When recent horticulture graduate Dr. Fenton Miller arrives in Stone Acres, California, he thinks his only concern is which job offer to accept after spending the holidays working at his cousin’s plant nursery. But after he rents a room from another shorter-than-average man, sous-chef John Barton, Fen falls in lust.

While he’s attracted to Fen, John’s got bigger concerns when two men from his past arrive in town and pressure him to return to San Francisco. Although John tries to stop Fen from getting involved, Fen realizes his lover is in trouble and is determined to protect him.

As the holidays get closer and Fen makes his own enemy, the joy of the season gets lost in the ill will around them. To ensure love triumphs, Fen and John must stand tall to show that short, dark, and handsome is a recipe for love.

Short Order is the 8th book in the Foothills Pride series by author Pat Henshaw. This series just keeps getting better and better. It does not have to be read first to understand this story. But I would just because it is that good.
Fen is a doctor of horticulture.  He is going to cure the world through plants. He is easy going happy kinda guy. Nothing much phases him.  
John he is brisk, all business.  He is sous chef and has a room for rent.
These two seem like the most unlikely of couples. But they are what the other needs. I like that. This is a very short story, but I really loved the characters. They are well developed and have a lot of heart and soul.
I think this one is a great addition to the series and I cannot wait to see who falls in love next.

Thank you for the wonderful review! I hate to tell you, but Short Order is the end of the series. I'm working on full-length novels now.
