I’ll most likely be so sad to see this “Most Likely” series end so soon. Stories of three friends, their pasts and presents, their hopes and dreams, all so beautifully penned by Catherine Bybee.

The final book, “Making It Right”, gives the rebel of Rive Bend, OR, her very own happy ending as she finally puts a closure to the mystery surrounding her father’s death. Inheriting her father’s legacy as the Sheriff of River Bend, Jo Anne Ward is desperate for some action, as the tiny town makes her job too easy. Signing up for expert law enforcement training is a turning point of her life, bringing special FBI agent Gill Clausen into her life.

As they work together at the training seminar, they also work together in quenching the lustful thirst of desire that sparks between them. To Jo’s restless heart, Gill is her anecdote of patience. As things turn dangerous in River Bend, Gill is the shield of protection that helps in bringing home the truth of Jo’s father’s death and secrets buried long ago.

A brilliant end to the series as she finally gives Jo her dream of moving out of River Bend, yet close enough to visit her friends. A protective and calm federal agent who gives her new lease of live, beyond River Bend and a dream job with a future together, “Making It Right” for Jo and her friends.

It’s a beautifully narrated story, charming with witty dialogues, the essence of friendship and care so eloquently shown, the passion and love sublime and the whole story just gives off warmth that fills a heart with pleasure and happiness.

As Bybee says, “Sometimes, friends are all the family we need.”

Catherine Bybee is one of the most beautiful and entertaining writers I’ve had the pleasure of reading and re-visiting several times and this is one series you definitely don’t want to miss reading.

Book two of the series; “Staying For Good” brings Zoe back to Riverbend for her best friend’s wedding, and to Luke. For a person who was voted as most likely not to leave Riverbend, she has not only left Riverbend, but also made a name for herself as a famous chef. Yet coming back brings back bad as well as good memories and getting close to Luke hopefully will outweigh the bad.

Luke’s life is in Riverbend, as a mechanic running his Dad’s workshop and content with his life until Zoe returns and everything seems to zap with energy, chemistry, lust and passion. But with Zoe’s family history and a load of fears and insecurities marring their relationship, Luke is willing to follow Zoe to the ends of the earth.

Another story by Catherine Bybee with love and passion, the evolutions of Zoe from an abused teenager to a woman of success, strength and courage, her past not shadowing her ability to be kind, generous and a good friend, “Staying For Good”, is a brilliant read.

Another charming and captivating read from the effervescent Catherine Bybee!!!

Mary Kildare and Glen Fairchild may be “Not Quite Perfect” for each other but somehow they find themselves together to make a perfect future.

Therapist and a good friend, Mary Kildare has rolled with the punches that life had dealt her, and she has become a successful therapist and had made a life. Although the scars of abandonment and loneliness have taken permanent residence emotionally, she has come a long way in making friends and planting roots. Her quite and normal life takes the wings of a wild and passionate course when Glen Fairchild makes an appearance again.

Wealthy businessman, playboy and pilot Glen Fairchild believes in non-commitment and is always on the course of playing the field. Yet Mary is never far away from his thoughts and when circumstances bring him back to Mary, he acts on the opportunity that fate has given him and so the romance starts.

Catherine Bybee always throws in a surprise and I really didn’t see that spark of danger lurking in Mary’s backyard! And Glen becomes the protector, savior and confident as they try to overcome the threat that shadows Mary. With sassy dialogues and flirty actions, with kind and caring people, pages of warmth and support, and appearance of previous characters only adds more magic to this love story as Mary and Glen try to make the best of a bicoastal relationship.

I love the way Catherine Bybee gives importance to the depth of relationships and the maturity of nurturing them with patience and love. She created Glen and Mary to perfection with their goodness, kindness and just two beautiful people who deserve to be together. Attention to details, the sequence of narration and the practical plot add more flavor and warmth to this fifth book in the “Not Quite Series” making it a brilliant read.

The pioneer of her new series, “Doing It Over” brings Melanie Bartlett back home to River Bend, along with her seven year daughter to do just that – do her life over leaving a bad and obsessive relationship behind. Coming home to her childhood friends Jo and Zoe is a safe haven as she regroups and tries to build a new life. Meeting the resident building contractor Wyatt Gibson is an added motivation and support of her new beginnings.

Catherine Bybee has an amazing talent of interlacing romance, suspense and danger that the narration flows as smooth as silk. Melanie and Wyatt have been caricatured to perfection – independent, stubborn, courageous and protective. Hope as the adorable, mature and spunky seven year old reminded me of my younger daughter! Miss. Gina as the kickass owner of Miss. Gina’s Bed-And-Breakfast is a reading riot and will be a standing fixture in this series for sure.

Catherine Bybee’s Weekday Brides Series is one of the most beautiful and entertaining series I’ve read and have re-visited several times. I will miss these alpha males with their imperfections and attitude and their equally sassy and independent women.

The grand finale of the series, “Treasured By Thursday” gives Gabriella Masini, a fitting fairy tale. For all the pain and betrayal that she had endured, the nightmares and scars that plague her in the present, she is one amazing woman who deserves the man of her dreams to cherish her, adore her and love her. And Hunter Blackwell fits that role like a glove.

Touted as one of the most eligible bachelors of times, self-made and a billionaire to the boot, Hunter Blackwell is on the lookout for a temporary wife to get away from the limelight. But when Alliance refuses to take him as a client, a man with the word ‘no’ not in his dictionary, manages to blackmail Gabriella into marriage.

Catherine’s trademark style of witty writing and emotional play of scenes is as always awesome and enthralling. I believe she’s spent an extra caring minutes creating Gabriella and Hunter. Gabriella has blossomed into a savvy and strong woman, overcoming a past that haunts her sometimes, yet it has helped in shaping her independence and individuality. Hunter is the ultimate businessman, ruthless but a heart of gold and when he cares for someone, he gives himself completely.

I loved, loved and loved both these amazing characters. Bringing together the complete entourage of her series was just pure orgasmic! And no words can do justice to this series. It has to be read to enjoy Catherine’s amazing characters and enjoy the screenplay of her various love stories.
