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.

"Emotional resonance balances zany antics in a powerful story that feels completely real." (Publishers Weekly Starred Review)
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.
The book was simple and didn't require a lot of focus to follow. A good book for a lazy day to just drift off and enjoy. Simple plot and predictable. Nice read.
A bit drawn out at times, but it reels you in and the story has a few interesting twists. As a wine lover, the setting and references to wine were interesting and set a nice scene. Overall good, easy going read.
Classic Kristan Higgins with fully developed characters, lots of smiles and a great couple. This one comes with some amazing zingers and shocked belly laughs!
Feel good romance
This was a cute read. Yes it made me both laugh and cry at times.
This was a nice light read. Loved the family dynamics and how the dog played such a leading role.
Love books. Can get lost in them and spend hours there.
Good story with a good twist. I would read more from this author. Very easy to follow. A must read for all romantic lovers
A Tasty Reader
I could listen to this book OVER AND OVER!! I reviewed the book and it was probably the best I have read in 2013 (I believe it was 2013),and the audio just brought the story to life.
If you LOVED THE BEST MAN, you must read everything else by Kristan Higgins. She is a must read always!
Another FABULOUS release for me was WHEN SNOW FALLS by Brenda Novak*
Faith was hysterical in the book, but to hear it being read aloud, was just LAUGH OUT LOUD!! And Levi... fell even deeper in love!
I am always moved by a K. Higgs romance, I laugh, I cry and I LOVE! One of the best moments, when he comes to explain about the accident...OMG! Levi is good people!
Must Read....or listen...be prepared to LAUGH!
Not sure how many times I have listened to it and finally decided I would write a review. This is a great book--will look for more by Ms. Higgins. The narrator just made it better.
This is my first Kristan Higgins book and I found it just right. KH writes with great emotion, character development, and sets the stage for the listener to be "With" the story and characters. I laughed out loud and cry silent tears, listening to this story.
If you need something well developed and light to listen to, this is your book. Amy Rubinate's reading did not distract from the story, she was able to enhance it with her character reading. Although her soft spoken reading sometimes TRIED to distract, the story line was able to keep you inside, feeling and experiencing the conflicts, embarrassments, anger, and desires.
This is a fun love story, with the hinting of sex. but if you are looking for a story that takes you along with the sexual passions a person can find in other books you will be disappointed.
I recommend this book, for the light hearted, clean joys, with many passions life throws at each of us. It is an Excellent listen and I will be purchasing many more of Kristan Higgins books.
