Short Synopsis
In this charming novel from Jill Mansell, London playboy Dexter Yates meets cartoonist Molly Hayes. There's an undeniable connection between them, but is Dexter ready to leave his posh lifestyle behind him?

Full Synopsis
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.

"Allison Larkin reads this book with such sweetness and character, especially in the coos and raspberries of baby Delphi, listeners won’t be able to help but smile. Her crisp British accent is fresh and effective at creating the mood of this not-so-sleepy English village and its people." ---Library Journal Audio Review

"A little bundle of joy changes everything in this quirky chick-lit tale . . . charmingly well charted." ---Publishers Weekly

"Mansell keeps churning out hits with her signature blend of humor, romance, and multiple happy endings, and this book follows that formula with aplomb." ---Booklist
