Making It Right: Most Likely To, Book 3

Catherine Bybee. Montlake Romance, $12.95 trade paper (377p) ISBN 978-1-5039-4359-9

Intense suspense heightens the scorching romance at the heart of Bybee’s outstanding third Most Likely To contemporary (after Staying for Good). JoAnne Ward, daughter of the sheriff of River Bend, Ore., never expected to take over her father’s job, but when she was only barely out of high school, he died of a gunshot wound—supposedly a self-inflicted accident, though he was fastidious with his weapons—and she stepped up. Now the 10th anniversary of his death is approaching. When she leaves River Bend to get some additional training, Jo hooks up with a dangerous-looking man she meets at a bar in D.C.—and is surprised to later meet her one-night stand, Oregon FBI Agent Gill Clausen, at Quantico. As she gets to know Gill, their attraction deepens, and they begin dating upon their return home. Gill helps Jo continue to investigate her father’s death, and soon they realize that someone killed Jo’s father and is now targeting her. Sizzling sensual scenes are coupled with scary suspense in this winning novel. Agent: Jane Dystel, Dystel, Goderich & Bourret. (May)
