The only thing that could have made this a sweeter love story is chocolate. Faith could be viewed by those around her as a sad character. She's epileptic, and lost her mother at a young age. To top that off, she was left at the altar by the man who had claimed to love her since high school. How was she supposed to know he was gay? She has always blamed his best friend, Levi for the whole incident, because he appeared to be the only person on the planet who noticed.
After fleeing home for years, Faith has returned to find everyone is just as she left them, except for one. Levi is now home from the Army, and chief of police. She can handle the pity, and probably even regain the friendship she's held so dear with her ex. The real question is, can she forgive the man who was always on the sidelines of her life?
Higgins is one of my favorite authors. Her tender stories bring a smile, and often a few tears as they are savored like a glass of wine from the Blue Heron winery run by Faith's family.
