Booklist Reviews 2013 February #1

Having set out for new territory after being left at the altar by her high-school sweetheart, Jeremy, Faith Holland has returned home to work at her family's vineyard and help her widowed father find love, even though she's been unlucky in love herself. Back home she's forced to confront her former fiancé's best man, Levi, now the town sheriff, who precipitated their wedding-day breakup by revealing that Jeremy is gay. The old animosity between the two gives way to chemistry, especially when they become neighbors and friends, helping each other heal from past heartbreak. Popular romance author Higgins has crafted an appealing novel about second chances. Faith's family is quirky and charming, and her efforts to set up her father and rekindle the romance between her bickering grandparents are heartwarming. But readers will really swoon for the surly-turned-sensitive Sheriff Levi, who proves that he cared about Faith and her feelings right from the start. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.

LJ Reviews 2013 February #2

Literally left standing at the altar when her groom (and longtime best friend) reluctantly comes out of the closet on their wedding day, landscape architect Faith Holland leaves her small New York town and heads west. But San Francisco is far from fertile romantic ground and after more than three years away, she misses home. So when a family crisis beckons, Faith heads back to the Finger Lakes and her family's Blue Heron Winery, hoping to lay the past to rest and carve out a future. She never imagines she'll fall in love with Levi Cooper, the local police chief and the man she blames for her wedding day disaster. VERDICT With a brilliant combination of priceless humor, crackerjack dialog, and insightful characterization, Higgins spins a realistic, touching tale of heartbreak, healing, and homecoming graced with an abundance of people you want to know better and a stunning, bucolic setting you won't want to leave. Higgins (Somebody To Love) lives in Connecticut.

Faith Holland left town after her groom, Jeremy, left her at the altar. Now she's returning home—a little older, a little wiser, but still struggling in the relationship department. Meanwhile, Jeremy's best friend, Levi Cooper, has become the local sheriff, and Faith is not at all happy to run into him again, especially as she and Levi fight their attraction to each other. Can these two let their guard down enough to acknowledge their true feelings? VERDICT Higgins is a brilliant storyteller, filling her novel with zany situations, humorous dialog, and realistic characters.

PW Reviews 2013 January #1

The path to love is bumpy and strewn with landmines in this surprisingly deep charmer from rom-com queen Higgins (Somebody to Love). Jeremy Lyon admits to Faith Holland that he's gay—moments before they were supposed to be wed. It takes three years of self-imposed exilefrom her upstate New York hometown for heartbroken Faith to recover. She returns to find her grandparents feuding and her father embarking on a wholly inappropriate romance. She also runs into police chief Levi Cooper; she thinks he's super-hot but resents him for never telling her Jeremy's secret. As she navigates the perils of dating again, family drama, and an identity crisis, perky Faith is slowly revealed as deeply human, deeply troubled, and deeply in need of self-forgiveness and love. Levi is a stalwart and appealing good guy rounded out with an Afghanistan-scarred psyche and a constant struggle to fully accept his working-class background. Emotional resonance balances zany antics in a powerful story that feels completely real. (Mar.)
