THE PERFECT MATCH by Kristan Higgins
HARLEQUIN

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 fianc√©, 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…


4 1/2 STARS!

I love Kristin Higgins and she never disappoints! Her humor is the best medicine. Tie that in with a hunky hero and a sweet heroine and you have a perfect book! 

Two people are "forced" together to help each other out, but in the end they realize they are the perfect match for one another. I loved Tom and his British accent along with his colloquialisms. And a tortured hero always tugs at my heart. Tom's rough past has to do with a woman who cheated on him and a step-son that he loves. Seeing the relationship between Tom and Charlie build also had me falling for him! Honor is everyone's "go to" woman. She's trustworthy, honest and reliable. Poor thing gets a kick in the heart and takes desperate measures so that she can have a family of her own. 

I did find the beginning slow -- I wanted Tom and Honor to connect sooner, but when they finally did, the pacing picked up. 

A great read! Can't wait to see more from the Blue Heron series! That family is one of my faves.
