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 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.
This book was very cute.  Higgin's wrote a sweet story that had a definite twist to the usual romantic plot.  The characters were well developed and I liked learning about them and reading their love story.  I liked the hero quite a bit more than I liked the heroine though.  While she was nice and had moments of humor, she had a tendency to go a little dorky.  And I got a little tired of hearing about her support garments. 
The Best Man was fun to read because it was light and friendly.  While the outcome was predictable (and in most romance novels it is), it was an entertaining read.  I wouldn't go to Kristan for high stakes suspense or for steamy love scenes, because that's not what she writes.  But if you're looking for a sweet story where the characters have great chemistry and a little humor, then I definitely recommend The Best Man.
