Summary

Christmas at Tiffany's is an exciting, globetrotting story of friendship and romance from Karen Swan.

Cassie settled down too young, marrying her first serious boyfriend. Now, 10 years later, she is betrayed and broken. With her marriage in tatters and no career or home of her own, she needs to work out where she belongs in the world and who she really is.

So begins a yearlong trial as Cassie leaves her sheltered life in rural Scotland to stay with each of her best friends in the most glamorous cities in the world: New York, Paris and London. Exchanging grouse moor and mousy hair for low-carb diets and high-end highlights, Cassie tries on each city for size as she attempts to track down the life she was supposed to have been leading, and with it the man who was supposed to love her all along.

Christmas at Tiffany's is followed by the captivating sequel, Summer at Tiffany's.

Best To Date!

Fabulous book! Thoroughly enjoyed it from beginning to end. Great story with authentic characters and extremely well narrated.
Christmas at Tiffany’s is witty and funny, sad in parts but always beautifully crafted .
This has been my best Karen Swan book to date and will remain a favourite for a long time to come.
Hate to say goodbye to the characters. They have become good friends.

Christmas at Tiffany’s - mixed reaction

I wanted to give up on this book so many times in the early chapters as it seemed to be just a series of name dropping episodes to show off how well the author and her characters knew their designer labels. This really ticked me off and I thought I’d stumbled upon a shallow and meaningless book which is not my usual fare. The book did improve in the last third and the shallowness of earlier pages was replaced with more depth. However it wasn’t sufficient to redeem the story as a whole in my opinion.
The performance was very good as several accents and characters were called for.

A great listen and fabulously narrated!

I really enjoyed this, and will be buying the sequel. That said, I really hope it's the same narrator as she was amazing!

Easy listening

I enjoyed this book despite its predictability. The insight into her characters lifestyles was fun and her description of the various cities imaginative. The narration was excellent.

Great story, loved the narrator

Really like this narrator such a lovely voice to listen too. Not as Christmassy as I’d thought by the title but really enjoyed the story. I would recommend as a entertaining feel good book that’s easy to listen too.

Enjoyable listen

I liked the characters.. Relaxing to listen to.. Interesting to read about the diffetent cities. I ve read a few of this authors books... Liked them. Relaxing romances.. But she really over uses the word "quipped".. I know it, but have never seen used or heard it in use. Started to become quite irritating in previous listens but in this book it was chronic! A shame because the stories are engaging.

Lovely story.

I loved this book. Dont let the accents put you off or the stylish friends that Cassie has, fussing over her clothes at the start . It's a story of friendship between four , very different , women , and their fondness for each other . But most of all it's a story about finding happiness again after being hurt . Its description of Paris , New York etc makes you feel you are there. There are unexpected twists to it as well that I didnt see coming. A lovely book to listen to in lockdown, with a wonderful narrator. The ending didn't disappoint either. This book should be listened to for everyone who needs to escape.

Perfectly Indulgent!

Although it’s not exactly a holiday book like the title suggests, it’s a great story that I thoroughly loved!!! New York, Paris, London - each city with dreamy possibilities and the author did such a good job of allowing me to live vicariously through Cassie as she found pieces of herself in each city. Can’t wait to read the next book!

Such a great escape!

I am a mysteries/thriller type gal, but for the past couple of years, I have treated myself to a Karen Swan book around the holidays. Her books are like romantic getaways, with descriptions of people, places and food that take you right there! The descriptions are just the right length, not overly descriptive, which drives me nuts, but just so that you can "see or taste" what she is describing. The romance is sweet and sexy.
Looking forward to reading more!

SLOW start...BUT A GOOD STORY!

I started this book with such excitement. I started to loose bit of steam towards the middle of the story, because the story just seem to go on and on. I was committed to finish this book. Honestly I'm glad I did. It turned to be a REALLY GOOD story.🙂🙂🙂

Fun Diversion

I am not a fan of rom com lit, but I couldn’t stop listening. Although some of the romantic scenes made me roll my eyes and the protagonist leaps from island to continent to continent to island, and conquers everything and everyone in her path in less than a year, there are elements of pretty good writing here.

Intriguing and not predictable

Swan’s stories are not what you expect with lots of twists and turns of the plot. You will not want to turn it off!

Just the story I was looking for

I stumbled across this book without looking but it turned out to be just what I was looking for. The narrator was perfect for the characters. Sometimes I think narrators are too old for the characters in the story and is off-putting. Not here.
I loved the premise and the locations where it took place. I knew that the cat and mouse chase would end where it did but I didn’t mind going along on the journey. It was glamorous and dramatic and romantic. I didn’t like the suicide but that would be my only complaint.
All in all a lovely little story.
