Not Quite Mine by Catherine Bybee & Giveaway

Reviewed by Charlotte Lynn

Rich, party girl Katie has been living the good life since her birth.  After her brother’s wedding Katie finds a baby, Savannah, on her door step with a cryptic note. The note states  that the baby’s mother knows Katie cannot have children and wants them and that the father is not ready to be a dad.  Yet the mother knows that Katie and the father will be a happy family one day.  Katie decides to keep the baby a secret and track down the mother.

At the wedding Katie runs into Dean, her brother’s best friend and her ex.  Their past relationship was a secret and the break up was not easy.  When Dean finds out Katie’s secret, feelings are found to still be there and start to sizzle.  Dean decides to support her in the search to find out what the story is behind the baby.

I did not like the giving up a baby and the keeping of secrets.  It was very hard for me to accept Katie not contacting the police and making sure all was ok.  As I kept reading I was able to accept how this story started and get more into the story.  I was actually unable to put this story down, even though I could see exactly where it was heading.  It was an exciting tale to follow to get to the ending.

Falling in love with the character was easy for me.  Monica’s great support with Katie and Savannah made her the “sister” everyone wants.  Katie and Dean were hot, but there was so much more to each to each of them.  Their support and need to know the truth about Savannah, proved how moral and real their characters are. 

Not Quite Mine is well written.  I can guarantee that it will purl you right in and you will be unable to put the novel down.  I read it in less than twenty four hours.  The next in this series Not Quite Enough will be out in the fall and I cannot wait to keep reading about these characters.
