Publisher's Summary

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?

Exceptional - Tough Plot Line

This is the first book in the 'Most Likely to' series. As with a first series books, you have to establish the cast of characters. You know who the follow-on books will be about, you just don't know the order or plots. The great news about this first one is, you will like the entire cast. Melanie and Wyatt are the stars. Melanie is a single mom with a broken-down car who comes home. She was voted most likely to succeed in high-school, but her life has been anything but. Now she comes home and ... (no spoilers). Bybee did an outstanding job of characterizing her seven-year-old daughter Hope who you will instantly like.

Another great pair will be Zoe and Luke. The drama has already been setup in this novel for a later novel. I can't wait to listen to how she will disentangle that mess, let alone figure out how Jo will get her happily-ever-after and solve her father's murder -- that will be a doozy.

Bybee has a great track record in series having penned the 'Weekly Brides' series which is fabulous and a must listen. This book has suspense and some pretty tough times that you may find hard to get by. This is not a feel-good-all-the-way-though novel -- it has grit. I give it a big thumbs up.

Dull story about another woman making poor choices

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The performer was certainly fine but the story line was dull and unimaginative. Rather tired of reading about yet another woman who ends up a single mom due to poor life choices and continues to make bad choices. Spoiler alert: Melanie was supposed to be intelligent with a bright future. She makes a very bad choice in the beginning of the book and still doesn't learn from her mistake. Let's take our little child on a road trip knowing our car won't make it. Let's put her in danger at the beginning of the book. " Let's jump into bed with the first guy that is nice to me." What's to like about this woman? If the author had given a better beginning of the story I might have had a reason to like Melanie. The story line never improved. Waste of money.

Would you ever listen to anything by Catherine Bybee again?

Not unless the book had merit

Which scene was your favorite?

Seriously? None of them.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?


Any additional comments?

Can someone write an intelligent and interesting book with a creative storyline. I get that for many this is a great "summer" read. Why? Another book about a stupid woman getting involved with the first man that she meets. She hops into bed with a guy she barely knows and doesn't consider the implications of bringing a stranger into her daughter's life. So tired of these storylines. Is there any authors out there that can write a decent book?!

Thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Extremely well narrated by Cristina Panfilio. Loved the characters all very real. Great book looking for another by Catherine Bybee
