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.

Great book! Loved the story
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.
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.
Loved it - definitely recommend it. Worth the credit!
