Inhaltsangabe

Holden Worthington's globetrotting days are over. Once the host of a popular adventure show, he hasn't ventured past his own front door in more than a year. Then the arrival of a sexy new gardener sparks something Holden hasn't felt in a very long time - an interest in the world outside his window.

Holden tries to resist the attraction. But painfully shy yet definitely interested Adam Morgan has Holden longing to conquer his debilitating anxiety and live again. After a grisly discovery on the grounds of the estate, the town of Smithfield turns a suspicious eye on the reclusive Holden - and the two men must trust in each other to bring the truth out in the open.

Review on ´Men of Smithfield - Adam and Holden´

Once Holden had been a globetrotting TV personality but much drama in his personal life has made him an agoraphobic recluse now being scared of all the fresh air and wide space behind the front door of his big mansion. Spring time brings in shy and socially awkward gardener Adam, who discovers an unknown dead man in Holden´s neglected garden. Of course that feeds the suspicions of the gossiping Smithfielders and makes Holden´s quiet life exciting, as do this feelings for Adam he has.

Although L B Gregg has written another entertaining story with witty dialoges and even a murder case, this one is my least favourite of all the „Men of Smithfield“ episodes.The main reason is Holden, who is more like a whining, self-centered, randy old devil trying to seduce his virgin employee while the homicid investigations in his backyard are ongoing. I tried really had but could not warm up to him. The mystery had too many side characters being somehow involeved or not and the missing emotinal connection between lusting Holden and sweet,young Adam, this time it did not work for me.

Despite all those flaws I am always spending an enjoyable time and feeling like one of those gossiping townspeople following the scandals at the Worthington Mansion thanks to Shannon Gunn and his great voice talent. He not only portrays Holden and his dirty inner monologes perfectly, the misgiving housekeeper, the holier-than-thou neighbor, the preppy banker, the drunken brother, the overeager sister-in-law, they all get a matching voice from him. It is so much fun listening to his fluid and vivid narration of this story!
