5.0 out of 5 stars More tales from Ireland 31 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is another superb story from Patrick Taylor which Is refreshingly simple and innocent in its storyline but packed with excellent characterisation and some splendid language.
Well up to the usual standard and I hope there are many more to come

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite series, this book included 23 Oct 2012
By Holly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is the seventh book in the Irish Country series:

1) An Irish Country Doctor
2) An Irish Country Village (Irish Country Books)
3) An Irish Country Christmas
4) An Irish Country Girl: A Novel (Irish Country Books)
5) An Irish Country Courtship: A Novel (Irish Country Books)
6) A Dublin Student Doctor: An Irish Country Novel (Irish Country Books)
7) An Irish Country Wedding (Irish Country Books)

I was first introduced to the series in November of 2008 when I picked up "Irish Country Christmas" and the love affair began. It was a book I enjoyed from beginning to end so I went back and read the first two novels and then impatiently waited every year for the next one to be published.

The latest book revolves around Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly as he is preparing to marry for the second time as well as around Dr. Barry Laverty as he prepares to leave Ballybucklebo to further his medical training. These are the two country doctors that have provided the backbone of these stories over the years. The story is set back in the quaint rural Irish village of Ballybucklebo so our wonderful cast of characters including Julie and Donal, Kinky Kincaid, and Lord John MacNeill are all there (to name just a few).

I feel like I am repeating myself each time I write a review for these books, but I must say again that from the first novel through this latest one, they have all been an absolute joy to read. I you have never read any of these, it would be possible to pick this one up and begin here but to have the full experience and get the most out of them, I would recommend going back and start from the beginning. These are not action-packed, adventure books but keep me glued to the page from beginning to end due to the incredible writing, the settings that are perfectly described, and stories that keep me fascinated.

On a side note, I mentioned I was reading this book to a friend of mine who is also a reader but pretty much only reads books in the mystery genre. Imagine my surprise when she immediately responded with how much she loves these books and was so happy to find out another one had been published. For someone who largely limits herself to mysteries with only occasional forays into other genres, that was high praise indeed.

Bottom line: These are some of the most enjoyable books I have ever read and each one (including this one) is an absolute gem. I savor it, try to draw my reading out over time, and it is always with sadness that I close the book after the final page. I am glad he doesn't write them any faster since it takes time to write this well, but I still long for the next fall when I get to go back and rejoin the characters of Ballybucklebo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Continuation of Irish Country Books! 18 Oct 2012
By Obsidian Blue - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
In Patrick's Taylor's latest update to the Irish Country Books we now have "An Irish Country Wedding". This novel takes place a few days after the events in A Dublin Student Doctor: An Irish Country Novel.

We now have Dr. Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly preparing for his upcoming wedding to Nurse Kitty O'Hallorhan.

For those who read the previous novels you know that Dr. Barry Laverty will soon be leaving Dr. O'Reilly to train as an obstetrician. Dr. Laverty who is still nursing his broken heart over his last girlfriend starts to court Ballybucklebo teacher Sue Nolan.

We once again have both of the Doctors interacting with the villagers of Ballybuckelbo and helping them out when they can and doing their best to keep Councillor Bertie Bishop from doing his best to cause upheaval in the village.

It was great to read about Ireland in this time and place and to hear about the divides between the Catholics and Protestants. I honestly don't know that much about Irish history in the 1960s and it was nice to see exactly in that time and place how the divide affected the country.

Additionally, I loved how even in the 1960s Ireland was still a caste system with servants only using formal names for their bosses or those who were in a lower place in society.

Finally, what I really did love was the information we received on women doctor's in Ireland and due to a surprise in this novel we may get to hear more about what it is to be a woman doctor in Ireland practicing in the 1960s. In this time and place in the world it seems so strange that a woman cannot be a doctor, or a scientist, or the head of a fortune 500 company. To read about how tough things were for women back in general in those days and how hard it was to even get an education was eye-opening.

This was a great novel and I can't wait to revisit again with the village of Ballybucklebo and Doctors O'Reilly and Laverty!

4.0 out of 5 stars It's another good one 19 Oct 2012

Once  I got started on this series I can't stop. I truly like his style of writing and getting to know all the people of   Ballybucklebo.  They are a nice but eccentric bunch

These novels are refreshing and uplifting.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book, A Great Series 19 Jan 2013
By Stuart S Meighan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Patrick Taylor's "Irish Country" sreies, including this, his most recent, hark back to a simpler time. The character development throughout the series is consistantly excellent. There are a lot of plot twists and turns.

Its all a bit pollyanna, with good outsmarting evil at every corner. Sometimes I want that comfort, especially when life is challenging and complex. Taylor weaves a world that forms a gentle retreat at such times.

I suggest that you begin the series at the begining and read the books in sequence. I think "An Irish Country Doctor" is book 1.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not up to previous books in the series 8 Nov 2012
By Kaynote - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
These stories of two Irish doctors and their experiences in a small (shmall?) Irish town have been so entertaining that I looked forward to reading the most recent (final?) book in the series.
Sadly, it didn't live up to the promise. Sure, it did tie together loose ends, sent the doctors off on their expected ways, even returned the cook/receptionist/overweight "Kinky" Kincaid to the office at 1 Main Street, Ballybucklebo, as an interesting character with a looming love affair.
If author Patrick Taylor decides to write more - in this series or elsewhere - I would recommend his work for anyone who wants to get an authentic taste of the Ulster country that he writes so well about.
