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….
Another great one
I immediately read this after "The Best Man" and this book didn't disappoint either. I loved Honor's story and I connected with her story a little more because of her feelings for her "first love" and how conflicted she was in life. I can't wait for the next book in this series!
The Perfect Match
Enjoyed this book immensely. Good character development. Clever story and interesting characters.
The Good and Bad
I loved and hated reading this book. Kristan Higgins is a great writer, and her stories are always compelling. Having said that, I spent entirely too much of this book tense; there were so many scenes I just wanted to get past so I could enjoy the resolution. I actually had trouble getting to sleep last night, as I left off at an awkward moment that had my brain stirred up. I suppose that a compliment to Ms. Higgins' writing... I did have a little trouble understanding Honor's cluelessness in regard to Brogan and Dana, and it took way too long for thelove story to resolve, but overall it's worth all the tension and sleeplessness.
