This book was a little slow starting for me. I don't know if it's because I was looking forward to it so much but I found it difficult to become engrossed in it. After around a third of the story I found that I was captivated once more by Larkford and it's inhabitants though. There are several new additions which really add to the plot, not least of which Alice (the new GP) and her assistance dog Coco and the mother of Holly's fellow GP, Julia, who makes that character much more human than the spotless ice queen found in the first book.
I'd really recommend reading the first book, and the free novella 'Swept Away' prior to reading Practice Makes Perfect, if you can. It really explains why many of the characters act in the way they do in this book and will give the enjoyment of this one greater depth.
In the end I really loved this return to Larkford, despite my slow start with it. I've already pre-ordered the third in the series due next year.
Holly has Twins, Ben and Tom from her marriage to Milo, which unfortunately failed. She's fallen in love with Taffy and between them they look after the twins, and have a 'dog share' called Eric, with Holly's best friend Lizzie (Dan's Cousin). Dan lives with Julia. Then there is Elsie, an octegenerian film star who became Holly's mentor and friend in the first book.
Lots of happenings in this book kept me glued to the pages, I just could not put it down.
There's the offer by the local PCT coming on the back of their success at running a GP Surgery with no hierarchy; the constant filming of Julia by Quentin following the everyday goings on in the practice; why has Elsie come home from her cruise early?; trouble with the twins at pre-school abd meeting Taffy's family.
We find out what's going on in Larkford, but it's not just about that. It's about social media, how it intrudes in everyone's life. It's about what goes on behind closed doors, you think everything is OK, when in fact it's not.
This book made me think alot about life, how modern day impacts on our lives and often not in a good way. Do we give ourselves time for ourselves and the people we love?
An absolutely fantastic book and highly recommended. You don't need to have read the first book, Out of Practice but it does help to set the scene. Each character, scene and storyline is well written and thought out.
I really hope there is at least another book in the series, to tie up the loose ends. ..
Well written with lots of things happening
