Book Review: Doing It Over by Catherine Bybee

Doing It Over 
(Most Likely To Series, #1)
by Catherine Bybee


Blurb: 

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?


      

Viviana's Review: 
A great start to a new series. Catherine creates a town filled with characters readers will not only connect with but will also fall for! I also love the premise of the story of three friends who were given labels or expectations back in high school and things truly turned out.

I really loved all the characters and look forward to learning more about them all. The heroine and hero are great in "Doing It Over". They have a slow burn romance for various reasons and it totally works and adds to the story telling!

Though this is Mel's and Wyatt's story, we get to know their friends and family members. Catherine did a phenomenal job with setting up the rest of the series! Makes you eagerly wait for the next installment.

I love Catherine's writing style and how she shows you the story vs. "tell you". "Doing It Over" is great example of a contemporary romance that contains elements of suspense!

Overall, a great beginning to the series!
