Review: The Best Man (Blue Heron, Book 1) by Kristan Higgins

best manHeroine: Faith Holland was jilted when her fiance’s best friend outs him as gay at the wedding. Ever since, Faith keeps stumbling upon all the wrong men in her quest for love and marriage. The book opens when Faith is on date three with a guy that turns sour fast when his wife shows up and shouts obscenities at her. She has no intentions of returning to her Blue Heron, her hometown, to face her ex, but then her sister calls and tells her about a gold digger who is making plays at their father so she rushes home… only to get pulled over –

Hero: Police Chief Levi Cooper broke up the wedding because he knew it would make Jeremy miserable in the long run and he wanted the best for his friend. He’s never been a fan of Princess Super-Cute (hated this nickname, and Levi never gives her another one) so it wasn’t for her benefit and he couldn’t care less if she forgave him for it. After a disastrous month-long marriage to a woman in the forces, Levi is determined to only date women who will stay and Faith is certainly not that woman.

Review: I liked the friendship between Levi and Jeremy, and I also liked how Faith and Jeremy were able to shift gears into being friends. It seemed important if the three of them were going to live in the same small town. The best scene was Faith stuck in the bathroom window –

“Is there a problem here ma’am?”

“Nope, just taking in the view.”

“Me too. Nice night isn’t it?”

“It is. It’s beautiful.”

“What happened to your shirt?”

“I, um…I had a wardrobe malfunction.”

“I see. […] So, what happened?”

“I flushed my sweater down the toilet.”

“That happens to me all the time.”

Keira’s favorite type of heroes are blind, scarred, and tortured… yes, she understands those should be separate, but all 3 at once is also nice! She enjoys historical romances best and adores audio books because great narrators turn books into auditory/mental movies (and she loves her romantic dramas like Pride and Prejudice/North and South!)
