I always look forward to reading a Jill Mansell book, and this one was as entertaining as the previous ones.
Don’t Want To Miss A Thing is yet another story filled with delightful characters who you grow to love as the plot progresses. Dex is a character who draws you in because he goes from playboy to dotting uncle and sometimes he melts your heart, sometimes you’re frustrated with him.
And then there’s Molly, his next door neighbor who you know is perfect for him and that’s part of the fun of reading this story.
Along with these two main characters, there are the secondary ones who are just as fascinating, and with problems of their own which provide interesting sub-plots.
The setting is also great and Ms. Mansell makes the quaint English village come to life. Dialogue as always was realistic, and despite this being over four hundred pages long, it’s fast paced.
If you’re looking for something to add to your fall reading list, this might be one for you to try.
