This sequel to Fisher of Men is a charming and engagingly warmhearted read. Dunbridge, the small market town setting, is a perfect backdrop to display gentle rural life in all its glory (with just the occasional bit of scandal and scheming). Although Neil the Curate and the Church are central, the true story on display is life as it really is; full of love, comedic moments, heartbreak hell, tussles of faith and comforts of friendship.  Make yourself cozy, relax into this warm, amusing story and enjoy. ~ Liz Robinson

Casting the Net Synopsis

Neil returns from his ordination inspired by his vocation, and determined not to let his love life get in the way. Some might think a man lucky to have two women declaring their love for him, but it's not that straightforward when you're a priest! Neil's second year as curate of St Stephen's, in the small town of Dunbridge, promises to be no quieter than the first. There are joys to be celebrated, worries to be shared, and bereavements that shake the community to its core. And of course, there are the women who mean to take care of him - from his domineering mother, Iris, who appears to have moved in, and Wendy, who knows she'd make him the perfect wife, to Claire, who doesn't believe in God, but does believe in Neil...
