An Irish Country Courtship

An Irish Country Courtship
by Patrick Taylor

Here we are again at 1, Main Street, Ballybucklebo, Northern Ireland visiting with Doctors Fingal O’Reilly and Barry Laverty and their faithful housekeeper, Kinky Kincaid. In this sequel, Cupid decides to pay a visit to both doctors. Dr. O’Reilly finds himself becoming interested in his college sweetheart, Kitty O’ Hallorhan; and, Dr. Laverty is in love with Patricia Spence. In the meantime, a rift develops between Kinky and Kitty, and Dr. O’Reilly needs to solve this problem.

Even though the doctors have their own personal problems, they never turn their backs on anyone from the village seeking their assistance or advice. This time it is a race horse scam and Dr. O’Reilly is determined to get to the bottom of it and involves Dr. Laverty. But Dr. Laverty has his own problems. He likes the villagers and feels at home in Ballybucklebo but is seriously contemplating going into a specialized field.

Will there be changes at 1, Main Street and for the village of Ballybucklebo?

Other great reads by Patrick Taylor: An Irish Country Doctor; An Irish Country Village; An Irish Country Christmas; and An Irish Country Girl.

Is there a sequel planned to An Irish Country Courtship? I need to see if Barry finds love again after losing Patricia, perhaps with the school teacher...?
