"The Perfect Match" by Kristan Higgins was a sweet contemporary romance that has women's fiction and chick lit written all over it. This is an interesting story of Honor Holland who was a middle child from a good family. Honor's family owned the 'Blue Heron Vineyards and she worked and lived on the property with her dog. All was good for Honor. She was in her mid-thirties, had been in love with someone who did not love her, but she is now yearning for a family of her own. So, when a 'British Buy' (friend) needed a 'green card' to be able to stay in the US to work and maintain the upkeep of his stepson (Charlie)...will she be willing to help Tom Barlow out by marrying him? Really? Now, who did she get this information from? Would you believe from Honor's grandmother!
Now, to really see what is going on you will have to pick up this good read to see how this author brings it all together. We find Tom the Englishman very full of humor (with tattoo on his shoulders). You will find yourself laughing out loud from the read and I will add that he is hot! For Honor... I smiled at the eggs that actually spoke to her. You will find out all about that by reading the book. I enjoyed how the author was able to keep this read a PG romance.
Be ready for heartbreak, romance and humor. We find from the story that Honor had stayed after her mother died to help pick up the pieces and had become the perfect daughter, but now she was wanting something else in her life. Would there be an attraction growing between her and Tom? Will Honor fall in love with Tom and what happens when the man she loved refuses to believe he has the capacity to love you back?
There was a very serious side to this novel and that was about the stepson Charlie who Tom so desperately wanted to help. Why was Charlie so angry and sad? Truly Tom loves the boy. I found the characters all so interesting as well as captivating with some of their craziness and dramatic moments that will have you laughing at from it all.
If you are looking for a sweet romance of a 'tight knit family' you have come to the right place for this author brings it all to the reader. I recommend "The Perfect Match" as a good read.
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….
