    3 Stars I had a hard time deciding how to rate this book. I was so looking forward to this book - I loved Courting the Countess and the introduction to Bridget Claremont, the Vicar and the Countess Harry's best friend. I've enjoyed all of Frame's books -going back to her online fict...

    Usually can't stand anything with a strong Christian theme but I loved Frame's previous novels so I gave this one a try and was positively surprised. The whole religion thing was done really well. I did have some other problems however. I'm generally not a huge fan of age gaps in relat...

    DNF @ 38% I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Charming the Vicar just really wasn?t for me. I had two sort of ? bugbears, I guess? ? with it that I just couldn?t push through. That being said, contemporary romance isn?t my usual genre (...

    I did not realize there was an Axedale #1. In my opinion, it did not matter. I had difficulty connecting with this read. I enjoyed the two main characters that wanted to make a different in the world around them in their own unique way Reverend Bridget Claremont, from a prominent famil...

    I actually read this one in ebook form, and then listened to it in audiobook form. I have to be honest and say I love Frame?s books. Before reading this one I also re-listened to Courting the Countess, which is book one in this series. I don?t think you have to read book one, but I...

    I did enjoy this. It is a really lovely story and the characters were engaging and they had depth. I don't read many f/f romances but what attracted me to this one is that the main character - Bridget - is a Church of England priest and a vicar in a small country parish. I really w...

    Jenny Frame really pushed herself with Charming The Vicar and it totally paid off in both the romance and the character work. I also appreciate that even though she regularly writes butch/femme characters, no two pairings are the same. Listening to Bridget top the hunky butch Finn, bot...

    Previously reviewed on The Good, The Bad, and The Unread: I have a bit of a thing for LGBT stories featuring spiritual leaders; I?m not drawn specifically to those involving Church of England clergy, but that does seem to be the faith in which the majority of those protagonists se...

    So I really hope there is a book 3 coming! Quade needs her story told. This was a suggestive and tantalizing book. The seduction took its time and was worth the wait. Love the Vicar and Finn together they have great chemistry. ...

    2.5 stars rounded to 3 Boring. A lesbian vicar and a lesbian magician, while appealing as main characters, do not make this story interesting. Unusual, yes. But boring. ...

    ARC rec'd from NetGalley/Bold Strokes Books for an honest review. I read through the night unable to put this book down. A story with Bridget(sexy Vicar) and Finn (Magician) which is definitely not run-of-the-mill. An unexpected romance with sex and religion that may not appeal to a...

    Do not let the cover of this book deceive you. This is no quaint little story. Yes the village life and villagers are wonderful but the story explodes with grief, anger, religion and yes...a lot of S and M. The story tantalized you with a forbidden romance, and many likeable characters...

    I have mixed feelings about Jenny Frame's books. I've listened to two of them as an audiobook and the each of the narrators greatly influenced my enjoyment (or the lack of it). I picked up Charming the Vicar as I liked Courting the Countess and Bridge's character in it, but she was a...

    First of I didn't realise this was a continuing series. So I can not really advise if by reading book one would enhance your enjoyment of this book. I found I quite liked this book and I never read one. There are a couple of times a reference to book one but not often enough to feel yo...

    Jenny Frame really knows how to write the perfect butch. In ?Charming the Vicar? she has written 3 very different butches- all of them completely adorable. Finnian Kane is an illusionist grieving over the death of her sister and has moved to Axedale to keep out of the public eye. S...

    This book just couldn?t hold my interested.... I?m not sure if it was because of the characters or the setting or the writing or a mix of all of it but it just wasn?t for me. I can?t really pinpoint why it didn?t appeal to me but it just didn?t. ...

    ?Charming the Vicar (Axedale #2)? is the sequel to ?Courting the Countess?, and is a far better book. The characters are much (much!) more complex and well-developed, the story is interesting, the angst actually makes sense, and the current-day battle for LGBT acceptance by the...

    This is the second book in the Axedale series. I enjoyed book 1 Courting the Countess, so I was looking forward to this. Unfortunately, this book didn?t really appeal to me personally. The writing was decent, but it was more that it wasn?t to my personal tastes. While this is a Boo...

    Charming The Vicar is the second novel in Jenny Frame?s Axedale series and it?s one helluva book. I suggested to all readers to start with the first book in the series Courting the Countess, its also a fantastic novel. I?ve been looking at this blank word document for 10 minut...
