(Most Likely To #1)
“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?”
This is the first book in the Most Likely To series, and I loved it. The characters are well described, and the narration goes fluently throughout the entire story.
In this romance, friendship, relationships, and second chances are combined with great mastery, and in the end, you really wish to start the second book of the series.
The narration begins with Melanie and her seven-year-old daughter, Hope, on their way back to River Bend, where Mel is also going to meet her best friends, Zoe and Jo. What Mel didn’t expect at all was also to meet Wyatt, who is going to turn upside-down her plans and make her madly fall in love with him.
We also learn to know Jo and Zoe, with their dreams, limits, and routine. Also important is Luke’s role, always and hopelessly in love with Zoe. Surrounding our new friends, we will feel right at home getting acquainted with their families, friends, and the solidarity of the entire town.
What Melanie has not planned, is the return of his ex and Hope’s father, Nathan, and his scheming …
Thank you Catherine, you deserved five stars out of five.
