A Foothills Pride Story

Sometimes love sneaks up when you’re least looking for it….

Zeke Bandy, owner of Bandy’s Finest Hotel in Old Town Stone Acres, California, is too busy for love. Not only does he oversee the operations of the historic hotel and uphold his family’s tradition of offering refuge to strays and runaways, Zeke also sings and plays down-home music two nights a week at the Stonewall Saloon and for occasional celebrations. Then Zeke meets Victor Longbow, the man of his dreams.

Vic isn’t looking for love either. In fact, because of his upbringing in a strict, white foster family, Vic’s not sure he believes in love. He’s in Stone Acres to open a branch office of a national brokerage firm. He’s also hoping to find a vintage photo of what might be his Native American ancestor.

After their paths cross, they become friends, then more. Connected by their experiences as orphans raised by flawed fathers, Zeke and Vic realize that some men must find love, hone it, and create families for themselves.

Relative Best is the fifth book in the Foothills Pride series by author Pat Henshaw. I have not read the previous books and I was not lost in this story at all.
Zeke plays the banjo and guitar. He plays at Stonewall Thursdays and Friday nights. He also does weddings, and special occasions. He owns the local historical hotel in town. He is a cutie, tad on the shy side. Stumbles over himself a lot. Specially when he is interested in someone. I liked him he is adorably cute.
Vic is a groomsman. Financial wizard and a secret history nerd. He really is happy when Zeke offers the history of the hotel. He is a very intense personality.
This story is told in Zeke's perspective. There are places this story drags some, but that is because there is a ton of story in this book. While I did understand this story without reading the previous books, I would suggest reading this series in order. I think that would help with the tiny nuances that seemed to go over my head. Over all though really great series and connection. I loved getting to know these characters and want to know more about the town and those who live there in the future.
