Basically the Best Man is your typical sweet contemporary romance. However, what sets it apart from other books is that Higgans voice. Her books are funny and sometimes painfully realistic. She isn't afraid of making you laugh or cry and most often a bit of both.
In the Best Man we meet Faith Holland and Levi Cooper along with a large cast of quirky and endearing characters who will go on to have their own novels in the Blue Heron series. Faith is just getting back into town at the start of the book. Through bit and pieces of flashbacks we learn why she left to begin with. Faith had the perfect relationship with her high school sweet heart that was going to end in a happily ever after, that was until Levi Cooper (war hero, best man, and not much of a talker) stops the wedding because her fiance is gay.
The road to these two opposites coming together and learning to navigate each other's baggage is fun to be a part of. So if you are looking for a great weekend read that is totally addicting check out Kristin Higgans. I have yet to read one that I haven't loved.
