Publisher's Summary

Dexter Yates loves his fun, carefree 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 neighbors. 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.

    "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.

    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

    "Fun listen"

    I enjoyed this book especially the introduction of several story lines connected to the main storyline. I thought the reader did a great job and I disagree with other reviewers who criticized the voice of Delphey. I thought it was adorable.

    "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.

    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.

    "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.

    "Great story about a whole cast of characters"

    Loved this book. It was both well written and performed. I loved that we were introduced to a whole host of characters and had several story lines to follow. I enjoyed that the characters weren't perfect. Everyone had strengths and weaknesses, confidence and insecurities. And I absolutely loved that everyone's story was nicely wrapped up by the end of the book. If you are looking for an easy listen that will make you happy and sad and then happy again, definitely give this one a try.

    "Great story, terrible narration."

    The baby noises in general are horrific. The screeching baby noises are unbearable. Please make it stop.

    "Fun and Entertaining!"

    Mansell depicts an entire community. Using humor, she deftly tackles a lot of topics that many romance novels usually avoid. It's kind of refreshing. She develops each and every character. Unfortunately, the narrator really struggled with children's voices but was fine with everything else.
