I don't know...Definitely in the running for my Favorite Higgins Romance...LOVED THIS BOOK!


Sometimes the best man is the one you least expect...

…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 fiancĂ©. 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 rosĂ©, she just might find a reason to stay at Blue Heron, and finish that walk down the aisle.

And those abs...rippled and hypnotic and magically perfect.  Yes.  Levi Cooper was a sparkly unicorn of wonder. doesn't get any better than that...ok...actually THE BEST MAN had me cracking up four pages in...Again I say...this might just be my Favorite Higgins Romance yet!  And Faith far as heroine's go...she ranks top on my list...She was just freakin hysterical... I loved everything about her from her snarky comebacks to her huge heart.  She just wanted to be able to show her face in town and not have everyone give her "that look"...yes that look...or one of those looks from Levi's Boredom Scale.  Levi Cooper...swoon... those arms, is it really legal to have arms like that?  haha!  The banter between these two was on the money, rolling on my ass funny with a twist of too much sexual tension...SO FREAKN FUNNY!

"You know what I wonder, Levi? Why are some people such hemorrhoids?  You ever wonder that?"
As you will get with all of Kristan Higgins' romances, we have an amazing cast of secondary characters who just MAKE THE STORY.  John, Goggy, Honor, Jack, Pru, Carl, Ned, Abby and Sarah.  The interactions between Faith and her family are sometimes laughable and sometimes they will break your heart.  Holding onto a secret for that long can be a huge strain on anyones shoulders, but poor Faith...more crap just piled on...Speaking of hiding secrets...

Oh Jeremy...what a ruckus you caused for Ms. Faith...but I forgive you...Princess Super-Cute finds her prince after all. 

Sex with a straight guy- definitely the way to go
But I think what might take the cake for me is the relationship between Faith's sister Pru and her husband Carl...I couldn't stop laughing every time she would mention the newest "request" from Carl...Poor Ned...There is just no un-reading a dirty text that wasn't meant for you!!

THE BEST MAN is Higgins at her BEST!!  Faith Holland absolutely steals your heart! As with every Higgins Romance, you will roll on the floor laughing, have yourself an "Ugly Cry" and then read it all over again.  I SIMPLY LOVE IT!!

If you can only purchase ONE book in 2013...this is it!!
