Because of an opportunity he'd be a fool to turn down, Lyle Powers transfers to his company's warehouse in central Kansas. The last thing he expects is to meet another gay man in the small town, let alone one who captures his interest.
Roger Kypers is a recovering alcoholic with a 12-year-old daughter he only gets to see for part of the summer. Neither Lyle nor Roger is looking for a relationship, and they fumble at the start, yet emotions build as Roger shows Lyle the landmarks of Oz.
But when Roger's wicked witch of an ex-wife threatens to take his daughter away for good if he doesn't act "normally", he's faced with the challenge of letting her get away with it, or fighting to accept himself and standing up for what he knows is right.

Any additional comments?
Dumped in Oz is a sweet coming out story. Roger is a baker in a family restaurant in a small town in Kansas. He was married, has had a nasty divorce and has a teenage daughter. He stays in the closet so he won't lose his rights to see her.
Lyle transfers to the Kansas office for a year. It is too good of an opportunity to turn down, yet he misses the big city life. He and Roger become friends right away.
Andrew Grey always develops intriguing characters and has charming, interesting settings. Who else could take such a tiny Kansas town and turn it into OZ?
if you are looking for a story to kill a few hours, like small towns, interesting characters, and a Happy ending this is for you!
