Finding the courage to trust your heart can be the hardest thing of all...

Dexter Yates has the looks, the money, the swanky apartment, and girlfriends galore. But it's not until his niece, Delphi, is born that Dex falls in love for the first time in his life.

Then tragedy strikes when Dex's sister Laura dies in an accident. Suddenly, Dex finds himself a new parent and a single father to boot. With no idea how to raise an eight-month-old baby girl on his own, Dex decides to move into his weekend home in the small village of Briarwood in the Cotswolds.

The quirky neighborhood welcomes him with open arms, especially next--door neighbor and gifted cartoonist Molly who offers to help with Delphi. Molly won't put up with any nonsense and her messy romantic past makes her cautious.

If they can learn to trust each other, there might be a happily-ever-after for all three.

A fresh and fun British women's fiction and a great romantic book with plenty of humor and friendship.

Fans of Meg Cabot, Sophie Kinsella, Helen Fielding and Jennifer Weiner will love Mansell's quirky humor and the "will they, won't they" relationship between Molly and Dex.

A fun, light-hearted read that kept me smiling and wanting more. I want a part II!

A confusing and overall boring soap opera novel...

It's a good chicklit! You think you know what's going to happen, after 50 pages, but there's more to the story!

If you like English romance novels, you will love this! A modern Pride and Prejudice, the characters are real, funny and engaging. A grand total of 55 chapters written across 418 pages, make sure you set aside some time for this delightful novel. The descriptions, characters, and dialogue are classically British and easily sweep you into their world. A great beach/ summer vacation read that's light hearted and sweet.
