Author's Summary:Detective John Sheppard starts his new life in suburbia and becomes steadily captivated by his neighbor, Dr. Rodney McKay, and his son Timothy.
This is a story about John, the neighborly detective who cross-dresses for work, and Rodney, the tragic woobie wideower who was married to a botanist (botanist!) and is currently NOT-dating Katie Brown.
John buys an old, rundown house next to Rodney's, gets his friends to help him fix it up, meets Rodney, and then realizes that he doesn't have to fix up the house after all. The mini-McKay in this story is super adorable and learns words such as transvestite and homosexual (but not bisexual) at an early age. It's also nice to see Rodney work hard at being a good father (finally something he's not naturally good at). Highly recommended.
