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?

I'm so sad to see the Most Likely To series come to an end. I've been a fan of Catherine Bybee's writing for some time now and I have to say that the emotions and love behind the three books in this series were like none other. As an avid reader, I could feel the deeper connection between Catherine and her characters and it made Making It Right so much fun to read. I fell in love with Jo the moment we first met her (as well as Mel and Zoe) in the first book. She's incredibly strong and tenacious. She's also stuck in a rut that only Gill has the answer to. He's the one that is finally able to give her that push she needed to find her way out. Gill was the perfect hero. He's strong and supportive, not to mention sexy as hell. Together they make an unstoppable team.

Making It Right has sassy characters, a mystery that'll keep you guessing, and a romance that'll make you swoon. I adored this book. I feel like Catherine's writing has grown tremendously since the first book of her's that I read. Her characters are far more realistic and down to earth. She makes you want to know her characters in real life. You want to hug them when they are down and cheer alongside them at the end. If you are new to Catherine's books, definitely read her acknowledgements for each of the books in the Most Likely To series to learn a little bit more about the background and how this series came about. If you are a fan of romance that is closer to woman's fiction with a hint of mystery, pick up this book.
