Neil Fisher's first trip to Dunbridge was not a success. Having inadvertently locked himself in St Stephen's Church for hours (and succumbing to the communion wine and wafers for dinner) it seemed miraculous they gave him the curate's job! On arrival in the small town of Dunbridge it quickly becomes clear that life is not going to be tranquil for the eligible new bachelor, as four formidable women are determined to make their presence felt. There is his mother, Iris, still questioning his choice of career; his rector, the no-nonsense Margaret, who is not one for taking prisoners; Claire, his new neighbour, whom he's already managed to offend. And then there is Wendy, the beautiful leading light of the church music group, who has her own plans for Neil. It can only end in trouble.

Review 1 for Fisher of Men, Dunbridge Chronicles Series #1
This is a novel in the style of the Mitford series. Neil Fisher arrives in the small village of Dunbridge and promptly manages to lock himself in St. Stephen's Church. He sustains himself with the communion wine and wafers as he is not discovered for hours. Nonetheless, they still hire him for the curate's job. He has a year of experience to gain before his ordination.
Neil settles into his job, meeting all of the quirky people in the village. He is an eligible bachelor and several women have their eyes on him. He meets crabby people and loving people. He meets his neighbor Claire, an avowed atheist. And he endures the phone calls from his mother who laments his not going into a prestigious and high paying job.
This is a delightful novel. Neil is a gentle man who comes to love those he is serving. And while Wendy, the choir director, has her sights on Neil, I'm really rooting for Claire. Now, if she would just come to the point of admitting that there is a God...

Review 2 for Fisher of Men, Dunbridge Chronicles Series #1
New curate is bachelor in England
Date:January 19, 2014
Neil Fisher arrives in a small town of Dunbridge as the new curate of St. Stephen's and quickly finds himself the talk of the town, especially since he is an eligible bachelor.
Rooting for some and frowning at others I found I wanted to know more about the members of St. Stephen's and other Dunbridge residents. Dilemmas present happy endings for some but not for all.
Anxious for the next book in the series as the end of "Fisher of Men" left a very important question unanswered.
