Paperback & Kindle

Zoe Brown may have been voted Most Likely to Never Leave River Bend, but the paper-thin walls and suffocating air of her family’s double-wide trailer were not what she wanted for her life. Other than BFFs Melanie and Jo, the only thing that kept Zoe sane during high school was her boyfriend, Luke.

She didn’t just leave, she escaped—turning her back on the shame of her black-sheep siblings and imprisoned dad. Now a celebrity chef in Dallas, she can afford all the things she never could have growing up. But when she returns to rustic, ruggedly beautiful River Bend, Zoe has to face all that she abandoned—including Luke.

While Luke was a refuge for Zoe in the past, he knows they inhabit totally different worlds now. Anchored by his parents and his job as a mechanic in his father’s shop, Luke never felt the urge to leave River Bend—until Zoe’s return.

But when the two rekindle their old flame, Zoe is forced to make the hardest decision of her life: remain in River Bend and confront her past before it destroys her, or say good-bye to everyone she’s ever loved…again, this time for good.







Staying for Good is the second book in the Most Likely Series.  Zoe has a dream job as a celebrity chef but her life growing up was at times a nightmare. That’s why she did everything possible to leave River Bend for good. Unfortunately that included, Luke, the young man she fell in love with years ago.
Brought back together by the upcoming wedding of her childhood friend, Zoe, can’t help thinking about the ‘what if?’ Luke never seemed to have gotten over Zeo and seeing her again reinforced that fact. With a shove from his friend, Luke strikes out to Texas to try and connect with his long lost love.
Things seem to be going great but can Zoe give up the life she has to come back to the drama of her family?
I really enjoyed this book, even more than the first. I liked all the secondary characters stories. They had just enough to keep me interested and not enough to distract from the main story. I am really looking forward to the next story. Great job as always Cathy!!
