In this installment, Neil- the curate- has just announced his engagement to Claire (who is a professed atheist but has slowly become closer to Neil's faith.) At their engagement party, Claire's first love and father of her child walks in after six years of living far away in Australia. Neil and Claire handle this challenge to their relationship even as Neil deals with a jealous former girlfriend, and all of the challenges of being curate of a village church.
I love the setting of the quaint, country village. The characters are charming, and the author did a good job helping me get to know them as I read. The events of the story are sometimes touching and sometimes humorous. And, buried beneath, there's quite a lot to be learned about relationships and human behavior.
As with the first book (which was actually the 2nd in the series), there were quite a few doctrinal issues that I had. However, I was able to enjoy it as a fun and sweet read.
I give this one five stars and a PG for content. You can find it on the Kregel website here. Or you can find it on Amazon here.
