      I've read very few MM books which deal with religion. I've never read an MM book where one of the MCs is a priest. I avoid such books because the inner "I hate myself because I'm gay but also want to be a good Christian" turmoil which is a common theme for this sub-genre gets old pretty fast. So ordinarily I wouldn't have given 'Don't Kiss the Vicar' a second look. But the short length and the English country setting convinced me to give a try. Simply put, I didn't feel any real connection betwe [...]

      3,5 stars rounded up to 4When I read the synopsis of this book it sounded like Vicar of Dibley meets The Moving Finger, so I giggled when I read:"It wasn't even homophobic, really. More like a crackpot. 'The Moving Finger' sort of thing.""If you mean Agatha Christie, that story ended up in a murder,"Steve, a resident of a sleepy Hampshire village, receives a nasty poison pen:[image error]Things are complicated as Steve is hellbent not to let his crush on the new vicar show and is worried someone [...]

      2 stars.I was completely bored by this tale. I literally wanted to skim the pages, but I decided against it since it was a novella. I didn't feel the connection between Steve and Daniel at. I got the attraction part, but the connection between two people which leaves us warm inside was really missing. Definitely a low-angst read which I appreciated, but I just didn't connect with the story.

      2.75 starsDon't Kiss A Vicar was a British novella set in small English village, a sort of small town cozy mystery on top of the young vicar's infatuation with the village's young solicitor. Some of the vicarage terminologies were lost to me; as well as some British lingo I'm not familiar with. But the story was typical Cochrane's style in the easy and sensible flow, off page bed scenes, and witty gabfest here and there. And THIS, I was familiar with.That saying, I found myself didn't particular [...]

      Steve Dexter has the hots for the vicar of St. Thomas, the gentle and handsome Daniel Miller. But that’s not appropriate, so he hides it under a sort of gruff argumentativeness that makes the Rev. Mr. Miller feel that Mr. Dexter dislikes him. You see, the vicar has the hots for Steve, too. But Dan is so painfully aware of propriety and unsure of his standing in this new parish that he returns Steve’s off-putting behavior move for move. A fortuitous accident brings the two men together, but t [...]

      I like Charlie Cochrane's books because I know she'll always deliver a sweet and hopeful romance, often with a lot of humor. This book made me laugh a few times. I also appreciate the way she throws my American self right into the deep end of British culture. I always end up having a great time wandering around and slang dictionaries when I read her books.The main character, Dan, is a gay vicar who is still getting to know some of his parishioners. Dan is very serious about his relationship wit [...]

      I really enjoyed Don’t Kiss the Vicar. I feel I should point out to potential readers that the novella is set in England and is written by an English author, and with that being said, it is a VERY English novel. So if you are a reader who has problems with British terminology, this probably won’t be the book for you. Fortunately, despite my wholly American upbringing, I adore English authors and their novels (well, at least the contemporary ones) and Don’t Kiss the Vicar was not only an en [...]

      I got an advance copy from Bold Strokes Books on Netgalley.My first impression was that the setting was really interesting - rural, church, characters older than usual. It's a promising premise with interesting characters a bit more diverse than many recent books and I found the things the characters had to say (including in the narration) very captivating. ""Jesus always had a capacity for doing exactly what people didn't expect. "What did Jesus say you should do" was maybe more his scene"Howev [...]

      4-1/2 starsA great story of a quaint little English village that may not be as friendly as it seems on the surface. I know that some people would say that the story could have been a little better had there been more of Dan and Steve's relationship but for me not all stories require every little minute detail. I loved the fact that it isn't religion that comes into play in regards to the couple's conflicts, yes it's the bases of the poison pen letters but not what has been in Dan and Steve's way [...]

      Splendid little story about a suitably diverse bunch of eccentrics in a village parish. I loved the apt chapter headings and it was great to see a story in which the hero's ex was his friend rather than an adversary for the new love interest. The mystery sub-plot got wrapped up a little too swiftly for my tastes, but I'd love to see more of all the cast sometime.

    12. Max says:

      "Cozy gay Anglican romance" is a subgenre I didn't know I needed, but now that I've read Don't Kiss the Vicar I'm dying for more. Short, sweet, and oh so terribly English, this is a charming little read that handles big themes with a very light touch.

    13. Alison says:

      Very pleasant. This is a lovely little story. It's low on drama and high on English small town charm. It's pretty classic Charlie Cochrane, really, and it's quite enjoyable to read.
