It's been two years since Ethan Greene and Gary Knowles collided one fateful evening outside Tiffany & Co. on Fifth Avenue. A mix-up with their shopping bags sent each man's life on an unexpected trajectory, and while Gary and his fiancée, Rachel, are heading for the altar, Ethan's love life is not so settled. Will the romance of New York and Tiffany's work its magic on the couples once more?

"The kind of book that you can't put down." (Sunday Independent on Something from Tiffany's)
"More twists and turns than a rollercoaster - a cracker of a read." (Mail on Sunday on The Last to Know)
I love Melissa Hill's books and have read many of them as print editions and ebooks. I enjoy her style and would choose her books in future.
As for Noreen Leighton's narration, however, I'm not sure - it was mostly enjoyable but her emphasis was sometimes incorrect, which jarred for me, and her range of regional accents varied in accuracy. The Irish and "narrator" (standard RP) accents were great and her American accents were passable enough (although listeners more familiar with American accents might have picked up on more flaws). Unfortunately in "Winter in Venice" there's a couple from Newcastle but Leighton's Geordie accent left a lot to be desired, which made the passages featuring Naomi and Max quite difficult to listen to.
I think the thing I liked best was the main story, "A Diamond from Tiffany's" which is a sequel to "Something from Tiffany's". It was good to catch up with the characters from that book. I especially liked the friendships and the way the characters related to one another in that story.
Gentle, comfortable, patchy.
Yes, despite the periodic difficulties with the narration it was an enjoyable listen.
