Welcome to Patrick Taylor's Irish Country Books and the colourful Ulster village of Ballybucklebo, where two doctors work hand in hand to mend the bodies and spirits of the town's diverse and engaging inhabitants. But who is looking after the wounded hearts of the doctors?

In An Irish Country Courtship, after less than a year, young Barry Laverty, M.B., is settling in to the village, with only a few months to go before he becomes a full partner in the practice. He's looking forward to becoming a fixture in the community, until an unexpected romantic reversal gives him second thoughts. Will he truly be happy tending to routine coughs and colds for the rest of his career? After all, even when a more challenging case comes along, like a rare tropical disease, all he can do is pass it on to a qualified specialist or big-city hospital. As much as Barry enjoys the rough and tumble of life in County Down, is running a humble GP's shop all he wants out of life?

Barry's mentor, Doctor Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly, is going through some personal upheavals as well. After mourning his deceased wife for decades, he's finally allowed a new woman into his life. But this budding courtship is not going over well with Kinky Kincaid, the doctors' redoubtable housekeeper, who fears having her position usurped by O'Reilly's new flame. Tact, diplomacy, and a fair amount of blarney may be required to restore peace to the household.

Meanwhile, life goes on in Ballybucklebo, presenting both doctors with plenty of distractions from their own troubles. From a mysterious outbreak at the local school to a complicated swindle involving an unlucky racehorse, the two partners will need all of their combined wit and compassion to put things right again--just in time for their lives to change forever.

At one point, I absolutely loved this series, set in 1960s Northern Ireland and involving a senior general practitioner doctor in Ballybucklebo and his newer, younger, GP doctor, and their housekeeper, Kinky. However, I did not like the fourth book in the series at all, so it was quite some time til I read the fifth book, this one.

This one has everything I loved about this series. Great, somewhat heartwarming at times, stories about the doctors and the townspeople, in sickness and it health.

The focus in this book is the love life of the older doctor, roughly 25 years after his wife was killed in World War 2, as well as the love life of the younger doctor, whose girlfriend just dumped him.

Another focus is whether the younger doctor will want to settle down, as a small town GP, or whether he'd prefer to be a specialist.

Horseracing also figures prominently, as the local politician is trying to hoodwink a group of his employees out of their ownership of a racehorse.

All in all, a charming, heartwarming, pleasant story!!

In this series, I first read "An Irish Country Christmas". I thoroughly enjoyed it. Its simplicity was charming, and a tonic to my current crazed and hectic pace of life. I immediately bought others in the series.

This book was the next one to be read. I enjoyed it, but I did not find it as endearing as the first one read. It may be that it was just bad timing. I find that a great book is a combination of the story itself and the timing of when read in life. The two must be in-sync to be a great read.

This book carried over the joy in telling the story of a small town in Ireland during 1965. It continued to follow 2 doctors as they faced personal and professional challenges. Unfortunately, the dashed romance of the younger doctor seemed heavy-handed. I found it difficult to empathize with the young man as he wallowed in doubt and self-assessment. But, that part of the story aside, I did enjoy the book. I will probably read others in the series, especially as they are already at the top of my closet! However, I will move to more "serious" reads first...which are also waiting for selection in my closet!

I love this series. I have read all of them and am looking forward to the latest one. This is a series you will either love or be uninterested in. You become involved with the characters lives and problems as they carry over from book to book. It is a great series. I was sad when I finished the lot. I can't wait for the latest to come out. Would give it 10 stars if I could.

It's time to visit Ballybucklebo again and peek into the lives of Barry Laverty and his mentor, Dr. Fingal O'Reilly. After looking back in time to learn more about Kinky Kincaid's childhood in An Irish Country Girl, the author picks up where we left the two doctors in An Irish Country Christmas. Each is learning to appreciate the other and even, possibly, anticipating a permanent partnership. Before that can occur, however, Barry suffers a serious heartbreak and begins to question if the life of a GP is enough to satisfy him. He enjoys obstetrics so much; would he be happier as a specialist? Or would he miss the small town life and the benefit of its comaraderie and warmth too much? Meanwhile, Fingal is immersed in matters of his own heart. Growing fonder by the day of his school-time love, Kitty O'Hallorhan, he works to find the strength to lay down his memories of his dead wife and to acknowledge his love for Kitty. Thankfully, the two doctors are kept busy by a variety of interesting events in the village that keep them from growing morose or despondent. They take on the roles of sleuths as they search for the source of a confusing outbreak of ringworm and as public defenders when they take up arms against a councilman who is taking unfair advantage of his workers. Life in Ballybucklebo, we are reminded, is never dull and, as Barry's heart begins to heal and open up again to the possibility of love, he just might find it enough to satisfy his longing.

I enjoy these books so much. The author has a wonderful way with words and, though the books are sentimental, they are never so in a cloying or "sappy" way. His characters are so full-bodied and real that it's easy to believe that there really is a Ballybucklebo and the author has just written about the people he's met there. Too, the books are enriched by his layman's explanations of medical facts as well as Irish history and culture, all of which are given in a way that flows well with the story. He teaches his subject well, creating books that satisfy the intellect as well as the heart and he writes so captivatingly that one can't help but feel sad when the last page is turned. I am certainly looking forward to the next book in the series, which promises a glimpse into the life of young Dr. O'Reilly! FIVE STARS!

This is a lovely series. All the people in the village of Balleybucklebo are fun to get to know, and so what if there isn't a terribly compelling story? Although I usually dislike books that are written in the vernacular, pretty soon I was hearing the Irish lilt in my head. Also enjoy the information Taylor supplies at the end of the books -- recipes, definitions, a little history of family practice medicine in the mid-1960s. The first time I read the definitions, I was surprised at how many of the Irish words and expressions have become common American English as well. These books are cozies in the nicest sense of the word.

I'm working my way through this entire series and thoroughly enjoy them. Having lived in the UK for a year, I can really picture the types of villages and scenery and homes written about in the books. Excellent story line about the different characters that follow through the series.

I really enjoy the descriptions of the characters, their speech and mannerisms, and especially their Irish colloquialisms. Patrick Taylor also describes the scenes in such a way that I can almost see them inn my mind. The practice of medicine in the decades that are described in these books is also very interesting to me. I'm reading all the books in the series that I can find!
