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)
Audiobook listener because it leaves my hands free to fold clothes, clean and cook for my dear family of 6.
Funny, Smart, Complex
One of the most memorable moments of The Best Man is when the groom comes out to the bride while at the alter, at the urging of the best man.
Amy Rubinate does a great job in differentiating characters and the voice of the male love interest is particularly engaging and sexy.
This book made me laugh out loud several times. Kristan Higgins does a great job of writing internal monologue and revealing her characters vulnerabilities.
Kristan Higgins writes funny multidimensional characters and sharp, hilarious dialogue. If you are a romance fan who likes that kind of thing, you can't go wrong with KH. This particular book had many passages that made me laugh out loud. The edginess of the relationships gives a lovely realism to the story while keeping a great resolution that comes about as the result of psychological healing. KH is one of my must-read authors.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
This is my first novel by Kristan Higgins to purchase and I am already a huge fan! I loved every minute of, “The Best Man”. It is LOL funny, and tender, and (best of all) ROMANTIC.
I was so taken with Kristan, that I decided to Google her. Her resume’ is impressive. Did you know that she is a two-time winner of the Romance Writers of America RITA Award? And while she has authored at lease nine books, only 3 are available on Audible.
Audible, please take note…her overall star ratings are 4+. The more readers/listeners are able to discover her at Audible, the more demand there will be for her work. She is good!
Back to the review: After zooming through “The Best Man”, I purchased “Catch of the Day” and “Somebody to Love”. I just completed all, giving 5 Stars across the board for “The Best Man” and “Somebody to Love”, and an overall of 4 stars to “Catch of the Day”.
Kristan Higgins enjoys a talent for developing very realistic, in-depth stories, staring characters that are lovable, clever and truly funny. The leading ladies are all avid pet-lovers, which is even more endearing, while the male leads are dreamy alphas.
I definitely recommend all of Kristan Higgins books. Definitely Credit Worthy! Enjoy!
This was really cute...I laughed a lot! From the sample, I was afraid I would hate the narrator, but she wasn't bad. I liked her male voices.
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
I really enjoyed this book. It was really funny, realistic and a very well developed romance. I felt like I really got to know all the different characters and saw them as realistic because they were all flawed. I can even see this book becoming a really fun rom-com movie. I definitely recommend this book.
I did not - the book may have been ok, but I could not keep listening her inflections were so annoying and fake.....
Say something about yourself!
This is an enjoyable story with some twists and turns. The author included enough story. It seemed slow in some parts but I think that may have had more to do with the narration. I enjoyed this book about this family with interesting sub plots. It has some humor. The beginning was good. It was good middle of road book. Nothing over the top, interesting subplots making you want to stay with book. The narrator at times seemed really good but she has that breathy voice, it can become tiresome. I bought this for the weekend listen. It's worth the credit.
Avid reader for 45 years
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.
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.
"I expected something better."
I really got tired listening to it. It was way too descriptive for me and focusing too much on minor details and conversation which was not THAT important. I guess to make the storyline longer?
I found it dragging on too much
blue the dog - you will see why and be prepared to laugh
when faith finally realized what happened the day of the crash
