Synopsis (from Goodreads)
What if the perfect match is a perfect surprise? Honor Holland has just been unceremoniously rejected by her lifelong crush. And now—a mere three weeks later—Mr. Perfect is engaged to her best friend. But resilient, reliable Honor is going to pick herself up, dust herself off and get back out there
or she would if dating in Manningsport, New York, population 715, wasn't easier said than done.
Charming, handsome British professor Tom Barlow just wants to do right by his unofficial stepson, Charlie, but his visa is about to expire. Now Tom must either get a green card or leave the States—and leave Charlie behind.
In a moment of impulsiveness, Honor agrees to help Tom with a marriage of convenience—and make her ex jealous in the process. But juggling a fiancé, hiding out from her former best friend and managing her job at the family vineyard isn't easy. And as sparks start to fly between Honor and Tom, they might discover that their pretend relationship is far too perfect to be anything but true love
I discovered Kristan Higgins about six months ago from a status update of a book blogger that I follow fairly regularly. She was excited about the release of the first in the Blue Heron Series ( The Best Man ) and posted about the book. Intrigued, and always looking for something new to read, I hopped on to the library website and placed a hold on the book. I was hooked, and since then have read each of Higgins' titles. So, when the second of the Blue Heron books was set to release this month, I was counting down the days until October 29th (the release date).
I read the book in about one day and loved it just as much as the rest. Higgins has such fantastic, fun characters. Her style is a bit snarky, but the stories really are sweet, and heartwarming. Her heroes...um, yeah they are fantastic. And in The Perfect Match you will love our Tom from across the pond. Really, who can resist the accent?
But this and other books by Higgins are more than just the two central characters. It really has a wonderful supporting cast of characters. The whole Holland family will have you laughing at their antics. The supporting characters really help to drive the story along and keep you interested in more than just what happens to Honor and Tom. Your heart will ache for Charlie and you want to smack Dana a few times for how she treats Honor.
My rating: 5 stars!
Content: This book is definitely for adults. It has a bit of language here and there and has bedroom scenes and other suggestive topics of discussion in the book.
