She knows her way around risqué romances, but author, Charlie Faulkner, only dreams of starring in her own love story. Drowning her sorrows in takeaway pizza, she writes what she's never experienced.

When she does venture out of her writing cave, chaos and medical disasters follow. After a trip to the emergency room, the handsome and capable doctor ignites long-forgotten sparks of passion. Guy Fitton is the guy for her and exactly what the doctor ordered. The only problem is that he may just see her as a crazy, accident-prone woman … not the desirable temptress she craves to be.

Will Charlie get her "happily ever after" with the sexy doctor or is she destined to rely on the pizza delivery man for company?

While The Best Medicine is a standalone story, it's the third in the Dilbury Village series of romantic comedy novels. All of them will be set in the quaint fictitious English hamlet in the Shropshire countryside, but feature a different village couples' story.

Warning, if you are of a sensitive disposition when it comes to toilet humour, then the Dilbury Village series may not be for you!

Okay, so The Best Medicine isn’t my favorite book in the series (Never The Bride is) but I did find this one fairly enjoyable. I think I was more disappointed that it didn’t have as many laugh out loud moments as Never the Bride, which had me laughing out loud the whole way through. That in itself is what I come to associate Charlotte Fallowfield with. Now, that doesn’t mean this isn’t funny because there were some hilarious parts, but they were few and far in between.

That being said, The Best Medicine is a book about TIMING. It’s a book about medical calamities, find love in unexpected ways, and learning to trust your instincts. If you have read the other books in the series (which are all interconnected standalones) you will notice this is Charlie’s book. Charlie is an author of romance novels (of the dirty kind) and has a deep love for Pizza. Good thing she befriended the local pizzaman! She is also a walking mishap and finds herself in the hospital more times than she can count. Good thing the ER doctor isn’t hard to look at! Now she just needs to get him interested in her. Can she do that with the huge rash on her lady bits from a metal allergy? LOL this may be one of her “finest” moments within the novel… So funny!

In between constantly hurting herself and making long lasting friendships Charlie is on the lookout for love. Could it be the local ER doctor that has treated her in some pretty uncomfortable positions? Or will she find it in the least expected ways with someone who has been right in front of her the whole time? You’ll have to go on this wild journey with Charlie and the gang to find out!

Overall, I am seriously loving this series. I hope Charlotte will be bringing us the next book soon as waiting almost 2 years for it is killing me! I adore escaping to Dilbury Village with the colorful characters and their hearts of gold!
