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 such a delightful book, y’all! I can’t recommend it enough! Nate and Julie are old friends drawn back together by a little boy named Duke. Who, by the way, is just adorable. The chemistry between Nate and Julie is full of past emotions that give weight to the sparks that fly between them without their consent. And trust me, you will be quickly be swooning over Nate and his easy way of being a small town sheriff and looking out for the people in his care. Speaking of those people, a quirky cast of characters brings lots of wry humor to the mix and at times had me chuckling out loud. Their personalities all so vivid that I could easily see them brought to life on the screen courtesy of Hallmark. Sweet, sassy and romantic, Support Your Local Sheriff is definitely going on my faves list for 2017! Colorful characters, a cozy small town setting and an adorable toddler will make you laugh and smile, while Nate and Julie’s story will leave you swooning and maybe even wiping at a few stray tears.

Nate and Julie, two people perfect for each other held apart by her dead sister and the son she has with him. Can they possibly overcome the tragedy to find their happy ever after? Julie and Nate were once cops together. Until he left her sister April at the altar. And left the force without a word. Now Julie is looking for her own justice and her anger towards her once friend propels her forward. But now she has Duke, Nate and April's son to think about. With her sister dying from cancer she has one request. Deliver the Daddy Test to Nate and see if he's daddy material. And forgive. Forgive him for everything. But that may be a bigger request than she can handle.  Nate never wanted to be a father. And as the sheriff of the small town of Harmony Valley he's away from all the memories from his past. Until Julie shows up with one heck of a bombshell. He is a father. And he falls in love with his son. But this Daddy Test is way more than he bargained for. And when Julie finds out why he really left her sister on their wedding day she may take his son and never look back. But he couldn't hide his love for Julie from April and he's not hiding it from the town. How can she not see it evertime he looks at her?  As they learn dark secrets from the last about one another, the more time they share together and the feelings become more than they can bear. But the feelings of unworthiness and betrayal are strong. Will they be able to over come them and live as a family?

I love coming back to Harmony Valley with all of its great townspeople and wonderful new stories that make and shape this town. Sheriff Nate Landry may have not known that he had a child, but now that he does he's going to do everything he can to make sure he is part of his life. Finding out that he is a dad has brought up old feelings about his father that he thought he had buried years ago. Julie Smith only wants one thing in this town and that is to get Nate to sign over his parental rights, but Nate seems to be fighting her on it and she isn't strong enough to do the one thing her sister wanted more than anything and that is for her to forgive Nate for leaving. I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

An endearing story about forgiveness ... of other people, and of yourself! I enjoyed watching the connection between this man who thought he would be no good as a father with the little boy who stole his heart at first glance. It was bittersweet to hear all of the sadness they had all endured, but watching them work through their pain was very rewarding. I was a bit thrown by the way they would instantly be thinking back to the past in the middle of a scene, but overall, I really enjoyed the writing style, the plot and the characters! Sheriff of Harmony Valley, Nate Landry has an easy-going life as the law in a small town one minute, and the next minute the job that means a lot to him is all of a sudden in jeopardy when the town busy-body wants to make heads roll for things not going the way she wants them to! As if that isn't upheaval enough, who should suddenly show up in his town but the sister of his former fiance ... with a toddler in tow who looks awfully familiar! Julie Smith is recovering from some work issues herself, and still reeling from the loss of her sister ... and the last thing she wants is to be in the company of her former friend Nate Landry. She has hated him for years since he broke her sister's heart on what would have been their wedding day ... and she's only here for as long as it takes for him to sign over custody of the son he didn't even know he had!

I loved this book! It really touched my heart, and gave me lots of smiles along the way. Nate and Julie are complex characters that go through a myriad of emotions. Nate is charming, kind and good. He is great with the people of Harmony Valley. (Who are so much fun!) Julie is a spitfire! She is confident and independent. Both of them have a lot of past hurts they have to work through if they are to have any chance with each other. Duke is the reason they’ve been brought together now. He is adorable! He stole my heart immediately. I loved the way Nate interacted with him. And I enjoyed Julie’s shock when it was nothing like she expected. This is the tenth book in the Harmony Valley series, but can be read alone. I love this town and the people there! I received a copy of the book, which I voluntarily reviewed. I have given my honest opinion.

I just love Nate. And Duke us so cute. Nate had such a terrible childhood and it is no wonder he doesn't feel he is fit to be a parent. But, he has no choice since his ex-fiancée's sister, Julie, shows up with his son. When he and his fiancée broke up on their wedding day, he left his job so her sister wouldn't have to see him. He really was in love with Julie and not his fiancée. But Julie was off limits to him. Now he remembers why he has always loved her and he also loves his son. He knows once Julie finds out about his past she will take his son and raise him on her own. He really wants to be with Julie and Duke, but he isn't good enough. Julie and Duke disagree.

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.

This book is my new favorite of this author’s Harmony Valley series. I loved it! The senior residents, two-thirds of the town, really ramp it up, especially Terrance. So much wisdom is passed on. And the elderly ladies are a hoot! Nate and Julie once worked together on the police force in Sacramento, until he became sheriff in Harmony Valley. Julie arrives from Sacramento with an adorable toddler named Duke, who will steal your heart, and the story begins with quite the revelations. I giggled and laughed a lot, felt much sympathy for Nate and Julie, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It left me feeling warm inside and not without tears. It is easily a standalone book, too. I highly recommend it. [I received this for free.]
