Giveaway! Sundays at Tiffany's by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet


AN IMAGINARY FRIEND
Jane Margaux is a lonely little girl. Her mother, the powerful head of a New York theater company, 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 eighth birthday he leaves, promising that she'll forget him soon. He was there to help her until she was old enough to manage on her own, and now there are other children who need his help.

AN UNEXPECTED LOVE
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 Michael again--as handsome, smart and perfect as she remembers him to be. But not even Michael knows the reason they've really been reunited.

AND AN UNFORGETTABLE TWIST
Sundays at Tiffany's is a heart-wrenching love 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 bestseller all over the world, Sundays at Tiffany's takes an altogether fresh look at the timeless and transforming power of love.




My Review:
What a delightful love story. I finished it on Valentine's Day--a perfect day to read a book like this one! But it would make any day a (*sigh*) day.

The characters are real--even the imaginary ones. Jane is the epitome of poor girl, rich girl. She has everything the world has to offer, and yet she has nothing of any significance. My heart aches for her. Michael plays a perfect companion--perfectly, and every reader will love him. But is he real or imaginary?

I found the plot a bit reminiscent to Pinocchio, the story of a puppet who becomes real. Unlike that tale, this story twists and turns a bit differently to keep the reader guessing. Until the very end--the epilogue, the reader does not know for sure.

It's written in first-person narrative with Jane's voice in one chapter, followed by Michael's voice. There's a bit of profanity included as well as some adult scenes.
