D time forgetting that he helped ruin her wedding all those years ago If Faith 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 Heronand finish that walk down the aisl. I am so happy that I decided to pick up one of Kristan Higgins books I absolutely adored this story and I cannot wait to read from herThe Best Man is book #1 in the Blue Heron series What I loved most about this story was that the romance between the two main characters was so refreshing to read It was sweet tender sexy and there was just the right amount of angst thrown in too Nothing was overdoneThis is Faith Holland and Levi Cooper’s story Both characters were easy to love Levi was that kind of guy that was imperfect in ways that drew you in and made you swoon like crazy And sweet beautiful Faith She was the perfect match for Levi even if he had a hard time seeing that himselfWith a shared past that had been a bit bumpy Levi and Faith’s lives end up going down paths that wouldn’t cross again until a number of years had passed Both of them have changed in different ways but there was a piece of their past that hadn’t changed There was something that had always simmered just below the surface when they were together and soon enough it would bubble overFaith and Levi’s past involved Levi’s best friend and Faith’s ex fiancé Jeremy When Faith was left broken hearted at the alter nothing could take away the humiliation she felt How did she not know Why didn’t someone say something to her So she did the only thing she could and left Manningsport and headed to San FranciscoThere is something stirring within Faith’s family that brings her back home after a few years She was looking forward to seeing her father John her brother Jack her sisters Honor and Pru her best friend Colleen and lets not forget Goggy and Pops The one person that she wasn’t looking forward to was seeing Levi Faith hadn’t forgotten what happened on her wedding day and her feelings towards Levi hadn’t changed much That’s until she runs into him and realizes that there is a bit of a spark between them This spark sends them both into a passionate tailspin ❤I really enjoyed these two together One minute Levi would be all brooding and the next minute he was being sweet and sexy I loved Faith’s tenacity and her sweetness Their romance was slow building and I’ll admit the sex scenes were not over the top hot and heavy but it really didn’t matter They were sexy in such a tender way that it was rather refreshingThere was so much to this story than just the romance brewing between Faith and Levi Faith needed to come to terms with something that happened when she lost her mom and Levi needed to realize he was so much than that boy from the wrong side of the tracks He deserved to be happy I also enjoyed the side story of Faith and her siblings trying to find a girlfriend for their dad John It was comical Groggy and Pop were a hoot too And everyone needs a best friend like Colleen She was rather entertaining to say the least Oh and Blue What a sweet dog he was That is when he wasn’t humping Levi’s leg

The Best ManFaith Holland left her hometown after being jilted at the altar Now a little older and wiser she's ready to return to her family's vineyard the Blue Heron Winery to confront the ghosts of her past and maybe enjoy a glass of red After all. I'm really puzzled about how to approach this review There is much about this book that is sensitive generous moving and funny There is also much that feels like getting a pie in the face With a rock in itFaith has an exceptionally bad history with men even for a Higgins heroine Her longterm sweetheart Jeremy came out to her at their wedding and it's been nothing but bad revelations ever since Yet fate has chosen her to be a matchmaker for her widowed father who the family fears is in danger of marrying Lorena clearly a gold digger and not a candidate for stepmother The burden of guilt Faith carries about her mother's death makes it impossible to refuse to go home even though it means facing the lover who dumped her and his best friend Levi who pushed him into doing itStarting with a gossipy prologue about the aborted wedding the story is firmly set in the small town full of lovably eccentric characters subgenre and the romance cliches fall thick and fast at the beginning As I read on I found I didn't mind because the elements were all used yes it's a bit over the top that Chief of Police Levi gets called out to rescue pet chickens from dogs but it also reveals something about his dependable character Faith's relationship with Jeremy is also than just a plot point; they still care deeply about each other and regain some of their former closeness over the course of the story and Jeremy and Levi's friendship is also strong Despite his deceit Jeremy is really a love and I would have read a romance for him in a minuteAnd there's a realistic ugly side to this small town In one poignant scene Levi thinks about how as police chief he helped a woman who had once begrudged him some Halloween candy because he was a trailer park kidLevi's sensitivity about class issues was one of the reasons he and Faith had never been friends that and his contempt for her people pleasing attitude Faith is so aware of his dislike she has a boredom scale that measures the way he looks at her One was Oh It's you Ten was You're invisible They start the story with a lot of bad feeling between them as well as a bit of history of attraction and a forbidden kiss And that attraction begins to blossom as they start to understand how each misinterpreted the otherThe parts of the story from Levi's perspective were my favorites He's written a little too self consciously just an average guy at times like when he thinks A regular what was that Greek chick's name The one who caused the slaughter of an entire city He remembers the details but not the well known name Helen of Troy But he's a good guy with a hard past and I liked him for coping so well Faith is less easily likable until we discover what makes her so needy Jeremy the only one who'd ever seen in her something that was special and rare and precious Jeremy had been proof that she was forgiven But now there was nothingGood characters good backstory good romance what went wrong for me was the humor which too often sailed over the top into very offensive I was uncomfortable when the wife of Faith's date shows up toddler in tow and gleefully calls her whore Ten times I was uncomfortable with the depictions of no class gold digger Lorena and Faith's grandparents who can't say a word to each other that doesn't contain an insult I was uncomfortable when a blind date starts whimsically grilling Faith about whether she likes to be tied up completely ignoring her obvious distaste And I was enraged when a blind date for Faith's father turns out to be a she male to everyone's horror and amusement Humor at the expense of a marginalized minority is ugly and mean spirited And that's when I stopped wanting to read Jeremy's story because who knows what might happen in it I had a hard time even finishing this book and I had to rate it down because my enjoyment was significantly spoiled Here two stars doesn't mean it was okay because it was not okay It's just my acknowledgement that there was much about the story that was worth readingreviewed from e arc provided by netgalley
