Karen Hudgins’ gripping narrative is stitched together with the same extraordinary precision and artistry as her beguiling heroine Geneva puts into her wedding couture. BEST MAN wins your heart from page one and harkens back to the gilded age of great works of literature such as Edith Wharton’s The House of Mirth. R.S.V.P. to this invitation because Best Man is an affair you do not want to miss.”

BEST MAN is delightful from start to finish! Karen Hudgins brought Missouri wine country to life and filled it with characters you’ll quickly fall in love with. A must-read for those who enjoy strong, feisty heroines and well-written stories packed with romance.
Like the fine wines in this story, Karen Hudgins twists and turns the bottle in this captivating story, producing a very juicy tale of friendship, intrigue, and romance.
Deanna M. Noga,
BEST MAN is another winner for Karen! From the very beginning I fell in love with Doug and Geneva. You will be draw into their attraction to each other under unusual circumstances. This one has mystery, romance, and new beginnings that will keep you turning the pages to their happily-ever-after. This is a must buy!
BEST MAN is one of the best books I have read in a long time, and to top that off it contains everything I like and look for in a contemporary piece. Karen Hudgins hits the mark with this story and shows us a modern couple who have hit it off literally from the start, and it never lets up and only gets better. This is a keeper for my book shelf, and I’m glad of it.

BEST MAN is a sexy and absorbing story with characters you feel you know already. Great fun!
The sweet sentimentality of BEST MAN is like curling up with your favorite blanket, or person. Reading Hudgins’s novel offers a chance to join the party of one of the most prestigious, exclusive VP weddings in Coventry, wine country Missouri. It’s a personal invitation to the wedding of the year.
