Faith Holland left her hometown after she discovered - at the church - that her soon to be husband is gay. To say she was destroyed is an understatement. Their hometown was not big enough for the both of them, so she ran. Clear to the other side of the country. A few years has passed and she is ready to return to her hometown and her family's winery, The Blue Herron. What she does not expect to find is that the new Chief of Police is the very handsome best friend of her former fiance.
It doesn't take long for Faith to work her way back into the family fold. Her siblings are trying to find a suitable mate for their widowed father, an act that Faith throws herself into wholeheartedly, especially since she feels it is her fault that her mother died in that horrific car accident all those years ago. Faith's father is not the only one sensing that love is in the air, the sparks between Levi, the handsome Chief, and Faith are undeniable. But will Faith be able to forgive him for his part in her thwarted wedding?
The Best Man was a fun book to read. Faith is a feisty character with a feisty family that reminded me a bit of my own family. I can understand her hesitation of going home after being publicly humiliated, small towns have long memories, don't ya know? The chemistry between Faith and Levi was sizzling and really added to the story. And of course, there was an adorable puppy dog at the heart of everything.
Bottom line, Kristan Higgins is quickly moving to the top of my "must read authors" list. She always infuses her characters with the kind of characteristics I seek in my friends, especially the humor. I always find myself laughing out loud while reading her books and that is a must have quality in my favorite authors.
