Book Blurb

The Country gives you more than fresh air, even at Christmas.

The romantic and comedic adventures of Wilson and his dishy doctor boyfriend, Edmund, continue. This time, Christmas is fast approaching so not only does the seasonal calendar need to be organized and presents bought, but with the help of the vicar and all the Parish Council, the main Christmas event has to be planned—the unveiling of the new town statue.

Oh my.

Sure, the town may have got over the fact Wilson and the doctor are a couple, but if everything goes right—and it never will—they may not forget this Christmas. Let’s just say, everything possible will be done to stop this Christmas from making the Sydney Gay Mardi Gras look like Mother Teresa’s picnic for good girls. Even so, Christmas this year will certainly be different in Passmore. Can Wilson and Edmund survive the festive season? Can the town? And what surprise does Edmund have in store for Wilson that will turn his world upside down?


Sequel to The Vicar of Passmore.


Book Review

As funny as the first book, and as filled with craziness, 'Christmas in Passmore' offers up another episode in the life of verger Wilson and his now steady boyfriend Edmund. We get to see the mayor with a baby fetish, the nudist and his BDSM-interested neighbor, the crazy farmer, and the mayor's son in all their freakish glory. A town statue has to be voted on, the annual Christmas pageant has to be organized, and a Christmas sermon needs preparing.

Between emergency parish council meetings and Edmund's demanding job, Wilson and Edmund are having a hard time finding enough time to be together. They make up for it with a few solo sessions, but it isn’t the same. I loves how the suspense about 'will they manage or won't they' ran like a separate thread through the entire story. Needless to say, the end result was worthy of all the worrying, and delivered in typical Mark Alders style: a mix of humor and total hotness.

If you like romantic comedies with a good dollop of soap opera thrown in, if you enjoy a love story where the lovers barely manage to see each other and their yearning for the other person takes on almost unbearable proportions, and if you want to know how the crazy little town of Passmore Is doing, don’t miss this book.
