Faith Holland was dumped by her fiancee at the alter but not because of another woman. She is devastated that the man she loves will never truly love her back so she leaves. Three years later she is back to help out with her family only to come face to face with Levi Cooper who couldn’t keep quiet about her almost husband.
Levi Cooper was the local police chief of his hometown and three years ago helped stop a wedding that would leave two people unhappy for a life time. He will soon run into his best friends almost bride and will find that he might want to get to know Faith a little more but is weary to be around her still.
The Best Man is the first book of the series Blue Heron from Kristan Higgins. I fell in love with this book. It was mushy, full of emotion, heartwarming and heartbreaking all wrapped up into one story.
I have not read anything from Kristan Higgins before but I liked her detail of the characters as there was a lot of back story of Faith and Levi. You really got to know the characters well and why they act the way they did. Faith was someone you wanted to find that love she craved and for her to really move on to different techniques to finding an eligible man to date and love. It was cute how she deciphered the men but found out that it wasn’t full proof. Now Levi I wasn’t sure I wanted to like. All the time he was petty to Faith and as a character he was hard and stubborn. Of course thanks to the background you understand why he is so tough. I wanted him to loosen up earlier in the book but Higgins will find a way to break the shield he holds onto.
This story had ups and downs all over the place with Faith’s personal life, her family and especially with Levi, but a happy ending does come true.
For a first book to the series I drawn in and am looking forward to finding out more from this series but until then there are several other novels that don’t belong to a series of hers to read.
