The Best Man by Kristan Higgins
Faith Holland fled the small New York winery where she grew up for California when she found out her groom was gay. Yep. The man she had dated for YEARS finally tells her right before they are to say “I do.” Apparently, Levi, the Best Man, home on leave from Afghanistan, had a feeling that his best friend was gay and pushed Jeremy to tell Faith before they made a huge mistake. Faith would have been okay with that mistake. She wouldn’t have been humiliated and she could have gone on oblivious married to the man she loved, even though it did feel like something was always missing in her relationship.
It’s been a few years and Faith is finally coming home. Whether or not she’s coming home to stay remains to be seen. She dreads meeting Jeremy again and is still rather mad at Levi, even though she knows deep down she should thank the man. But seeing Levi almost every day, since he’s Chief of Police of their small town and lives in the apartment across the hall, is causing feelings inside her she isn’t sure what to do about. Could her former Best Man be the best man for her?
If you like your romances with a lot of awkward moments and bantering dialogue you’ll love Higgins. Faith’s family is wonderful, but exhausting. How they all survive family gatherings is beyond me. The romance itself is more fun than steamy and it is an extremely quick read.
