If the best man and maid of honor are both single, it’s practically an unwritten rule that they should pork.
…so begins a rocky acquaintance between Jean-Christian “J.C.” Rousseau and Libitz Feingold at the wedding of J.C.’s brother and Lib’s best friend. While manslut best man J.C. is surprised when maid of honor Libitz soundly spurns his advances, his curiosity is piqued. The girl he couldn’t have becomes the only one he wants.
So, when he finds a seventy-year-old portrait in the attic of his sister’s mansion that bears an uncanny resemblance to the prickly gallery owner, he enlists her help in solving a mystery seven decades in the making. Traveling from Philadelphia to New York to Marseille, a couple who started off as enemies will discover that even cynics can find true love…and mortal man is no match for destiny.

About the Author
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.
Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.
Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.
In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.
Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book was awesome! I've read all the books in the blueberry lane series and couldn't wait for this one. That being said though, this story does standalone and you don't need to read the others first, although I think it adds more to the story to have read about the characters before in other couples stories.
This series really does keep getting better and better, which I've got to say is pretty rare. No staleness here. Each story is completely unique, each character different in looks and personalities so that each new instalment feels fresh and new. Like I said that's pretty rare, at least in my case, I have little patience for series but I'm no where near giving up on this one.
We've met JC and Lib before. JC's brother is married to Lib's best friend. There's a definite attraction that leaps off the page between the two of them but they both have their own preconceived ideas and opinions of the other that push them away from that. That and the fact that they've both been asked to be god parents to the afore mentioned couples child and they don't want to make things awkward. Well throw in a mystery that they're both trying to solve and those intentions kind of go out of the window lol.
I loved both their characters and reading about their journey, how both their efforts to deny their attraction were for nought in the end. They were neither of them perfect but I instantly connected with them and was invested in their happiness.
This book was funny and romantic, sweet but plenty hot, but had a little intrigue as well. It gripped me from the get go and I loved every second. The only thing that I didn't like was that it had to end. I didn't want to let go of these characters so soon.
This was another great instalment to this fantastic series and I can't wait for the next one.
