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.

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.

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.

- Rio Delta Wild "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."
