Don't want to miss a thing | Review

I'm really sorry I haven't posted in a few days but I've been in a really crappy mood and I didn't want to be negative on my blog. I'm all happy and cheery now so I thought I would do a review of 'Don't want to miss a thing' but Jill Mansell. This is going to be a quick review just because the book didn't really interest me that much, while the story and the characters were good it was just a little confusing to follow.

I did enjoy this book but for me it seemed a bit hard to follow. The main character Dexter is left to look after his niece when his sister dies. It follow's his story of how he moves into the country and tries to look after the baby. While all of this is going on there is a girl who finds out that her dad has been living virtually another life with another family. 

Don't get me wrong this was a great book but I cant help feeling that it would have made two brilliant books instead of mixing the two. They are both (In my opinion)
major plot lines that could have easily had a book of their own with further development of the characters and plot. 

The main plot is based around Dexter but the other plot comes into play a little way into the book. I did enjoy it as I love Jill Mansells book but it became a little hard to follow as it jumped between stories.

Bye for now xxx
