Blog Tour Review and Giveaway: Doing It Over by Catherine Bybee




Happy Mother's Day to all the fabulous women out there!

What better way to celebrate Mother's Day than about all about love?

I'm once again excited to be a part of another great tour hosting one of Catherine's books. Her writing is spectacular and always warms the heart and leaves me with a huge smile on my face, a must for any romance fan and her newest series is just fabulous!





Series: Most Likely To

Published By: Montlake Romance 
Release Date: April 19, 2016


Book Description:

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?






Praise for Doing It Over

“The romance between fiercely independent Melanie and charming Wyatt heats up even as outsiders threaten to derail their newfound happiness. This novel will hook readers with its warm, inviting characters and the promise for similar future installments.” –Publishers Weekly

“This brand-new trilogy, Most Likely To, based on yearbook superlatives, kicks off with a novel that will encourage you to root for the incredibly likable Melanie. Her friends are hilarious and readers will swoon over Wyatt, who is charming and strong. Even Melanie’s daughter, Hope, is a hoot! This romance is jam-packed with animated characters, and Bybee displays her creative writing talent wonderfully.” –RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

I'm going to keep this review short and sweet because it is so the kind of story that can be summed up in few words. A story that packs a punch and will be over long before you are ready for it to be.

Bybee always writes amazing stories and her latest is not an exception.

With the right amount of of heartache, romance and mystery blended together, this was such a great and fun read. 


With outstanding friends, that small town feel, and an adorable seven year old to melt your heart, this is one story lovers of romance are going to fall in love with.
