I became a huge fan of Catherine Bybee’s when I read her Not Quite series, which is fantastic. When I received an invitation from Ms. Bybee’s publisher, via Net-Galley, to read this book in exchange for an honest review, I eagerly accepted. I thoroughly enjoyed Doing It Over. This great book is in the Kindle Unlimited program, and if you’re a member you can read and listen for free!
Melanie Bartlett is back in River Bend for her ten-year class reunion. Her car died just short of town an ...more
Overall this was a nice light read, which I see myself re-reading at some point when I need something very light.
A small town romance with a light dash of suspense, this story shows how important bonds of friendship can be. The romance between the main characters is gentle, and doesn't ripple of the page potently, but it was still nice.
Wyatt's relationship with Hope was endearing.
I was hoping for something more from Nathan when it came to the reason for his stupidity/actions. Nonet ...more
Historia demasiado simplona y empalagosa de gente muy buena a la que le pasan cosas muy malas porque los malos son malísimos.
El romance es insta amor para toda la vida y el suspense es poco realista y muy melodramático.
No es el tipo de historia que me entretiene.
This story has been too simple and too sugary about very good people to whom bad things happen because the bad guys are very bad.
The romance is insta love for all our life and the suspense i ...more

Thoroughly enjoyed this book (if you couldn't tell by the 5 star rating). It was sweet, easy to get into, the characters were enjoyable, and the story had enough hints of various intrigue and drama to keep you from putting it down.
I really hope the next book and the overall series turn out just as well as this one. ...more
I borrowed this in audiobook format through Amazon Kindle Unlimited.
Wyatt had that good guy thing going on but made it hot at the same time. Melanie showed true gritt and strength.
These two were just so sweet together.
Can't wait to read more by this author. Thanks C because you knew just what I needed.

When she was growing up, her family looked perfect, but the cracks were starting to show by the time she finished high school, derailing her college plans.

We meet Melanie on her way to her 10-year high school reunion, her child Hope, and beat up car in tow. After arriving, she decides to stay and work with Ms. Gina and the inn, and of course, there's the budding romance w ...more
I have always loved each and every book that i have picked up by this author and this book is no exception.
Melanie has come back for her ten year high school reunion, but the last ten years have been nothing like what Melanie had expected or planned for.
Wyatt and Melanie's first encounter is not the best, however after a proper first encounter the attraction is very much there, especially on Wy ...more
I love the return to small town and making a go at life. I love the premise of three best friend 10 years later finding themselv ...more
Doing It Over was a good read and a solid start to the Most Likely To series.
The characters were likable, relatable and very entertaining. I enjoyed the friendships and the relationship between Wyatt and Melanie was engaging and kept me turning the pages.
I'm a big fan of Catherine Bybee's writing, once again she's given us a well written story with strong characters that leave you full of happy feels.

Cristina Panfilio is the reason I picked this up on audio. She is fantastic. ...more
Melanie Bartlett returns to her hometown of River Bend a week before her 10 year reunion, as she promised her two best friends when they graduated high school. The three were inseparable as teens but have grown apart over the years as usually happens. But Melanie is back in town and down on her luck, desperately needing for her car not to break down. But it does one furiously rainy night. After refusing the help of a stranger, he calls the Sheriff – none other than her best friend Jo.
Wyatt was a dream come true. Especially for a struggling single mom.
Mel was sweet and deserved to find her Prince Charming.
Hope was an adorable child that deserved to have a Knight come into her life, both 2 and 4 legged.
I was somewhat disappointed in Ms. Bybee writing style, but not enough to not enjoy the story. Howe ...more
i like this writer and nothing against her but honestly, right now, i just can't do a trilogy.
i'm too tired to deal w/2 more books to close out the other 2 ladies stories.
yeah...it could of been done in one book, just w/maybe 50 or so more pages.
otherwise, the characters & story were good. some humor. and Hope was cute. also, i found that Melanie as a single mother w/no help from the father was a relatable & common situation.
Another reliable good one from this writer. ...more
