Welcome to the village of Ballybucklebo. Come and say hello to Dr. O'Reilly's odd-as-two-left-feet patients; his housekeeper, Mrs. Kinky Kinkaid; and O'Reilly's pets: Arthur Guinness, the beer-swilling black Lab, and Lady MacBeth, the demonically possessed white cat. And of course, to young Dr. Barry Laverty.

After Barry's first month as an assistant to crusty Dr. O'Reilly, he has been offered a permanent spot. But Laverty's excitement is dashed when one of his patients unexpectedly dies. The damage to his reputation is enormous, and he and O'Reilly must work to resolve the question of Barry's responsibility for the death.

They also have to figure out how to save the 400-year-old village pub. Plans are afoot to not renew the 100-year lease and instead transform the old pub into a sparkling new tourist trap. To make matters even worse, Patricia Spence, the love of Barry's life, announces she is trying to win a scholarship to distant Cambridge University, all the way in England.

Beautifully evocative of a gentler, simpler time, An Irish Country Village magically captures the charm, wit, and ribald humor of a vanished Irish countryside and its people. Download and start listening now!

    " It was a great read. Nice to read a good book that is uplifting and not a downer. No weird characters or "shoot 'um up" stuff! "

    " I had to force myself to finish this book. It lacked depth and character definition. Everyone was an Irish caricature instead. "

    " The second book in this series, and I'm still really enjoying it. If you're looking for an indepth, dramatic plot, you will not find it here. The storylines are light and simple, making it a very enjoyable, relaxing read. As other reviewers have mentioned, the explanation of Irish colloquialisms can get a bit tedious (but not enough for me to disregard the book entirely). I look forward to reading more of these books by Patrick Taylor. "
