    1. I picked up this book because I’ve enjoyed Kate Cotoner’s stories before and the setting of a British village caught my eye. I was also intrigued in that one of the characters is an Anglican priest and I wanted to see how that would work within the context of an m/m romance. In the end, that aspect was the weakest part of the story, leading to a great deal of frustration on my part.Ethan is a tourist who is visiting England looking at architectural sites. He arrives in the Yorkshire village [...]

    2. This is more a mystery than a romance - yes, there's the romance plot, but it's clearly a sub-plot, and the romance advances without many problems. The main plot is really the mystery of the "hand of glory", a grisly medieval artifact that is one of the clues to resolving a very old mystery. I enjoyed the book Like any other of Kate's stories, I found it unputdownable so I read it in two sittings and that was good fun. However, with the m/m plot so mild (there isn't a lot of sex in there), I thi [...]

    3. I really enjoyed this mystery/romance. It starts out with a bang when Ethan gets so excited to see some brasses in the church that he causes total havoc and trashes the place. However the priest he’s expecting is not a 70 year old, but young and hot and he’s pretty sure gay. They start out a friendship, both admit fairly quickly they are attracted but Matt has issues. He had a bad break-up and had to leave his last parish due to a stalker. However with some helpful prodding from the local pu [...]

    4. This is a mystery story with m/m romance. The mystery is the main focus, but the romance comes a close second. There are no explicit sex scenes and that fits well with the overall tone and the characters. I enjoyed the small Yorkshire village and the 500 year old mystery very much. My only complaint is that it could have been longer.It kept me interested and entertained. I finished reading with a smile on my face.

    5. I finished this book in one reading but only because it was so short - under 100 pages, in fact. I liked the story and I really liked the setting but I felt that I would have loved some more detail, both in the mystery and in the romance.The book is primarily a mystery with the added bonus of a little m/m romance. Recommended to anyone who wants a quick but enjoyable read on a lazy afternoon.

    6. This could have been a much better book than it turned out for me. Too short, not enough character development, falling in love within days,"really, how many times do we have to go through this??" The ending felt very rushed for me. This was disappointing because I really love this writer and most of her works.

    7. 3.5 stars. There was almost too much story crammed into this quite short novella, but it was an enjoyable English village cozy mystery, with a wholesome, old-fashioned romance thrown in for good measure.
