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.… (mehr)

I initially had no idea when I selected this book for review that I had read the first book in the series and did not finish it. That first book was pretty bad in my opinion so it was with trepidation when I started this one since I thought I had unintentionally shot myself in the foot.

My general opinion of this book in Kristan Higgin's "Blue Heron series" was this was an okay romance book.

The second in Kristan Higgin's Blue Heron series follows Honor Holland who is the sister of Faith whose romance was showcased in the first book, "The Best Man." I actually remember Honor a little bit from the first book in the series and actually liked her in that one and ended up despising her sister Faith.

In this book we have Honor finally deciding to propose to her childhood best friend and sometimes lover, Brogan. Holland and Brogan have a friends with benefits situation (dear women everywhere this never works out well for you) and is crushed when she finally asks him to marry her, that Brogan turns her down. Surprises are in store when she finds out that Brogan is now engaged to her best friend Dana. Honor finds herself despairing about what happens next when she meets Tom Barlow. Tom moved to New York from England to be close to his almost stepson Charlie. If Tom doesn't find a way to stay in the states he will have to return home. Tom thinks that a paper marriage to Honor will help him stay in the U.S. and Honor wants to show the world that she is doing okay after Brogan and Dana get together.

So the above shows a very typical romance ploy used in other novels and though parts of it do work (the heat between Honor and Tom was great) I really wanted Honor to stand up for herself more in this book. It didn't help though besides the interaction between Honor and Tom the book really fell flat. There was very little interaction between Honor and her sister or for that matter any other characters. Anytime she got together with her family it was just chaotic and I could not follow a thing.

Regarding the main plot point regarding Holland trying to get over what her best friend did to her I have to say that everything that happened was a bit too much. I know all readers have probably heard of bro code but there is also girl code too and I completely despised the character of Dana so kudos to Ms. Higgins for eliciting such a reaction from me. That said, the character of Dana became such a cartoon villain that I wanted to smack her and the character of Brogan for being deaf, dumb, and blind when it came to seeing who he was actually engaged to.

Please note that I received this book for free via the Amazon Vine Program. ( )

4.5 stars.

In The Perfect Match, Kristan Higgins puts a unique and humorous spin on the familiar marriage of convenience storyline. In this delightfully charming second installment in the Blue Heron series, Honor Holland agrees to marry Tom Barlow so he can remain in the US to stay near the son of his heart, Charlie. Sounds simple, but their plan is quickly complicated by a surprising attraction, unwanted emotions and a surly teenager. Add Honor's eclectic family to the mix and you have a romance that will warm your heart and keep you laughing out loud at their outrageous antics.

Honor is the responsible one in the Holland family. A workaholic in the family winery, Honor is still living at home with her widowed father when her comfortable world begins to crumble. Her long time friends with benefits guy pal rejects her marriage proposal then turns around and becomes engaged to her "best" friend. Her dad decides it is time to hire an assistant for Honor so she can get a life. So when her grandmother encourages her to meet Tom, the nephew of one of her friends, Honor reluctantly agrees to meet the British professor.

Tom was pretty damaged by his previous relationship with Charlie's mom, so he has plenty of barriers in place when he first meets Honor. He agrees to marry her, but they decide to take things slow and get to know one another before they marry. They move in together, but they are incredibly awkward with one another. Tom is flirty and affectionate with her in public, but behind closed doors, he keeps an emotional distance from her.

One of the absolute best things about Tom is his unconditional love for Charlie. His heart is fully invested in the moody teenager and his patience with him is endless. Of course Charlie's surly, prickly attitude is understandable given the loss of his mother, his grandparents indifference and his absentee father. The only good thing in Charlie's life is Tom's steady presence and their relationship begins to blossom once Honor enters the picture but their fragile bond is threatened by a person from Charlie's past.

The romance between Tom and Honor is slow growing and full of sexual tension. Neither of them are willing to risk their hearts so they tend to be a little closed off from one another. It takes about half the novel for them to get together and even then their relationship continues to be a work in progress. Just when it looks like Tom and Honor have a real chance at happiness, a major obstacle stops them in their tracks.

Honor's crazy family is on tap to provide plenty of support and laughter throughout the story. Pru and husband Carl are still going at it hot and heavy, much to everyone's chagrin. Levi and Faith are still in the honeymoon stage and Faith quickly rivals Pru when it comes to oversharing intimate details. Jack is still the same clueless, happy go lucky brother. The siblings' grandparents are still squabbling and resisting all efforts to move them into a retirement home. And an unexpected romance for their long widowed dad takes everyone by surprise.

The Perfect Match is another outstanding romance from Kristan Higgins. A beautiful mix of humor and seriousness, it is an engrossing story with appealing and realistic characters. An all around feel good read that will touch your heart, I highly recommend this latest addition to the Blue Heron series. ( )

I LOVED this book! It made me laugh a lot.. I'd forgotten how funny Higgins is! All the characters are so lovable. I love this little world of Blue Heron she's created. Kept me up until the wee hours in the morning! Can't wait to read the next book! ( )
