Review: Making It Right by Catherine Bybee

Making It Right by Catherine Bybee
(Most Likely To #3)
May 9, 2017
350 pages

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've really enjoyed this trilogy, following the friendships, hardships, and romantic lives of Mel, Zoe, and Jo. And this third story brought everything together, finally bringing us Jo's story. It was a beautiful thing to see Jo come into herself. Living in her father's shadow and unresolved death, we didn't quite know who Jo was as an adult. And this story brought Jo to the forefront. She became her true self. And she fought for the truth. And during all this she found her perfect match in Gill. I loved them together, and loved what Bybee did with their story and their future. I'm sad to see these ladies go, but this series was a delight and Jo's story was a touching ending.
