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.

    "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
    "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.

    "This is my Cup of Tea"

    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!

    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.

    "Simple Is Better"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Too many pages of sex descriptions"

    Story line was interesting but it was buried in constant sex. Not explicit, but way more descriptive than needed. Since this was audio, I was able to fast forward through those sections. Very distracting. Certainly not one of the better books I have read and doesn't feel the need to read any other of this author's books.

    "The best man"

    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.

    "Faith and Levi"

    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.
