The winemaking Holland family, first introduced in The Best Man (2013), returns in Higgins’ latest Blue Heron romance. Middle sister Honor has been so focused on growing the family business, she hasn’t started her own family. She’s then humiliated when her lifelong friend and occasional hookup partner, Brogan, turns down her misguided marriage proposal. Enter Tom Barlow, a British professor who needs a green card to stay in the country and remain close to his dead fiancée’s son. After a blind date, Honor and Tom impulsively decide to enter a marriage of convenience. Of course, once they’re living together for their sham engagement, their natural chemistry leads to what inconveniently seems like real love. Higgins once again blends sweet romance, quirky humor, and realistic emotion in a story that will keep readers entranced. Fans will also enjoy checking in with Faith and Levi and the other Hollands who make cameo appearances. --Aleksandra Walker
