Description:

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 fiancĂ©, 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….

My Thoughts:

Honor has always been the good girl, never doing wild and crazy things but she wants to settle down and find love which she thought she had with a friend of hers, but he didn't feel the spark she felt.  So Honor left him and is out and looking for love.

Tom Barlow has just gotten the worse news possible his work visa is about to be history, the only way to stay now is to find someone to marry him.  Through a relative of Tom's and a relative of Honor's the two get paired up and lie to everyone about the situation.  They have such a mess of a relationship, but amongst it all can they find true love?

I love Kristan's books she has incredible way to put her characters into so much turmoil and some how they get their crap together and it works out.  This book wasn't any different except this I think is the first book dealing with a legal/illegal issue.  Most of her characters are just being stubborn and childish this one dealt with something very real that I'm sure happens a lot.

She has such a great story telling ability you end up falling in love with the characters and wanting them to have their ever afters.  I also love how we go back and see familiar characters.  Her writing reminds me greatly of Sherryl Woods and her series.  They both have very similar writing styles.  Keep up the good work Mrs. Higgins you are a true gem of a writer!
