Something from Tiffany's by Melissa Hill
Doesn’t every girl dream of getting… something from Tiffany’s?
On 5th Avenue in New York City, two very different men are shopping for gifts for the women they love.
Gary is buying his girlfriend Rachel a charm bracelet. Partly to thank her for paying for their holiday-of-a-lifetime to New York. But mainly because he’s left his shopping far too late.
Whereas Ethan’s looking for something a little more special – an engagement ring for the first woman to have made him happy since he lost the love of his life.
But when the two men’s shopping bags get confused, and Rachel somehow ends up with Ethan’s ring, the couples’ lives become intertwined.
As Ethan tries to reunite the ring with the woman it was actually intended for, he discovers this isn’t that easy. Does fate have other ideas for the couples? Or is there simply a bit of Tiffany’s magic in the air…
An enjoyable enough but easily forgettable seasonal read about two couples whose Tiffany packages get mixed up with disastrous consequences.
In his quest to find the engagement ring that Ethan was meant to give his girlfriend, he meets Rachel who should have received the charm bracelet that Ethan gave to his girlfriend. What a mix up, eh. Like all good chick lit stories things never run smoothly.
I must admit I was annoyed with Ethan not having the guts to deal with the situation quicker than he did.
I thought Ethan's little girl Daisy stole the limelight, she blamed herself for the mix up as she'd been charged with looking after the ring. All the way through she kept reminding Ethan what her Mum had said before she died and as a result of this she instantly liked Rachel.
I didn't see the twists in the story and this made me enjoy it even more as I hate it when I can second guess what's going to happen.
If you're looking for something to read in the long winter nights then this is just the ticket. 6/10.
