Don't Want to Miss a Thing, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Jill Mansell's bestseller DON'T WANT TO MISS A THING is 'bursting with humour, brimming with intrigue and full of characters you'll adore' Heat.

Not to be missed by readers of Jojo Moyes and Veronica Henry.

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.

Review by

Now this was a pleasant surprise indeed. Somehow I've had in my head for a long time that I really can't stand Jill Mansell books, but I picked this one up to make up the numbers for a 3 for 2 deal, and absolutely loved it.I really enjoyed having the male and female points of view of a budding romance, and also other viewpoints from the key villagers and neighbours of the couple concerned. There were also some passages which made me cry, particularly at the beginning with the loss of our hero's sister (in the blurb, so no spoiler).The comedy and social irony is just spot on, and the baby wasn't too intrusive - I'm not a baby fan, so it's definitely not a gooey book (thank goodness). The story made me laugh and it made me cheer, so what more can I ask for? I will be trying more Mansell books in the future.
