Quiet English village, Bellingford, is set aflutter by the two new residents from London: Rich and Bless, euphemistically known as the "two gentlemen sharing". Despite full attempts to be friendly and to integrate, some long-time residents see their residency as a sign of moral degeneration that must be stopped. It doesn’t help that right following their arrival a whole host of strange characters also crash into town.

William Corlett’s comic novel delivers plenty of wackiness, while also being quite sweet. Bless and Rich try to navigate a massive change in lifestyles and their new commitment with plenty of natural uncertainty and uneasiness, only to be thrown into surreal situations including the arrival of an Italian Duke, a woman looking for an exorcism, and villagers’ secrets that have just been percolating waiting for the right moment to explode .

I didn’t have high expectations for this book aside from being an entertaining read. But despite some predictable moments, this was a very fun read. While not as a rich in language as P.G. Wodehouse, the plot and insanely eccentric characters certainly make me think this might be something he would have come up with if he was writing for an LGTB-friendly audience in the modern day.
