    "great story, narrator issue"
    What aspect of Alison Larkin’s performance would you have changed?

    I disliked the high-pitched imitation of the baby noises, very irritating. Other than that...its good.

    I enjoy mysteries, NOT thrillers, contemporary fiction, especially about diverse cultures, and sometimes history, if it doesn't involve too many dates. I often listen to a book multiple times, discovering unnoticed details in the retelling.

    "an entertaining village"
    Would you listen to Don't Want to Miss a Thing again? Why?

    yes. I've already listened to it twice. I just love the characters and the different plots and subplots.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story concentrated on the wide range of goodness one finds in humanity and the silly predicaments we find ourselves in.


    What about Alison Larkin’s performance did you like?

    For the most part, she did good vocalizations which set the characters apart as distinct.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved the part where Henry saved the day.


    Any additional comments?

    Alison Larkin's baby noises were annoying, but on the second listen I suppose I was ready for them.

    Any additional comments?

    The story line was pretty good but the narrator acting like the baby is awful! Hopefully on future readings she won't do those baby noises.

    "Love!"

    I adore Jill Mansell's books and this one didn't disappoint. She writes wonderful and relatable characters and I always end up reading her books from beginning to end in one sitting.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how it was based in a small village and you followed a few different stories.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a lovely story. Once I started, I couldn't stop listening. There were a few twists and turns that I didn't see coming in the story. All in all, another fab Jill Mansell book

    "Easy listening fun story"

    Loved the characters and the setting for the story. Some good laughs thanks. Only part I didn't like was the voice for the baby.

    "Thoroughly enjoyable chick lit"

    This book was very typical Jill Mansell. I like that there are multiple story lines going on, each with interesting characters. The narration was solid (though not outstanding), though I do agree with another reviewer that her voice for the baby Delphi was quite annoying. If you like British chick lit, I'd recommend it.
