My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a charming series similar to James Herriot's "All Creatures Great and Small." It features the newly qualified GP, Doctor Barry Laverty, who is currently being supervised by Fingal Flahertie O’Reilly in the small village of Ballybucklebo. Like the Harriot's book, the village is charming and the cases are interesting. In this secong book, Barry is under a cloud because of the death of a patient. Could he have overlooked the symptoms which lead to his death? His widow thinks so, so Barry is anxious for the autopsy which will either clear him or end his career before it began.
Add to this some wonderful village characters, an intrigue or 2 and marvelous housekeeper who tries to keep the two men in line and you have an enjoyable and interesting comfort read which can be enjoyed over and over.
