The Practice at Larkford has suddenly been thrust under the spotlight – and its nomination as a ‘NHS Model Surgery’ is causing the team major headaches. Dr Holly Graham should be basking in the glow of her new romance with fellow doctor, Taffy – but she is worried that the team is prioritising plaudits over patients, and her favourite resident, the irreverent and entertaining Elsie, is facing a difficult diagnosis. Add to that the chaos of family life and the strain is starting to show. Dr Dishy Dan Carter’s obsession with work is masking unhappiness elsewhere – he can’t persuade girlfriend Julia to settle down. It’s only as Julia’s mother comes to stay that he realizes what she has been hiding for so long. Alice Walker joins the team like a breath of fresh air and her assistance dog Coco quickly wins everyone round – which is just as well, because Coco and Alice will soon need some help of their own. Can they pull together and become the Dream Team that the NHS obviously thinks they are?
I had the pleasure of reading a proof copy of the first book in the Larkford series last year and met the lovely penny.
I loved every page and was so excited when knew there was going to be another book !
This is just a brilliant series full of humour and warmth .
The characters are great and we met even more in this book and as a dog lover I adored the new addition of coco who is one very clever pooch .
There is always a worry when you read a sequel that it wont be as good but there is no fear here .
Pennys writing is superb and you are instantly taken into Larkford.
There is never a dull moment especially with Holly and her lively twins and adjusting to a new relationship . We see different sides to all the people we met in out of practice proving you should never judge a book by its cover .
Life is hectic an bringing new challenges for everybody .
A lovely book and I cant wait to read more as there is going to be a book three.
