The characters are well drawn and believable, Dex being just one of the cast in this witty, sometimes sad, but mostly happy story.
This is only the second book by Jill Mansell that I’ve read, but it doesn’t take long to realise that with her books, everyone will end up happy ever after with all loose ends tied up. The writing style flows and is pleasing to read, the humour natural and unforced, and the conversations very lifelike, which isn’t always easy to achieve. This was a really welcome change to my usual more intense book choices of crime/thrillers.
So, even if the story line is sometimes predictable, I really do recommend the book to anyone who wants a light, easy to digest read, you won’t be disappointed. I read it in two huge chunks, as I really did want to see how she would sort out everyone’s complicated lives :)
Anyway, this book is another winner from Jill but its not her best. Molly was too miss perfect for my liking. I would have also like more comeuppance for one of the male characters whom I won't name but things seemed to fizzle out there and he never really got what he deserved for the pain caused.
But Dex and Delphi were very well written, I loved getting to their chapters and rooting for them both.
Why I've only given 3 stars is the use of words in the story that are faintly printed, which i found very off-putting and distracting. I'm not sure if it was the publisher's fault or the way Jill wrote it but it ruined the book for me. Such a shame as i was enjoying the funny side of a playboy bachelor trying to bring up a baby and the sicky, pooey descriptions. I loved Dexter and Molly and the way Delphi's baby talk was described.
The way she manages to introduce so many different characters and then tie them all together beautifully is quite amazing.
There is no doubt that the baby in this story is definitely the heroine, but all the other characters are just so totally right. None of them too saccharine sweet, all of them totally human.
Thank you Jill Mansell for another super book.
I liked the fact that later in the book some of the minor characters did things I wasn't expecting , so book wasn't predictable in those aspects and I always enjoy being challenged by a story line.
The writing was good, I enjoyed the way the characters were written and I liked the story line and sub stories.
