Sundays at Tiffany's
James Patterson and
Next to her mother, Jane Margaux feels insignificant. She is "fat" (she's not 110 pounds and stick thin), not chic, and always in her mother's shadow. Vivienne Margaux is a Broadway show producer and is flamboyant, running down everything in her way. Jane is the nice one who lets her mother run her over - even to the decoration of her apartment and choice of dates.
When Jane was small, she had a best imaginary friend, Michael. He supported her in everything. He kept her company when no one else seemed to be there for her. On her ninth birthday he told her goodbye. He also told her she would forget him. But she didn't. Jane eventually wrote a two person play about her relationship with Michael. The play was a success and now is being sold as a movie. Once again, Vivienne is trying to direct Jane's decisions about the new project.
Jane is dating the actor who plays Michael in the stage show. She knows that Hugh McGrath's main concern is Hugh McGrath. Yet she is flattered he takes time for her. She also gets angry when he acts like a selfish jerk. Then he wins his way back into her life. What she needs is another Michael - a man who will accept her and appreciate her for what she is rather than how she can help him get ahead.
One day she visits one of her favorite childhood haunts in New York City. She notices a man across the room talking with a woman. Is that Michael? By the time she gets a chance to follow up, he's gone. Who could that man be?
Sundays at Tiffany's is a completely different type of book than James Patterson's normal suspense novel. My guess is that it is Gabrielle Charbonnet's book with his editing and additions. Sundays at Tiffany's is a charming, cheesy light romance novel that warms the heart. The twist at the ending adds to its enchantment.
This is fluff reading that is a delightful escape for a few hours. I must admit, I'd love to have a Michael in my life. Then again, what person wouldn't?
