Publisher's Summary

An irresistible, heart-warming novel from the much-loved author of numerous Sunday Times best sellers, 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.

A pleasant hotchpotch of a story

On the plus side there was far more going on in this story of a boy meeting a girl with a cute baby thrown in, than I expected. On the minus side I thought the vast array of characters made the storyline a bit cluttered and unfocused. The narrator performs with infectious enthusiasm and whilst her reading was a bit hammy in parts it made me smile.

Overall this tale has a big heart and I certainly don't regret listening. If you are looking for an undemanding holiday read this is thoroughly recommended.

Didn't Miss a Thing Thank Heavens

Would you listen to Don't Want to Miss a Thing again? Why?

Clare Corbett's reading of the book, with her wonderful Bristolian and West Country accents was not only nostalgic but absolutely perfect for an ex-pat Bristolian like me. Jill Mansell is a great storyteller. Everyone got their just reward and lived happily ever after. Don't expect a serious intellectual read - it's chick-lit at its best.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Maggi - she was the most lovable character.


Have you listened to any of Clare Corbett’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No but I hope to find more.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Smiled a lot.


Any additional comments?

For me, Jill Mansell can't be faulted.
