The Best Man by Kristin Higgins

(from the back cover) 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 fiance.  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 rose, she just might find a reason to stay at Blue Heron, and finish that walk down the aisle.
Praise for The Best Man

Emotional resonance balances zany antics in a powerful story that feels completely real.

Author Kristan Higgins

Bloggers have to love Kristan Higgins – like  most of us, she started writing while her kids were napping.  Where would our world be if kids didn’t nap?  Kristan (I feel like I can call her by her first name after reading this book, she’s just like that!) lives in Connecticut and knows the important things to look for when choosing a place to live.  “I live in my hometown, a small, pretty place in Connecticut where there’s a beautiful library and a wicked good ice cream stand.”  I know, right?

Here’s an exclusive to KLY (squee!) excerpt:

‘I’ll call you. Are you free this weekend?’ Another test passed. Available on weekends. Faith had felt a flutter; he hadn’t been on a fourth date since she was eighteen years old. ‘I think I’m free on Friday,’ she murmured.

They stood on the sidewalk, waiting for a cab as tourists streamed into souvenir shops to buy sweatshirts, having been tricked into thinking that late August in San Francisco meant summer. Clint leaned in and kissed her and Faith let him. It had been a good kiss.  Very competent. There was potential in that kiss, she thought. Then a taxi emerged from the gloom of the famed fog, and Clint waved it over.

And so, in preparation of the fourth date—which would possibly be the date, when she finally slept with someone other than Jeremy—here she was, parked in front of his apartment, binoculars trained on his windows. Looked as if he was watching the ball game.

Time to call her sister.

‘He passes,’ Faith said by way of greeting.

‘You have a problem, hon,’ said Pru. ‘Open your heart and all that crap Jeremy was eons ago’.

‘This has nothing to do with Jeremy,’ Faith said, ignoring the answering snort. ‘I’m a little worried about his name, though. Clint Bundt. It’s abrupt. Clint Eastwood, sure that works. But on anyone else, I don’t know. Clint and Faith. Faith and Clint. Faith Bundt.’

 It was much less pleasing than, oh, say Faith and Jeremy or Jeremy and Faith. Not that she was hung up on the past or anything.
