Book Review: "The Best Man" by Kristan Higgins
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 scen... more »ery 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 is the first book I have ever read by this author. I decided to give it a chance as I have heard good reviews on the book.
I have to admit, I did not like it at first. I thought Faith was shallow. I thought Levi was a jerk who had something stuck if you know what I mean. I couldn't get into the storyline or the characters. Usually when I am reading a book I am captured by the setting, characters, and/or all. It really didn't get off the ground for me too much for me.
I ended thinking the book was 'ok' and saw it was the start of a series. I might give her another try. We will see.
