A Review of Something from Tiffany's by Melissa Hill

It's Christmas Eve in New York City and two men, Gary and Ethan are buying very special presents for the women in their lives for the very iconic Tiffany's store in 5th avenue. Gary's girlfriend Rachel has paid for them both to go on the holiday of a lifetime to spend Christmas in New York and he decides than a silver charm bracelet is the perfect present to say thank you and also because he's left his Christmas shopping go far too late. Simultaneously, Ethan and his daughter Daisy are shopping the iconic store to but a very special present of a solitaire diamond ring for Vanessa, the first woman in Ethan's life since he lost his beloved wife Jane a few years earlier.

As both men leave the iconic shop a freak accident means that the two men's bags get mixed up and that Ethan ends up losing his ring as a result of being a good Samaritan. So with Rachel opening up her present to find Ethan's diamond ring inside, Gary finds himself engaged, while Ethan is desperately trying to get his precious ring back.

From here on in the story follows Ethan on his desperate attempts to reunite the ring with it's rightful owner. We follow him on his journey from his home in London to Dublin to track down Rachel and the ring. However, the more Ethan gets to know Rachel, he realises that she really has no idea that the ring is belong to him and that she really does believe that Gary wanted to propose the whole time. Gary refuses to believe that the ring is rightfully Ethan's and that the bags got confused during the accident in New York. Surrendering, Ethan heads home to London. He has all but given up hope of ever getting his ring back. But then Ethan finds out he may have a fairy godmother in the form of Rachel's friend Terri.

As the story progresses, you find that there is a lot more happening behind the scenes than you first thought, with Vanessa ending up as the villain and Gary turning out to be not as arrogant as you first thought.

The story moves along at a good pace, with the usual twists and turns that Melissa Hill is known and loved for. The first Melissa Hill book that I ever read, it has opened my eyes to world of stories that are just unputdownable! This book has also started off a fascination in me with a certain little blue box. It is a book you will read again and again and you still wont be able to put it down. It is a thoroughly entertaining and it has all the ingredients that make Melissa Hill's books so amazing. I would honestly say that this book is my favourite book, one which I have passed around to friends and family and everyone has found enjoyment in it! I couldn't recommend it enough, it really is a must read!
