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.

    Story
    "Multi-dimmentional and captivating"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would! I thought it was very captivating and the characters were complex. There was depth to each character and we (as readers) kept learning more and more about the characters and their pasts. It is funny, relatable, and endearing.

    Story
    "Great story - Clean romance - Funny"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES - If you are a fan of romantic comedy - this is for you.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The connection between all the characters worked perfectly


    What about Amy Rubinate’s performance did you like?

    Her inflections - Perfect for each character - I could feel Levi's agitation and amusement as well as Faith's awkwardness and determination.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The writing was great - the emotions of Faith, her guilt


    Any additional comments?

    Faith returns home to contribute to her family's vineyard but only plans to stay for a few weeks. Well, there is no place like home and once there, she can't really remember why she should stay away. It is hard being back in to the town where everyone witnessed your downfall - being left at the alter by her high school sweetheart - Jeremy.The painintheass Levi is EVERYWHERE Faith looks. He is also a painful reminder of everything (Jeremy) she lost. Levi is the reason she is not happily married. He ruined her wedding (at least in her mind). Levi wants NOTHING to do with Princess. She is so innocent and blind, she could not see what was right in front of her.

    Story
    "EASY, CAPTIVATING LISTEN!!!"

    I go through spells of listening to fast paced, blood and gore mystery novels and then I have to turn to easy listening for a short period. Which is what I consider this wonderful book. IMO, this story is complex enough to capture one's attention and is yet easy to follow. It's a "feel good" novel with a great ending! Kristan Higgins reminds me very much of Robyn Carr's style of story telling and I've read/listened to everything that R. Carr has written. I'm so glad I found Kristan Higgins.

    As for Amy Rubinate, she's a wonderful narrator with great talent for distinguishing the voices of each character. You always know who's talking to who!!

    Good job Kristan and Amy! This book is a great introduction to the Blue Heron series and SOOOO worth the credit!

    Story
    "One of the best!"

    This was a great story! The characters were imperfect and real. The language was clean but not "prim". The characters were sexual beings and it definitely wasn't prude. But it wasn't graphic either. It was just a good story that didn't depend on cheap fluff. I've already purchased the other two books based on the quality of this one.

    Story
    "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
    "The Best Man"

    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.

    "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???!!!

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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
