When Noel learns that his terminally ill former flame is pregnant with his child, he agrees to take guardianship of the baby girl once she’s born. But as a single father battling demons of his own, Noel can’t do it alone.
Fortunately, he has a competent, caring network of friends, family and neighbors: Lisa, his unlucky-in-love classmate, who moves in with him to help him care for little Frankie around the clock; his American cousin, Emily, always there with a pep talk; the newly retired Dr. Hat, with more time on his hands than he knows what to do with; Dr. Declan and Fiona and their baby son, Frankie’s first friend; and many eager babysitters, including old friends Signora and Aidan and Frankie’s doting grandparents, Josie and Charles.
But not everyone is pleased with the unconventional arrangement, especially a nosy social worker, Moira, who is convinced that Frankie would be better off in a foster home. Now it’s up to Noel to persuade her that everyone in town has something special to offer when it comes to minding Frankie.

Classic Binchy, does not disappoint
Would you listen to Minding Frankie again? Why?
Yes. The story is gripping and I love the accents.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Minding Frankie?
When Noel's parents realized they could honor their saint as they wanted to, but also expand that by giving a playground to the community.
Which scene was your favorite?
The dedication of the new playground.
If you could take any character from Minding Frankie out to dinner, who would it be and why?
Probably the cousin, she is a very interesting character and seems to have the answer to everything!
Any additional comments?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It kept my attention from beginning to end. No snoozing off like I do with many audio books!
