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)
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!
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.
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.
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.
I did not - the book may have been ok, but I could not keep listening her inflections were so annoying and fake.....
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.
Anything to pass the time on the daily commute...
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.
Story was a bit flat for me. This was my first Kristan Higgins book and I am not sure I will be over the moon to download another book written by her. I couldn't understand when the male love interest showed now outward physical attraction but did show annoyance would there ever be a draw for the reader. I am glad to report that she kept the mention of her super support under ware to a short description. It was an ok read but I was finding myself looking through my i-pod to see what was next to look forward too. I can honestly tell you the narrator wore me out with the breathy reading. Someone please get her an oxygen tank PLEASE!!!

The narrator ended every word with some weird lilt. It's horrible to listen to. The closest analogy I can think of is listening to someone with a valley accent? Where every word is a question? And it's super annoying? I was listening to the book and the narrator announced it was Chapter 3 and I had to scream in frustration. I like the story so far but it's super annoying to listen to.
"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
