Book Review of Doing It Over by Catherine Bybee

Doing It Over (Most Likely To #1) by Catherine Bybee
Genre: Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: April 19, 2016
Publisher: Montlake Romance

Voted Most Likely to Succeed, Melanie Bartlett ended up anything but. The down-on-her-luck single mom wants a complete do-over—is that too much to ask? With her family long gone from River Bend, strong, independent Mel is as surprised as anyone to end up in the quaint small town she once called home. But with her friends, Jo and Zoe, by her side, and a comfortable room at Miss Gina’s quirky bed-and-breakfast, she just might have turned the corner on a new life.

Wyatt Gibson never liked the big city. River Bend suits the ruggedly handsome builder just fine. Wyatt knows he’s home, even if that means being charmed by the appearance of Melanie and her spunky, adorable daughter. Is Wyatt’s calm devotion—even amid a coming storm—enough to convince Mel she may have found a home to call her own, a family that never leaves, and a true love to last a lifetime? 

Doing it Over is the first book in the Most Likely To series by Catherine Bybee. This is the first book I've read by this author, and I think I'm going to have to read some more of her work. Life didn't turn out like Melanie expected, and when she returns to her home town, she finds that most of her friends lives went in a different direction from what they were voted "most likely" to do. Her friends are pretty amazing. They are her family. Mel's daughter is adorable. She steals everyone's heart...even the readers. Wyatt was a little surprising to me. He talks like a cowboy gentleman at times, then he'll say something in that smoldery, commanding way to show he has some Alpha in there too. This was a love story, but it was also a story of survival and new beginnings.

The ARC of Doing It Over by Catherine Bybee was kindly provided to me by the publisher through NetGalley for review. The opinions are my own.
