In the final book in bestselling author Catherine Bybee’s Most Likely To trilogy, River Bend’s rebel follows in her father’s footsteps to become sheriff. But it might be time to forge her own path…
Some kids inherit a family business; Jo Ward inherited a badge. Once voted Most Likely to End Up in Jail, the town wild child has become sheriff—hell-bent on uncovering the truth about her father’s mysterious death. Life is quiet in rustic River Bend, but Jo longs for something beyond her small hometown and the painful memories it holds. All that keeps her sane is the support of her best friends, Melanie and Zoe.
But when Jo signs up for an expert law enforcement training seminar, she meets Gill Clausen, whose haunting eyes and dangerously sexy vibe just may challenge her single-minded focus. Commitment-phobic Jo can’t deny her attraction to the arrogant federal agent, and when odd things start happening around River Bend and danger surrounds her, she realizes she’ll need his help to discover who’s out to remove her from River Bend…permanently.
As Jo and Gill work together, it’s clear they make a great team. But can Jo loosen her grip on the past enough to let love in and reach for the future?
3.5 big and mmmm Stars.
Making It Right got off to a rocky start. Our heroine JoAnne Ward came off too reserved. Throughout the other books I just wasn’t interested in her as a character but gave her a chance in this book. The beginning as mentioned was tough going for me but once the ball started to get rolling it improved a lot.
Jo rebel child has been trying to redeem herself for the past ten years. So after her father’s accidental murder. Yeah that didn’t happen. She went to the Academy and became Sheriff and since that day she has been leading a half-life. Trying to catch her father’s murderer she isn’t getting any further.
Jo goes to DC to improve her skills with the FBI to help her in her endeavour. When not in River Bend Jo likes to live a little. In this case it came in the form of.
God Lord, God broke the mold with this one. His goatee was trimmed, immaculately so. His lips were full, his jaw tight … and his eyes. Dark, almost haunting. Dangerous. He did a once-over, and when his eyes met hers, he lifted his lips in a half smile.
And lovelies – I was a goner.
Fake names and a good time Anne creeps out of the hotel room to bump into him at the FBI. What are the odds right? Well ask Shauna about that one.
Agent Gil Clausen is smitten, gosh he is one of the best Heroes this year. IMO. He is protective, persistant and he knows what he wants and he wants JoAnne but with a murder on the loose and a couple of close calls they are up against a lot not to mention small town living lives Jo wanting a different life.
My one thing which irked me is I guessed some of the twists which is why I docked a star but also in saying that I enjoy the authors writing style and hope to read more of her works in the future. Ms. Bybee how about a book about Zane? Ta very much.
My friend Janie mentioned the acknowledgements at the end of the book and boy am I a bleeding heart. Ms. Bybee is really invested which as an author you should be. But for her it was personal. And my parting words?
Lead your life for yourself. Lead your life for the right reasons. Lead the life that you want.
Peace out Peeps!
