I wonder if there is a place like this Town anywhere in Australia, I would move there right away.
Nothing boring about this little Town for sure. Some parts were so funny.
Great book.

I always love to read Mark's books. This one was a bit different (aren't they all). This had a lot of humor in it and *gasp* much less sex! Still Mark managed to get his naked men hanging out all over the story;) Wilson is the new verger of Passmore but barely gets into town and is faced with being voted of his job by the town! What to do? The vicar is ready to fight to keep him around and destroy one more prejudice in the town. Of course there is the "hunky" doctor who give Wilson even more rea ...more

This book is filled with humor, lots of quirky characters, and a message about tolerance that is all the more effective for its simplicity. Imagine a town full of people who would be considered somewhere between slightly odd and very strange by most average humans. They range from a nudist who likes to do his gardening, uhm, in the nude, to a woman who believes she's the world's best cook but produces inedible meals, to the mayor with a somewhat embarrassing fetish. And amongst all this crazines ...more

Its no secret that I love Mark Alder books. I love them for their outrageous humour and quirky plot. This book delivers on both :)

Mark himself has told us that this was one was a sweeter romance then normal. I enjoyed this change of pace and because it was a sweet romance there was a larger cast of characters. I loved reading about the failed masterchef cook, the farmer with animal fetish's and many more.

I did have one issue however. It was the speed with which they feel in love. If only Mark ha

When Wilson Rooney arrived to be the new Verger of the town of Passmore, he had no idea what was in store for him. As soon as he stepped off the bus, he is warmly welcomed by the Vicar, but he soon learns that there are townspeople who do not want him around because he is open about his homosexuality. When he meets the town doctor, Edmund Van Der Muer, they are both immediately drawn to one another and start dating. This scandalizes some townspeople even m

A cute, one-sitting novella with some awesomely whacked characters. I think I enjoyed the setting and characters a bit more than the actual romance, which was very quick to develop. But there are some hilarious moments in this book. I was a bit confused about the setting throughout until I read the author's bio and realized it was set in Australia.
Mark can always make me laugh! Passmore is a charming little town populated with interesting and eccentric folk. Makes me wonder what could have been found behind the closed doors of the small town I grew up in! LOL!

This was a fun, obscure, entertaining book; the characters were pretty hilarious. But I would have liked the story to be a bit more fleshed out - everything happened very quickly in the romance dept - perhaps a bit too quickly. But I'll definitely check out another of Mark Alder's books.

I live in Melbourne, Victoria, in the land of Oz. According to my own Teenage mis-adventures, I am just an ordinary guy with a penis which likes to get me into trouble…a lot. I’ve seduced trees, copulated with watermelons, and had nice old ladies pick ants off my naked body. Yep, that’s me. Mark Alders. All round nice guy and with my brain firmly in my pants, exactly where it belongs!

So what about
