The Perfect Match (Blue Heron #2) by Kristan Higgins

This is the second in the Blue Heron series but can be read stand-alone.  I came late to Ms. Higgins and have been devouring everything of hers I can find.  She just keeps getting better and better.  She writes sweet romance with some steamy fade to black love scenes.  But she tells a great story and I adore her characters.

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 loved seeing under Honor’s perfect façade.  She was so strong and perfect in The Best Man (Blue Heron #1) but you just knew there was something going on that was going to make her crack.  I LOVE Tom flaws and all.  It is so nice to see a positive male role model.  This book left me with a smile on my face and a glow in my heart.

A reminder that a portion of first week sales of THE PERFECT MATCH goes to Fisher House Foundation, which provides a home away from home for military families when a loved one is in the hospital. http://tinyurl.com/ThePerfectMatch-Amazon
