Dearly Devoted Dexter begins much like the television show starts at season two, and it's true that Dexter and Rita end up engaged, but there is something very very different about the series from the television show. In the television show the Cody and Astor are traumatized, but normal kids. In the novels they have been so traumatized as to become mini-Dexters. It's far easier for the audience to realize than it is for the kids to realize it.

The rest of the plot is the other section that was combined in season one. This one centers on Doakes, but rather than getting rid of him they just turn him into a monster, which is why he recognizes Dexter and no one else does. The actual monster that Dexter and the rest of the Miami PD are hunting is really scary though. Of all of them he is by far the creepiest.
