Book Description

31 Jan 2013

An irresistible, heart-warming novel from the much-loved author of numerous Sunday Times bestsellers, including A WALK IN THE PARK and TO THE MOON AND BACK.

Dexter Yates loves his fun, care-free London life; he has money, looks and girlfriends galore. But everything changes overnight when his sister dies, leaving him in charge of her eight-month-old daughter Delphi. How is he ever going to cope?

Comic-strip artist Molly Hayes lives in the beautiful Cotswold village of Briarwood. When it comes to relationships, she has a history of choosing all the wrong men. Leaving the city behind, Dex moves to Briarwood - a much better place to work on his parenting skills - and he and Molly become neighbours. There's an undeniable connection between them. But if Dexter's going to adapt, he first has a lot to learn about Molly, about other people's secrets...and about himself.

More About the Author

Jill Mansell lives with her partner and children in Bristol, and writes full time.
Actually that's not true; she watches TV, eats fruit gums, admires the rugby players training in the sports field behind her house, and spends hours on the internet Tweeting and marvelling at how many other writers have blogs. Only when she's completely run out of displacement activities does she actually write.

5.0 out of 5 stars Her best novel so far xxxx 26 Feb 2013
By Megan ReadingInTheSunshine TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I've been a big fan of Jill Mansell for many years now, and so like many others readers I was eagerly awaiting the release of her latest novel, Don't Want To Miss A Thing.

Dexter Yates loves his life - he spends his time partying, spending money and enjoying the company of women. But when his sister dies suddenly and unexpectedly, Dexter is left in charge of her eight-month-old daughter Delphi, with no clue where to begin or how to take care of her. Leaving the city behind, Dexter moves to the village of Briarwood, and finds himself living next to Molly,where is an instant connection between them...

I really enjoyed this! The best thing about Jill Mansell's books is that the writing flows so beautifully and is so engaging that as a reader we slip easily into the storyline and will happily devour the book over many well-spent hours. This was exactly the same for her newest release and before I knew it I was already half-way through!

The characters were fantastically written. Dexter in particular was very well formed and he had a lot of depth and layers to him. I especially liked how we not only saw Dexter's playful, partying side, but we saw some real and raw emotions in him too, and it made him very realistic and relateable as a character. I could feel Dexter's sadness when his sister died, and it made me connect with him more and reach out to him, and so I wanted to read on to see how he would cope and how he would progress. Delphi was adorable! Molly was brilliant - she made me smile and had me laughing throughout.

Another thing I love about Jill's books is that although there are many side stories as well as the main character's plot line, and so there are many characters for us to warm to, to cheer on and to share in a journey with.
