Minding Frankie

After powering through the book that was supposed to last me all through vacation, I found myself scouring my mom's bookshelves looking for a nice little beach read.


Amazon's Synopsis: "Baby Frankie is born into an unusual family. Her mother is desperate to find someone to take care of her child and she doesn't have much time. Noel doesn't seem to be the most promising of fathers but despite everything, he could well be Frankie's best hope. As for Lisa, she is prepared to give up everything for the man she loves; surely he's going to love her back? And Moira is having none of it. She knows what's right, and has the power to change the course of Frankie's life ...but Moira is hiding secrets of her own. MINDING FRANKIE is a story about unconventional families, relationships which aren't quite what they seem, and the child at the heart of everyone's lives ..."

What I Thought: The synopsis on Good Reads was so tiny I had to turn to Amazon. Theirs isn't much better but, there you have it. I've never read anything by Binchy before so I wasn't sure what to expect. Was it the most riveting story? No. Was it fine for reading by the pool with enough interesting characters and small plot twists to hold my attention? Yes.

Rating: * * 1/2
