What to expect

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 fianc├®, 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.

“Higgins takes the familiar marriage-of-convenience trope and modernizes it with her consummate skill in combining tender insight, bright humor, and flawless character development. This, the second of the Blue Heron series, shines with Higgins’ capacity for creating complicated layers ultimately laid bare to the most elemental emotions. Another delightful, funny, yet heart-wrenching must-read romance from Higgins.”

Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“All the usual Higgins hijinks…Truly human emotions and pains that make them characters to root for.”

Publishers Weekly

“Zingy dialog and hilarious asides…pair with thoroughly appealing characters and plenty of Finger Lake country charm to make this refreshing riff on the classic marriage-of-convenience plot a delightfully unorthodox, captivating winner.”

Library Journal

“Higgins is one of those authors you can always count on for a great story. The characters are so familiar, they could be your neighbors.
