Minding Frankie is a wonderful read, filled with Maeve Binchy's signature characters - there is no way not to love them.
Things are not necessarily as they seem in this fast paced story. The characters build depth and interest as the story builds little by little. Hard to put down!
The unique and creative plot is fleshed out by Roberts' reliable warm and interesting characters. Just plain enjoyable.
I would have enjoyed this book more if it hadn't felt like I was being F-bombed. Maybe it plays differently on the printed page, but in the audio version all the swearing felt distracting and gratuitous. Honestly hampered my enjoyment of an otherwise pretty good book.
I bought several Konrath books on a 'paperback' sale, and started with the first in the Jack Daniels series. I really like Jack and the main characters, but the some of the murder scenes are stomach-turningly detailed. The villian is creepy, I get it - not sure I need this much detail. I will still listen to the next book in the series, because I really do like the female detective lead character.
Performance was really enjoyable. With both a male and a female voice, the characters really come alive and the actors really differentiate well between the characters.
