As you know, if you have read previous posts, I have been reading this book over the last few weeks. It was recommended to me by my daughter and she has really good taste in books. I have to say it was a page turner from page one and I had a hard time putting it down. It is one of those books that I am sorry to see end.
So, let's see. What are the elements of this story --
mystery? check. romance? check. tragedy? check. happiness? check. New York City? check. Christmas? check. jewelry? oh yes, check. vintage clothing? sigh -- check. Cute little indi boutique? Yes, please, check.
So, see, what isn't to like?
The only thing that was a bit odd -- and not in a bad way -- is that the author is British and even though the setting was NYC and the characters were American some of her wording was British. It wasn't a bad thing, it didn't detract from the book, I just noticed it.
