Description:


Faith Holland left her hometown after being jilted at the altar. Now a little older and wiser, she's ready to return to the Blue Heron Winery, her family's vineyard, to confront the ghosts of her past, and maybe enjoy a glass of red. After all, there's some great scenery there....


Like Levi Cooper, the local police chief-and best friend of her former fiancé. There's a lot about Levi that Faith never noticed, and it's not just those deep green eyes. The only catch is she's having a hard time forgetting that he helped ruin her wedding all those years ago. If she can find a minute amidst all her family drama to stop and smell the rose, she just might find a reason to stay at Blue Heron, and finish that walk...

My Thoughts: 

What do you do when the man of your dreams winds up gayer than a a three dollar bill?  Well if your Faith Holland you run to San Francisco in hopes that distance will make the situation better.  But when Honor calls her younger sister home, Faith goes home to see what is up.

Entering into town she bumps into Levi Cooper the boy who ruined her wedding by outing the groom.  Faith is spitting mad at him due to history they have dealt with or rather haven't.  Levi Cooper now the Chief of Police writes Faith up for speeding.

Amongst all the ups and downs in this book the best part is the relationship between Levi and Faith which takes a bit to jump start.  The annoying part I think was making Jeremy the gay guy too perfect.  It's a hard pill for Levi to top competing with Jeremy the wonder God.

Otherwise this book was great reading about the people in Faith and Levi's life.  Definitely a great town I love how Kristan is able to weave awesome secondary characters along with the main characters.

I love the dogs on all of her covers. Sometimes they look absolutely nothing like the dog described in the books, but they are still so cute! I enjoy reading her books if I have downtime. they aren't my favorites, but they are pretty cute reads. (: I love your review and I have not read this one yet. But I need to!
