Taylor’s third book in his popular Irish Country series gives listeners an earful of some of the most colorful and eccentric characters to ever warm a stool in an Ulster County pub. John Keating’s wonderful sing-song Irish brogue breathes life and seasonal warmth into this cast of reprobates from the little village of Balleybucklebo. As the Christmas season approaches, two doctors deal with quirky patients and love interests with charismatic charm and humor. Particularly enjoyable is Keating’s characterization of the awkwardly sinister patient-poaching interloper, the gawky Dr. Fitzpatrick. There is enough charm and seasonal warmth in this package to replicate the spirit of the holidays. A Forge hardcover (Reviews, Aug. 18). (Nov.)
