Hated this book so much I couldn't finish it. I am sorry that I requested it from the Early Reviewer program. The characters felt so fake and were made of versions of what people think rich classy people are that I hated each one in turn as they were introduced. In the author's defense - it's not you, it's me.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I just finished this book and I loved it. The story is about a woman, Cassie, who finds out her marriage of 10 years was not what she thought it was. With the help of her best friends she begins a journey of putting her life back together and finding out who she is. Beginning in New York her friend Kelly shows her the world of fashion, something Cassie has never been that interested in. Cassie begins to come out of her shell when her friend Henry gives her a list, something of a bucket list to do while in the Big Apple. She works for Kelly, starts and relationship and makes friends and enemies. At the end of 4 months she is to go to Paris and live with Anouk, but things aren't so easy. She has made a life and she is not sure she wants to leave. She decides to go knowing she plans to return to New York one day. While in Paris she receives another mysterious list from Henry and begins to work through it. As she does, she meets Chef Claude who takes her under his wing. His life has been hard. Their friendship helps them both to start living again and have hope. While away on a honeymoon scouting trip with Henry (for Henry's wedding) things go horribly wrong and everything Cassie worked for is lost. Not knowing where to turn she leaves for London and her friend Suzy's. Suzy and her husband are getting ready to have their first child. Cassie begins to help Suzy with her wedding planning business to allow Suzy some rest. Suzy's younger brother, Henry, arrives and takes Cassie out to do the London list. Cassie has much to decide now. Who is she? Is she a mix of all the personalities she lived New York? Paris? London? She learns that there are many sides to her and she can have many likes. She can also find true love. I enjoyed the twists and turns of this book. I enjoyed the characters, the places and the lists. While the book is bigger than most that I read, it kept me interested from page 1 to page 580. If you enjoy romance this is your book.

Written in an involving and captivating style, "Christmas at Tiffany's" is a charming celebration of friendship and self-discovery. Married at age twenty to a man ten years her senior, Cassie had lived a sheltered life of rural privilege in the moors of Scotland. After a grand society wedding, her husband, Gil, a successful barrister from a wealthy family, had more or less kept her and their marriage isolated from most of the outside world. He had even made her agree to wait ten years before having the child she very much wanted. Now it was their tenth anniversary, and a party just as elaborate as their wedding was being held in celebration of their decade together. However, during the party Cassie's life comes apart at the seams as she learns of Gil's long-standing affair with Wiz, the woman who had befriended her in her rural wifedom. Cassie's three friends from childhood, her boarding school mates, immediately retaliate to their friend's side. Giving her a year of a lifetime, they in turns initiate her into their lifestyles in New York, Paris, and London. At times breathtaking, and at other times heartbreaking, Cassie's year is an amazing journey, encompassing a lifetime of living in just twelve months. Through it all, there is one other friend sharing her reaffirmation--Henry, the brother of one of her boarding school chums. It is Henry, the world traveler, who guides her along with notes and lists of things to do and places to see. When their paths cross, their friendship grows as something more begins to take seed. It blooms with a passionate kiss which changes the course of both their lives--but are their lives meant to be spent with one another? Along with their discovery of attraction, each of them must deal with unresolved personal issues. Can happiness be the destination they each will reach? A lovely story, filled with wonderful characters and delightfully descriptive writing, "Christmas at Tiffany's" is a gift from author Karen Swan. Review Copy Gratis Library Thing

Nice and cosy reading; interesting is the description of the three different cities.

I finished this one in about a day and a half. Then I handed it off to a friend who finished it in about as much time -- and this was in the couple of weeks right before Christmas. We both found it to be exactly what we needed at that time -- engaging, touching, light, and quick. A couple of quibbles: the book isn't enough about Christmas to have it in the title. I liked it more for it not trying to fill a holiday niche, but was definitely expecting more of the story to revolve around Christmas, given the title. Second, (and this may give some things away, so turn away if you're strictly no-spoilers) I really liked her eventual partner, but in the interest of forwarding the story (that the main character make choices without knowing how he feels about her), the author had to push him around a bit, making him suddenly sullen and child-like. Not only was he not like that through most of the book, but it was kind of a turn-off for their eventual reunion.

Title: Christmas at Tiffany's Author: Karen Swan Publisher: Pan Books (UK) Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: 4.5 Review: "Christmas at Tiffany's" by Karen Swan Book Description: "Three cities. Three seasons. One chance to find the life that fits. Cassie settled down too young, marrying her first serious boyfriend. Now, ten years later, she is betrayed and broken. With her marriage in tatters and no career or home of her own, she needs to work out where she belongs in the world and who she really is. So begins a year-long trial as Cassie leaves her sheltered life in rural Scotland to stay with each of her best friends in the most glamorous cities in the world: New York, Paris and London. Exchanging grouse moor and mousy hair for low-carb diets and high-end highlights, Cassie tries on each city for size as she attempts to track down the life she was supposed to have been leading, and with it, the man who was supposed to love her all along." What I liked about the novel.... This was some real interesting story for Cassie. There will be a revelation that will come to Cassie after she learns of a affair which involves her husband, best friend...and the child she thought was hers wasn't hers at all. So, what will she do after learning all of this information? Cassie decides to travel to three cities...New York, London and Paris to visit with her friends which are strong and supportive. What will she find from the visits with her friend? Will she finally find out just who Cassie is and what she wants to be? I loved how this author describes each city as if bringing it to life. Well for Cassie there will be an adventure which will present some highs and lows and even some grief, however, all of this will help her to really discover just who she is and even who she wants to love. This journey was beautiful delivered story to the reader showing such self discovery as Cassie encounter other cultures on her trips. The characters are all well defined, front and center right up their with the heroine with each one having their own intriguing story. The author really knows how to give the reader a engaging read that will hold your attention with you not wanting to put down until the very end. Be ready for a good read of friendships, love, joys and sorrows on this adventurous journey. If you are into a novel of friendships, travel, fashion and romance then you may enjoy 'Christmas at Tiffany's' where you will find 'self discovery, making good and bad choices and in the end it will be what will truly defined Cassie. Would I recommend? YES!
