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. --Aleksandra Walker

Faith's girl parts gave a might tingle.
An icicle sliced through the warm curls of lust that were starting in her girl parts.
Her girl parts purred as she stared.
Faith's girl parts gave a sudden hard tug.
That just annoys me. And the lengths that they go to not to swear. Just don't swear, you don't have to make it obvious that if they weren't such nice girls they would be swearing but, hey, they've got all these cute words they use instead.
So why not a lower score if it annoyed me that much? Because I bought the next book. It annoyed me too, but I bought it and listened to it, so I can't give it a lower rating than this. I cared enough about the some of the characters to want to know more.
On the other hand if those were my grandparents they would never see me. I just don't find bickering constantly to be entertaining in any way. I've known too many people who denigrate their spouses constantly. These people talk worse about one another than most divorced people I've known. It's not funny or cute, it's not a healthy relationship and I don't want to spend so much time hearing people talk that badly about their spouses. Some of the reviews really like the grandparents. I just don't get that.
Overall, I enjoyed the book as a somewhat guilty pleasure. The writing, character development, and plot(s) were all well done. A couple of minor things irritated me though.
1) while the writer exhibited a "modern and progressive" acceptance of the gay ex, I was disappointed in the disparaging treatment of the transgendered character (likely not a transvestite as indicated in the novel). Granted the comments and response were not totally without tolerance, but a little research would have allowed for greater sensitivity in that scene.
2) using the phrase "hemorrhoid" as a curse is just distracting and ick. "He's such a hemorrhoid." "Oh, hemorrhoid . . . " IDK just bugged me.
This series may very well be the only Romance series that I've actually read more than one of.
This particular book is about Faith Holland and her life sort of. She's a very likable character and seems unfairly burdened with life's challenges. She's tough and she's a trooper and I liked that about her.
There is one moment in this book that I found very sweet and tender between she and Levi and I kind of loved it.
The painintheass Levi is EVERYWHERE Faith looks. He is also a painful reminder of everything (Jeremy) she lost. Levi is the reason she is not happily married. He ruined her wedding (at least in her mind). Levi wants NOTHING to do with Princess. She is so innocent and blind, she could not see what was right in front of her.
