The Best Man by Kristan Higgins
Sometimes the best man is the one you least expect . Faith Holland left her hometown after being jilted at the altar. Now a little older and wiser, she's ready to return to the Blue Heron Winery, her family's vineyard, to confront the ghosts of her past, and maybe enjoy a glass of red. After all, there's some great scenery there .
Like Levi Cooper, the local police chief—and best friend of her former fiancé. There's a lot about Levi that Faith never noticed, and it's not just those deep green eyes. The only catch is she's having a hard time forgetting that he helped ruin her wedding all those years ago. If she can find a minute amidst all her family drama to stop and smell the rosé, she just might find a reason to stay at Blue Heron, and finish that walk down the aisle.
It's no secret that I'm a huge Kristan Higgins fan, but I now have a special place in my heart reserved specifically for the Holland family.
Faith Holland left home years ago after being dumped at the alter. Heartbreak over her failed attempt to get married and childhood guilt cause Faith to spend a few years away from home making a new life for herself. The first person she sees upon returning to her hometown in New York is the man responsible for breaking up her wedding, Levi Cooper. Make that Chief of Police Levi Cooper.
I liked this story for many reasons, but the main one would be the healing journey that the main characters take. They are all flawed and in need of repair. Even so, I love that they don't look to fix each other. Real life happens, and along the way Faith learns to forgive herself and to trust in love again.
This is Book One of Blue Heron series and all I can say is, "Gimme Book Two right now."
5 out of 5 stars.
