Summary

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.

wonderful comedy of errors and murder mystery

I don’t think I can do this wonderful comedy of errors murder mystery justice. So much happens in in amongst it all Holden finds himself falling from lust into love with Adam.
Shannon Gunn’s narration is wonderful. His characterisation of Holden reminds me of Uncle Arthur from the original Bewitched (that shows my age!) but from that voice I had such a great picture of Holden. Adam was pretty great as well. If in doubt listen to the sample because it’s a character you’ll either love or hate. Me I love it.

Sweet story but narration somewhat annoying

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The interpretation of Holden as Paul Lynde. I can understand why the narrator went this way, because the book really has great snarky dialogue. But as much as I like Paul Lynde, it is NOT sexy to hear the romance part of the book with his voice. It is really annoying after a while.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

It wasn't really that interesting. The story and romance is really pretty lame. The best thing about the book is the comedy, it is really funny. I would suggest listening to it as a funny read with a little romance.

What three words best describe Shannon Gunn’s voice?

Diversified. He did a great job with the different charaters, but I just didn't like Holden's.

Do you think Men of Smithfield: Adam and Holden needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, just let them be happy.

Good Story, Horrible narration

What did you like best about Men of Smithfield: Adam and Holden? What did you like least?

I like L.B. Gregg. I think her stories are funny and clever and sweet, but also have some good steamy scenes. The worst part about this BY FAR was the narrator. I've hard him narrate Gregg's other stories, so it's not that he can't narrate, but the choice that he made for Holden had me cringing the entire time! As others have said, it was very Paul Lynde-esque. Which is horribly unsexy. And Holden is fit and strong and hot!!!! It absolutely took away from an otherwise entertaining story.

What didn’t you like about Shannon Gunn’s performance?

As I said above, his choice of voice for Holden was the absolute worst choice I've ever heard from a narrator. If I didn't like Gregg so much, I wouldn't have made it through the book. Absolutely awful. It needs to be redone.
