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?

Bybee (the Weekday Brides series) launches a trilogy themed on yearbook superlatives (“Most Likely to...”) of three friends, and how they’ve fared 10 years after graduation. Melanie Bartlett, labeled most likely to succeed by her graduating class in River Bend, Ore., is back for her 10th class reunion, with her daughter, Hope, in tow. Though she is somewhat embarrassed that she dropped out of college and is a divorced single mother, Melanie wouldn’t trade her life with Hope for anything. Melanie has decided to move back to River Bend and is relieved that Miss Gina, the proprietress of a local bed and breakfast, has a job for her. When Melanie meets Miss Gina’s contractor, Wyatt Gibson, she is surprised that the handsome younger man would flirt with her. Unexpected trouble crops up in Mel’s life, but Wyatt and the townspeople pitch in to help her out. 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. Agent: Jane Dystel, Dystel and Goderich Literary Management. (Apr.)
