James Patterson & Gabrielle Charbonnet; Sundays at Tiffany's

  • Mass Market Paperback: 320 pages
  • Publisher: Vision (June 1, 2009)
  • Language: English


Jane Margaux is a lonely little girl. Her mother, a powerful Broadway producer, makes time for her only once a week, for their Sunday trip to admire jewelry at Tiffany's. Jane has only one friend: a handsome, comforting, funny man named Michael. He's perfect. But only she can see him. Michael can't stay forever, though. On Jane's ninth birthday he leaves, promising her that she'll soon forget him.


Years later, in her thirties, Jane is just as alone as she was as a child. And despite her own success as a playwright, she is even more trapped by her overbearing mother. Then she meets someone-a handsome, comforting, funny man. He's perfect. His name is Michael . . .


This is a heartrending story that surpasses all expectations of why these people have been brought together. With the breathtaking momentum and gripping emotional twists that have made James Patterson a bestselling author all over the world, SUNDAYS AT TIFFANY'S takes an altogether fresh look at the timeless and transforming power of love.

My Review

 I enjoyed Sundays at Tiffany's. I am not sure if it was because of the unlikely-ness of it. It brought warmth, hope and had me wondering all the way to the end if this would end on a positive note. Jane's life growing up consisted of famous mother and a father who was to busy with his new trophy wife to give Jane any attention. That's what Jane's life consisted of until her imaginary friend Michael comes into the picture. Like two peas in a pod they were together. Of course over time you grow out of imaginary friends. Life makes you grow-up and your imaginary friend has to move on to help another child. This leaves you wondering Is fate the strongest thing in the universe? Could you fall in love with someone imaginary?  As all of James Patterson's books this leaves you questioning what you would do and how you would react to love. 
  Though I enjoyed this book, I felt it lacked something. I still can't put my finger on it. I would recommend this. Especially to love cynics. If you do read it please and you feel there was something missing and you found it, post the link to the review.

I always found it interesting how a writer that is more well known for crime fiction type novels can actually venture into a world so different from that start. James Patterson (along with his multiple co-writers) always seem to get the job done and quite well! Enjoyed the review! Thanks for sharing!
