Oh dear. I liked the premise - the idea of a mistake leading to such confusion but this was nowhere near enough to sustain a novel of this length. It would have been great for a short story but it was a struggle to keep reading it because the characters were so wet and annoying. All it required was a question to be asked and yet it never was - the reasons for not doing so made the guy look so pathetic, he didn't deserve a happy ending. I've liked Ms Hills other stories but this didn't work for ...more

Right. Well I have officially lost a few brain cells/grey matter to this book as well as my precious and ever-fleeting time and well at least one of those things I am POSITIVE that I will not be getting back.
This book was absolutely RIDICULOUS!! The only, and I mean only reason why I finished it was because despite myself (and my hard-earned time and grey matter) I really wanted to know who would stop being a jackass - within the plethora of mindless and utterly

A frustrating, annoying book that could have been settled by one of the characters just opening their mouth and asking for something. I sussed the ending straight away and could have happily slapped all the characters barring Daisy, the 8 year old. Loathed it and expect better from Melissa who has written some darn fine books in the past.
Tiffany's..AAh, that sound itself can make any women sweep off her feet. Wow, "Something From Tiffany's" is a very beautiful and charming book. This book has got everything from LOVE to deception, from heart-break to falling-in-love. I don't know after reading this how much being in love with the characters you'll feel, but I must say, you'll definitely fall in love with Tiffany's Store.

This is about two guys- Ethan and Gary buying their special something for their gals. It's Christmas time, no

A book beautifully written by Melissa Hill.

The book is about two men who bought a gift for their girl at Tiffanys Christmas Eve.

Gary Knowles, a self-conceited, bike-enthusiast whose business is going down the drain. While in New York, he got preoccupied with shopping for himself that he forgot to get a gift for his girl, Rachel Conti. He thought of buying her something that would level the generosity of Rachel, for she solely payed their holiday trip for Christmas. Tiffanys was the first shop he

Love this cover!! Wow.. there were so many twists and turns and lies in this story that I couldn't wait to read what happened next. I wasn't expecting that. I was fidgety through out most of the book waiting for the point when everything would be revealed. lol

I genuinely felt bad for Rachel because not only was she deceived by the man she loved, but by her friends also. I honestly don't know how she forgave them~I'm not sure I would have been able to. Oh...Ethan...he told so many lies that I

Starting in New York and moving to London and Dublin, where we don't see much of the locations, this light romance follows a diamond ring which is bought for one lady but gets swapped for a different package and ends up with another lady. Only one man had been intending to propose.

The book feels padded with some repetition and could have done with editing for length; but the editors may have asked the author to plump it up a bit because they could price it more highly. Characters are neatly

JoAnne's review was first posted at Romancing the Book's blog.

I like stories set at Christmas and felt I could relate to this one since most of it took place in New York where I grew up. There was romance, love, family, lots of deception and discourse by all, a child that got dragged into every adult situation, and storylines set in England and Ireland as well as New York . The description of all the locations made me feel I was there since I could visualize the

During December I like to take a break from my usual books and read fluffy Christmas stories. Nothing wrong with that, they are fun, frothy little snowflakes. Usually.
Unfortunately, this isn't a Christmas story. It is a story which feels that the holiday connection is tacked on at the beginning and end. This story could take place anywhere at anytime. The Tiffany's connection could be any Tiffany's store in any city. I didn't get any feel of New York City at Christmastime. And again, it doesn't

I picked it up on a Christmas' book sale and I have to say that after reading such a heavy book, Something from Tiffany's does have its own magic to make me feel light again! With the current state which I am in right now; my chaotic life (which I am sure what most of us are having too), this book is a good diversion from reality. I think I can imagine, how every girl in the world would swoon over a diamond ring or any jewelleries from Tiffany's. Having said so, I would admit that the sight of ...more

Fabulous Book Fiend
I loved Something from Tiffany's. It was a page turner right from the start. The fact that it is set in New Yorks to begin with, sets the book up to be a great one. The characters are easy to get to know and like and it will have you craving some freshly baked bread. The book also keeps you guessing in the manner of watching an episode of desperate housewives or a seriously good romcom. There were twists and turns making me gasp right up until the last page. I applauded the final page, it was ...more

At the same time Gary needs a last minute gift for his girlfriend Rachel and heads into Tiffany's as well and buys a charm bracelet.

Something From Tiffany's is an absolute joy to read. Melissa Hill creates characters that the reader can really relate to - none of them are perfect, they all have their quirks, but they are all great to read about.

Absolutely lovely book! Way to end my 2012 reading challenge. After Cecilia Ahern, I think I'm loving European authors more and more because of Melissa Hill.

Something from Tiffany's is a runaway winner when it comes to coming up with big twists. By the time you thought you had things figured out and have already invested so much on an angle you thought you've cracked, Melissa Hill comes up with another surprise. Well, I guess it's just about apt considering that that's the entire theme of the

I really enjoyed this book. At first, I was put off by the front cover and despite enjoying the blurb, I thought it looked a bit tacky and put it back down again. I picked it back up as it was on a 3 for 2 offer and I needed a third book, but I wasn't disappointed! I wizzed through this book in under a week with very little time to spare. It was fun, exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat until the end. There were so many twists and turns that surprised me and after reading a really heavy ...more

I Enjoyed this book very much story was a bit different.From the start you are transported to the gorgeous location of New York at Christmas,
The characters in this book are heart-warming and the storyline has some surprising twists,
The star of the novel is Daisy; Ethan's 8 year old daughter..I found this book fun, engaging and a real page turner,
It's actually 3.5
It was 4 all the way until the ending which is unexpected but just doesn't come naturally considering everything that happens in the book.
I don't want to spoil anymore, but the ending is not convincing.

Something From Tiffany's, Melissa Hill

As far as I recall, Melissa Hill won a publishing contract on some daytime TV show writing contest. I read her first book many years ago, back when chicklit formed almost the entirety of my reading staple, and remembered being impressed with the twist in the tale. That, and the fact that the name 'Tiffany's' awakes my inner magpie, led me to read this book.

Well, Tiffany's has got a lot to answer for. So do the people who let a rank amateur get not just one,

If anyone has had the wonderful experience of getting that blue box neatly tied up with a white ribbon then you know that feeling, that wonderful feeling of excitement knowing that it is Something from Tiffanys. For many of us it may not be a sparkling diamond that has the ability to decapitate people its so large, yet that box still holds a magical feeling. In this latest novel brought to us by Melissa Hill she has captivated the magic of the little blue box with her wonderful use of language. ...more

Oh my. This book. I just picked it up at a secondhand bookstore as a light English read (I'm not a native), some cute little chick book. I didn't really expect too much. Two guys taking each others's jewelry shoppings by accident? Not a really original concept, I said. I thought it would be a predictable read. And I felt that way throughout most of the novel, even with the occasional twists, which should have been an indicator for me. At the end, it turned out to have a completely different ...more

I wasn't expecting this to be a GOOD book. I figured it would be the literary equivalent of those cheesy holiday movies that Lifetime/ABC Family/Hallmark Channel play nonstop from Thanksgiving until New Year's Day. You know what I'm talking about: Two insanely attractive people, probably veterans of some soap opera or the original 90201, have trouble finding love or are with the wrong partners, and through a series of corny mix-ups and declarations of love (lit perfectly by candlelight), they ...more
