I like Lanyon's stories. They're refreshing, mostly plot-driven and the characters, with few exceptions, aren't defined by their being gay. And the short story collections are like buying a bag of your favourite snack food: you know exactly what you'll be getting and that it'll make you feel good.
You can have too much of a good thing, though, and In Sunshine or in Shadow falls into that category. After the third or fourth story, the character templates become a bit repetitive. After the sixth or seventh, you realise that when the blurb told you that this collection "encapsulates everything readers of Male/Male romance have come to love most about Josh Lanyon's work," it meant that everything is more or less the same every time. Look, I know that it's cliché because it works, right? But not necessarily over and over and over again in the span of some fifteen hours.
So while the readers were good and all the stories were decently written, I got bored after a while. I guess this is one of those audiobooks that are better enjoyed in bits and pieces.
