rid of the Monroes. A woman like Laural will never stay in such a small town and besides, she has too many secrets.

Who doesn’t deserve a second chance? Well what better place to get it the Second Chance Idaho. The Monroe’s are back in this fun read. I was not a huge fan of Mitch at first I wanted to punch him. Shane and Gabby could be friends the way those two conspire to do things just killed me but they kept the book lively with there antics. Oh Sophia that women has mama bear written all over her she doesn’t just protect her cubs she protects this she loves, and Laurel was not exempt from that. I can’t wait to read Sophia’s story. Laurel has this was about her that I liked she’s fighting for her independence but not quite sure how to get it, I felt like as she discovered who she was and what she was fighting for she found herself. I really enjoyed this fun read. This book is a clean read which was refreshing as well. So worth the read you won’t regret it. I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley. I was under no obligation to post a review and have given my honest opinion

Snowed in with the Single Dad is the second book in the Mountain Monroes series. Although, the story’s overall setting might make more sense to readers who have also read book one, I believe the author did a good job of filling in the details for readers who jump into the series in book two. I liked these two main characters and the situation they found themselves in. Mitch fought his attraction to Laurel the best he could, but still found himself continually drawn to the expectant mother. Laurel was a very interesting character. She was always treated as the lesser twin sibling by her mother and that really impacted her ability to see herself as valuable in her own right. She had a lot of growing to do. This was an enjoyable and sweet romantic addition to the series and I look forward to reading more about the Monroes. (4.5 stars) I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

Decision making can be tough, especially when the choices are between what your family expects you to do versus what makes you happy. Laurel and Mitch are the featured couple in this Second Chance, Idaho story. This snow zone area where the roads close down a lot during the brutal winters is beautiful for those that get to experience living there. But the Monroe grandchildren need to find out what to do with it since they found out upon their grandfather’s death that they now own it. Written with a lot of humor along with the seriousness of their situations, I really enjoyed this book as well as the first book in this series. The characters are genuine, the elderly set in their ways, and the romance that develops is enlightening. [I received this book for free.]
