A love story for the books!

”Sometimes great love starts with friendship, Charlie. We all dream of that instant, all-consuming need and passion for someone, and to have that returned, but it’s rare to find that and have it last a lifetime. When the passion fades, great friendship is what will see you through the rest of your years.”

I can’t get enough of the ”Dilbury Village” series. My hope is that Ms. Fallowfield will continue to write about this charming and quai

Favorite Quotes:

So, how do you write such realistic and steamy sex scenes? I started one of your books as soon as I heard you’d moved in, and I have to say, that first steamy scene, with the dirty-mouthed Frenchman, nearly necessitated a trip to accident and emergency for the fitting of a pacemaker. I haven’t had such a vivid and exciting dream in a long time.

Don’t underestimate her… She looks like butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth, but underneath that sweet granny exterior she likes to portray

Actual Rating: 3.5 stars

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 t

This author easily became one of my favorite for the rom-com genre and I eagerly await every book of this series.

Charlie,our heroine, is an erotica author new to the Dilbury village. She is a workhaolic, accident prone and a love beyond measure for pizza.
I liked how the girls we met in the previous books accepted Charlie as one of them instantly,their dynamics made me smile more than once.

I recommend to go in this blindly to savour this story to the fullest.

As always Charlotte Fallowfield has made me howl with laughter and had me reaching for tissues to wipe away the tears streaming out of my eyes from the amount of laughter!

I’m always super excited when I see an ARC from Charlotte land on my kindle because I know without a doubt that something outrageously funny is going to go down in said book and The Best Medicine was no different. I literally had to stop reading to get myself together. The medical mishaps that Charlie experienced is down right

Book three in the Dilbury Village series is very close to my heart - focussing on Charlie Faulkner's story, this one is full of medical mishaps, all of which have happened to me personally. I kid you not. It's easy with the benefit of hindsight to see the humour in these situations, while some, at the time, weren't funny at all. I hope that you'll enjoy this latest instalment as much as I did writing it. This little English village, and its inhabitants, has already wormed its way into my heart. ...more

It is fun, light, chick lit.
Not my favorite in the series.

And considering I loved Abbie story, book one, this is huge let down. Maybe is mood I'm in and I dragged my feet to read this. I usually have that feeling if I can't get into a story and stall the reading I 'm not loving it, well then I'm not loving it. I didn't care much about main characters. Charlie is nice and fun and accident prune writer. Sure her injuries and all the hospital visit were entertainin

I was provided with an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

Charlie, Charlie, Charlie - how I was shouting at you for not seeing what was right in front of your face rather than be blinded by the white coat! When she had her lightbulb moment I gave a huge sigh of she just had to get her HEA - and I am happy to say she did!

The humour in these books always make me smile and Charlie is so accident prone, it will certainly make you chuckle.

As with every book in the series, prepare to cry tears of laughter with this incredible story following one of its well known characters of the series so far...Charlie Faulkner.

Charlie, an accident-prone, crazy-cat-owner and pizza loving Author (I love her already!). But hang in there...

Charlie is one of the most easy-going, kind-hearted women, who is a good friend to all the characters we have met and love already, and slots so well into Dilbury. Her antics included!

5 star review of The Best Medicine (Dilbury Village #3) by Charlotte Fallowfield

This is the third book in Charlotte Fallowfield's latest series and in my opinion she has another winner on her hands. This is romance novelist Charlie Faulkner story and oh what a story it was. If I could give these books more than 5 stars then I certainly would.

I laughed so much I cried in this book; it was fabulous and I couldn't put it down. The writing is well executed, hilarious, sweet, dramatic and honestly

Charlotte brings this romantic comedy to life in front of our eyes. Never a dull moment in this story for sure. The highly accident prone Charlie moves into Dilbury and with her frequent visits to the local hospital makes you laugh out loud with her antics. Kitt, the quiet unassuming lead male is supportive and so so kind everyone should have this type of friend in their life. The story brings in other characters from the series and especially Daphne, the funniest OAP I've ever heard of. It's fu ...more

Charlotte Fallowfield never disappoints me! I loved this book to pieces.

Lust and infatuation sometimes make us blind and stupid. Love is just in front of us and we don’t see it, we don’t even recognize it.
This is what happens to Charlie Faulkner. She’s a brilliant writer, smart, obsessed with pizza and clumsy. And her clumsiness brings her several times to the A&E dept. where Dr. Guy Fitton, aka McFitty, soon becomes Charlie’s wet dream. He’s the perfect male she writes about in her books.

This is book 3 of the dilbury village series... I suggest reading the others first.

The best medicine focuses on Charlie, the erotica author from previous books. Again Charlotte has produced another amazing book with the amazing, heart warming characters from her other books. Without going into to much detail, Charlie has a pretty hard decision to make and she takes her sweet time doing it. Along the way she has some ups but oh so many down's!

A good book allows you to feel emotion, whether it's suspenseful, sad, happy, bewilderment, or down right laughing out loud. It's always good to laugh! Can't wait for 4!

It was so good to be back in Dilbury for a while, i really missed it.
Whilst this book is okay to read as a stand alone, i highly recommend you read the first 2 books of the series before starting this one because you miss out on quite a lot of jokes.
Really lovely novel to read. It's light, sweet and really funny. Can't wait for the next novel!

ANOTHER superb story from the wonderfully talented Charlotte Fallowfield.

This was excellent, everything that I’ve grown to love in a book from Charlotte Fallowfield. Moreover, what I’ve come to expect from a series.

The characters are brought to life with such great imagery, I almost believe they exist. The ‘Dames of Dilbury’ are back with full force ! There are so many great laughs in this story and when you reach the point of enlightenment, you wonder why you never saw it coming !

There's so much fun and laughter in this book. I love Dilbury Village and the close knit family of friends that live there. Charlie's mishaps make you cringe and laugh out loud at the same time; and Kitt stole my heart the minute he showed up in his pizza slice uniform. This book will give you a permanent smile the entire time you are reading. I simply love this series and I love Pizzaman.

The Best Medicine is the third release in The Dilbury series and it truly is another great read by Charlotte Fallowfield to add to your collection. Each title in The Dilbury series can be read as a standalone, but for the reader to fully connect and understand the true beauty of this series, community and characters; I’d recommend you read them in the order of release.

When you have a book that the main character, Charlie Faulkner, is an author of romance novels that lean toward erotic, how can it not be a great book.

Charlie has moved to the small town of Dilbury. During this book we get to meet and get to know her new neighbors. They add an extra layer of warmth and laughter to this story.

Poor Charlie is the most accident prone person I know. If it's going to happen it's going to happen to her. Due to her injuries she has ended up in the Accident/Emergency Ro

The Best Medicine is yet again a 5 star read. I wish I could rate it higher, damn rating system!

Charlotte is a character I have been dying to learn more about. As one of the Dilbury residents, I needed to hear her story, I knew it would be a good one. And I wasn’t disappointed.

I have been eagerly awaiting to read about erotic author Charlie Faulkner and her obsession with Dr Mcfitty at the local A&E dept.

After reading all of Charlotte's books so far and absolutely loving them, I was really looking forward to seeing what this one had in store. The Best Medicine is focussed on the not so love life of Charlie, the erotic author of the quiet village of Dilbury.

Super accident prone, Charlie is always visiting A&E where she bumps into Dr Fitton, aka McFitty - and decides she needs him in her life. A case of love or lust? Her Friday evenings also involve her addiction, a pizza delivery; cue the arrival

Welcome to Dilbury. Where life is never dull. So true for this little town I want to move to.

This third installment in the series of the Dilbury Village is just as delightful as previous books. I recommend reading the previous books to get all the goodness the village has to offer, but also because you have to meet Abbie, Georgie, and Daphne from the beginning. Also for when Charlie, who this book is about, moved to the village.

I was waiting for her story and excited about how she would fit in

The Best Medicine by Charlotte Fallowfield is the 3rd book in her incredible Dilbury Village series. Although each book can be read as a stand-alone I would highly recommend reading them in order. Not only do you get to experience the amazing writing of Charlotte but the background you get on each of these characters - their stories, their personalities - benefits from seeing that developed over all the books. It adds to the whole experience of the series and makes it even better than it already ...more
