The Wily O’Reilly : Irish Country Stories, by Patrick Taylor. Long before Dr. Fingal Flahertie O’Reilly made most readers acquaintance in An Irish Country Doctor, he appeared in a series of humorous columns originally published in Stitches: the journal of Medical Humor. Legions of devoted fans can savor the enchanting origins of the Irish Country series, newcomers to Ballybucklebo can meet O’Reilly for the very first time… An ex-Navy boxing champion, classical scholar, crypt-philanthropist, widower, and hard working general practitioner, O’Reilly is crafty and cantankerous in these charming slices of rural Irish life. Whether he’s educating a naive man of the cloth in the facts of life, dealing with hypochondriacs and malingerers, clashing with pigheaded colleagues, or raising a pint in the pub, the wily O’Reilly knows a doctors work is never done, even if some of his “cures” can’t be found in any medical text!….

Winter’s Tale, by Mark Halprin. New York City is subsumed in arctic winds, dark nights, and white lights, it’s life unfolds, for it is an extraordinary hive of the imagination, the greatest house ever built, and nothing exists that can check it’s vitality. One night in winter, Peter Lake, orphan and master-mechanic, attempts to rob a fortress-like mansion on the Upper West Side. Though he thinks the house is empty, the daughter of the house is home. Thus begins the love between Peter Lake, a middle-aged Irish burglar, and Beverly Penn, a young girl who is dying. Peter, a simple, uneducated man, because of a love that, at first he does not fully understand, is driven to stop time and bring back the dead. His great struggle, in a city ever alight with it’s own energy and besieged by unprecedented winters is one of the most beautiful and extraordinary stories of American literature….

Miss Dimple Picks a Peck of Trouble, by Mignon Ballard. It’s the summer of 1944 and the world seems mired in a war that will never end. On the home front the people of Elderberry, Georgia, are doing everything they can to support the troops. Even with a war on, the peaches are ripe for picking. As veteran teacher Miss Dimple Kilpatrick and her colleagues work in the orchard, they hear frantic calls for help: an eighteen-year-old girl, Prentice, has been missing and is later found murdered. Miss Dimple and her fellow teachers are determined to find the killer. Although Prentice had recently broken up with her boyfriend, the most obvious suspect isn’t always the right one: Prentice may have been keeping some secrets, and a local woman claims to have witnessed the whole abduction, except she also believes she is Scarlett O’Hara, that Nazi spies are pursuing her, and she knows where the Confederate gold is buried. Figuring out what really happened to Prentice is sure to be a challenge….
