The Charm Bracelet by Melissa Hill

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.
