    Another Vernon Coleman success The latest adventures of Mrs Caldicot and chums, of course, did not disappoint. I tried to restrict my reading to make it last longer but as usual, I was hooked. Reading the three previous books in the series gives you an introduction to the characters but is not essential. It is funny, nostalgic, endearing and a thoroughly good read. It is one of those books that makes you feel good and wish it wouldn't end. There are many digs at present day bureaucracy and most Another Vernon Coleman success The latest adventures of Mrs Caldicot and chums, of course, did not disappoint.

There are many digs at present day bureaucracy and most will agree how ridiculous it all is. I look forward to the next Mrs Caldicot book. No pressure, Mr Coleman!

    This is probably the last Mrs Caldicot story I will ever read, as Vernon Coleman doesn't seem to have written any more, and when he does, I will reconsider my position. Although this was very entertaining I think the plot was a little strained and clearly the first one, 'Cabbage War' is the best. I will have to hunt around for another series to get stuck into and I will value any suggestions, but it will have to reach a high standard to be up there with Vernon Coleman's Young Doctor and Mrs This is probably the last Mrs Caldicot story I will ever read, as Vernon Coleman doesn't seem to have written any more, and when he does, I will reconsider my position.

    Great book I have sadly, read almost all of Mr. Coleman's books. I say sadly because he cannot possibly write them fast enough for me to enjoy. Once you begin you will find yourself in a most delightful world filled with characters positively unforgettable. Absolutely a wonderful storyteller with great characters. I look forward to meeting up with them in the next adventure.

    A really pleasant story to read on a snowy afternoon. I really like Mr. Coleman's writing style and his characters are loveable. A nice escape from our chaotic world. I enjoy Mr. Coleman's books. The characters are a loveable group and their can do spirit gives the message that people are valuable at any age. A very pleasant read for a snowy afternoon on the couch.

    Pure escapism I always feel that an author is supposed to take us on a journey. What a delightful gentle journey this was. I didn't want it to end. I hope we get a chance to visit them on their pier again.

    Good read I enjoyed Mrs. Caldicot's Turkish Delight in its fanciful story. Generally, I prefer Dr. Coleman's Bilbury series the most, and his diaries, but this was a good departure.

    My summary. I have read many of Dr Coleman's books and enjoyed every one. The country doctor was the last ones that I read.
