An Irish Country Christmas

Patrick Taylor, Author . Forge $24.95 (495p) ISBN 978-0-7653-2070-4

This year's bounty of yuletide fiction is a mixed bag—some big-name authors, a few duds and a couple of keepers.

An Irish Country Christmas Patrick Taylor . Forge , $24.95 (496p) ISBN 978-0-7653-2070-4

Taylor's delightful holiday update to the Irish Country series returns to Ballybucklebo, where Dr. Fingal O'Reilly and junior partner Barry Laverty are still practicing their humorous brand of country medicine. As Christmas draws closer, the two men contend with a variety of comical village ailments and the usual array of Ballybucklebo characters, as well as romantic troubles. O'Reilly is trying to decide if he will allow himself to love again with the vivacious Kitty O'Halloran, and Laverty is distraught because his girlfriend can't seem to make it home for the holidays. Then a new doctor comes to town and causes a ruckus by poaching their patients and prescribing ludicrous cures. This has all the charm of Taylor's previous books and adds Christmas warmth without sacrificing credibility. (Nov.)
