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.
At first it started out pretty great. I was immediately drawn in to Dex's story and when Molly first showed up I was absolutely smitten.
But then the book started to spin off into other characters, ones not even mentioned in the synopsis. And that frustrated me. Especially because nobody is really given enough time for me to connect with them. It was just, "Here is the drama. Here is the resolution." And it displeased me because there was so much potential there.
I liked the beginning and the end... But the middle was just a bunch of filler. And I really cannot stand filler plot.
