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.

Good Books Don't Promote Violence
While this book is listed as a Romance, I found "the Best Man" to be an enjoyable story about family, friends and lovers - in that order of importance. Humor and intelligence along with a small town in upstate New York and a family owned winery created an interesting setting for the first book in an engrossing dramatic but not gritty series.
The Best Man was funny, tender, romantic and I loved it. Typical Kristan Higgins. Once again, proof of why her books are an auto-buy for me! Amy Rubinate was a wonderful narrator for Higgins' story.
Not better perhaps but on a par with the book.
I liked Pru and her sexting.
Why are there only three of Kristan's books for sale on audible???!!!
I love Kristan Higgans' stories! They're so real, totally believable plots with lots of love, tears, and humor. Follow Faith Holland as she returns to her family's east coast vineyard from San Francisco to save her dad from falling into the clutches of a tacky gold-digging woman. Once there she runs into police chief Levi Cooper who was the best man who she blamed for her fiancée leaving her at the altar a couple years prior. The complicated lives of these two create a wonderful story where you'll cry, laugh, and just feel terrific while Faith finds herself and maybe even finds out who the best man really is.
This book had me definitely laughing out loud at several parts. And while it does get a bit serious now-and-again, its manageable and funny serious parts. When his ex-wife comes back, her dog humping hilarity, and the gay-ex thrown into the mix makes it a riot! Highly recommend and will definitely be coming back for more Kristan Higgins! (great narration too!!) Credit worth=absolutely
It's one of those made for TV movies kind of romances. At times, I loved it, and then at other times, I wished it related to the audience a little more. Definitely a good light read, a good beach read, but not a great solid read.
Anything to pass the time on the daily commute...
The basic plot of the story was great.... Young woman left at the alter because her fiancé was gay then falls in love with his best friend. But adding in the epilepsy and the crash that killed her mom went too far. Sometimes a more simple story is better.
Day dreaming book lover!
Very funny, very well written romance book. If you are little tired of "fifty shades" style of romance then these are for you. No beatings, whippings, abusive relationships, or angst! Thank heavens!
This book is actually very funny. I laughed several times. The big family and friends was heart warming. I felt like this book read more like real life than most.
Excellent book. Excellent Narration. Levi had always been in Faith's life.
But they had never really been friends. Faith thought Jeremy was the love of her life. It took a cancelled wedding and a trip home to realize that Levi was the one she needed all along.
