    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of An Irish Country Girl to be better than the print version?

    I can only listen as I can't see well enough to read the printed word. A good narrator is worth his/her weight in gold.

    Kinky


    Which character – as performed by Terry Donnelly – was your favorite?

    Kinky


    If you could take any character from An Irish Country Girl out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Meticulously researched, and superbly imagined, The Commoner is the mesmerizing, moving, and surprising story of a brutally rarefied and controlled existence, at once hidden and exposed, and of a complex relationship between two isolated women who, despite being visible to all, are truly understood only by each other.

    (103)

    Love is in the air in the colourful Ulster village of Ballybucklebo, where Dr. Fingal Flahertie O’Reilly has finally proposed to the darling of his youth, Kitty O’Hallorhan. There’s a wedding to be planned, but before O’Reilly can make it to the altar, he and his young colleague, Barry Laverty, M.B., must deal with the usual round of eccentric patients—and crises both large and small. Being a G.P. in a place like Ballybucklebo often means more than simply splinting broken bones and tending to aches and pains.

    Angelyn says: "Wonderful Story, Fabulous Narrator"
    "Love this series"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I've told several friends about this series - highly recommend reading these books


    What other book might you compare An Irish Country Wedding to and why?

    No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith


    What does John Keating bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His narration is superlative. You know who's speaking by his voice.


    Could you see An Irish Country Wedding being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No. I prefer listening to the books and forming my own pictures.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to a follow-up book to see what Barry Laverty ends up doing with his career.
