•••••
Young love is all too fleeting, as Harold Jonquil
painfully discovered years ago when Sarah Sarvol, the
niece of a neighboring landowner, captured his heart.
After an idyllic few weeks in the throes of blossoming
love, reality intervened. They could have no future.
Following their disastrous parting, Harold attempted
to push aside thoughts of love and regret, but Sarah
has never left his heart. Now, years later, he has
achieved his lifelong aspiration of becoming the local
vicar. However, the role proves more difficult than he
imagined. He feels hollow and uninspired—until the
most important person in his past returns, challenging
him as no one ever has.
When Sarah’s ailing uncle summons her back to the
family estate in England, there is only one person from
her past she is reluctant to see again: Harold Jonquil,
the only man who has ever claimed her heart. But when
she comes face-to-face with her former beau, she hardly
recognizes the aloof and dull man before her. She is
determined to help Harold rediscover the passion he
once felt toward his chosen profession. Soon, despite
their exasperation with each other, they cannot deny
the stirring of feelings long buried—but is it too late
for second chances?

Just keeps getting better!

*Sigh* - Could there be any better indicator of a whole encompassing conclusion to a story? Especially one that so deeply explores the character of who has been one of the most elusive of the Jonquil family of brothers. Harold has made his brief appearances over the years, and endured the torment of teasing from his siblings as ‘Holy Harry’, due to his career choice as a Vicar. The readers have never really gotten more than a glimpse. Well, wait no more, his life long friend Sarah Sorvel is back from America - and he can barely keep it together. Each time Sarah Eden takes us back to Collingham - we go a little deeper, the family experiences a little more. This is what I appreciate about this family series. Trials continue amidst all the adorable love stories. The tenderness and love this family shares stands out, along with the usual hilarious dialogue between the brothers.

Harry finds himself

"Holy Harry" finally gets his story told, and what a story it is. Harold Jonquil is a vicar like everyone knew he would be, but he's not THE vicar he imagined he be or wants to be. He doesn't think he can be himself and a vicar at the same time--what would the parishioners think if they knew of his "unvicarly" hobbies of rock climbing and knowing Irish drinking songs? Thank goodness Sarah Sarvol comes back into Harry's life. Being an American she isn't as formal, and upon her first visit to church she tells Harry she had expected more. "More of the vicar you ought to be", and challenges him to see who is better at vicaring. I loved seeing Harry change from the stiff, almost aloof vicar to one his parishioners would know truly cared about them. I was upset with Phillip and Layton's endless teasing of him and was so happy when Mater came back to Lampton Park. It was wonderful to get updates on all of the Jonquil brothers and their families. Sarah M. Eden makes these characters so real to the reader, sometimes we forget they're not real people. We laugh at their silliness and cry for them when they're going through difficulties. This is a wonderful addition to the Jonquil series.

Charming story with wonderful characters

“Act well your part; there all the honor lies.” From the captivating cover to the setting in Regency England and on to the riveting story of “Holy Harry”, The Heart of a Vicar had me turning pages far into the night. I love Sarah M. Eden’s writing, and the Jonquil family has wormed its way into my heart. Each of the seven brothers has his own personality and quirks, and I enjoy the way they interact with each other—the way they joke and tease one another but also rally as a family when needed. Eden is a master at creating realistic, endearing, and colorful characters. She also excels at witty banter and humorous situations. I loved Harold and Sarah’s connection and their rapport with each other. “Did we decide on ‘a horde of Jonquils,’ then?” “I cannot believe I get to be part of it,” Sarah could not hide her amazement. “I cannot believe you want to be.” His grin brought out her laugh. “I did challenge our good vicar to a competition of saintliness.” Beautiful themes of the importance of family, overcoming fear and doubt, and the power of love are woven through the story and add depth and dimension to it. This book can be read as a standalone, but to get the full effect of this fun family you might want to start with the others. They are all fantastic books and so enjoyable. I’ll be anxiously awaiting the next book in the series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy from Covenant Communications/NetGalley. All opinions are my own.

I believe this is the first book of Sarah Eden’s that I have read and even though it is part of a series I found it works fine as a stand alone. I enjoyed getting acquainted with the Jonquil family and I loved Harold the Vicar, also known as Holy Harry. The romance between he and Sarah was very well done and the way she helped guide him to his heart’s calling was great. I recommend this book highly. I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher. All views are my very own.

I’ve been a big fan of Sarah M. Eden’s books since day one. There hasn’t been a book I have not enjoyed, so it was a given that I would love her newest book, The Heart of a Vicar. What I did not expect though was was how much I came to love Harold, a.k.a Holy Harry. I thought him kind of dull when you see glimpses of him in other Jonquil books, but I should’ve known that I would’ve seen more of him in his own book. Let’s just say that I wouldn’t mind a life of poverty with him by my side. This book brought me to the edge of my seat. Not about weather or not the hero and heroine gets together in the end, because we all know that is a given, but I had to see what would happen to some of the other characters in the book, characters that I have gotten to know and love through previous books in the series. Which if you haven’t read any of them, then I encourage you to start at the beginning as they do continue to tie into other books, but it is not essential. You can read this book without reading the previous ones. I highly recommend this book to all romance lovers.

Heart of a vicar is one of Sarah Eden’s best books yet. This is a fabulous addition to the Jonquil family stories and one of its best features are all the great insights into the other brothers’ lives. Holy Harry has such depth and his love story with Sara is a tale of friendship and understanding. I thoroughly enjoyed his story. A must read for sure!
