Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Another fun read."

    Just another fun read from Kristan Higgins. I didn't want to put it down the further the book progressed. Easy listen.

    "Excellent Family Drama with Romance & Humor"

    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.

    Story
    "My new favorite romance author!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Best Man to be better than the print version?

    Not better perhaps but on a par with the book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Pru and her sexting.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes definitely.


    Any additional comments?

    Why are there only three of Kristan's books for sale on audible???!!!

    "Loved it! Another great one by Kristan Higgans"

    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.

    "Hilarious and LOTS of Fun"

    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

    "Over the Top Romance"

    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.

    "I couldn't get passed the narrator"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I believe the narrator can make or break a book. I didn't like the narrator at all.

    Story
    "Cringeworthy"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better writing. Read by a man who so as to avoid the horror of that breathless tittering about anything relating to sex.


    What could Kristan Higgins have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Don't write romance novels and never ever write another 'sex scene'! Do not describe sex as 'nookie' (ugh) and maybe meet some transgender people before using them as a cheap caricature.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator's voice is too high pitched and the delivery is just a little too 'valley girl'. ,


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Pretty disappointed that in this day and age this kind of fake romance story is still being peddled about. None of the conversations are in any way realistic. The scene where there is a date with the father's prospective date, a transgender woman, are truly awful and show just how far the author is removed from reality and a sense of respect for the intelligence of her readers/listeners.

    "Kristan Higgins-romcoms"

    I really enjoy Kristan Higgins novels. They are a nice blend of story, setting and romance with a dash of quirky characters so they aren't pour sappy.

    I do think, however, that Xe Sands is the best narrator of her novels.

    "Horrible gushing narrator!"

    Not sure why I made myself finish the very predictable book with a even more ridiculous, annoying narrator. This book was Middle School material at best! I've read better stories than this from Middle School children so I shouldn't give the author that much credit. Waste of time and even waste if it was a special. Do yourself a favor and pass this one by!
