I was eagerly anticipating a return to Larkford, the Cotswold village where the action in this series of books takes place, following the first novel in the series, Out of Practice, which I thoroughly enjoyed last year. This book catches up with Holly, who has left her failing marriage behind, found new love with fellow GP and is working as a partner in the medical practice she joined in the first book. We're reunited with the many Larkford characters, from Holly's lovely twin boys through Elsie, Lizzie, the Major and many others.
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.

The Practice is thrown into panic when they're held up as the "model practice" and put to the test. Relationships are tested to their limits. A new doctor is employed along with another new recruit. Behind closed doors secret battles are taking place and threatening to become public knowledge.

So happy to go back to Larkford. The story picks up after the earlier book with all the characters making a reappearance. I love the way the story had developed and hope that there will be another book in the series so that I can find out what happens to Holly, Taffy,Dan, Grace and Elsie to name a few. A lovely read.
