Don't Want to Miss a Thing by Jill Mansell
The book follows Dex who is living the high life in London. With money, a great job and a revolving door of women he has it all. When his sister unexpectingly passes away, he becomes the guardian to her 8 month old daughter Delphi. He quits his job and moves to the quaint village of Briarwood where he meets next door neighbor Molly. Molly is a comic strip artist and the two form a friendship that is always closely leading to something more.
I love the little gossipy town where the villagers always seem to know everything minutes after it happens. There are few surprising moments in the book that I never saw coming and I always have trying to decide what couple will end up together. I love how Dex fumbles his way through raising Delphi. Most other men would have given up right away but he sticks to it and finally grows up.
If you are looking for a light easy romance to read make sure to place on hold on Jill's Mansell's Don't Want to Miss a Thing which is due out in November.
