A heartwarming romance about a city girl who finds herself widowed in a quirky small town and the new target of the town's relentless matchmaking Widows Club.

Head-over-heels in love, Lola Williams gave up everything to marry Randy, including a promising career in New York City. Now, after one year of marriage and one year of widowhood, Lola finds herself stranded in Sunshine, Colorado, reeling from the revelation that Randy had secrets she never could have imagined. She swears she's done with love forever but the matchmaking ladies of the Sunshine Valley Widows Club have different plans...

Sheriff Drew Taylor also knows what it feels like to be unlucky in love. So when Lola comes to him for help uncovering Randy's hidden life, Drew finds himself saying yes against his better judgment - especially with the Widows Club eyeing them both. Soon enough, Lola is upending Drew's peaceful, predictable world...and he kind of likes it! But will this big-city girl ever give her heart to a small-town guy again?

Includes the bonus novella "Kiss Me in Sweetwater Springs" by Annie Rains!


Sweet romance with a size of humor! With the first book in her new Sunshine Valley series Melinda Curtis takes her reader deep into the heart of small town living in CAN’T HURRY LOVE. Everybody knows your business and you can’t hide from your mistakes, but you also have a built in support system when things go wrong. This cast of characters were a bit quirky, and the story line drug a bit in parts, but overall I enjoyed Sunshine, Colorado and plan to make a return visit!

Lola Williams is easy to sympathize with. She finds herself living a small town life after giving up her big city dreams to marry a man who left her a widow within a year’s time. She’s an interesting character and we can relate to her need to find answers about her husband’s secrets before she moves on.

Drew Taylor is easy to like. He’s a single dad trying to do right by his daughter at the same time he keeps peace in Sunshine as the sheriff, but he isn’t sure what to do about all of the drama floating around lately having to do with Lola. He’s finding it easier to keep her in his sights than find out what she’s up to after the fact … of course that might have to do with the fact that he sort of fancies her.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a small town sweet romance. The drama is high, and the kindness of the townsfolk is high.
