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.

Great book! Loved the story

What did you love best about Don't Want to Miss a Thing?

The story was really entertaining, and kept me listening even when I didn't have anything to work on (I usually listen to audiobooks while photoshopping and all that stuff) because I couldn't wait to hear what happened next. The narrator was really talented, and while male voices are often a challenge for female narrators, she did really well overall.

Who was your favorite character and why?

As soon as I heard Henry's description (Idris Elba, anyone?) I was in love. I'm a sucker for a gentle giant. Jill Mansell, as always though, creates a fun and lovable cast of characters that makes you wish you could run away and move to Briarwood.

Any additional comments?

Loved it - definitely recommend it. Worth the credit!
