Product Description

A Foothills Pride Story

Barista Jimmy Patterson thinks it's a good idea to get rip-roaring drunk on his birthday after he’s dumped by his boyfriend. When the burly owner of Stonewall’s Bar rescues Jimmy, the night starts to look up.

Now Jimmy just wants to know the bartender's first name since he's worn a different name tag every time Jimmy's seen him. "Guy" Stone gives Jimmy seven guesses, one for each night he takes Jimmy out on a date.

While Jimmy’s trying to come up with his name, he's distracted by the destruction of his coffee shop and what looks more and more like a hate crime.

This was a beautiful book and a first read for this author. When you are given a name like King James Patterson you kinda want to hide. Known as Jimmy he co-owns Penny's Cafe with his friend Felicity. Jimmy celebrates his birthday with his boyfriend, Alex but it doesn't go well. What if your fated boyfriend is right under your nose the whole time. Names are just names but once you get to know the person that's all you need, well other than his real name. Stone is much like Jimmy hiding his real name too. You'll never guess his real name.

This is one pretty damn cool and well written story. Jimmy is a sweetheart and it’s difficult not to instantly feel sorry for this self-confessed twink. To top it all off, he’s attracted to the big bear of a man behind the bar at the only gay bar in town. The mystery is no one knows his name. They just know him as whichever name tag he was wearing when last seen or taken notice of. This makes Jimmy determined to work it out.

It’s certainly different having the entire plot predicated on a character trying to guess something about the other main character. In fact, I really enjoyed how the chapters were set up and it was really well paced too. Every couple chapters, when it gets to the end of the night after Jimmy and “Guy” have been out, it’s a short period of calm as we see what Jimmy has come up with. Then between all these guesses, Jimmy chronicles the drama that is unfolding around him, drama that “Guy” is more than willing to get involved in as long as Jimmy is kept safe. “Guy” is a teddy bear in every way possible and I found him instantly likable. His refusal to give his real name is more mischievous than annoying.

I really enjoyed the pacing and the cast of characters in this book. This is the type of book you can sit back and just read without thinking too much. Really, this is just a bit of funny with some mystery thrown in but not too much danger.

4.0 out of 5 stars The sweet start to a series set in the Sierra foothills. 1 March 2017
By Ulysses Dietz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Jimmy Patterson Is having the worst night of his life. Dumped by his boyfriend on his birthday, Jimmy decides to drown his sorrows at the Stonewall, the lone gay bar in his small foothills town. The only one who will listen to him seems to be the big bartender, who Jimmy has known ever since he and his best friend Felicity opened their coffee shop in the mall outside town. Thing is, Jimmy doesn’t know his name, because he wears a different name tag every night.

The first of a five-part series inspired by the relocation of Bay Area gay folks to the Sierra foothills after the economic downturn in 2008, “What’s in a Name” is a sweet-hearted look at romance and the importance of community. From the big lug of a bartender who saves Jimmy from himself—and gets him to try to guess his real name over the course of a week—to the various community characters Jimmy meets during that same week; Pat Henshaw’s novella is full of charm and a warm sense of place.

Confronted with prejudice and vandalism for the first time since leaving San Francisco, Jimmy looks increasingly to the Big Guy, as he calls his burly savior. Sure, it’s great to be independent, but it’s just as important to have good people at your back.

I’ve already bought book 2 in the series, for next time I need some sweetness to lighten my day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute and sweet 30 January 2015
By LobsterPhone - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this thinking it was going to be a quick 'hook up' kind of thing but it was actually a really sweet story about a developing relationship. Once I realised where it was going I wished the hints about 'Guy' were elaborated on, but both characters are really cute and I enjoyed them a lot.
