OVERVIEW
(from Amazon)
Heartwarming English comedy of manners, featuring the trials and tribulations of newly ordained minister, Neil Fisher
In part two of the Dunbridge Chronicles, Neil Fisher returns from ordination inspired by his sense of ministry, but determined to distance himself from the two ladies in his life. This is not altogether well received, and a wide segment of the congregation of St Stephen’s, Dunbridge—including the music group—points Neil to the error of his ways.
Meanwhile Neil’s close friend Colin and his wife, Jeannie, are delighted by the birth of a daughter, but is all well with the baby? Neil’s mother Iris continues to meddle, to his irritation. Churchwarden Peter has said a relieved farewell to his flighty wife Glenda—or has he? Dunbridge is not as peaceful as it seems.
AUTHOR
Pam Rhodes for many years has presented the world’s number one religious television program, Songs of Praise on BBC. She writes for the UK national newspaper, the Daily Mail, and is also a successful novelist—author of The Dunbridge Chronicles, With Hearts and Hymns and Voices, and four other novels, as well as a number of additional books.
REVIEW
The author wrote a light fiction with the setting being a small church.. It has snippets about the life of the town's  vicar.  I myself am not much into reading these kind of religious based books., but this one was rather interesting.  A little liberal but with an open mind it's not a bad read.  I always thought as I was growing up that Priests didn't marry or have any intimate relationships.  They were in a sense, married to God.  So I learned some things about the priesthood.  The author kept you interested by the many different characters and the situations they got themselves into. The book put personal aspects that touch us all such as, death, anger, love, sadness and so many others, into the book.  We all struggle with one or more things in our lives so this book was true to the point about this aspect.  The author showed some who accepted their situations with grace.  That is not an easy thing to do at times. I feel the book was an easy read without a lot of serious spirituality mixed in.  I feel the book is a good read for the doctor's office or when you're waiting on the kids at soccer practice.  I just have a hard time reading religious based books.  It's just my own opinion.  Grab a copy of CASTING THE NET and develop your own opinion.

I received a complimentary copy of CASTING THE NET by Pam Rhodes from Kregel Publication Blog Tours for my view.  No other compensation took place. 

I would give this book 3 STARS.
