Cover of "Sundays at Tiffany's"

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, funnay 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. The she meets someone – a handsome, comforting, funny man. He’s perfect. His name is Michael….

James Patterson is widely known for his murder mysteries. Even non-readers know Alex Cross. “Sundays at Tiffany’s” is a stark contrast with its fantasy, loneliness, and heart ache. Patterson’s details make a scene jump off the page and lets me jump in for a bird’s eye view of the action. This attention to the details along with a moving plot and an unexpected twist set in the uniqueness of New York City gives the readers a page-turning novel to rival his murder mysteries.

And his characters – especially Jane and Michael – were people who I could easily empathize. His vivid descriptions create characters who my heart broke because I could somewhat relate and who I could easily fall in low with (If only he would move in next door!).

Sundays at Tiffany’s” is a nice change of pace from what readers associate with James Patterson.  For romance lovers, such as myself, it is a must read.  It is everything you expect from a romance novel and then some.
