Holden Worthington is known for having had a show on television, a less than acceptable writing sideline and for being a world explorer. Now, however, he has severe agoraphobia and is working on a cookbook based on the places he had traveled to. Adam Morgan is Holden's new laborer/gardener and catches Holden's attention....even if Holden does not think he could (or should) do anything about it.
It is when Adam discovers a body on the property that the two men become acquainted, even as Holden finds his own world is turned topsy-turvy. The town they live in believes that Holden is hiding something and Adam works on shedding light on the situation.....and bringing Holden out of his home as well.
In and Out is a good read for several reasons. Good storyline, good characters, and a good pace. For me, the main characters are sympathetic in that they each have their issues and do the best they can. Each in his own way is an outcast and does the best he can. How they interact with each other and work through their issues - alone and together - is part of why this read works well for me. It is also how the mystery of how the body wound up buried on Worthington property - and why - is another. The pace flows around, with and through these points to a very satisfying conclusion.
