Description

An Irish Country Courtship -- the fifth book in Patrick Taylor's New York Times bestselling Irish Country series

Barry Laverty is settling in to Ballybucklebo, but with only a few more months before he becomes a full partner in Dr. O'Reilly's medical practice, an unexpected romantic reversal gives him second thoughts. Is tending to routine coughs and colds all he wants from life? Doctor Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly has personal upheavals as well. After mourning his deceased wife for decades, he's found a new love. But the budding courtship is not going over well with the doctors' housekeeper, who fears having her position usurped by O'Reilly's new flame.

Meanwhile, life goes on in Ballybucklebo, and the two doctors will need all of their combined wit and compassion to put things right—just in time for their lives to change forever.
