Good food, good story

I listened to this book. In fact I've listened to it many, many times, often while preparing for some festivity. I loved the detail of the catering business, and while some may have found the story line predictable, the characters are charming and the story telling lovely. The author has a wonderful way of painting the unique and quirky in her characters, even the ones we don't like. The narrator, too is engaging, beautiful dialects lending real life to the story.

Couldn't Even Finish It!

And I'm a Maeve Binchy fan. I've read all of her stuff, but I truly believe that this marks the turning point in her writing career. I'm afraid to get anything new that she writes - I don't want to tarnish the warm regard I have for her earlier books.

    Not her best

    I did enjoy this book, but Tara Road is one of my all time favorites, and this was not as good to me. I did pass it on to a friend and she did enjoy it, so I would recommend it.

    Not that enjoyable...

    It's a lighthearted book for those who prefer family-related stories. While it was interesting to read what happened in the lives of the various characters and see how they dealt with different and more often than not, tough situations, the ending was too predictable. No surprising twists or anything that hooked me to the book. Rather, I find the parts about how they went about their catering business more enjoyable than the lives of the characters.

    too much food descriptions

    This was not as good as other books by Binchey. Her characters had depth but she went on in too much detail about food. It seemed that she was trying to fill pages. Ending was predictable.

    Rather disappointed

    After enjoying Tara Road immensely, I was terribly disappointed in this story. I felt as though the prime character lacked reasons for admiration. Maeve Binchy did speckle humor throughout the story well with the use of the twins. But I found myself skimming jus to get through the novel. I sincerely hope she ends her career with stronger writing.
