I got hooked last year on Irish author Patrick Taylor and his stories about two doctors practicing in Ireland. The stories take us to Ballybucklebo where we meet Drs. Laverty and O'Reilly. One cannot help but get wrapped up in the lives of the villagers as they progress through a continuous flow of events that keep us engaged from first word to last. Taylor has the ability to conjure vivid images with his detailed depiction of our newly met friends. This series is worth reading...and sharing with a friend. I cannot help but anxiously await the next...and the next...I'd love to hear from you if you've read any of the books!
