Review: Making it Right

Book Review: Making it Right, by Catherine Bybee

✩✩

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?

Genre: contemporary romance

Publication date: May 2017

Mature content: yes

Review: The first thing that attracted me in this book was the cover, which I think is really great. Making it Right is book three in the Most Likely To by Catherine Bybee, but I haven't read the other two books and I can't say I felt I was missing much. Other than now being curious about the stories of Mel and Zoe, I can honestly say that Making it Right can be perfectly read stand-alone. 

And I can also say that Making it Right is a very pleasurable read. I couldn't connect much with Jo at the beginning of the book, probably because I just don't agree with the way she lives her life and with the choices she makes. And Gill, well, he does nor really pass on the image of a dedicated federal agent, not at the beginning. But both of them kind of grew on me, and I did love the way their relationship evolved.


The plot is kind of predictable despite the slightly muddled attempt at suspense, which comes mainly in the second part of the book. There were also few details that did not add up for me, mostly the way FBI business is conducted throughout the book - I would not expect federal agents to be able to drop an investigation and start another (one where they have a personal vested interest) just like that. And the twists at the end were more confusing than actually suspenseful, which is why Making in Right only rates four stars in my opinion. But it still qualifies as a nice summer read, and I recommend it.

Happy readings!
