Melinda Curtis is a USA Today Bestseller romance, humor and comedy author. Before she began writing, she worked as a junior manager for a Fortune 500 company.

The author loves romances about women who never realize that they’re strong until a hero comes their way. When not writing romance stories, Melinda can be found bonding with her husband over remodelling projects.

Can’t Hurry Love
Lola Williams gave up everything, including her career in New York, to marry Randy. After a year of marriage, she is widowed and left stranded in Sunshine, Colorado, finding out that Randy had secrets she could have never imagined.

This happens before she even can come to terms with his death. Her husband has been cheating on her the whole time they were married. She’s trying to find the person who is sleeping with her husband. But will she be happy when she finds out?

Lola makes it clear that she’ll never fall in Love again, but the matchmaking ladies of the Sunshine Valley Widows Club have other plans. The Club is ready to help him find a happily ever after, yet she isn’t willing to be part of it.

Sherrif Drew Taylor has been unlucky when it came to love. He lives in Sunshine in a simple lifestyle when she meets Lola. She got the attention of Drew when she decided to burn all her husband’s inner wears in her driveway. From that day, Drew starts keeping an eye on her as he starts realizing other things about her, not only the crazy ones but also the good ones.

Drew is raising his daughter with his family’s help while he goes to work. His ex-wife has started showing signs that she wants to be a part of their daughter’s life after disappearing for six good years, but Drew is against it since she can’t be trusted. His lawyer suggested that getting married might help solve the problem.

Drew sees Lola as a wild lady and different from the rest of the women he has ever met. She brings hope into his world but isn’t looking for Love. When Lola asks for help from him to discover his hidden secret, Drew finds himself giving in against his judgement, especially with the Widows Club spying on them both.

Lola wants the sheriff to help her out in solving the mystery. Drew is a good guy, holding his heart close to him as he is currently fighting the custody of her daughter. Due to Lola’s husband’s behavior, she is also not looking for Love.

Soon Lola starts changing Drew’s peaceful and predictable world, which he seems to like. Will a big-city girl like Lola ever give her heart to a small-town guy like Drew?

Three major events take place in the novel, all woven together to form one terrific romantic comedy. The first is about Lola’s feelings and the fallout after learning about her husband’s secret life. The second part is about the widows club ladies and a secret unveiled as they tried helping others find their happily ever after.

The last is the events surrounding Sheriff Drew Taylor’s descent into challenges, including a custody fight with his ex and Lola’s tricks. Can’t Hurry Love is a sweet, thrilling, fun, sexy and emotional romantic journey with small-town goodness, engaging characters, heart-racing twists and passion.

It’s breathtaking how Lola never gave up on finding out Randy’s secret. After all, who can blame?

Sheriff Drew and Lola are adorable and amazing characters trying to find a way with each other. Can’t Hurry Love is a story about small-town life, forgiveness, Love and finding Love again. Lots of drama will keep you at the edge of your seat.

Melinda weaves some laugh-out-loud scenes with emotions while serving an endearing romance.

A second Chance Christmas
Twelve years ago, rumors about Lexi and Kevin were everywhere and even until now, nothing much has changed, and they can escape it this time. Both of them can’t escape from Christmas falls or even each other.

Lexi Townsend’s career as a political strategist is not advancing. She writes speeches for fresh senators in DC while in her cubicle. However, if she can hitch her career and become a growing political star, she’ll soon find herself at the corner office before long.

When Lexi is offered an assignment on someone who could jump from local to national politics, she imagines herself at the corner office. As a political strategist, Lexi has been sent to her old hometown to help a candidate get elected as mayor.

If she can succeed in the assignment, she’ll be promoted. Her imagination continues to lighten her mood and excite her until she realizes that her candidate is Kevin O’Malley, the same person who damaged her high school reputation at home in Christmas Falls with a rumor.

Lexi can’t believe that she is back in Christmas Falls and working as Kevin’s campaign manager after deciding to run for mayor against his father. Since it’s part of her job, Lex prepares herself for the most challenging political race in her career because it’s more personal this time.

Sometimes it’s crazy how rumors can ruin people forever, and Lexi knows it firsthand after her secret high school relationship with Kevin. He was the only person Lexi ever loved and ruined her reputation years back.

The rumor was so nasty that she had to leave her home town of Christmas Falls. Now she is headed back home, ready for a bundle of surprises. Working with him after all those years will be challenging for both of them.

Might he have changed over the years? Is he still doing whatever benefits him, whether it’s true or not?

Kevin has a good charm of lying to everyone as long as he gets what he wants in the end. He is evil, and This keeps Lexi afraid, forcing her to do everything she can to ensure he gets elected as the next mayor.

However, when rumors start spreading again, and Kevin does nothing to stop them, she will have to decide if she will support him to win or accept her losses and move on.

Melinda shows how once people have their minds set about some rumors, it’s hard to convince them otherwise. However, the novel shows how the small town knows how to care for each other during times like this.

A Second Chance Christmas is a heartwarming romantic story with many ups and downs. There is undeniable chemistry between the main characters, but can they be able to cross the barriers of their present and past rumors?
