    Readers of Patrick Taylor's books know Mrs. Kinky Kincaid as the unflappable housekeeper who looks after two frequently frazzled doctors in the colourful Irish village of Ballybucklebo. She is a trusted fixture in the lives of those around her, and it often seems as though Kinky has always been there.Nothing could be farther from the truth.

    Story

    I have enjoyed every minute if the Irish Country Doctor series by Patrick Taylor. I will say that this was my least favorite of all the books but evem with that said, I still loved it.It was great to have a backstory on the lovable houskeeper, Kinky Kencaid. I also would have preferred that the same narrator had read this book. It was a little disconderting for Kinky to have a new voice. Thank you Mr. Taylor for many hours of enjoyment.

    Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who worked the same land as her slave ancestors, yet her cells, taken without her knowledge, became one of the most important tools in medicine. The first immortal human cells grown in culture, they are still alive today, though she has been dead for more than 60 years.

    Thanks to this author for her tenacety in finding the true story of Henrietta Lacks. Her search for the story behind these cells that have made such a difference in medical research takes many twist and turns. A great true story and an interesting read.

Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a firsthand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen.

    I love this entire family of men and their Mom. As a mother of three grown sons of my own their relationships ring true.The women in the series are strong. The author really allows you to get to know all the characters in a meaningful way. I can't wait for the next book to see if Hope and Ryder will finally get together. Great narrator too.!

    What did you like best about The Darling Dahlias and the Cucumber Tree? What did you like least?

    Finding out the answers to the mystery surrounding the cosmetics girl was the most iinteresting part of the story . Also the insite into the small town lives of that period. I thought the story overall good but somehow the tellin of it was meandering and a little slow.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending wad satisfying but not surprising at all.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    She could have been more southern


    Was The Darling Dahlias and the Cucumber Tree worth the listening time?

    I did enjoy the book but I bought it on a recommendation from audible and had looked forward to it with an anticipation that was somewhat disappointed.

    Truly Plaice, an overly large and ungainly girl, is the polar opposite of her sister, Serena Jane, the epitome of feminine perfection. With their parents dead, Truly and Serena Jane are separated: Serena Jane to live a life of privilege as the future May Queen and Truly to live on the outskirts of town, the subject of constant abuse and humiliation.

    Tracie says: "Pretty good - but could have been Truly good!"

    It might take a little to get into this story but once you do It's a very entertaining tale.
