A laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from Charlotte Fallowfield, Amazon bestselling author of Until We Collide, Never The Bride, and The Great Escape.
Despite being a successful author of risqué romance novels, Charlie Faulkner had yet to star in her own love story. Drowning her sorrows in takeaway pizza, and at risk of getting wedged in her favourite writing chair, she despaired of ever finding the kind of all-consuming love that she wrote about in her books.
When she did venture out of her writing cave, chaos and disaster followed, with many a trip to the emergency room of the local hospital. It was there she fell head over heels for the handsome doctor who often treated her, Guy Fitton. The trouble was that with her medical track record, she wasn’t sure if he’d see her as a sexy, desirable temptress or just a crazy, accident-prone woman, with a medical file so heavy it needed its own trolley.
Would Charlie get her “happy ever after” with Dr. Fitton or end up with the other significant male in her life, the pizza delivery guy?
While The Best Medicine is a standalone story, it's the third in the Dilbury Village series of romantic comedy novels. All of them are set in the quaint ficticious English hamlet in the Shropshire countryside, but feature a different village couples' story.
After reading book 1 and 2 of the Dilbury Village Series I couldn't wait to read Charlie's story. After being introduced to her in the other books I was hoping that her story would be just as entertaining as Abbie and Georgie's were. Well was there any doubt, of course not! Charlie is such a lively and brilliant character that I think it would be difficult for anyone to dislike her. I was hoping for a happy ever after for her straight away.
Charlie definitely gets herself into some scrapes along the way meaning she ends up in hospital a fair few times and straight into the path of Dr Fitton. Is he the one though? I loved catching up with Abbie and Georgie but don't feel like you are missing out if you start with this book as I do think it works as a standalone. However I highly recommend starting at the beginning just because you will be missing out on such a brilliant series!
In The Best Medicine there is friendship, love, accidents galore and of course pizza which all come together to make a fun and fabulous story. Full of laughs, embarassing moments (well for Charlie) and a truly heartwarming vibe that will leave you smiling!
Five stars from me!
