Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

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 --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

I really felt that this book was a HFN story rather than a HEA story. Levi was nothing but mean to Faith for most of the book, and for no plausible reason. It is plain as day that he flat out doesn't like her. He only seemed to like her boobs. I don't think he liked her much even after they started having sex (I won't say dating because they never dated. It was just a booty call relationship.). I think Faith was just dazzled by her first foray into the joys of heterosexual sex so she didn't want to notice that Levi had the emotional depth of thimble. How many times does a guy have to look at you with disdain before you get a clue and move on. I see them becoming her grandparents someday. Not very romantic for a romance. The best part of the book was Faith's evolving relationship with Jeremy. That part felt emotional and real to me.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I absolutely loved and hated this book at the same time. There were times I just wanted to just chuck this book and call it a day but I didn't. Then there were times I was so glad I didn't chuck the book and wished it would go on and on. So here is what I loved and hated about the book. Spoilers below.

~Loved~
Levi is such a man's man. He isn't afraid to take charge and do things no matter how mundane and sometimes not in his job description it may be. He is pretty messed up and definitely has some abandonment issues but he doe not at all let them limit his life. He makes lemonade whenever life throws him a lemon. He has sooooo much oozing sex appeal that would make any woman want to purr when he is around.

Faith is able to have a sunny outlook on life no matter what is thrown at her. Fiance who comes out of the closet just before vows, dead mother and all. And when she let's down those walls, oh nellie, boy does she feel. And it is so beautifully emotional.

When there was an emotional scene, ie, the airport scene when Faith breaks down after her almost marriage and a few others after that I cried right next to her. Those scenes are what redeemed the book for me. They were so right in flavor and character and feeling that I sniffed and wiped tears while turning pages. I loved that about the book. Even when Levi finally confronts his past. Man. Just perfect.

The seizure training that was imparted to the reader was unusually great. It is so hard to break the misnomer that items need to be shoved in someones mouth if having a seizure. I love how Kristan Higgins even writes how it is not important to call 911 unless the seizure lasts more than five minutes. It has shocked more than one person when I have instructed them of this.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Do not purchase this book if you are looking for a traditional romance. I persevered through reading it simply because I wanted to be able to review it; giving it the benefit of the doubt. Higgins humor is amusing at first although the rhythm of the book never seemed to be in sync. At times there were sections of hi-jinks from the cast of characters that comprise the Holland family that were supposed to be funny but devolved into more irritating than anything else. Higgins also tried really hard to make this world seem like something out of a Disney Channel show whacky-family-friends story. It got to the point that it started to feel contrived and tiring. The "tension" of the story was so thin that it did not need 350 pages prior to the big "reveal"-by that point I didn't really care.

The characters of Faith and Levi could have been something but Higgins never created any kind of "romance" between them. I read past 200 pages and it was still at the point where Faith doesn't know if he (Levi) can even stand her and when it is told from Levi's point of view it's the same story. There was no true-romance between the two. Levi is depicted as a monosyllabic character that communicates mostly through stares and Faith is annoyingly perky and upbeat. Levi actually has more dialogue and shows more empathy for his gay best friend Jeremy who happens to be the man that dumped Faith at the alter.

Overall I would not recommend this book unless you want a story about a family of seemingly "loveable" characters and two protagonist that have a fling on the periphery of the story that somehow turns into a "relationship" with no explanation as to why or whether they could even stand each other and no true interaction between the two. This book was a test of my endurance to get through-I will not be picking up a Higgins book anytime soon.

At First Sight: Faith Holland ran away from Blue Heron, her family's winery in upstate New York, after her failed attempt to marry her long-time boyfriend Jeremy in what was supposed to be the wedding of the century in their hometown.

Faith had her whole life planned next to Jeremy, someone who was kind and awesome and always made her feel special, but it all went south when Jeremy came out on the day of their wedding and basically left her at the altar.

In the years since, distance has given her a little perspective, not that she's ready to forgive the one person who caused all her heartbreak: Levi Cooper, Jeremy's best friend, who interrupted the wedding and sort of gave Jeremy the nudge he needed.

But when a family emergency prompts her to go back home for an extended period of time, there is no way she can avoid Jeremy, or Levi for that matter.

Levi grew up on the wrong side of the tracks of their small town - his father left when he was little, and his mom struggled to make ends-meet. He was more surprised than anyone when Jeremy picked him to be his best friend, but friends they were and have remained ever since.

He didn't mean to hurt Faith, he just wanted to keep his friend from making a mistake. And now he's happy living in town, being the police chief and dealing with all the disasters big and small of his town, even if half the people that now love and respect him don't remember how they thought he was bad news when he was growing up, just because his family wasn't rich.

He never really thought he would have to deal with Faith again - or Princess Super Cute as he and his high school girlfriend used to call her - but suddenly she's everywhere.
