Goodreads: 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?
Ope’s Opinion: This book is put in the romance genre and it does have some steamy parts to it, but it is so much more then the those parts. It has a wonderful story line, great characters and a mystery to be solved. This is the third book in the A Most Likely To series. You do not need to read book one and two to enjoy this one, but it is worth your reading time to start at the beginning.
Jo is the focus of this book, but Mel and Zoe are in the middle of what is going on. It was interesting to see Jo’s whole story slowly revealed and to hear where Mel and Zoe are now. Catherine’s writing kept me wanting to ignore the rest of my life and just read!
The ending let the reader know where everyone ended up and was very satisfying. The mystery was solved with some twists that added to the story line.
