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.

How could you not love the wonderful, wholesome, emotional, real joys that Mauve Binchy continues to share with her audience. Beautifully read by Kate who honoured the words by bringing us all together to share another lovely visit with these "family members" of the Mauve Binchy world she graciously shares with us all. So enjoyable - please make yourself "feel good". Make sure this book is on your list - become part of the love and inspiration her characters share and impart on its listeners.

In tough times, crime is one of the few things that still pay, but if defence attorney Mickey Haller was expecting an uptick in business during the economic downturn, the reality is a different story. Even people needing legal representation to keep them out of jail have to make cut-backs, it seems.

Again I was more than happy with the Michael Connelly that I have come to really enjoy. He does make the reader (well I really mean the listener in this case) step into the world he creates as we keep listening to his words unravel into another one of his great tales. I was very pleased with the narrator and his ability to ensure the listener a well told story. I feel a good buy alround.
