Sunday's at Tiffany's is a love story to read with a mug of hot chocolate (with marshmallows!) and a warm blanket, on a cold winter night. Kinda like I did, tonight. =) It's a warm-fuzzy story that you could get into, but it requires an imagination and a willingness to forget that Patterson wrote the Alex Cross novels.

The story is about Jane Margaux and her imaginary friend, Michael. Michael helps eight-year-old Jane deal with an overbearing mother and an out-of-the-picture father. Like most imaginary friends worth having, Michael is warm, caring, funny, charismatic, and really really good with kids. When Jane turns 9, Michael has to leave, and tells Jane that she'll forget all about him.

Twenty-three years later, Jane's all grown up. She works for her overbearing mother, and has a successful play under her belt. Her boyfriend is a gorgeous actor, and life's looking up. She thinks. As for Michael, he's on sabbatical, taking a break between kids. While walking around town one day, he sees Jane - grown up Jane.

Then Michael and Jane meet, and Jane realizes that she's not only NOT forgotten about Michael, she thinks about him every day. And off they ride into the sunset. With a side trip to discover why he's there, at that particular time.

This is a sweet, sappy love story. Nowhere is it mentioned exactly what Michael is, or how he doesn't age in the twenty-three years that he's gone from Jane's life, which is where that imagination comes into play. =) Grab it to curl up with on a cold night, or to take to the beach.

Don't forget to check out my giveaway, before January 24th!

I really enjoyed this book. I love his romancey type books and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next time.

drey said...

Dar ~ I've never read any romancey-type books by Patterson, and this wasn't bad at all! =D I'm always leery about trying new authors, or trying new things by authors that I'm familiar with, so this was actually a pleasant surprise.
