Don't Want To Miss A Thing

A warm and witty romance with many twists along the way

By Jill Mansell

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A delightful, heart-warming novel about a man, a baby and a lot of surprises from the author of the Sunday Times bestsellers TO THE MOON AND BACK and THREE AMAZING THINGS ABOUT YOU.

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.
