Publisher's Summary

Out of Practice is based around a large country medical practice, which proves to be a hotbed of rivalry, resentment and romance - and that's just the doctors. Think James Herriot meets House.

Meet married mum of two and successful GP Holly Graham as she relocates her family to join the team at The Practice at Beckerford, hoping to find the peaceful life she craves, despite the chaos that comes with her two-year-old twins and the troublesome state of her marriage. It will certainly be a challenge to keep her private and professional lives separate in such a tight-knit community.

Her colleagues have their own issues to contend with. The gorgeous Dr. Dan Carter is struggling to focus on work, and the last thing he needs is any more stress; having his ambitious ex-girlfriend, Dr. Julia Channing, working alongside him isn't really helping. Thankfully the rather delectable Dr. Taffy Jones is on hand to distract Holly from the escalating situation at home.

Feisty octogenarian and resident celebrity Elsie Townsend is Holly's favorite patient and saving grace. Elsie's inspirational life lessons come at the perfect moment, as the practice is suddenly under threat of imminent closure, and Holly rediscovers her voice and her priorities just in time.

    "Easy to listen to and great story"

    I listen to books whilst travelling with work, I have actively looked forward to each journey to see what happens next.
    I was disappointed when it finished and would love to know what happens next for the characters.

    Easy to listen to and well narrated.

    "Just wonderful!!"

    I could not stop listening to it, the narrator was fantastic and portrayed the characters brilliantly. Loved Elsie and Taffy.
    Without giving anything away I wish she would have said more things to her husband to stand up for herself but apart from that I was hooked all the way through.
    Would definately recommend

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Interesting story with lots of fascinating characters. Evolved in a satisfying way


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Holly she was really patient orientated & coping well with errant husband & young twins.


    Have you listened to any of Anna Bentinck’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Always a joy to listen too. Speaks clearly & not too fast.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really enjoyed it all


    Any additional comments?

    Please will she write another book!

    "Good story"

    This book had a good but predictable story line. The reading was done nicely and she gave a voice to all the characters, some good some not so good! Didn't like the swearing in it but that's just personal preference. Would get another one of the authors books to try. Hope this helps 😎
