Books Read: Melissa Hill - Something from Tiffany's

Source - Bought (Amazon)

Doesn't every girl dream of getting something from Tiffany's?

It's Christmas Eve. And 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 Christmas 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. And as Ethan tries to reunite the ring with the woman it was actually intended for, he finds it trickier than expected.

Does fate have other ideas for the couples? Or is there simply a bit of Tiffany's magic in the air?

Picture the scene, you're exchanging gifts with the woman you were planning to propose to and instead of her looking at the expensive ring that you had picked out for her, she is instead looking at the charm bracelet that Gary had purchased for his girlfriend Rachel.

Ethan realises that the mix-up happened when he and daughter Daisy were good samaritan's and helped out when Gary was knocked down by a taxi. He realises that in the aftermath the bags must have been switched so he tries to make contact with Gary to arrange to swap back.

Meanwhile, Gary's girlfriend finds the Tiffany's bag whilst he is in hospital and couldn't resist peeking and after seeing the ring she thinks he's going to propose.  When he's released they exchange gifts and he's shocked into proposing to Rachel when he sees the ring.  He decides not to look a gift horse in the mouth and decides that although he hadn't planned on proposing he could do worse.  At this stage of the book I could really have swung for Gary as he certainly comes across as a bit of a jack the lad.  Meanwhile, Rachel seems like the put upon girlfriend which I did struggle somewhat to relate to especially as she is described as being someone who is a sucessful Bistro owner.

The rest of the book deals with Ethan trying to contact Gary to arrange for a swap back of the gifts especially as daughter Daisy is blaming herself as she was the one holding the bag in the first place. 

So will Gary own up to Rachel and give the ring back to Ethan and will they stay together afterwards?, does Ethan finally propose to his girlfriend Vanessa with the ring?, you'll have to read it for yourself to find out what happens next ...
