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….

Honor is in the middle of the family and has always been the core of the family. She has always taken on the brunt of the family by doing a lot of
work at the vineyard and for the family, but her personal life may have taken a hit due to all of the things she took on.
I think I liked this one even more than the first. I knew the characters and was able to get into the story from the first page. Honor had more ups and downs and her story felt so real - trying to balance her full time professional life and large extended family while also making time to find love. I loved that Honor had a love story that started out like her, very business, but eventually she found the heart in it.
