These official short stories were later turned into the well-loved Irish Country Doctor series of books. Piece by piece the stories put a shine on what it is that readers love about the characters.

If you have a problem remembering details about books especially series then you will not mind the repeating of some of the stories. As for me, I have not read the whole series and I have been reading them out of order, which I love I can do that and not be confused. I love reading about the two doctors and their first meeting and inevitable friendship. Love...love⦠the elder doctor's dog and cat, they are too funny. Their quirky housekeeper Kinky.

There is really nothing I dislike about the short stories. I have seen what other reviews say about it being repetitive because these stories are all in the 9 previous books but for me, it is a nice refresher.

I love the Irish Country Doctor series because it makes me feel like I am in Ireland among my favorite people. I will continue to read the series. This is actually the fifth one I have read and this book 9.5 in the series.
