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 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.

took me a while to get into the story

I just was not overly pulled into the story the first half, there were so many obstacles, and the heroine let everyone walk on her.(SPOILER) the relationship, 17 YEARS? Really, a little overdone and shows her to be a doormat. She kind of over thought everything and that got a little annoying. If she had been coasting for maybe 5 years, but 17? No. Having said that the author is very thorough in description, plot, story and the build up of relationships, but just my reader opinion it took an overly long time to get to the end result, last third of the book felt more in tune and more interesting.

Another perfect story from Kristan Higgins

This book was so good I listened to it two times in a row and still loved it! Kristan Higgins writes the best scenes where the heroine is mortified and then digs her out of them. In the Perfect Match, Honor Holland embarrasses herself by showing up at her on-again-off-again lover's house in just her Burberry coat in an attempt to convince him that getting married is a good idea. Of course it doesn't go well and she finds herself single and alone at the age of 35 with no marital prospects in site. A couple weeks later she finds out her best friend is now engaged to that same ex-lover and the two girls get into a cat fight at the local bar. When the opportunity to meet her grandmother's pen pal's nephew arises, she sets up a meeting with him where they don't exactly hit it off. The story gets better and better from there and pretty soon you're totally engrossed in finding out if poor Honor will ever find happiness. I loved the hero of this story - he saves Honor numerous times from danger or humiliation. The part of the story where they found a snake in her grandparents' basement made me laugh hysterically just visualizing the whole scene. If you like romance stories that touch your heart, do yourself a favor and get this book, you'll love it!

OK story, but not the narration

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Maybe the book, not the audio version.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator detracted from the story. Her accents were terrible. The hero, Tom, sounded like a Aussie rather than a Brit from Manchester, England. And the sisters, especially the oldest, Pru, sounded like Valley Girls from the 1980s. And the term "mate" was definitely overused.

Was The Perfect Match worth the listening time?

Although by the half-way point I was thoroughly disappointed in the narration, I listened all the way through to see how the author would play out the story.

Any additional comments?

I listened to the first book in the series, The Best Man, and, while it had flaws, it was rather cute and the narration seemed to work. But this book just didn't have the same feeling. I very quickly became tired of the heroine's, Honor, lovesickness over her "friend-with-benefits." I just felt as if the moping went on too long. If I had read the book first, I might have felt different, but by the middle of the story I wanted to say "grow up and move on already." And the hero often came across as a self-serving pain in the butt. I won't waste my time or money on the rest of the series. A shame, too, since I generally like Kristan Higgins.

Great overall story.

The story itself was very good. The reader had the worst English accent I've ever heard. It was distracting to listen to and took away from the story telling.

So fun and funny!

I really like Kristan Higgins books, but this one has the best humorous element so far - without lacking deeper feelings. Loved it! Especially the dialog from”the eggs”😆

The Perfect Match

Another good one by this author and you don't have to read the first one in the series first but I recommend it just because that one was good too. Honor has a shock when she goes to the doc for her yearly physical and finds out her biological clock is ticking way too loud and if she wants babies she better get busy. When she hears this she proposes to the man she has been sleeping with off and on only to find out he doesn't feel the same. Oh joy. Then a couple months later he asks her to join him at the bar only to find out he has proposed to her best friend. This was the first time Tom saw Honor, when she was in a bar fight with another woman. These two circle each other and it was spectacular to watch. They fought it and each other and forces beyond their control but sometimes being the perfect match just rules out. Definitely a keeper!

Good but not great

The narrator’s British accent is crappy. And I could’ve used a bit more swoon. I think Higgins waits too long to tie everything together. It’s always literally the last 2 pages or ten minutes. But it feels like mediocre pacing.

Enjoyable, except for narration

Overall enjoyed very much, despite a few predictable moments and cringes, but narrator had a difficult time with the accent of the love interest. Definitely took me out of the story a few times.

Best one in series, so far.

This is the best one of this series so far, IMHO. I laughed, cried, cringed at the characters' stubbornness, etc. Best ending, too.

Kleinstadt -Friede Freude .... oder -Grauen

Anfangs wollte ich abbrechen. Es schnürt sich einem etwas die Kehle zu in diesem Kleinstadtleben, wo jeder jeden kennt, kommentiert und mit jedem bekannt ist. Viele der beschriebenen Leute sind wenig nett und es scheint dadurch so viele Notlödungen zu geben. Man gibt sich halt zufrieden, viel anderes ist ja nichg zu erwarten. und alle mischen sich bei allen ein.
Im weiteren Verlauf entwickelte Honor etwas mehr Rückgrat, ich dachte, nun höre ichs doch zuende. Der ganze Dating Quatsch und die tiefe, ehrliche Liebe, die dann -wenn einmal entwickelt- ziemlich schmalzig gelebt wird, naja, mir wars etwas zuviel, aber die zweite Hälfte des Buchs gefiel mir etwas besser. Mehr aus der Serie brauche ich aber, glaube ich, echt nicht zu lesen/hören.
