In Making it Right (Most Likely To #3) by Catherine Bybee, Jo Ward was a tad wild in her younger years, but the death of her father changed everything. Now she's the town sheriff and a woman determined to learn the truth of what happened to her father, even though his death was ruled as an 'accidental shooting'. Except she's never believed her dad could be so careless with a gun, and with all the odd things happening around River Bend, Jo doesn't believe in coincidences. Especially not when the danger begins to surround her, putting her in the path of someone determined to see she doesn't discover the truth. Will Jo together with FBI agent Gill Clausen finally learn the truth of her father's death before someone can put an end to her life permanently?
The first two books of this series have been fantastic reads, but this third book of Ms. Bybee's Most Likely To series was the best of the three in my opinion. Jo was the girl in school voted 'most likely to end up in jail', and I like that she proved everyone wrong. Things happen in a girl's life to help turn things around, and Jo has certainly proven herself with all she's achieved. The way this story started with the prologue gives readers the chance to get to know what Jo was like in her younger years. She was rebellious, out of control in all that she did and determined to push her father to the point where their relationship would fracture completely.
Both the main characters are absolutely compelling and drew me into the story from the moment they were introduced. Their back stories make them the wonderful, loyal people they are, and I could understand why what happened to Jo's dad has made her the strong, brave, independent woman she is. A woman who is determined to do whatever it takes to discover the truth no matter how much danger she finds herself in. While Gill, Jo has a type when it comes to the men she hooks up with and he certainly fits the bill. Moreover, I liked how willing he was to help Jo with her dad's case, because he can't stand that Jo is still affected by her dad's death all these years later. She needs closure to move on with her life; to finally be living her life for her. But what I liked most of all was how protective he was of Jo, even though she didn't need him to protect her, as she does pretty well at taking care of herself.
Overall, Ms. Bybee has penned a great contemporary romance in this book, which provided a good dose of suspense, strong chemistry between the hero and heroine from the moment they met, a storyline that never failed to entertain and well-written dialogue that was a wonderful combination of: intense due to the back stories as well as everything these two go through during the investigation; and teasing banter between the main characters as they get to know each other and interact with the secondary characters. The way this story ended had me concerned for the main characters. Nothing is going to stop Jo being the one to uncover the truth about her dad's death, even though things that come to light leave her reeling with shock. However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up nicely, because of what Gill wants and Jo's determination not to make things easy for him. I would highly recommend Making it Right by Catherine Bybee, if you enjoy contemporary romance with a dash of suspense, the sexy protector trope, or books by authors Bella Andre, Barbara Freethy or Tamra Baumann.
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?
